This was making the rounds yesterday, but: it looks like Dan from The Black Keys and Jack White have some beef.

At a recent show in Toronto, guitarist Jeff Beckman of 90s Canadian hardcore punk band Chokehold (A389 Records) punched a transgender woman over her opinions regarding the singer's thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. The band has prided itself on opposing gender discrimination, racism, sexism, police brutality and so on in their lyrics. The incident calls into question the authenticity of self-proclaimed socially conscious bands. Head to the replies to hear audio from the event.

Since the new Sleeping With Sirens album dropped yesterday, people have finally gotten the chance to give it a full listen. Well, it didn't take people long to realize that the song "November" sounds an awful lot like We Are The In Crowd's "Long Live The Kids" from their Feldmann produced Weird Kids. Head to the replies to compare for yourself, but it's pretty blatant to me.

Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack didn't like being heckled at the band's show in Vancouver, BC. Hit the replies for some of the fan filmed footage where Andy leaps from the stage to go fight the heckler.

Jack White has penned a letter clarifying his tour rider that was recently published by the University of Oklahoma's college paper. It's in the replies.
first off, this is none of your business, but i have no specific demands in my dressing room. i know i could ask for lots of things but i actually dont ask for ANYTHING. i take with me what i need, and that aint much. anything on the rider is for the band and the crew. this "guacamole recipe" is my hilarious tour managers inside joke with the local promoters, itís his recipe, not mine. itís just something to break up the boredom, seeing who can make it best.

Photographer Matt Burke has posted a blog about Steve Kopacz of Go Radio.
I have always been honest and very open with my life and my actions, both positive and negative, and now through a series of blog posts, Iím going to call people out who I feel are deserving of being exposed for being terrible. Donít like it? Sorry bout it.

Looks like The Dillinger Escape Plan aren't super happy with how similar The Ghost Inside's new album cover looks to one of theirs.
"If I saw the two next to each other, I would have personally asked to make a few changes and not make the vinyl the sameÖ I mean I wouldn't have let that slide personally but I don't give a shit what other bands doÖ I do feel bad that those guys have to deal with all this drama right now during the release of their album. I'm sure they worked really hard on it."

After The War On Drugs finally commented on Mark Kozelek's one sided feud with the band, Mark has already responded in typical douche fashion. He has released audio of him "covering" Adam Granduciel's remarks while playing a blues riff and laughing like a child after every comment. If you have any respect left for the man and feel like losing it, you can stream the audio here.

After being berated by Mark Kozelek for weeks in a one sided fight, Adam Granduciel of The War on Drugs finally broke his silence on the situation in an interview with Songs For Whoever.
I mean, to be fair to that idiot, what he said in that songÖ I didnít really have a problem with any of it until I heard the song. First of all, he never met us, and yet said all these things. Heís such a douche. I asked somebody if I could get his e-mail, because I wasnít trying to start this stupid Twitter thing, I was just bummed. I went to a mutual friend who explained that he wouldnít give out his e-mail address. So I just got an e-mail through this friend that said ďMark wants to come to the...

The xx's label Young Turks have called out Hugo Boss for their recent ad that sure sounds a lot like The xx's "Intro." Check out the videos in the replies.
