• Spoon New Song Video Primavera

    See Spoon Debut a Raucous New Song at Primavera Sound

    Spoon have really been playing the details of their next album close to the vest. We know that the Austin band is going to do something next week, thanks to a photo they posted that says only, "SPOON R.I.P. JUNE 10." In early March, they uploaded a 27-second studio video showing a squalling segment from an unknown song. Last year, frontman Britt Daniel told SPIN's Marc Hogan that their new material had a little more soul than usual. Plus, there are the recent reports that they left longtime label Merge for Loma Vista, which is distributed by Universal.All that doesn't add up to much, but thanks to a fan at Primavera Sound, we can now see footage of Spoon performing a brand new track almost in its entirety. "I came home last night, I heard no good news," Daniel sings at the beginning over a tense groove that turns into an upbeat chorus.

  • Smash Mouth Third Eye Blind Beef Feud

    All-Star Beef: Smash Mouth Reignite Feud With Third Eye Blind

    At a festival headlined by Outkast and the Cure, at which TV on the Radio debuted no less than three new songs, our pet favorite news item has to do with beef between two '90s nostalgia acts you might not have even known were still playing.Last weekend, BottleRock Napa hosted both Smash Mouth and Third Eye Blind, booking them on separate stages at the same time slot in a cruel twist of fate for concertgoers looking to relive that specific corss-section of the past. Apparently the beautiful scenery and abudance of quality wine didn't provide enough good vibes for Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell. According to various people on Twitter, at one point in the set, he said, "Third Eye Blind can suck my dick."Harsh. But whatever ill will exists between the bands didn't start in Northern California.

  • Angel Haze Ludacris '22 Jump Street' Theme Song

    Hear Angel Haze and Ludacris' Wacky '22 Jump Street' Theme Song

    The upcoming 22 Jump Street sequel finds Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum going undercover at a college, and spring break plays a big part as the two detectives try to crack their next case. Turns out the producers enlisted Angel Haze and Ludacris for a dance-driven theme song that features a psychosis-inducing beat wobbling wildly beneath verses that detail the plot. It's ready-made for an opening montage or a crazy party scene with Luda dropping lines like "We infiltrate the dealers and find the damn supply," and Haze rhyming about "Schmidt, Jenko, the whole damn crew." It's rare that a film-driven song stands the test of time (outside of Ray Parker, Jr.'s "Ghostbusters," that is), but the single will be out June 10, while the movie hits theaters on June 13.

  • 50 Cent First Pitch Masturbation Injury 'Animal Ambition' Video

    50 Cent Blames First Pitch Woes on 'Excessive Masturbation' Injury

    50 Cent's awful first pitch continues to be the biggest talking point surrounding the release of his fifth album, Animal Ambition. The Queens rapper continued milking that possibly phony piece of publicity today when he took part in a Reddit AMA. Take it away, Fiddy:Well, how about that? This, from the same man who, in 2012, tweeted out his four-step plan for people to stop masturbating, which he believes is a sin: "Step 1. To avoid the urge to masturbate stop going to porn sites. Step 2. Make a conscious decision not to turn your head after people walk by you. Step 3. Do not go to strip clubs. Step 4. Do not look at lust filled magazines."Either he's back on the jackin' wagon or he's just playing us. We'll go with the latter. Meanwhile, 50 also released a video for the title track for the new album.

  • Ban Metallica Glastonbury Petition James Hetfield Hunter

    Glastonbury Fans Try to Ban Metallica Over James Hetfield's Hunting Habits

    Though he's not quitting his day job, Metallica frontman James Hetfield has a new gig: Narrating the History Channel's upcoming series The Hunt, which chronicles a trek to Kodiak, Alaska, to kill brown bears.That news is not going over well with fans of the Glastonbury festival, which Metallica will headline this year alongside Arcade Fire, Kasabian, Jack White, and the Black Keys. Someone started a Facebook page called "Remove Metallica from Glastonbury Festival for their support of Bear Hunting," with the obvious intent of getting the metal legends banned from the bill. The page, which went up on May 25, features this description: "Metallica's lead singer James Hetfield is a big game hunter and promoter. This is incompatible with Glastonbury Festivals ideals."Hetfield is, indeed, an avid hunter and member of the NRA."I love my guns.

