Last Thursday the Pumpkins stopped in New Jersey of all places to do a 30th anniversary show and they loaded up the set list with a lot of special guests. One of the more interesting combos was Mark McGrath, yeah of Sugar Ray, coming out to join the Pumpkins for a cover of Judas Priest’s Breaking The Law. There were so many other great moments from the show so I have loaded up a ton of them below, check them out.

10 Years is making their third stop on tour in Colorado this year at the Black Sheep on Sunday.

Check out 10 Years’...read more
For tonight’s cover we take a listen to the creepified Message In A Bottle from Machine Head’s 1999 album The Burning Red. The original was popularized by The Police and was a huge hit for the band.

To celebrate the start of the tour the duo released a cover of The Beatles’ Helter Skelter. I wouldn’t be surprised if the pair teamed up to play the cover live each night on tour since they just dropped it as the tour started. It’s also unsurprising that they picked this particular Beatles song as Helter Skelter was also famously covered by all around mastermind of evil Charles Manson back in 60’s....read more
