Zac Lomas, writing for PunkOut, looks at pop-punk's heteronormativity:
The pop-punk scene needs to make a stand and support pop-punk bands that openly identify as LGBTQ and whose songs give the LGBTQ community something to identify with. The LGBTQ community needs to hear Jordan Black from Like Pacific scream about his failed relationships, they need to hear Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace sing about the harsh realities of being Trans in America, and they need their own Soupy.

After performing it live several months before 2013's Yeezus, a Kanye West song titled "Awesome" has found it's way onto the internet. You can stream it at Noisey, but there's no word if it will appear on his forthcoming So Help Me God.

Quick question before we begin. How much time do you have? Two, three days? That might be enough time for me to talk about how much I love All Get Out, but no promises. Follow-Up question: Is it ok if we make this whole thing about me? No? Fine. So this band, who have not released new music since they recorded my favorite album of all time (personal revelation!) The Season, in 2011, are releasing an EP called Movement on April 14th via Bad Timing Records and Favorite Gentlemen Recordings, and it'll slay you. Forget about the passage of time, because with Movement, and especially the song we're premiering, "Balance," it's all just the continuation of Nathan Hussey's search for calm in a...

Meredith Graves has interviewed her dad all about Radiohead.
I have almost nothing to say on the subject of Radiohead. I barely know anything about their music, because I’ve never liked it. It’s not a value judgment on their personhood or anything — it’s just not for me. The only person in my immediate life who likes Radiohead is my dad, who also happens to be pretty much my best friend in the world. He’s super smart– he’s a journalist and a tech wizard, and he’s also a huge music nerd. He also, historically, doesn’t take shit from me, so I figured I would ask him to explain why Radiohead is good, rather than sit here and write about why I don’t like them.

As I recently exclusively revealed on this here web portal, all facts and evidence point to the conclusion that Philadelphia rock band The Weaks is The Greatest Rock Band On Earth™. In the replies, we're streaming a song by The Weaks, which is called "Still Courting." It's one of the songs that sounds like a mix between grungy Nirvana stuff and poppy Weezer stuff underlined by inherent emo-ism; there are many such songs on the band's new full-length, Bad Year, which drops on April 7 via Lame-O Records and can be pre-ordered now (physical / digital). So, if you think you would enjoy The Greatest Rock Band On Earth™, feel free to check them out in the replies.

A jury has awarded $7.3 million to Marvin Gaye's family after finding that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke copied a Marvin Gaye song to create "Blurred Lines."
The eight-person panel reached the decision Tuesday after hearing nearly a week of testimony about similarities between "Blurred Lines" - the biggest hit of 2013 - and Gaye's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up." Gaye's children sued Thicke and Williams, saying their song infringed the copyright of their father's song.

Will Salazar's wife, Shauna, has posted an update on the frontman from Fenix TX's condition. Donations are still welcome.
Two weeks ago today, my husband got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, he fainted, fell backwards, hitting the back of his head on the tile floor. When he came to, he didn't know where he was, what had happened, what he had done that day. It was terrifying. The first few days in the hospital he couldn't walk, couldn't see, the left side of his body was numb. Every day was a different diagnosis. At first it was a concussion. Then it was syncope. Then it was a stroke. Then it was syncope, which led to a concussion, which led to a mid-brain posterior...
