Great Debate: Led Zeppelin Vs. The Who

You never knew what you were going to get from Led Zeppelin. How do you go from “Good Times Bad Times” to “Stairway To Heaven” to “Kashmir”? Plus, hard rock with a brain is seemingly hard to come by. VS. ... I'll say The Who, main reason being Townshend basically invented rock and roll songwriting. Most of the Zeppelin canon consists of distorted Delta blues paired with a shrieking British lead singer

Despite Knee Pain, Josh Homme Soldiers On

This Josh Homme fellow is the real deal. Anyone who doesn’t think a guitar player’s knees are all that important, and I’m making too big a deal of this, has never tried to play rock music standing up in front of a crowd. With so many variables in play, constant, throbbing pain in your leg doesn’t help anything; packing it in under the circumstances would be more than understandable. But he refuses.

Great Debate: GNR's 'November Rain' - Worth The Hype?

The song constantly reinvents itself as it goes, never heading in a direction that you can pinpoint. Axl doesn’t even begin crooning until the 1:15 mark, and there are several un-fucking-believable guitar solos by Slash. It's an epic tune, a sort of rock opera. VS. ... Although Axl’s never been the best singer, his delivery has been fine on “Paradise City” or the gentle, albeit boring, ballad “Patience.” But with “November Rain,” just about every piece is perfectly in place besides those grainy vocals

Great Debate: Are The Beatles Overrated?

What we need to acknowledge here is the definition of “overrated”--something that is rated highly beyond what it deserves. Perhaps the Beatles deserve all the credit they got, but is it fair just to ignore all other great bands of the time? VS. ... The music has stood the test of time, outlasting disco, new wave, Britney Spears and just about every other fad you can recall. It’s way beyond the commercial success

Great Debate: Is U2 Worth Paying Insane Money To See Live?

Seeing U2 in concert is the closest thing I’ve had to a religious experience … and I’m an atheist. The second they walk onto the stage, it’s like magic--the ultimate concert high (although the secondhand pot smoke never hurts). VS. ... Few bands have had as much longevity as U2, while its popular output ranks it with only the Rolling Stones atop that category in rock history. That said, there is no way in hell I would pay to see the band live.

Michael Jackson 50-Foot Robot Replica In The Works?

All Michael Jackson news has to be taken with a grain of salt. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about the veracity of the following news item. However, his associates are quoted, so it has to be true. And, truth be told, it sounds pretty great. Jackson is currently in discussions regarding the creation of a 50-foot robotic replica of himself to roam the Las Vegas desert, shooting laser beams

David Lee Roth Snubs Rock Hall Of Fame

Van Halen is one of the biggest rock acts of all time, due in no small part to the larger-than-life voice and presence of singer Diamond David Lee Roth. Van Halen is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 12, but Mr. Roth has concluded that while this is great for his band, it’s just not enough about him to warrant his attendance

Arcade Fire Frontman Blasts Oasis, U2, Stones

In the current issue of NME, Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler spoke out against some of the world's biggest bands. He said, "In the U.K. there's this kind of rock star competition. I don't know if U2 started it, or the Stones or Oasis, but a lot of bands think in terms of: 'I'm going to be the biggest band in the world ... I think that's a total crock of sh-t"

Jim Carrey Creates Top 23 Playlist, Takes Method Acting To An Extreme

How could anybody with an actively beating heart not like Jim Carrey? I don't mean his comedy or his acting but the man himself. He's so full of life and childlike enchantment. Not to mention good PR instincts. Finding yet another way to promote his upcoming thriller 23, the Ace Ventura star made a top 23 playlist and wrote snippets explaining his picks

RANT: What The Heck Happened To The Goo Goo Dolls?

About 13 years ago, the Goo Goo Dolls forgot they were a punk rock band. When the former rockers’ first album, Jed, came out in 1989, it seemed to preview a band who was just assembling the pieces to a rock tour de force. Now, for the better part of a decade, they have found their way into the soundtrack of every teen movie and soap opera. It’s all too apparent that the songs are prepped in the hopes of excessive radio play.

Did Green Day Rip Off Oasis?

Noel Gallagher hates Green Day. He hates the rockers so much, in fact, that he is inventing reasons to deride them. According to Rolling Stone, Gallagher recently said he feels Green Day ripped off Oasis’ monstrous hit single “Wonderwall” for their own gigantic “Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Listen for yourself. Are the songs really that similar?

music
Green Day Sued By A Real American Idiot

A grocery store clerk in Oregon is claiming he wrote Green Day’s global smash hit “American Idiot” nearly fifteen years ago, and has filed a copyright infringement suit against the band. Paul McPike is certainly not the first jackass in American society to try and score a pay day through such means. The title of the song he’s suing over is rather ironic, though, isn’t it?

music
Liam Gallagher Scoffs At Rockers In Rehab

Oasis lead singer and renowned teetotaler Liam Gallagher has taken another potshot in his effort to become the most universally despised rock star of his generation. The victims of his soused wrath this time are former Libertines and current Babyshambles front man Pete Doherty and Keane’s Tom Chaplin. “None of us have ever been in the Priory like these idiots today,” Gallagher said
