Hosts & Shows
Jack White went after the Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone magazine in a recording that’s surfaced from a recent show he played at Fenway Park in Boston. Jack really lays into Rolling Stone which shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering some of the things they’ve written about him in the past. He also takes a shot at Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, basically claiming the band has a third guitar player to cover up mistakes.
The Foo Fighters fired back today via their Twitter
You ever check a location on Google Maps… then hit “street view” and all of a sudden you see your friend, neighbor or uncle Bob taking out the garbage with his face burred like he’s some kind of convict. Then we celebrate and call uncle Bob, “uncle Bob… you’re famous”. Well it turns out, Google street view is not the only place they’ve been tracking you. Google has been tracking your every move though your smartphone, kinda like when Tom Cruise was trying to escape in the Minority Report. This whole thing is a little creepy and really makes you think… do I really go to McDonald’s that often?

Apparently it’s super easy to steal someone’s Debit of Credit PIN code these days and any old hack can do it using these new infrared cameras which look like iPhones. I’ve had my bank account drained twice(which isn’t saying much because I’m broke) but it is the most frustrating and drawn out process ever to actually get that money back.
Here’s how to prevent it from happening to you.
Rewind back to 1992 and the movie Wayne’s World. Bohemian Rhapsody in the “Mirth Mobile”, probably one of the most popular movie scenes of all time!
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 22 years and have no clue what I’m talking about.
That scene made Bohemian Rhapsody, a song released by Queen in 1975 one of the best selling singles of all time after returning to the charts in ’92. Turns out we almost missed out on all of it, “party on”, “shwing”, “a sphincter says what”, all of it almost didn’t happen because of Guns N’ Roses.
Mike Myers actually threatened to quit the “Wayne’s World” movie because the studio didn’t want to use Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, they wanted something from Guns N’ Roses instead. He actually left the set for 3 days before the studio decided to side with him and use Bohemian Rhapsody. Imagine Mike Myers walked away completely… we came that close to missing out on the greatest movie of all time! Damn you Axl Rose!!
The road to ‘Sonic Highways’ is heating up. The Foo Fighters have been dropping little teasers here and there leading up to their Eighth studio album which hits stores November 10th. Not only do we get the NEW Foo Fighters album this fall, we also get an 8-part Rocumentary mini-series which will chronicle the creation of the new album. Sonic Highways premieres on HBO, Oct. 17 and will feature the debut of the first single off the Foo Fighters new album.
Check out the trailer below.
Just heard this gem yesterday, thought I’d share it with you. Warning: May cause Dizziness, Vomiting, Nausea and uncontrollable laughter.
Here are some of the worst covers of all time.
Just how Eric Clapton envisioned it… or something like that.
Putting Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend to shame.
A cover that will make you wish you were home… if of course “home” was as far away from this cover as possible.
This may be one of the worst covers ever… strangely, I still watched the full video all the way to the end.
WAKE UP! MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T COVER SYSTEM!(Serj Tankian voice)
Climbing up on Solsbury Hill, far, far away from this one. Sorry Sarah.
Still not sure what to call this but at least Gene loves it!
And just for good luck… can’t have a “worst cover” conversation without adding the king of cheesy covers.
There are a lot of bad covers out there. What cover would you say is the WORST of all time?
If this show were to actually happen, it would be the #1 show on television. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul can do no wrong! Emmy Award winner and former Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus also stars in this reality TV spoof as a plug for the upcoming 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on August 25.
Have you ever been dragged to a concert you really… reeeeaally didn’t want to go to? I saw Enrique Iglesias a few years ago, post mole removal(Note: this bears no relevance whatsoever to the rest of the story). I grabbed tickets for an ex girlfriend for her birthday. She then had the option of taking anyone in the world to this show… must have been my lucky day, she picked me. If you’ve ever been in this spot, the following is a series of photo’s of guys who feel your pain!
Put the earplugs in, close your eyes and pretend it’s Creedence.
Hey, what’s that on the floor? SPOILER: It’s your tears.
Gonna go out on a limb and guess those binoculars aren’t for watching the band.
And if all else fails, pretend you’re going to the washroom or for food and pull this classic move.
Not entirely sure if this is what Bryan Adams had in mind when he wrote the tune “Kids Wanna Rock” for his 1984 album ‘Reckless’, nonetheless your little guy or girl can now rock out to some of your favourite music… sorta.
Soundgarden is the latest band featured on a lullaby compilation which in the past has included Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, AC/DC and Zeppelin. The compilation album, done by “Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star” will include Soundgarden classics, Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, Outshined, The Day I Tried To Live and Rusty Cage. Now you can “ROCK” your baby to sleep… genius!
