There were too many bands that I wasn't familiar with, and I didn't like that. I turned to the staff and we came up with 20 bands that you may have overlooked for a special two-part edition of AbsolutePlaylist.

Flexible dual-coil humbucking pickups with Alnico-V magnets stand at the ready in the bridge and neck positions, routed precisely into a hand-carved mahogany top. The rosewood fingerboard sports...
After a "fan" mentioned they may never go to a New Found Glory show again since Steve is no longer writing the band's lyrics, Chad clarified on Twitter that everyone in the band has helped write over the years and not to worry about the band's next release.
we all wrote. I did my friends over you, story so far, singled out & like 30 others. He just liked saying that in interviews
The Beastie Boys had sought up to $2.5 million for copyright infringement and false endorsement. Monster countered that it owed no more than $125,000, calling the case "illogical" and saying an employee had mistakenly believed the company had permission to use the music.
Pharrell has found himself in a bit of trouble after he wore a Native American headdress on magazine cover. Shoulda stuck to the Arby's hat, pal. He has issued an apology: "I respect and honor every kind of race, background and culture. I am genuinely sorry."
It's come to my attention that Weezer have been posting studio updates and mini webisodes every Wednesday on the band's Facebook page.

If you remember, the band is currently recording with Ric Ocaresk.
