Music Cities: Grand Rapids, Michigan

Michigan is no stranger to music. Hitsville USA a.k.a. Motown was founded in Detroit. Plenty of Michigan rockers came from the mitten state: Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Diana Ross (The Supremes) Glen Frey (The Eagles), Iggy Pop, Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Jack White, Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Grand Funk Railroad, The Romantics, Mike Posner, Sufjan Stevens, and the list goes on… While Detroit Rock City gets plenty of high praises for its music (thanks for the 1979 shout-out, KISS), a Western Michigan city is also making a way onto the…

LIVE Review: Foo Fighters Live At Citi Field Night Two

You’ve all heard the buzz surrounding Dave Grohl and his broken leg. Well rather than cancelling the Foo Fighters whole U.S. tour, Grohl concluded that the show must go on and built a miraculous throne made of guitars. Though crippled, Grohl still rocked harder Thursday night at Citi Field than most able bodied performers. His body weaving in his chair, hair drastically flying through the air as his head rocked in classic Dave Grohl fashion, as the Foo Fighters played a near three hour show for the 50,000+ that attended the second night of…

PLAYLIST: Degrassi Soundtrack Pt 3

This week was mostly songs from seasons 5. Though this is still near the beginning of the show, there were enough songs that I had more of a choice when it came to choosing the top 10. One thing I found interesting about this week is that Degrassi resuses artists a lot and even mentions them in the show itself. Even in the alternative universe of the teen drama, these bands and artists really exist. Check out my top 10 soundtrack songs from season 5 of Degrassi below. Check back…

GWAR Frontman David “Oderus Urungus” Brockie Dead At 50

Top 10 Metal Christmas Songs

Christmas is never the first thing you think about when you think of bands like Motörhead or Slipknot. In fact, most people would probably associate Krampus, the Yuletide demon-beast of German folklore, with a lot of metal bands before they even got around to Santa Claus. However, every now and then the metal world surprises us with one or two Christmas songs (or even the occasional album); and it’s an awesome bundle of guitar riffs, drum licks, and bass “dirnts” all wrapped up in a nice green and red bow. …
