Hear Guns N Roses' Sweet Child O Mine Covered As A 1920s-Era New Orleans Jazz Number

The main problem with Guns N Roses over the last two decades is that Axl is a douche, and they do nothing relevant. For a band with a frontman who is still, despite his asshole tendencies, one of the best rock vocalists in history, it’s sad that they can’t even maintain the tenuous relevance of a band like Kiss. The only thing left to do is take some of rock’s greatest songs, by one of the greatest bands, and make it new again.

De La Soul Making Entire Catalog Free For Download

As a young lad I was introduced to the world of hip-hop via groups like Run D.M.C., Public Enemy, and De La Soul.

Danish Zoo Euthanizes Giraffe, Performs Autopsy For School Children

The Copenhagen Zoo killed one of its giraffes, a “surplus” as they called the creature, and fed it to the lions.
