Posted by on July 27, 2016

Posted by on August 11, 2014

If there’s one thing Rihanna probably knows, it’s her second-tier ’80s hair metal bands, amirite? Perhaps not, but that didn’t stop her from rocking a Krokus shirt at the kickoff of the Monster Tour with Eminem. If you’ll remember, she’s made some metal-themed sartorial choices before, like the jacket she wore that popped up on Chris […]

Posted by on June 4, 2014

While Mitch Harris is best known as the longtime guitarist of pioneering grindcore act Napalm Death, there’s more to him than just that.

Posted by on November 21, 2012

The metal blogosphere was thrown for a loop earlier this week when photos surfaced of pop star Chris Brown wearing a punk rock-inspired leather jacket adorned with patches from the likes of Municipal Waste, Cro-Mags, Suicidal Tendencies and Corrosion of Conformity.

Posted by on November 15, 2012

Digital radio and streaming services have been a hot button issue in the music industry, especially relating to revenue. So it’s understandable why many musicians would be unhappy that Pandora is lobbying lawmakers in U.S. Congress to pass the “Internet Radio Fairness Act,” which would change regulation of how royalties are paid to artists.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPR6qFei6VI[/youtube] Remember that collaboration that Metallica did with an artist that was totally out of place? No, we’re not talking about Lou Reed.  “Red Lipstick,” a song that’s available as a bonus track on Rihanna’s forthcoming album, Talk That Talk, contains a portion of Metallica’s “Wherever I May Roam.” Granted, it’s barely enough to register, […]
