Remember that time people thought Steven Spielberg killed a real dinosaur? Happy Friday everyone.

Pup, much like Brand New, are also a fan of merch that depicts pissing on wires. While quite funny, as friend of the site Rob Dobi points out, all the images are from this public-domain collection.

Since it's officially Monday on the east coast, I can't think of a better way to start the week. We're all products of the social media age, so we know what it's like to be bombarded with concert invites, band spam and unrealistic expectations from local bands. Jump to the replies to watch a hilarious video that pretty much sums up most of our lives working in the music industy.

Dr. David Glowacki, a leading US scientist and research fellow at the Royal Society in London, was booted from the Bristol Old Vic after he tried to crowdsurf during Handel's "Messiah."
Dr Glowacki has attacked the decision to force him to leave the concert by saying: ‘Classical music, trying to seem cool and less stuffy, reeks of some sort of fossilised art form undergoing a midlife crisis.’

Baseball is a proud sport, one with almost unlimited tradition and the sport that, perhaps, is most dear to America's heart. 50 Cent's ceremonial first pitch at last night's New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game was neither proud nor traditional, but the Internet will hold it dear to its heart for many moons to come. Put blankly, you couldn't throw a baseball this poorly if you tried your hardest. It's in the replies, of course, where these sorts of things belong.

The most generic, cheesiest pop-punk song ever has been written ... and shockingly it's not by Real Friends! Instead, it's by Sunrise Skater Kids, the joke band from Jarrod Alonge. Hit the replies to hear "Pop Punk Pizza Party."

Ok, not really - but the two did have some fun on twitter yesterday, with Regis poking fun at Raekwon's nickname of "the Chef" with #DownWithTheWu. Then Rae asked "Uncle Regis" for a turkey burger. I like to imagine a world where these two have the highest rated morning talk show in the country.

Avril Lavigne's fans in Brazil paid the equivalent of about $360 USD to take pictures with the singer at arm's length. They were apparently explicitly instructed to not touch Avril. Check out the results in the replies, because man oh man are they hilariously, delightfully awkward.

Following Drake's "incident" last week the Toronto Raptors distributed 1,200 free OVO/Drake-branded lint rollers during game five of their playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets last night. Life has begun to parody itself and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Last night during the NBA playoff game between the Raptors and the Nets, Drake was spotted by TV cameras lint rolling his pants while sitting courtside.

What do the Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," the Baha Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" and Nickelback's "Rockstar" all have in common? They are all music songs and they are all on this page. Please, let us discuss in the replies.

Ok, not really ... but Drake did appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a special segment of "I Witness News." He dons a beard and wig before taking to the street to talk to people about, you guessed it, Drake. He accuses himself of peeing in Baby Gap and refusing to acknowledge white sports players at the Espys, which he's hosting later this year. Full video is in the replies.

To complete Beyoncé's aggressive cultural takeover, there is now a soundboard based on her self-titled album from last year. It's flawless.

Jimmy Kimmel sent a crew to Coachella and interviewed concert goers. The set up was the interviewer fabricating band names and see how the people would react. Watch the hilarity in the replies.

Since this has been submitted by a ton of you, I thought I'd post it. Someone decided to mash-up Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hole" with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." The end result is "Call Me a Hole," which you can stream in the replies.

This has absolutely nothing to do with music (but hey, neither does Kesha and we post about her) -- but it's my site and I feel like sharing the elevator prank video that would make me shit my pants and probably punch a child in makeup. It's in the replies.

Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas recently confessed that he can't sing very well and he relies on autotune.
From the ArticleThe rapper, writer and producer added: “I like staying in the studio. The computer allows me to make music, sing it myself, and not wait around for a singer to come along and sing the songs. “The computer allows me to execute a lot of my ideas at the speed that I think them so that’s why I lean to the autotune.”

Okay, at the risk of this not being news ... it's making the rounds on the Internet, so we have to share. Head to the replies to check out an old TV advertisement from the '90s for a compilation CD (or cassette!!!) simply titled PUNK. It features, of course, bands like Men At Work, INXS, Huey Lewis and The News, The Knack, Romantics, and Toni Basil ... of course. This is a must-watch.

An optometrist is warning that "swooping haircuts" may just end up leading to eye problems.
From The ArticleMr Hogan said a curtain of hair over one eye could actually act like an eyepatch, limiting the eye's access to both sunlight and sensory stimulation. He said recent research had shown a lack of direct sunlight resulted in short sightedness.

Head to the replies to watch Mixtapes demoing a song called "Axl Rose" for their 2012 full-length. The record will be titled Life Of A Jughead.

A pair of music critics in Winnipeg have written a letter to the commissioner of the National Hockey League. The subject? They don't want Nickelback to play at the first Winnipeg Jets game in 15 years.

Angelina from The Jersey Shore has released a rap song. Luckily, you can hear Mike The Situation's rap on the very same page. Combined they have the musical talent of a below-average third grader.
