Growing up in the veritable golden age of cultural nostalgia that was the '00s, it never really occured to me that my own decade might eventually be revisited. Even now, it's surprising that anyone would care to go back and try to relive m ... More >>
Yesterday, we sighed and felt warm and fuzzy inside when angel-faced pixie Brit Ellie Goulding revealed that she'd love to make an album with her boyfriend, Skrillex, with whom she shares a hairstyle. Adorable! We'd like to take a moment to actively encourage both parties to make this happen, not on ... More >>
Last Wednesday, Ryan Seacrest had the dubious honor of premiering No Doubt's new single, "Push and Shove," on his radio show. Before we subject you to this clusterfuck of a song, please take into account the fact that bassist Tony Kanal recently told Rolling Stone that the track was No Doubt's "Bohe ... More >>
In all likelihood, you've spent the weekend doing exactly the same thing we did -- trying to come to terms with the loss of Adam "MCA" Yauch and getting together with friends for Beastie Boys parties in his memory, trying to imagine the musical landscape without the trio. Truthfully, it's hard to th ... More >>
Yesterday, we found out from a British music news website that, like Santa Claus, Barack Obama keeps a "Nice" list -- or rather a list of people he wants to have supporting him in his re-election campaign. We've seen the list, and alongside all of the alphabetized politicians, business and sports ... More >>
This week, the world oohed and aahed as news of the birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby girl emerged (we bet Ms. Knowles managed to look radiant even during that heinous labor process). Then stories started emerging that the couple were calling their new offspring Blue Ivy. Hmpf. Blue and Ivy on their ... More >>
Prepare to be hit by a tsunami of nausea as we inform you that Train -- probably the most insipid band from the Bay Area -- is bringing out a wine (called "Drops Of Jupiter" -- after one of its biggest songs -- just to annoy us that little bit more), apparently aided by San Francisco Wine Co. Th ... More >>
In this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, No Doubt announced that it's about to release its first album in nearly 10 years (try not to fall over yourself with excitement). Bassist Tony Kanal explained: "We started writing in 2008. We spent that year trying to write, and we hit a block." The inte ... More >>

Better Than: DIY Jazzercise in your living room.
If there's one lesson show-goers can take away from a live Yelle performance, it's that enthusiasm will get you everywhere. And someti ... More >>

Better than: Dudes who look like Mick Jagger
Ripped tank tops barely concealing black bras. Gold-sequined skirts. Fishnet tights. Tousled blonde locks. Eyeliner thick as warpaint. Fuzzy cat-ear headbands. Hand-drawn dollar ... More >>
Fact: it is impossible to fight crazy. So what the hell are
the radio stations of Malaysia
thinking, going up against Lady Gaga? Apparently they've taken her new LGBT-empowerment
anthem, "Born This Way" and removed all the, uh, LGBT content. Way to miss the
whole point of the song, Malaysia!
Gaga ... More >>
