The Grammys continue to disappoint rock, metal fans

Posted by on February 16, 2016

The Grammy Awards are done and over with, and if you were expecting a well-rounded ceremony that was inclusive of metal and rock, then you probably haven’t watched before.

Metallica (kinda) playing the Super Bowl

Posted by on November 2, 2015

Metallica should play the halftime show at Super Bowl 50. We’ve said as much, and sports analysts and industry luminaries like Metal Blade’s Brian Slagel agree with us.

…and justice for none: Bruno Mars, not Metallica, playing Super Bowl halftime

Posted by on September 9, 2015

Last month, we made a not-so-modest proposal that Metallica should play the halftime at Super Bowl 50. There were lots of reasons this made sense.

[youtube]http://youtu.be/QRXYnyvSQG4[/youtube] Belgian metal band Yata was working on their first album, when their guitarist, Carl G, passed away last week. The band have decided to continue on, and have released a video for their cover of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” Normally, we’d ask what the point of a death metal cover of a […]

Axl Rose takes aim at Chili Peppers’ halftime show

Posted by on February 5, 2014

As most people know by now, when the Red Hot Chili Peppers made their appearance at the Super Bowl’s halftime show to incongruously sing “Give it Away” in the middle of Bruno Mars’ set, they weren’t playing live.
