Remember a few years ago when 1000 people got together and played the Foo Fighter’s tune Learn To Fly in order to get the band to play their town? The 1000 piece band is back and now I think they might be trying to raise Kurt Cobain from the dead. The musicians are gathered in what looks like a soccer stadium and crank out the Nirvana classic to a lot of lights and people in the stands. Unfortunately I still cannot understand the lyrics to the song, so I guess they nailed it! Also, what’s with the dude in the 80’s sport coat waving a towel above his head?
Your pals from Ghost are having a special Valentine’s Day sale. Some of the items are pretty normal, t-shirt, pint glasses, jewelry, but then you see the $100 GOLD PAPA EMERITUS DILDO!! That’s right, $100, for a dildo, not even a vibrator! Techincally it’s called the Phallos Mortuus dildo. You do get a nice logo adorned bag to go along with it, but the bag is likely to draw attention, so it’s not the best if you’re trying to be discreet. Additionally the band is selling a few condoms for $20, not as expensive as the dildo, but still expensive as condoms are concerned. No word on whether or not the dildo is anatomically the same as the Papa’s donger, but it probably is, right? The only other band that I have heard of selling dildo’s is Rammstein, who had a box set of six, one from each member of the band. I know that I wouldn’t pay $100 for the dildo, but if you are going too you might as well get some more use out of it. Below is a quick list of things that you can also use your $100 Phallos Mortuus dildo for:

In 2015 System of a Down played their first show in their homeland of Armenia to bring attention to the 100th anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide. The band played for almost two and half hours and hit over two-thirds of their catalog on the 40 songs that they played. The band rips through the emotionally charged set in the rain for thousands of fans and in my mind puts on their best live performance that I have ever seen. If you got two and a half hours or just two and a half minutes check it out for yourself!
Metal Allegiance, the mishmashed super group composed of a ton of metal icons, recently got together and performed Metallica’s Seek and Destroy. You can tell the group is having fun and not too concerned with how well the tune flows. Although the lineup can vary all of these people hit the stage; Megadeth’s David Ellefson, Dream Theater’s Mike Portnoy, Testament’s Alex Skolnick, Metal Alleigance’s Mark Menghi, Testament‘s Chuck Billy, Anthrax‘s Charlie Benante, Fozzy‘s Chris Jericho, Death Angel‘s Mark Osegueda, Machine Head‘s Phil Demmel, Slayer and Exodus‘ Gary Holt, The Winery Dogs‘ Billy Sheehan, Motorhead‘s Mikkey Dee and Halestorm‘s Arejay Hale. It’s very cool to see such a large group get together to play the jam, so check it out!
Hellyeah just dropped a new video for their tune Love Falls. The video is pretty dark but if you stick around to the very end the band shares details on how to reach out if you are dealing with depression.
On Friday the Prophets of Rage were playing the Anti-Inaugural Ball in Los Angeles and the former Rage guys brought Chris Cornell out to sing three songs from the time when the band was together as Audioslave. The band cranks through Like A Stone, Cochise, and Show Me How To Live. As Cornell mentions it has been 12 years since the band last performed together. I am excited to hear the band perform their hits again but you can definitely tell it has been a long time with how rusty Cornell sounds on the tunes. Either way you should check it out and take a listen for yourself!
Jonathan Davis, lead singer of Korn, just started a campaign to help combat bullying and suicide. Davis is selling a specially created t-shirt design with part of the proceeds going to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Stomp Out Bullying organizations. You can see Davis’ Facebook post announcing the launch of the campaign below and if you want to get a shirt of your own you can do so here!
Hey guys, I'm launching a 2 week T-Shirt brand campaign with Merchful today to help those that are suffering from…
Motionless In White are on the End Is Here tour with Falling In Reverse. On Friday last week they were in Arizona where they dropped a cover of System Of A Down’s Chop Suey. I think they did a great job of keeping with the tone of the original, take a listen, what do you think?
