The Ally Coalition was founded by the members of fun. and designer Rachel Antonoff to take action for LGBTQ equality. California pop punkers Heart to Heart have teamed up with the organization to create a public service announcement. Head to the replies to view the video. This is an issue close to the band, as drummer Stuart Stock publicly came out last year. Heart to Heart also put out a killer self-titled album in October, which is still streaming on their AP.net profile.
Looks like fun.'s Grammynominations make them the first ever "rock band" to score nods in the top four categories: “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” and “Best New Artist.” Hit the replies for the full press release. Congrats to them!

It's that time of year again. The one day in the entire year where MTV plays music videos during primetime hours (well snippets at least). For a channel that only shows full length music videos in the wee hours of the night, I find it hilarious that this awards show is still a thing. Anyways, some of the artists we cover have a prominent role in tonight's spectacle. This year's breakout band fun. is nominated for a handful of awards, including "Best New Artist" where they'll be against Frank Ocean and Joe DeAndrea's favorite artists One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen. Ocean will also be performing live, as will be Green Day and Taylor Swift, who will be slut-shaming someone. In...
Neilsen SoundScan has reported its mid-year sales numbers, and Adele's 21 is the only album so far to have sold over 1 million units (she sold 3.69 million copies so far). This is the first time the industry has only had one album sell at least 1 million records mid-way through the year in SoundScan's 21 years of tracking data.

Oddly enough, Lionel Richie's Tuskegee takes the No. 2 overall spot (912K), One Direction is at No. 3 (899K), Whitney...
