Human collective behavior can vary from calm to panicked depending on social context. Using videos publicly available online, we study the highly energized collective motion of attendees at heavy metal concerts. We find these extreme social gatherings generate similarly extreme behaviors: a disordered gas-like state called a mosh pit and an ordered vortex-like state called a circle pit. Both phenomena are reproduced in flocking simulations demonstrating that human collective behavior is consistent with the predictions of simplified models.
Anti-Flag's Chris Barker, aka Chris #2, has released a new cover of Pete Seeger's "What Did You Learn In School Today?."
We were asked to play Seeger Fest this year celebrating Pete Seeger's life,” explains Chris #2. “In that process going over Pete's incredible collection of songs I stumbled over “What Did You Learn In School Today.” It immediately struck me. I just wanted to do a song that demonstrates why the medium of folk music can be so powerful. That melody lodges itself in your brain, yet the lyrics are tremendously visceral and poignant."

Probably the most interesting news of the day comes in the form of Sour Patch Kids (yes, the candy) opening a home in Brooklyn for touring bands. What's the catch? While the bands stay at the home, they have to create content for the brand via social networks, videos or music. What does everyone think about this?
Nevertheless, there is a quid pro quo associated with staying at the Patch. Artists who stay at the house are expected to create some content that Sour Patch Kids can share across a number of digital channels, which include a Brooklyn Patch-branded Tumblr as well as the brand's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Jon has been fired from Refused. Messages from the band and Jon are in the replies.
I was fired from Refused a while ago. I wasn’t given a reasonable explanation and wasn’t even invited to sit down and talk about it, so I'm not completely sure why they decided to go on without me. We’ve always been better at punk rock than democratic processes and dealing with conflicts, so I guess I’m not too surprised it went down like this.
