The US Justice Department has asked that the Insane Clown Posse's lawsuit, which ICP filed to defend their fans, be dismissed.
The government says the rap-metal duo from the Detroit area and its fans have no standing to sue. It also says it's not liable for any problems caused by law enforcement groups that might use information in the 2011 FBI report. A Detroit federal judge holds a hearing Monday.

It's a nice little acoustic track, and Andrea O'Connor's vocals have often been compared to Adele's. Yeah. So you should stream "Brothers & Sisters" in the replies, and if you like it, be sure to pre-order.

We've received the following message from Maura from Mixtapes in regard to yesterday's Warped Tour performance.
To clear the air a bit:

First of all, I wanted to say that what Ryan said was wrong and that I'm sorry for it, even if he isn't. As many of you may know who know Mixtapes, what was said on stage the other day was meant to be a joke and was said in a sarcastic manner. Ryan corrected himself on stage shortly after.

That being said, there are some things that just shouldn't be joked about in the first place and sexual assault is one of them. I know personally as I've been kissed and touched without permission multiple times on stage and off since being in Mixtapes and...

Multiple reports are coming in from Warped Tour that Mixtapes' frontman Ryan Rockwell said something akin to "fuck tigers jaw. kiss whoever you want" while on stage today. I feel like the response from Tiger's Jaw on Twitter says it best: "disappointing. You had an opportunity to promote respectful behavior towards others and you did the opposite. Bad look."

This week was good and somewhat stressful around the website. Now that the weekend has arrived, I'm looking forward to a few days of relaxing, World Cup watching, and good beer. However, before that begins, I wanted to highlight some of the best stories, exclusives, and staff content from the past week. In general I'm not a big fan of too many "recaps" -- but one a week doesn't seem too crazy. I've broken the stories down into a few major categories below. If this looks horrible on the homepage, I'll need a moment to fix our CSS a little bit. It's a work in progress and any feedback is definitely welcome.

I think the highlight of my week on the website was the launching of the latest...

Lana Del Rey has taken to Twitter (and it looks like since deleted) to respond to the Guardian article we posted about last week. Although Ms. Del Rey directly calls out "Alexis" (probably referring to Alexis Petridis who wrote the review of Ultraviolence for The Guardian), the author of the original piece was Tim Jonze. Tim Jonze has written a follow-up piece that includes the audio files from the original interview.
"i regret trusting the guardian- i didnít want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles Maybe heís actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about. His leading...
