Not since the Dookie Days has being a Green Day fan looked so cool! Just absolutely legendary. As a guitarist myself, there have been many of jam sessions where I day dreamed about getting pulled on stage to play with some of my favorite. Even the thought of it has me roller skating in a buffalo heard. Then this guy comes up on stage, plays When I Come Around like he wrote the damn song, and stage dives into the crowd as Basket Case blares in the background. I’m pretty sure as a Green Day fan that’s about as good as it gets.
This brings up an always interesting debate. Continue reading “Green Day Fan Comes Around”
Roll up, for the latest assembly of slightly fading music stars taking the stage together under the guise of it being a “supergroup”. Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Rage Against the Machine – minus singer Zack de la Rocha – have reportedly come together as a new band called Prophets of Rage.
Billboard reports that the band will make their live debut on 3 June in Los Angeles, performing songs by all three bands.
A website called ProphetsOfRage.com launched earlier this week, carrying nothing but the the slogan #TAKETHEPOWERBACK and a ticking countdown to 31 May. The site was accompanied by posters around Los Angeles reading: “Clear the way for the Prophets of Rage. The Party’s Over. Summer 2016.”

On the way into work today, Behind Blue Eyes by the Who came on the radio. After blasting the ballad and enjoying the euphoria of early morning coffee, traffic, and the leftover beer feeling in my plums, I immediately listened to the song again on YouTube in my office. What oh what did I discover on the right hand side of the “You also might like” section of the world’s second best website? (behind Blog:30) but a Limp Bizkit cover of the very song.
It got me thinking about other songs where I feel the cover is way better than the original. That’s not saying I thought the Limp Bizkit version of Behind Blue Eyes was better, it isn’t, but I didn’t hate it. Here are my personal favorites, along with the originals.

Via: Hip Hop DX: Bob Ezrin has penned a scathing critique of Kanye West. The music producer and keyboardist, known for his work with Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel and Phish, writes in a post for Bob Lefsetz’s the Lefsetz Letter today (February 22) that West has made some great material, but that he isn’t on the creative level of some other prominent artists. “Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it’s unlikely that we’ll be quoting too many of Kanye’s songs 20 years from now,” Ezrin writes in the newsletter, which has tens of thousands of subscribers. “He didn’t open up new avenues of public discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick.”
Kanye went scorched Earth on this Ezrin dude tonight. Honestly though, being told you aren’t as influential as the guy who wrote a song about buying a moped is a pretty fair thing to lose your shit over. Especially when you’re the guy who brought the world Graduation. Continue reading “Kanye Losing His Mind Again on Twitter”
Is this whole thing getting kind of played out? Yeah, incredibly. Did I still laugh at some of these because I’m a simpleton and crass humor amuses me? Sure did. Is this a filler blog on a day where I’m busy with real life? Correct again.
Some of the highlights:

Via Deadline: “…from its NYC circa 1973 mean streets to blasting the New York Dolls, drugs and a body in the trunk of a car, you could call this 10-episode season GoodRecordFellas – in the best way. With its once-in-a-lifetime behind-the-camera trio and power chord-strong cast led by Boardwalk Empire alum Bobby Cannavale as struggling and stormy label boss Richie Finestra, Vinyl is a near note-perfect swaggering re-creation of a time when the misfit-attracting music biz was at the center of American culture and at its most influential.”
