    GWAR Decided Not to Kill Dave Grohl Because He Said Nice Things About Oderus

    While Jack White gently ribbed them for having a plethora of guitar players, it turns out that Dave Grohl and his merry band of Foo Fighters were facing a much more serious threat in the form of GWAR. The horror-thrash band's drummer, Jizmak Da Gusha, posted a video to YouTube explaining that he attended the Foos' crowdsourced Richmond, Virginia show, and had "every intention" of going "to kill Dave Grohl."What saved Grohl's life was his tribute to GWAR's late frontman, Dave "Oderus Urungus" Brockie, who passed away in March.During the concert, Grohl talked about how the local legend paid him a tremendous compliment: "I remember seeing this interview with Dave Brockie where they asked Brockie about [GWAR's] Grammy nomination, and somehow, he made his way to me, and he said, 'Dave Grohl?

  • Jeff the Brotherhood 'Gouge Away' Pixies Cover 'Dig the Classics' EP

    JEFF the Brotherhood Scuzzy Up the Pixies' 'Gouge Away' for Covers EP

    While putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2012's excellent Hypnotic Nights LP, JEFF the Brotherhood devoted some time for a fun litte EP called Dig the Classics, which features covers of some of their favorite songs. The Nashville duo of brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall recorded renditions of My Bloody Valentine's "Come in Alone," Teenage Fanclub's "Mad Dog 20/20," Beck's "Totally Confused," and the Pixies' "Gouge Away," which you can hear for the first time below. In standard JEFF fashion, the Orralls strip the Doolittle classic down and scuzzify it with some grimy guitar work underneath Jake's languid vocals. Dig the Classics is due out September 30 via Warner, and JEFF the Brotherhood are on the road through October with Music Band and Diarrhea Planet supporting. 

  • Karen O 'Rapt' Live Video Sofar Sounds New York living room concert 'Crush Songs'

    Watch Karen O Perform 'Rapt' in a Fan's Living Room

    In the lead-up to the release of her debut solo album Crush Songs, Karen O announced that she would hold a handful of listening parties and intimate concerts in fans' living rooms around the world. Chances are, you weren't one of the lucky few to either attend these special events or be the one to host the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman in your home, but at least you can check out this video of Karen performing "Rapt" in New York on August 27. For all of her stage power with her regular band, it's interesting to see O playing solo, looking almost vulnerable as she coos the semi-sweet words and strums her acoustic guitar a few feet away from a roomful of strangers. Watch the performance above, courtesy of Sofar Sounds, and, if you're lucky, catch Karen O's handful of shows in California, London, and Berlin.

  • Flying Lotus 'Coronus, the Terminator' you're dead

    Flying Lotus Returns With Shadowy, Soulful 'Coronus, the Terminator'

    With his fifth album You're Dead! coming on October 7 via Warp, Flying Lotus has revealed yet another track from the much-anticipated LP. Unlike the frenetic Kendrick Lamar collaboration "Never Catch Me," this song is much more relaxed and soulful, anchored by a simple beat, subtle-yet-forceful bass line, and layers of barely decipherable falsetto vocals. Put all those ingredients together and you get this eerily beautiful joint, "Coronus, the Terminator," the name of which has more to do with Greek mythology and less about killer cyborgs from the future (sigh). Enjoy it below, and catch FlyLo on tour through the end of November.

  • Pains of Being Pure at Heart 'Poison Touch' A Sunny Day In Glasgow Jen Goma

    The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Try to Give Taylor Swift a 'Poison Touch'

    Following the May release of their Days of Abandon album, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart are back with "Poison Touch," one of five new tracks that will appear on the upcoming deluxe edition of their third LP. As frontman Kip Berman tells The Line of Best Fit (which premiered the upbeat ditty), "I wrote 'Poison Touch' for Taylor Swift, but I think her number was in my old phone. So I gave it to A Sunny Day in Glasgow's Jen Goma instead." Goma's vocals add even more of an '80s pop sheen to the track, and we don't mean that in a bad way. While you wait for the September 22 release of the deluxe Days of Abandon, check out SPIN's profile on the band, Young Adult Friction: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's Rebirth and take a virtual tour of Berman's Brooklyn apartment.

  • U2 Apple Music File Format Digital secret project

    U2 and Apple Working on 'Secret Project' to Save the Music Industry

    Though they released Songs of Innocence for free, U2 got paid in a big way by Apple, who reportedly invested $100 million into the album's creation and the subsequent iPhone-hawking ad campaign. The longtime partnership between the Irish band and the tech giant has more in store for the world in the form of a "secret project" that could revolutionize the music industry and help artists get compensated for their work.The details of the plan are relatively vague, coming to us from a preview of Time magazine's upcoming cover story on the band. "Bono tells Time he hopes that a new digital music format in the works will prove so irresistibly exciting to music fans that it will tempt them again into buying music — whole albums as well as individual tracks," says the report.

  • Ryan Adams 'My Wrecking Ball' Video

    Ryan Adams Brings War and Cheerleaders to 'My Wrecking Ball' Video

    After enlisting Elvira for "Gimme Something Good" and bringing in comedians Garry Shandling and Jeff Garlin for a string of bizarre, hilarious promotional clips, Ryan Adams takes a simpler tack for his new "My Wrecking Ball" video. He's shown singing the song in the dark, as VHS-like footage of highways, war, a parade, and more are superimposed over him, a fitting visual for the somber song from his self-titled solo album. Watch it above, and look out for Ryan Adams, out now via Pax Am.

  • U2 $100 Million Apple Deal 'Songs of Innocence' iTUnes

    U2's iTunes Deal Reportedly Cost Apple $100 Million

    Uno, dos, tres, ka-ching! Love it or hate it, U2's surprise album Songs of Innocence is probably in your iTunes and it didn't cost you a cent. But there's no such thing as a free lunch, and the Irish quartet is reportedly set to make bank on the LP, with Apple shelling out an estimated $100 million to hawk the record and lead single "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)" in conjunction with the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch. (Perhaps they should've just tited it iLLUMINATI?)That dollar figure comes from various sources, and U2 manager Guy O'Seary doesn't dispute it in a new interview with Billboard. He points out that Songs of Innocence went out to 7 percent of Earth's population in one fell swoop, and that Apple is giving tens of millions to AIDS charity RED, lest anyone criticize Bono and Co.

  • Chris Brown Ray Rice Advice anger management

    Chris Brown to Ray Rice: 'Seek Therapy or Become a Monster'

    With all the attention being paid to Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his now-wife in an elevator, it was inevitable that comparisons would be made to Chris Brown's brutal 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. The latter case is the most famous celebrity domestic-violence incident in recent memory, and both events share the fact that the public saw images of the victims after (or during) the attack.Yesterday, Rihanna was affected by the fallout from Rice's offenses when the NFL decided to scrap a video of her performing "Run This Town" before a game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Ravens, who cut Rice this week.
