Remembering Estelle Bennett Of The Ronettes

Having reached the end of her journey this past Wednesday February 11th, let us take a moment to thank Estelle Bennett for taking part in a group that significantly influenced modern pop-music and fashion. At the age of 67, she's gone all too soon, but her legacy will surely live on.

Rant: Stop Defending Chris Brown

Following Chris Brown's assault on Rihanna, the immediate question on the media's mind was, "How is he going to bounce back?" Rumors began flying to justify that this was somehow Rihanna's fault, with people going as far as saying, "She had it coming to her." Are you fucking kidding me?

The Setty Smooth Challenge: Are You Smooth Enough?

Here’s the deal: Setty Smooth is, as far as I have seen, the smoothest hip-hop artist, and probably the smoothest man, in the entire world. I don’t mean pretentious, Hollywood smooth -- I mean subliminally, superhumanly smooth. Like Casanova, or Timberlake

51st Grammy Award Winners

Lacking the credibility, pomp and circumstance of the Oscar’s or even the Emmy’s, the Grammy Awards are the most meaningful in a long list of meaningless music award shows. The winners are rarely the best or even most culturally relevant, but there’s something to be said for the absolute chaos

Pearl Jam Hits Up The Studio

Pearl Jam is a lot like AC/DC. They’re revered by some, enjoyed by most, and vehemently disliked by others. At this point in their career, they’ve put out enough material in roughly the same basic format (heavy guitar/ inaudible, cryptic lyrics) that you probably know already whether you’ll purchase this compact disc

CD Review: The BPA's I Think We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

The liner notes of I Think We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat may attempt to sell the listener a cheap mythology of “a loose-limbed jamming unit” that recorded from the 1970s to the mid-nineties, but there’s no ignoring what this really is—Norman Cook’s own version of Timbaland’s Shock Value

Super Bowl Half Time: Bruce Springsteen Always Rocks, Never Ages

Just as we calmed down about’s Pepsi-supported destruction of Bob Dylan’s legacy, Bruce Springsteen stormed into our living rooms to shout about dropping chicken fingers and guacamole. All was forgiven when he launched into “10th Avenue Freeze Out”, much to the delight of the audience

Super Bowl: How Will Bruce Do?

We’re less than a week away from the Super Bowl. Can you feel the excitement, the enthusiasm, the wind howling from millions of Terrible Towels menacingly flying in unison? I’m a Bears fan; so, no, no I cannot. But I’ll still watch. It is, after all, the foremost television event of the year. Hilarious commercials, Bruce Springsteen, and Kurt Warner’s aging body

Every Song is About Heroin

You won’t convince me that the only heroin songs out there are the obvious ones. It’s almost guaranteed that somewhere, some good-guy songwriter is kicking back, having pulled off such a well-disguised smack anthem that no one even noticed it. My mission is to uncover some of these sneaky writers (music blog)

Jazz Hands For Michael Jackson

There's some wretched stuff going down on this little planet we call Earth, and I can't help but feel like we're all running around like a bunch of crazed Princess Leias. "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope," we utter in unison. But the identity of our metaphoric Obi Wan isn't necessarily clear. Is it Barack Obama? Is it ourselves?

Lady GaGa Bewitches America

Lady GaGa is unstoppable right now, and it's unclear what this means for the state of the world. "Just Dance" is the number one song in the country yet again, and while we sleep peacefully knowing that it'll soon be dethroned, the dastardly pop sorceress has another hit brewing in her cauldron

New Britney Single Not A Hit With Parents

In a world where it's okay to talk about "supermanning hoes", when did a little wordplay hurt anyone? If a cheeto-loving mother of two wants to sing a gender-normative anthem about her sex appeal, who is going to stop her? The answer: your mom

Don't Hate On Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy is a scapegoat. They’re the unfortunate subjects of more misdirected anger than perhaps any other band in recent memory, and honestly, they don’t deserve that. They don’t deserve to be almost universally chastised by wannabe alpha males who falsely assume they’re radio friendly, formulaic brand of music is the one roadblock to classic rock’s triumphant return

Diddy To Produce Phoenix Rap Album

Sometimes an idea will look bad on paper and magically come together, surprisingly everyone with its success outside of those who envisioned the bizarre notion. I’m really not sure this is one of those ideas. In fact, a Joaquin Phoenix rap album produced by P Diddy is beyond just a normal bad idea. It’s a terrible idea

Ryan Adams Quitting Music?

When did the media become a story? Jesus Christ. I just read an article about Ryan Adams possibly quitting the music industry citing a laundry list of gripes and ailments, but when I went to read the blog entry in question, it was replaced with a snippy, passive aggressive entry about the media once again taking his words out of context

Rock Hall Plays Favorites

The 2009 Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame inductees have been announced, and, well, the right people actually seem to have gotten in---unlike the Baseball Hall Of Fame, who once again denied Andre ‘The Hawk’ Dawson. Heavy metal mainstays Metallica made the cut along with rap trio Run DMC and virtuoso guitarist Jeff Beck. Guitarist Bobby Womack and Little Anthony & The Imperials rounded out the star-studded class of ‘09

Examining The 'N Sync Reunion

You've heard the news already: Lance Bass would be "excited" about an 'N Sync reunion. Now, there's no way in hell that this is happening in the next couple of years... but what if it did? Even if Justin Timberlake is too busy banging his hot Hollywood girlfriend and being totally famous, no time is better than now. After all, the boys don't want to wait until they're as washed up as New Kids On The Block

Dupri And Island Split

Janet Jackson boyfriend Jermaine Dupri has reportedly stepped down as president of Island Records Urban Music division. The thirty-six year old producer and rapper took the post less than two years ago, initiating a cross promotional with Tag Body Spray but was largely unsuccessful in discovering or promoting many new artists

Beastie Boys Rock For Barack

No more Bush? Let’s party it up in euphoric glee. That seems to be the attitude of numerous rock stars, and rap pioneers the Beastie Boys are no different. The trio have agreed to join Sheryl Crow for a Washington DC shindig later this month entitled Hey, America Feels Kinda Cool Again. Go ahead and bring Malia and Sasha. The gig is all ages

Clarkson Picks A Name For New Album

American Idol champion Kelly Clarkson is putting the finishing touches on her fourth album. The songstress’ second album Breakaway moved some twelve million odd units thanks to a catchy fusion of pop, angst, and rock. After a noted public feud with Clive Davis, she wrote the songs herself on the third CD, and the effort didn’t fare nearly as well
