Following on the heels of their highly publicized Twitter feud, Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West are set to either reconcile or take the feud to another level face-to-face on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Be sure to tune in, as it seems very unlikely that we won't get at least a few classic Kanyeisms out of this appearance.

So it sure looks like Jon Simmons of Balance and Composure will be a guest vocalist on the next Say Anything record.

Save The Day tweeted out that the band just played Can't Slow Down (a record that just turned 15 years old) from front to back for the first time. Could they have just been doing it for fun or is this something that might pop up in a future show? Would you be stoked if the band busted out these stone-cold classics on tour? I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

AJ from The Dangerous Summer took to Twitter to call out "fake" bands using auto-tune and co-writers yesterday. And while hovering around the topic, this is my plea to celebrities to use a Tweetlonger service or get a blog.

Both Fireworks and Transit members have tweeted pretty damning statements about the Empire venue in Springfield, VA. From what we've been able to piece together, it looks like the promoter used hateful speech -- and then shit hit the fan. We've reached out to try and find out exactly what happened.

Update: A statement about everything that happened, from Floyd James, can be found here.

Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.

For Today's Mike Reynolds sent out a series of tweets claiming there is no such thing as a gay Christian. You keep on preaching all about that love and respect, Mike.

Update: Futhermore, Stick To Your Guns drummer George Schmitz has stated that the band will never tour with For Today ever again. You might recall Stick To Your Guns supporting For Today on the band's "Fight The Silence" headliner in 2012. - JD

Update #2: For Today has made a brief statement via their Facebook page.

Twitter (and AP.net) user ivogoossens is attempting to build a book of "punk rock wisdom" quotes and would like your help putting it together. Basically, he'd like your favorite song lyrics/quotes that contain "wisdom" from any band that is kind of related to this scene. From AFI to Fall Out Boy, to Misfits, Ramones, Social Distortion, All Time Low, Yellowcard. So, if you've got one - tweet at him!
