Pearl Jam Named Official Ambassadors Of Record Store Day

Pearl Jam Named Official Ambassadors Of Record Store Day

Pearl Jam has always been a big proponent of independent record stores, and this year they’ll be doing their part to get more fans to experience them. The Seattle rockers have just been named official ambassadors of Record Store Day 2019, which this year is set for April 13th.

“Independent record stores are hugely important to me, and have been ever since I was 12 years-old,” PJ guitarist Mike McCready shares. “Before I even really knew what they were – there was a certain feeling of ‘this is a dream come true,’ and it’s a wonderland and there’s so much to learn in here… and it’s still that way.”

He adds, “Support every independent record store that you can…It’s a place to learn. It’s a place to have fun. And it’s a place to discover new music.”

The Best & Worst Super Bowl Halftime Shows

The Best & Worst Super Bowl Halftime Shows

The Super Bowl halftime show is always quite the spectacle, but some years and performers have certainly been better than others. So, who were the best and the worst?

Well, the “New York Post” certainly has their thoughts, listing among the best Prince’s 2007 performance, Michael Jackson’s show in 1993, Beyonce’s in 2013 and Janet Jackson’s controversial halftime show, which featured P.Diddy, Nelly, Kid Rock, and, of course, Justin Timberlake, who infamously exposed her nipple.

As for the worst, the paper chose, The Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash in 2011, Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias and Toni Braxton in 2000, and Gloria Estefan, Brian Boitano, Dorthy Hamill and the U.S. Hockey Team in 1992

Bring Me The Horizon is giving fans another preview of their upcoming album “Amo” with a new single, “Mother Tongue.”

In a new interview, singer Oli Sykes calls the track the “most gushing, out-there, straight up long song” they’ve ever written. “It’s about when I first met my new wife,” he explains. “She’s from Brazil, and she didn’t speak so much English. From the very start, we had a really strong connection and it was just a crazy time.”

“Amo” is due for release this Friday, January 25th.

Metallica Shares Judas Priest Cover Featuring Lars Ulrich On Vocals

In a new behind-the-scenes video, Metallica rocks out a cover of Judas Priest while warming up backstage at a concert in Pittsburgh. Drummer Lars Ulrich can be seen showing off his vocal chops, taking over on vocals for James Hetfield for the cover of “Delivering The Goods.”

In the clip, Ulrich gets the band hyped for their show by asking each member to share an inspirational message. Bassist Robert Trujillo says, “Social D is in the house,” Hetfield offers, “I feel like s**t,” and Kirk Hammett yells, “Hell bent for leather!” That inspires Lars to kick off the “Delivering The Goods” cover to “lighten the mood up.”
