Green Day Among Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees

The inductees for this year’s round of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame options have been announced. Green Day is perhaps the most noteworthy entrance, among others including Lou Reed and Ringo Starr. Several other groups, including Nine Inch Nails, did not make this year’s cut. And while already in the Hall with The Police, Sting attempted to enter as their own solo artist category. This resulted in rejection. So what do you think of the results? Are you glad Green Day was among those who made it? Who would you…

World Cup Playlist: The Group Stages Are Over

Bad Movies With Great Soundtracks

Have you ever seen a movie so bad you wanted to hate it, but something was holding you back and you couldn’t dislike it entirely? I have a theory on the matter: the redeemable quality that saved those movies from your hatred was the soundtrack. We all know the effect that music can have, especially on us as individuals, and I think you might agree that it includes making not-so-good movies into relatively tolerable ones. Now brace yourself, some of the films on this list may be your favorites or…

The Recent Reunion Resurgence & Our Nostalgia Obsession

Nostalgia is strange, and in the current hip culture of 2014 it’s even more bizarre than it used to be.  Now I don’t mean to be nostalgic about nostalgia, but there used to be a time when nostalgic things that we joyously reminisced about stayed in the past, exactly where we remembered them just as we remembered them; all perfect and cleaned up by years of misremembering—and most importantly, in the past.  But recently, we seem to have this fascination with all things ‘90s or vintage and relating to our…
