• Temple of the Dog Reunion Bridge School Benefit Video Hunger Strike

    Temple of the Dog Reunites for Stripped-Down 'Hunger Strike' at Bridge School Benefit

    Over the course of the two-plus decades since they first collaborated as Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell have on rare occasions found the time to get back together and revisit some of the material from that classic collaboration. This year's iteration of Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit featured appearances from both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam so the time seemed right for this to happen again. Lo and behold, during the latter band's set, Chris Cornell strolled onstage for a stripped down rendition of the Temple of the Dog classic "Hunger Strike." Consequence of Sound points out that it was only their fourth performance together since 1991 and their first since Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary in 2012. You can catch fan-shot footage of the moment above.

  • Iggy Azalea Snl Black Widow Fancy Rita Ora Mø

    Watch Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' 'Saturday Night Live' Performance

    Less than a month before the release of the deluxe reissue of her 2014 album The New Classic, Iggy Azalea swung through 30 Rockefeller Center to guest on this week's episode of Saturday Night Live. Rather than a straight run through of her inescapable hit "Fancy" Azalea opted to perform it as a medley with "Black Widow" for which her collaborator Rita Ora was on hand. Fog machines and chain link fences made the performance more ornate than your typical SNL appearance, but her second trip to the stage was even better, performing her recent single "Beg For It" with Danish pop star MØ in tow. You can catch the first performance above, and the second below, alongside a skit in which Azalea and host Jim Carrey take part in an office costume party. Reclassified, Azalea's reissue, will come to stores on November 24.

  • Drake 6 God How Bout Now Heat of the Moment Stream

    Drake Preempts Hackers by Dropping Three Unreleased Tracks

    Though his next full-length album Views From the 6 remains looming in the distance without a release date, Drake took to Soundcloud on Saturday night to provide a bit of an appetizer. After teasing that fans should "keep an eye on ovosound.com" he dropped three new tracks "6 God," "How Bout Now," and "Heat of the Moment" out of nowhere. However, a follow up tweet suggests that Drizzy may have turned these songs out with a purpose. He says that it's not an EP, but that it was "just 3 songs that [he] knew some hackers had."Rather than let these songs slip out through unofficial channels, he decided to preempt it and release another strong set of inwardly focused but outwardly boisterous rap tracks.

    TV's long-running live music institution Austin City Limits continued its 40th season Saturday night with a performance from Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer's new band Tweedy.

Including deeper cuts like Uncle Tupelo's "Give Back the Key to My Heart" and Wilco favorites like "Jesus, Etc.," "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," and "California Stars," the two Tweedys (along with members of Lucius) managed to offer up something pretty special.

  • Jack Bruce Dead 71 Cream Bassist

    Jack Bruce, Former Cream Bassist, Has Died at 71

    Jack Bruce, singer/bassist for Cream, has died today at the age of 71 according to a Facebook post from his family. The Scotland Herald reports that Bruce passed away of liver disease, and Bruce's publicist confirmed to Rolling Stone that the legendary bassist "died today at his home in Suffolk surrounded by his family."While part of Cream, alongside Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker, Bruce helped define the archetype of the rock 'n' roll power trio. Over the course of four albums in three years, the band churned out a whole host of gritty, stripped-down, blues-indebted rock tracks that held fast to the grimy guitar, bass, and drums formula, before Bruce eventually launched out on a solo career of his own.

  • Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Bad Brains Ian Mackaye Interview Video

    Dave Grohl Salutes His D.C. Roots in 'Sonic Highways' Interview With Bad Brains, Ian Mackaye

    Friday night's episode of Foo Fighters' new HBO show Sonic Highways found Dave Grohl returning to a place very near and dear to his heart, Washington, D.C. He's already paid homage to the nation's capital this year by staging a surprise show at the 9:30 Club in tribute of the famed go-go band Trouble Funk, but he offered up an hour long love-letter to the big city that he called his own while growing up in suburban Virginia. The episode culminated in the completion of "The Feast and the Famine," the second single from the band's eighth studio album, but along the way Grohl managed to chat with a whole host of D.C. legends. Dischord Records boss/hardcore frontman extraordinare Ian Mackaye and D.C. punk icons Bad Brains made an appearance to talk about the rise of D.C. hardcore during Grohl's formative years, and this morning HBO has offered up an extended cut of those two conversations.

  • Damon Albarn Gorillaz Good Bad Queen 2016 Return Interview

    Damon Albarn Hints at New Gorillaz Album in 2016

    While prepping for the Australian leg of his tour in support of his recent solo album Everyday Robots, Damon Albarn offered the Sydney Morning Herald some pretty tantalizing news about what he has planned next. In addition to the previously announced "mainstream musical for families," Albarn says his next proper record will come courtesy his wildly popular animated band Gorillaz.Albarn says he is currently working on "reactivating" the band, but that the album could see a 2016 release. It'd be his fifth album under that name overall and the first since 2011's iPad constructed album The Fall.In other exciting Albarn news, he also says he has another record "fully written" for the Good, the Bad, and the Queen, his collaboration with The Clash's Paul Simonin, drummer Tony allen, and The Verve's Simon Tong.

  • Drake Airball Kentucky Wildcats Warm up Basketball Video

    Drake Didn't Look So Great While Warming Up With Kentucky's Basketball Team

    Drake's love of both basketball and lint rollers is already well-documented, but Friday night at the University of Kentucky's Big Blue Madness he reaffirmed his affection for both. At the annual preseason intra-squad scrimmage, as Complex points out, Mr. Nothing Was the Same showed up to pay homage to his favorite college basketball team by dressing up in full Kentucky sweats and warming up with the team. Let's just say he appears to be significantly better at rapping, acting, and conceptualizing proprietary lint-collecting devices than he is at hitting the net. After one desperate-looking airball he comes up with a bit more of a respectable attempt, still hitting the rim, but neither of those shots compares to his turn at the player introductions, during which he lint-rolled like few have lint-rolled before. Be sure to check out footage of his warmup above and the introduction below.
