Watch: Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Brendan’s Death Song”

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

The newest video from the Red Hot Chili Peppers comes in the form of a New Orleans Jazz funeral for the track, “Brendan’s Death Song”.

RiO!B episode – June 20, 2012

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

On today’s episode of the Rock it Out! Blog, I review the new album from the Smashing Pumpkins, Oceania. I’m happy to say that I’m a fan of this album unlike much of the previous works that Billy Corgan has released in the past. It’s a big rock album where you can hear the whole band getting involved as opposed to Corgan writing and recording the music on his own.

What do you think of this album? Leave a comment or a video response.
