Foreverly For Real! Over 50 Years Later

Billie_Joe_Norah_Foreverly

Foreverly, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Norah Jones’ full album cover of Songs Our Daddy Taught Us by The Everly Brothers is as daring now as the album was during its original release.  At the time of the original release in 1958, Elvis, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis ruled the rockin’ world and were […]

the-beatles

Hey there ya turkey! Ready for family time, food, football and booze tomorrow? I know I am! This weeks Wasted Wednesday will feature a cornucopia of recent music news and gossip I found interesting because honestly, no one is causing too much of a ruckus this week! First off I would like to give a […]

Hopsin’s Knock Madness Album Review

It’s finally here. Hopsin’s third album, Knock Madness, was OFFICIALLY released yesterday (it leaked on Monday). It took three years and a breakup with his girlfriend to push Marcus to do it—but that’s still better than Dr. Dre, whose Detox album has been notoriously overdue for a decade. Knock Madness feels like it’s suffering from a […]

American Music Awards 2013

From crying cats on jumbo screens to a little crossover rock from a former boy band front man, the American Music Awards for 2013 did not disappoint! The award show this year was a must see with performances by Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and a welcoming throwback jam from TLC with Lil’ […]

Bound 3: The James Franco and Seth Rogen Love Story

This. Is. Awesome. Comedic actors James Franco and Seth Rogen decided to make their own version of Kanye West’s new music video, Bound 2. The title? Bound 3. The hysterical parody matches Kanye’s absurd video shot for shot. Literally. Franco’s impersonation of Kanye might just be his best acting performance yet. And of course, who […]

The 20th Anniversary of Doggystyle

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Doggystyle—not the sex position but the debut album of the rap king once known as Snoop Dogg. Hip-hop had never heard anything like Calvin Broadus, Jr. before. His calm voice and laidback flow was like a breath of fresh air—and it was perfect for the “G Funk” sound orchestrated […]

Kanye is ‘Bound 2’ Kim Kardashian in New Music Video

Have you heard? Kim Kardashian just released another sex tape–only this time, it’s a bit more softcore and features Kanye West instead of Ray J. The new single off Kanye’s Yeezus, Bound 2, features the megastar rapper with his megastar girlfriend/baby mama, Kim Kardashian. The two ride a motorcycle (though it’s obviously not moving) across […]

Daft Punk: 2014 Ultra Music Fest Headliner?

Over ten years ago I used to hang out with a friend in rural Missouri. She lived on a farm with horses, fields and all things Midwest. This friend wasn’t your typical preteen girl that thrived on Spice Girls, *NSYNC and Backstreet Boy jams, instead she introduced to me this amazing band called Daft Punk. […]

Let’s Dance to Lou Reed!

Lou Reed died a little over a week ago at 71 and rock and roll truly lost one of its great souls.  When I heard the news, I was immediately reminded of my college days on Fairfield Beach, Connecticut driving around on a cool fall day with the windows down to Transformer, which I had […]
