At the Dropkick Murphys' show in NYC on Wednesday night, a Nazi made his way on stage and performed the Hitler salute during the band's cover of AC/DC's "TNT". As soon as bassist Ken Casey saw this, he shoved and started a fight with the offender. Videos of the incident are in the replies.
Lupe Fiascoreleased a new song about Jonylah Watkins, a 6 month old shot 5 times in Chicago on Monday. The song is a reimagining of her life and how she would have grown up and what she would have become if she were not killed. You can listen to it in the replies.
The Wonder Years put forth all of their energy at every show, but there's something special about seeing them in a small club. Both the band and the fans relished the intimate setting. Adding a strong line-up of genuine musicians - really, any band on the show could have headlined to a solid turnout - was merely the icing on the cake. Don't miss this tour if it's coming anywhere near you, because The Wonder Years probably won't be playing venues this small for a while.

Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one—the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI or else join the mindless ranks of Bat City!

What do we do? We make it easy for that guy who wants to sing in a metal, hardcore, punk or rock band (but doesn’t have the music-writing friend to help him) write songs. We also make it easy for someone struggling with writing their own music in a band get consistent by writing songs that they can learn, as theirs, and branch off from there.
How do we do it? You tell us what style you want your songs in based on specific...
Long lost and unreleased instrumental City of Caterpillar demo track. From the writing sessions that would have yielded their second album, the band broke up before finishing the songs or tracking vocals... and this is one of the few skeletons that remains.
If The Get Up Kids impregnated Saves The Day in the early 2000s, Thousand Oaks, CA, pop-punk band The Braces would be their illegitimate lovechild. They recently signed with Paper + Plastick Records, and they are one of my favorite new young bands of 2013. The band will be releasing its P+P debut, Two Years, digitally on April 9th (with vinyl coming later in the year), but we're giving you an early taste with an exclusive stream of a new song, titled "Scratches." Check it out in the replies or at the band's AP.net profile. If you dig it, you can digitally pre-order it for $7 here.
On the first night of Guns N’ Roses’ Aussie tour with ZZ Top, Rose threw his cordless microphone into the Perth crowd and broke a fan’s two front teeth. 39-year-old Darren Wright says he plans to file suit against Rose to pay for the AUD 5,000 (about $5154 US) dental costs to repair the damage.
Timberlake and Carell played men's shop employees helping Fallon buy a, yes, "Suit & Tie," only, everyone in the bit had to use mannequin hands instead of human appendages. Things got really weird when Timberlake had to measure Fallon's inseam. And JT could hardly contain his laughter when Carell pointed to exquisite suits from the Joseph Fatone and Lance Bass collections. "It's been in the closet for years ... we finally decided to take it out," Carell said of the Bass pieces as Timberlake bit his lip about the joke about his out-and-proud former 'NSYNC bandmate.
According to a recent podcast (Get Up On This #81), Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco announced that Panic! has been writing the past few months, and are going to finish their new album this month. He said that they are aiming to have it out this year.
We're not doing anything. We had an 'interesting' reunion experience a couple of years ago where we got together out of the blue and patched up old relationships and differences and just wanted to do some reunion shows. It turned out great and it was a lot of fun and we sort of accidentally wrote a song and we were like, 'OK, why don't we try to do a record?' We spent a lot of time writing an album's worth of songs and then went to record it in Los Angeles - all of the writing had been done up in the North West where most of the guys are located - and...
Head to the replies to check out Andrew McMahon playing a new song on tour called, "Synesthesia." The track seems to reference fun., "...and my friends are in the news, collecting trophies for the songs they wrote."
