    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 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.

  • 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.

  • Primus Willy Wonka Concept Album Free Tickets

    Primus Offers Five Fans Concert Tickets for Life in 'Willy Wonka'-Inspired Album Release

    Primus' Willy Wonka-inspired album Primus and the Chocolate Factory With the Fungi Ensemble is already streaming thanks to the New York Times, but as its official release approaches on October 21 they've announced a little more exciting news about the rollout. Like the golden ticket campaign that spurs the action in Roald Dahl's novel and the Gene Wilder-starring film, Primus has decided to offer a pretty special reward to anyone who ends up purchasing one of five gold copies of the new record. Should you happen to come across one, you'll be granted free entry to any Primus show for life. Rolling Stone points out that the exciting news comes with a video released by Les Claypool's proggy crew that recalls the opening sequence of the film, but instead of showing the production of chocolate, it depicts the process of cutting the band's chocolate-colored LP. Watch that above.

  • Camron Ebola Mask Joke Dipset

    Cam'ron Is Trying to Stop Ebola With Custom Surgical Masks

    As this summer's Ebola outbreak continues to spread and the general climate around the whole thing creeps closer toward complete global panic, we could use a leader to step up and make us all feel ok. And who better to do so than Cam'ron, who took to Instagram on Thursday to offer his plan for stopping the spread of the gruesome disease: surgical masks with Cam'ron's face on them. The one problem, obviously, is that Ebola can't be transmitted through the air, so the masks wouldn't help too much. But hey, they look pretty cool, so even though the whole thing is winking joke from Killa Cam, it might still be worth your $20. Check a picture below via The Fader and order it over at Cam's Dipset USA webstore. And who knows, maybe he knows something we don't. Maybe Dipset could save us all. Loading View on Instagram
