Buzzfeed have sat down to talk with Fall Out Boy about life on tour.
I think at some point, everything about it’s the art and the expectation becomes — you know people expect a certain thing all time, and you’ve gotta sorta challenge that as an artist. But it’s not like, Now there will never be a long song title. When someone becomes more a fan of the song titles than the songs, it’s a problem.

Serious question: How did this article get printed in The Atlantic? Of all the Blink-182 think pieces that came out over the last few days (Grantland's is pretty good), this one takes the cake as the strangest.
The truly gutting thing about the situation is that—say it aint so—we might be witnessing the break-up of one of the greatest gay love stories in American culture. Okay, kidding. Tom Delonge, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker are not, as far as the public knows, gay. All of them have been married to women. But there have definitely been times when they pretended to be something other than strictly heterosexual.

Erin Tate has left Minus The Bear due to creative differences.
It is with heavy hearts that we regret to inform you that due to personal and creative differences Minus the Bear and Erin Tate have decided to part ways.

Erin is one of those rare talents and we consider ourselves lucky to have been able to share the past 14 years with him since this band first started. His creativity, talent, and drive undoubtedly helped get Minus the Bear to where we are today. We wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.

The band will continue touring and we are currently working on the follow up to Infinity Overhead. 2015 is going to be an exciting year and we look forward to...

Eamonn Forde, writing for the Guardian, looks at why Taylor Swift trademarked a bunch of her lyrics.
“What she is trying to do is to protect individual phrases within her lyrics where those lyrics have become catchphrases,” explains Alexander Ross, a partner at law firm Wiggin who specialises in music. “Once you have a trademarked phrase you have the right to stop someone else using it on things like merchandising.”

It's been twenty years of butt jokes and punk rock for the Dallas band, Bowling for Soup, and in honor of such a momentous benchmark the band is releasing a best-of compilation, Songs that People Actually Liked: Volume 1 (1994-2003). The album is out this week and is kind of amazing. Jaret Reddick, singer and guitarist for the band, took some time to answer a few questions about Bowling for Soup's rise to punk rock-dom. Check out the interview here.
I have waves of times where I wonder what we will do next. but every time we have any sort of break, my mind goes crazy with ideas for our next move. I used to always say, “I can’t imagine being 40 and playing songs about farting and high...

Empire! Empire! had a truck crash into their house.
A giant pick-up truck barreling through your house and car at a very high speed does a lot of damage and complicates life to a ridiculous point. Since then, we have been on roller coaster after roller coaster, trying to get things back in order and also seeing if it was going to even be a possibility to go out on tour. Setting house stuff aside- there is now no longer a gaping hole and our house is now not being supported by a large, Chevy truck, but there are still many things to fix- we still have to deal with issues with our van. The insurance company won't let us move it- let alone use it for tour, and things aren't moving fast...

Mike Kinsella had his guitars stolen.
A likely scenario, he thinks, is this: The same person or persons who stole the garage door opener from his street-parked car early last week walked down the alley behind his home, clicked said opener until it worked and made off with the axes: a Fender American Telecaster 72′ Custom Classic Player series and Fender American Tele-Sonic.
