A variety of events has hinted strongly at Fall Out Boy doing more touring in Europe this coming April. Pete Wentz stated on stage at the recent London show "we'll be back for Reading/Leeds ... or maybe sooner - wink wink." And then a day after the band was interviewed by a French radio station, OuiFM, the station mentioned the band would be playing L'Oympia in Paris in April.

Looks like Paramore's upcoming self-titled album will be clocking in at 64 minutes long, with the final track nearing eight minutes. That's a lotta bang for your buck.

It's been a few weeks but we're back with another countdown list. Since it's the first Monday of March, I thought I would list my five most anticipated records that are releasing this month. As we inch closer to spring and warmer weather (well, warmer weather for those who don't live in Los Angeles), I can see a lot of people looking forward to more upbeat jams - something you can blast with the windows down. So avoid the winter blues by checking out this list to dream about warmer days ahead. Join in the discussion in the replies with the albums you're most anticipating in the month of March.

Turn up the music and pray that she makes it through.

Patrick Stump posted an interesting blog about how we, as a society, define ourselves by hate.
How many people reading this are fans of Nickelback? How about Dane Cook? Now, I can safely assume that, unless this blog gets reposted on a site dedicated to those respective artists, those questions would be met with tumbleweeds and the distant sound of crickets. Like Creed or Limp Bizkit or the “Dude! You’re getting a Dell!” kid, they’ve become ubiquitously hate-able. I would not be exaggerating to state I’ve simply never heard someone admit to liking them.

Why is that? Now, I’m not saying I like them. Like you (fellow pop culture spectator) I am honor-bound by the unspoken law ...