  • Courtney Love Personalized Rose Breed

    Courtney Love Wants to Fund Her Own Breed of Glittery Rose

    When you're rich and have the money to get pretty much anything you want, you might as well dream big. Courtney Love is certainly dreaming big, and somewhat scientifically, with her wish to fund the development of "a hybrid rose that's glittering and silver" and have it named in her honor. This bit of info comes from the latest installment in her "Courtney Love on" YouTube series, in which she mainly talks about random topics while sitting in the back of an SUV. "To say I'm not crazy about roses is crazy, because I love roses," she says at the beginning of the clip, referencing the incredible number of Hole fans who've made public claims that she has a thing against the preferred flower of high school beaus. She goes onto inform us that Dolly Parton, Metallica, and Loretta Lynn all have a specific breed of the flower forever immortalized with their names.

  • Stream Morrissey's Gypsy-Tinged 'Earth Is the Loneliest Planet'

    Stream Morrissey's Gypsy-Tinged 'Earth Is the Loneliest Planet'

    Morrissey's rapid roll-out of his 10th solo record, World Peace Is None of Your Business, continues today with the release of the song "Earth Is the Loneliest Place," slightly over 24 hours after he released the spoken-word version in a video that starred Pamela Anderson. The track features Gypsy-like guitar and organs with electronic clashes and bangs — a surprisingly cohesive mix that brings an urgency tempered by Morrissey's almost-deadpan laments. The electric guitar was a little more pronounced in the song's live debut, but hey, we're not complaining. Listen below via Spotify and get the new LP July 15 from Harvest Records.

    The death of Gwar's Dave Brockie, the frontman of the shock-metal band who performed as Oderus Urungus, has been determined as an accidental heroin overdose, Richmond, Virginia CBS affiliate WTVR reported. The State Medical Examiner's Office revealed that the official cause of death was "acute heroin toxicity, means: accident."The 50-year-old Brockie was found dead in his Richmond home on March 23 by his roommate. At the time, the police announced they did not suspect any foul play, but did find evidence of heroin use. His penchant for drug use was well publicized, including a 2010 Decibel profile that began with the writer smoking crack with Brockie."It's 2pm on a Thursday, and Decibel is in Richmond, VA, smoking crack behind a Dumpster with GWAR front-cretin Oderus Urungus," author J.

  • Ice-T Body Count 'Bitch in the Pit' Song

    Ice-T Pays Respect to Lady-Moshers on Body Count's 'Bitch in the Pit'

    Is the world ready for a Body Count comeback? Ice-T's thrash-metal outfit is set to return with its fifth album, Manslaughter, which they recently previewed with the aggro "Talk Shit, Get Shot." Now they're back with the hardcore ode "Bitch in the Pit," in which Ice screams about a Doc Marten-wearing woman who can more than hold her own in the shit at a show. "She came here to fight / She says she'll die tonight," goes one part of the chorus to the song, which also features a terrific speed-metal solo at its climax. It probably won't go down in the history books as a feminist anthem, but at least Ice is recognizing the women who are often mixing it up in the circle at punk and thrash shows.

  • Hurray for the Riff Raff 'I Know It's Wrong (But That's Alright)' Video

    Hurray for the Riff Raff Join Girl Gangs for 'I Know It's Wrong (But That's Alright)' Video

    Hurray for the Riff Raff, whose latest LP Small Town Heroes made SPIN's picks for the 50 Best Albums of 2014 So Far, have long been strong supporters of feminism and the LGBT cause. Singer Alynda Lee Segarra identifies as queer, and fiddler Yosi Perlstein is transgender, and they used their new video for "I Know It's Wrong (But It's Alright)" to have a bit of fun with their friends in those communities. The clip, which premiered at Rookie, sees Hurray and co. portraying two gangs, the Gaslight Girls and the Morrisons, sometimes battling it out but mostly just hanging at the roller rink or with their sweet old cars.
