According to The Guardian, a recently released Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Anthem titled (translated) "The Ice and Snow Dance" sounds quite a bit like "Let It Go" from Frozen. Hit the replies to hear both songs for yourself.

We recently chatted with Fat Mike and Erin Burkett about the 25th anniversary of Fat Wreck Chords. Don't forget that you can also still enter our contest for a pair of tickets to the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years tour.
I think Rise Against is the only band that never really partied much. Thatís the label I want. A label with a bunch of drunk, drug using, non-religious fuck ups. Those are the people who will always play music because they love it.

Tom May (The Menzingers) has created the #IceburgChallege, a social media challenge similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge, but with the goal to get the person being nominated drunk instead of to raise money for charity. The premise is to perform some portion of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" immediately followed by taking a shot of whatever you have available. Drink responsibly.

Slipknot bassist Alex Venturella passed out during the band's show in Connecticut last night due to severe dehydration. He was rushed to the hospital, where he recuperated overnight, and he will be back with the band at tomorrow's show in Mansfiled, MA.
After a medical emergency during last night's show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex 'V-Man' Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his ...

Fresh off the heels of last year's underappreciated Alex I Am Nothing, Museum Mouth are gearing up to release a split with indie rock band Naked Naps. The band's messy, lo-fi punk-ish styles fit together well, as fans of one should find a lot to like in the other. If you're not familiar with either...imagine a Dikembe meets Joyce Manor meets Cloud Nothings sort of thing, except that it makes more sense than that description probably did. Today we're lucky to premiere one of Museum Mouth's tracks, "Wave Emoji," which can be streamed in the replies. If you like that, preorder the split via Too Far Gone.

PropertyOfZack is shutting down. Zack has written up a post about the decision to bring his website, and his two podcasts, to a close. The website will be featuring articles over the next week as it winds down.
My life is in a period of deep change and instead of risking integrity, happiness, or feeling guilt - I would rather PropertyOfZack say goodbye the right way. Timing is everything, after all. I havenít looked at our traffic in many months, but I appreciate the dedicated daily, weekly, or monthly readers of the site now more than ever. Iíd rather bid you a proper farewell than a lackluster finale. Burn out, not fade away.

"The reason 'Detox' didn't come out was because I didn't like it," he said. "I don't think I did a good enough job, and I couldn't do that to my fans, and I couldn't do that to myself, to be perfectly honest with you. I just wasn't feeling it."
