Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs is back with a new video, and this time he's putting a metallic spin on ten pop songs. "10 Songs in the Style of METALLICA" pairs Vincent with guitarist EROCK for a quick blast of what some famous tunes would've sounded like, had they been penned by James Hetfield and Co. So who gets the 'Tallica treatment? Taylor Swift, Outkast, Alanis Morissette, Abba, Toni Braxton, Britney Spears, Nickelback, Seal, Juvenile and Darude are on-deck. Check this out...

The past decade or so has been a rough one for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS. Guitarist Dean DeLeo, Bassist Robert DeLeo and Drummer Eric Kretz dealt with the increasingly erratic behavior of legendary frontman Scott Weiland, only to part ways and team-up with Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. Then, all hopes for an original lineup reunion were crushed when Weiland died on tour with his solo band, with STP embarking on a search for a new frontman. Then Bennington died earlier this year, putting a particularly dark lineage on the vocal spot in the STP lineup. Now, after reviewing thousands of submissions and conducting in-person auditions, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS has emerged with a new singer... one from an unlikely place: Michigan. After making their refreshed live debut in Los Angeles this week, STP's first new music with frontman Jeff Gutt has arrived. Listen to "Meadow" below, and see if you agree with me that it's capturing the classic STP vibe while charging into a new era...

Red Bull Sound Select is currently in full-swing with their 30 Days in Chicago concert series, and today we've got a new documentary from the folks at Red Bull TVThis and Nothing More: Chicago's Hip Hop Scene is an intimate portrait of three people in the Chicago hip-hop scene -- an up-and-coming, about-to-break female artist (Ravyn Lenae), a influencer/curator (Andrew Barber) and a poet/educator (Kevin Koval) – who are committed to living their lives driven by and in pursuit of their one true passion, hip-hop. Check out the 30 minute documentary below...

When it comes to music, one thing that's pretty stale is the habit of making fun of Nickelback. In fact, I only cite Possible Oscar's "How We Recycle" as an acceptable parody, but even that is old - originally from 2007. Nickelback has a new album out, and FEED THE MACHINE is doing pretty well in bringing the rock to the mainstream masses. With their new video, "The Betrayal Act III," they show off what they do so well - mixing the heavy and the poppy, essentially setting the bar for radio rock, but with some real punch. It's heavy but hooky at the same time. Check it out... it's completely acceptable to do so.

It's no secret that my favorite band of all-time is FAITH NO MORE. Founded in 1982, the band had a few different people on the mic before locking in with Chuck Mosley, who would be the voice of the band for their first two albums - 1985's WE CARE A LOT and 1987's INTRODUCE YOURSELF. While the band would find greater success after replacing Mosley with Mike Patton in 1989, the first two albums set the stage for what would become - genre-bending pieces of art that had a sound all their own. Mosley's vocals are unmistakably indicative of that early era of FNM, and several of the songs he sung have become timeless, remaining in the band's set list for decades beyond his work. Today, Chuck Mosley has died, and unfortunately his death is tied to the very thing that's long-been cited as a principal cause for his removal from his most famous band: addiction. A statement from his family is as follows...

OZZY OSBOURNE Has Announced His "Farewell" Tour...

Written by

The numbers are beyond impressive... Five decades.  18,262 days.  More than 2,500 shows. That's been OZZY OSBOURNE's life on the road, and today he's announced his "farewell" tour, on which the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy® winning singer and songwriter will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968).  This tour, expected to take OZZY around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows.

This Friday night, FM Entertainment & Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey present MOTOGRATER, PRODUCT OF HATE and IMPERIAL FALL on the House of Harley-Davidson Stage at Route 20 in Sturtevant, Wisconsin (get tix). For PRODUCT OF HATE, it's hometown show, and it marks the end of the album cycle and touring for their full-length debut, BURIED IN VIOLENCE. While Napalm Records released that album on February 5, 2016, the band actually started touring it almost a year earlier, hitting the road with Allegaeon (Metal Blade Records) and The Agonist (Napalm) in 2015. Later tours with the likes of Mushroomhead (Megaforce), Hammer Fight (Napalm), Sumo Cyco and Madame Mayhem would follow, with the band most recently spending nearly 40 dates on the road with the reunited Skinlab and IKILLYA (Urban Yeti Records). Now, as the two year anniversary of Buried in Violence approaches, PRODUCT OF HATE will close the book on Buried and set sights on Album #2.

As we roll toward Halloween, more "treats" have been arriving on a daily basis, and this weekend we have one from Bea Miller. From her latest release, Chapter Three: Yellow (out now on Hollywood Records) comes a lyric video for "To the Grave." "Halloween is my favorite day of the year, and because I have a song with a title we could play on, we made this for you. I hope you love it," said Miller about the new clip. Check it out below!

After decades of calling William Patrick Corgan "Billy" Corgan, it feels weird to type the man's full name. At the same time, I get it - much in the same way that I'm "James" and get weirded out when people call me "Jimmy" or "Jim," especially people I don't really know. Naming conventions aside, today we've got something unexpected from Corgan in the form of an acoustic performance of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" from the Cover Room on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. As far as I know, this is only the second Cover Room performance, with Kesha dropping by for "House of the Rising Sun" over the summer - a performance that's pretty much been erased from the internet, with the video being pulled from YouTube. Check out "Wrecking Ball" below...

When it comes to "critical" opinion, I'm in the group that really enjoyed David Ayer's DC Comics adaptation, SUICIDE SQUAD. In addition to the film itself being enjoyable in an almost-music-video kinda way, I really dug the soundtrack. It didn't fit the mold of what a superhero film usually receives, much less one from a universe typically known for sweeping cinematic scores. The fourth single from that record was "Gangsta" by Kehlani, used as a representation of the relationship between Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto). On this summer's PUNK GOES POP VOL. 7, New Years Day put their spin on the track, and now we've got an official video that finds Ash Costello channeling Harley, right down to an appearance of the classic suit straight out of Batman: The Animated Series. Check it out...

Some bands work perfectly with Halloween, and some bands bring the Halloween to every day. With their madcap theatrics and splatteriffic live shows, GWAR is one such band, and just in-time for Halloween 2017 they've unleashed a new album - THE BLOOD OF GODS. Out now on Metal Blade Records, The Howard Stern Show just played host to the music video debut for "I'll Be Your Monster" (see it below), and it's got an uncharacteristic 1970s vibe to it - a little Alice Cooper, perhaps with a dash of Motorhead thrown in. See the new video below, and look for THE BLOOD OF GODS on your favorite streaming service or at retailers now. It's a perfect addition to an updated Halloween playlist!

Industrial rockers Neon Coven released their debut EP, Risen, earlier this year via New Ocean Media, and now they're back with a fresh take on the Depeche Mode classic,Never Let Me Down Again”. It's a song that's certainly been covered by a few artists in the past, but Neon Coven have done well with it, and I dig it. Check it out below...
