Watch: Green Day – “Cigarettes and Valentines”

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011



Green Day’s forthcoming live album is called Awesome as Fuck and I would argue that this song help’s the title’s case.

The song “Cigarettes and Valentines,” which was supposed to be the title track of the album that was going to be released instead of American Idiot, can now be watched up top. The song may be standard three-chord fare, like most of their songs, but it’s catchy and will stay in your head all… Read More

Monday, February 21st, 2011



This is my very first album review and I figured it should be about Radiohead’s new album, The King Of Limbs. I’m a huge Radiohead fan and consider them to be the best band on the planet but this review is not all high praise. I try my best to point out positives and negatives about the album and, while I don’t give it a final score, I will say that while the… Read More

After seeing Rammstein perform at Madison Square Garden in NYC for the first time in 2010, I started hoping that the band would play more shows in the U.S. Looks like the band heard my prayers.

Behold, rockers, the Germans are coming to take over your town and they will succeed. For the first time in 10 years, Rammstein will tour… Read More
