Paper Mag recently interviewed Tom DeLonge about UFOs, government coverups, and other things of that nature.
I think it's the biggest story of mankind. You take Christianity: a guy named Jesus came and died on the cross for everybody's sins. That's not as big of a story as what types of intelligences are living across the universe. I mean, the deep space project by Hubble, which is taking our most exotic telescope that we've ever made at the time, and focusing on the blackest part of space for 11 days straight. Literally a grain of sand, if you held it out at arm's length, is where the focus of this orbiting telescope is at. For 11 days. And it came back with a one-inch by one-inch...

The band Simple Mind is recording a "reimagined" version of Brand New's The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. Their cover of "Limousine" can be found in the replies, and some info on why they're doing this is up at this interview.
In December of 2013, I caught Brand New for one of their discography shows, as well as their Bell House show in Brooklyn. That show went down in their fanbases’ eyes as one of the best Brand New shows of all time. It was an incredible experience for me as well and I realized that this band was pretty much in my musical DNA. I wanted to delve into their songs and put myself into them, because I felt like they were all a part of me. I also just love the Brand...

Bayside has premiered its new lyric video for "Dancing Like An Idiot," which can be viewed in the replies (via Billboard).
"These bands are just writing giant curses on t-shirts and selling it to a kid cause they know the kid is stupid enough to buy it," Raneri says. "You're telling them it's cool to buy a t-shirt to piss their parents off. There's nothing cool about that -- that's mall rebellion. That's not real rebellion. I grew up liking The Smiths, liking Nirvana… I fucking hated Guns N' Roses. It was bullshit, misogynistic, it was fake rebellion -- nothing is more corporate and commercialized."

So what Warped bands is he taking shots at? He's content to let the video do the...

Kanye West did an interview with Style discussing his new Adidas line.
Adidas is the perfect place to be. If someone was to say, “Hey, do you want to go to a high-end house now?” I’d absolutely say no. I’m not trying to [sound] presumptuous, I’m just saying that if in my wildest dreams I was presented with the opportunity, I would absolutely say no at this point. Because I’m only concerned with making beautiful products available to as many people as possible … The least I could do is spend my time trying to give other people a piece of the so-called good life. Everyone should have the good life. It’s like [Amancio] Ortega [founder of Zara] and H&M group. Before that happened, you could...

Shea Serrano speculates on Grantland about what it would be like if Kanye West had never interrupted Taylor Swift.
For starters, if he doesn’t interrupt her, then he never gets shredded into a million pieces in the news. And if he never gets shredded into a million pieces in the news, then he never makes My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which was his emotional response to the blowback, and that is truly devastating, because MBDTF is a (very nearly) perfect album. If there’s no MBDTF, then that means we never get RZA drunk-mumble-shouting, “Fuckhhn ruhdihhkulus” on “So Appalled,” and oh no, but also we never get Pusha T admitting to cheating on a girl and telling her, “All right, all...

Conor Oberst appears on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast this week. He discusses Bright Eyes, the rape accusations from last year, and a variety of other topics.
I want to put it in perspective because I think about all the many African-American men who are in prisons right now for crimes they didn't commit, and for actual victims of sexual assault that it has done the greatest disservice to," he said. "They say one out of four women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime. That's staggering and fucking horrible

first off, this is none of your business, but i have no specific demands in my dressing room. i know i could ask for lots of things but i actually dont ask for ANYTHING. i take with me what i need, and that aint much. anything on the rider is for the band and the crew. this "guacamole recipe" is my hilarious tour managers inside joke with the local promoters, it’s his recipe, not mine. it’s just something to break up the boredom, seeing who can make it best.

Tony Thaxton, formerly of Motion City Soundtrack, has written up a blog about how he feels now about having left the band.
Before the show, we had decided that I would join them onstage for the last song of the night, “My Favorite Accident”. Which is probably the song that I have played the most in my life. I’m not sure we ever DIDN’T play that song. Plus we sound checked with it often. I should be sick of it. But it felt like the right song. When the time came, I was actually pretty excited to go and do it. It wasn’t announced, no one in the audience knew I was going to play. I won’t lie, it was an ego boost. The reaction when I came out felt really nice. I was truly touched....
