The English language had a good run.
That’s right – for the first time ever, the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is a pictograph: 😂, officially called the ‘Face with Tears of Joy’ emoji, though you may know it by other names. There were other strong contenders from a range of fields, outlined below, but 😂 was chosen as the ‘word’ that best reflected the ethos, mood, and preoccupations of 2015.

The Used have been around 15 years. That's longer than you've probably been alive (jk, we're all old now). To celebrate, the band are going on a pretty big tour around the US and Europe. The band will do two nights at each place, playing Self-Titled on Night 1 and In Love and Death on Night 2. Oh, and they're also releasing Live and Acoustic at the Palace on April 1st. ALL the details can be found right here.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Jeff Rosenstock.
Thank you for reaching out and saying you'd like to help us. We are lucky people. We get to travel the world and play music. We are alive. We are blessed with a lot of wonderful people who we get to call friends.

But yeah, our luck ran the fuck out today. Our van got broken into... all our guitars, pedals, cymbals, hardware, and clothing got stolen. I've been on the phone with the SF police department for about an hour itemizing all of the shit that got jacked, and I'm pretty sure they just lost the list (edit: yes, they lost the list.)

Well, we had to see this (unfortunately) coming. Rdio is shutting down and Pandora is buying up what's left. There's still a whole lot of great ideas in Rdio that I hope the two big streaming players (Apple Music and Spotify) learn from and bake into their services. As I talked about on Twitter a few nights ago, Apple Music in particular would be wise to go hire some of their designers.
"We are proud to have created an innovative and critically acclaimed global music streaming service," Rdio said in an emailed statement. "Given the state of the streaming marketplace, we have reached an agreement with Pandora –- a leader in music streaming that shares our passion for delivering the best...

The Guardian speaks with The 1975 about their upcoming album.
That’s the thing with Healy. He says absolutely anything, sometimes contradicting himself from sentence to sentence. He makes up words – he keeps saying “immersiated” when he means immersed – and he’s grandly, fabulously pretentious. He must be a horror to handle – afterwards, his manager wants to know exactly what has been said about his love life, an inquiry he waves away breezily; his publicist wonders if she should stop him talking for so long – but, goodness, he’s smashing company for a writer. He’s a pop star, in all his sincere, ridiculous, insecure glory.

We've heard from Ed of Cassino with some news on the band's current progress.
We have started the mixing process for the new album. The first half (6 songs) will be out around Christmas time via iTunes and will be available for purchase as we head back into the studio to finish recording the 2nd half of the album at which point we will be doing a vinyl pressing of the full length album. You can expect somewhat of a departure from the Kingprince album in terms of dynamics as some of these new songs have a more straight forward approach. We recorded way more electric guitars and drums this time as well. Needless to say, we really like how these songs have come together and are excited...

Foo Fighters have canceled the rest of their tour.
It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour. In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can't continue right now. There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.
