Motörhead's frontman, Lemmy Kilmister, has passed away at age 70. A full statement is expected to be released tomorrow. Rest in peace. "Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud".

Update: An official statement from the band can be read here.
There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

Michelle Garcia, writing for Vox:
Bell, then 18, and his mother sued the school to have his record cleared of any wrongdoing. Now his small-town case may reach the US Supreme Court (after the Fifth Circuit ruled in his favor in 2014), and there are much broader implications at stake: essentially, the First Amendment right to use rap as an artistic form of expression and a legitimate method of protest. That’s why rappers Killer Mike, Big Boi, and T.I., and artists like Favianna Rodriguez have joined scholars and legal experts in filing a 25-page amicus brief to the court in support of Bell’s freedom of speech on Monday. The brief acts as Hip-Hop 101 for the court, whose average age is...

For $50 a month you can call and text Atilla's frontman. Is it just me or does this dude come across as one of those faux-Instagram-rich douches?
$50 is a very reasonable price considering what you're getting. You aren't just getting access to blogs and videos, you're also getting a direct line of contact to reach me on my personal cell phone. Everyone has individual needs, so besides offering general advice, I am also offering you PERSONALIZED advice and guidance suited to your needs!

The Cure have re-recorded "A Few Hours After This" for the Christmas episode of Luther.
“I have been an obsessive fan of The Cure since I was 13," the show's creator Neil Cross told The Daily Record. “After we had finished shooting the second episode of this special, I phoned the producer and said there is this really obscure Cure track – an extra track on a 12-inch single called 'A Few Hours After This' – which I have always loved and think it would really go."

Jimmy Gregerson and Zach Johnson have left I See Stars.
I need to just clear the air since this continues to be awkward for me months after the fact and I just want it to be over with. I am no longer in I See Stars. I did not choose to leave, I was asked to leave. Why? I'm not really sure. I guess the rest of the guys felt they needed a change. I felt it was necessary to make this clear because as someone who was with I See Stars since day one I thought the fans deserved to know that I did not turn my back on them and walk away.

With the holiday weekend coming up we wanted to make sure you had enough time to download this week's episode of the Encore podcast early! So, we're coming at you today. That way you can download the episode for any long flights, drives, or just needing a way to drown out some drunk relative. This week's episode, as promised, is actually a special edition episode all about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It contains many, many, many spoilers. So, do not listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the movie yet! We basically run down every character, every plot point, and discuss what we liked, why, what we didn't like, what didn't quite work, and if our expectations were met and what we...
