  • We Still Coming Viral Photo 7262 Anthem Video

    'We Still Coming' Wedding Party Crashed a Rap Video

    Chances are you've already come across that "We Still Coming" wedding photo that's been going around for the past couple of weeks, but the story behind it isn't exactly as it seems. The short version of the real story can be seen in 7262's "Anthem" video above.Here's what happened:Though the photo itself is legit, that it has anything to do with the accompanying text message was a complete fabrication, reports F Stoppers. Roger and Kirsten are not the names of the bride and groom pictured. And in fact, it was the wedding guests that crashed the set of a music video, rather than the problematic premise prevously at play, which found an uninvited fella and his "boys" horning in on someone else's day of days.Photographer Adam Sparkes happened upon the group of men pictured above while shooting the bridal party outside the remains of Michigan Central Station.

  • March of the Juggalos Gathering Morgan Freeman Documentary Video

    Morgan Freeman 'Narrates' the 'March of the Juggalos' Nature Mockumentary

    Insane Clown Posse's yearly celebration of intemperance and self-indulgence — yes, the Gathering of the Juggalos — hit Thornville, Ohio, this weekend. That fest functioned as a beacon not only for the performing likes of Gilbert Godfried, Yelawolf, and Cypress Hill, but a host of unwashed pleasure-seekers who can now be legally classified as gang members — an unfair designation that, for better or for worse, does serve to highlight that Juggalos are a tribe unto themselves.This year marks the 15th iteration of the festival and, as Consequence of Sound points out, an enterprising "filmmaker" put together a "documentary" to commemorate the anniversary.

  • Deer Tick Airline Senator Carryon Law

    U.S. Senator Rides for Deer Tick's Right to Carry Guitars Onto Airplanes

    Deer Tick's John McCauley was on his way to Newport Folk Festival last week when he ran into a bit of a road block attempting to board a U.S. Airways flight. As Stereogum points out, the airline apparently wouldn't let the hoarse-voiced Deervana singer bring his guitar onto the flight, despite known regulations that protect musicians from having to check instruments.Just got kicked off a @USAirways flight cuz they wouldn't let me bring my guitar on board. @Newportfolkfest here I come!!... via @Amtrak— Deer Tick (@deertickmusic) July 23, 2014Rather than risk his axe's destruction, McCauley (and wife Vanessa Carlton) took Amtrak to the festival. And now U.S. Senator Jack Reed of Deer Tick's Rhode Island is getting involved.To be fair, U.S. Airways eventually refunded the unused ticket and paid for the train ride, but McCauley's is an all-too-common tale.

  • FKA Twigs Video Girl LP1 Stream

    Hear FKA Twigs' Uneasy Slow Jam 'Video Girl'

    Aside the syrupy lead single "Two Weeks" and its regal video, London R&B auteur FKA twigs (born Tahliah Barnett) hasn't offered much to tease her debut album LP1. Fortunately however, just two weeks before that record's release, another shadowy track called "Video Girl" has made its way to the internet. Bubbling synthesizer weirdness drives Barnett's vocal manipulations and conjures the same sort of uneasy sensuality that made EP2 one of SPIN's Best R&B Albums of 2013. This new song is likely a leak, so it may not stick around forever, but for now listen to a stream below, via Tecoapple.LP1 is due August 12 on Young Turks.

  • Keith Urban Concert Boston Injury Alcohol

    Keith Urban Concert Leaves 22 Hospitalized

    If you thought Avicii shows were the only places where fans go a little overboard with their consumption of, erm, substances, Keith Urban fans are here to disabuse you of those prejudices. From the sounds of it, the American Idol judge's Saturday concert in the Boston suburb of Mansfield, Massachusetts, was just as much of a hedonistic shit show as any EDM concert. Twenty-two fans were hospitalized and 24 others were treated at the show for alcohol-related injuries and illnesses, reports The Boston Herald.In addition, more than 50 attendees were taken into police custody on site, several of whom were eventually processed for alcohol-related arrests.

  • Kanye Coinye West Lawsuit Defeated

    Kanye West Defeats Coinye Cryptocurrency in Lawsuit

    When the creators of the Coinye West were finally unmasked and served with a lawsuit back in March it seemed that the contentious cryptocurrency was on the ropes, and now the legal proceedings have finally drawn to a close, reports NBC News. Documents filed in the case last week brought an official end to Kanye West's lawsuit against South Park-referencing e-coins.Kanye first started battling the creators back in January with a cease-and-desist letter, but it quickly became clear that the men behind the currency had inflammatory goals. Even when faced with legal action, they said they'd only suspend service once 'Ye himself asked them to stop. After months of legal proceedings, however, they've met an anticlimactic end. Kanye filed suit against a handful of named defendants, most of whom lost the suit by default for failing to acknowledge the charges.

  • Karen O Rapt Crush Songs Video

    Karen O Sinks Underwater in 'Rapt' Video

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O has issued a number of solo recordings over the last few years, but on September 9 she'll put out Crush Songs, her first full-length away from her main project, on Julian Casablancas' Cult Records. Today, she's released the first taste of that album in the form of a waterlogged visual for a track called "Rapt."Built around creaky double-tracked vocals and a dusty acoustic guitar part, it's a far more subdued affair than any of the work she's done with SPIN cover-starring main band. But its description of love as a "fucking bitch" still lives up to her characteristic fury. Watch the video above, which features the Mosquito singer listlessly sinking underwater in a red dress.

  • Jack White Beck Loser Where It's At Video

    Watch Jack White Play 'Loser,' 'Where It's At' With Beck in Providence

    Following his performance at this year's Newport Folk Festival, Jack White dropped in on his old pal Beck's set in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday night for a few bluesy renditions of inescapable hits like "Loser," "Where It's At," and "Pay No Mind." As The Future Heart points out, via Pitchfork, the Morning Phase singer came out for his encore with the former White Stripe and opener Sean Lennon in tow for a couple of complete crowd pleasers.White's pretty used to playing other people's songs lately (see his covers of "Royals," "99 Problems," and "Black Skinhead" for evidence), but this rare team-up completely outshines those performances. Watch footage of "Loser" above and then a couple more clips of the surprise collaborations below.
