Who said pigs can’t fly? It certainly wasn’t Green Day, as the Californian punk trio has teamed up with video game developer Rovio to create a new musical episode for the ubiquitous ‘Angry Birds Friends’ mobile game franchise. The ‘Angry Birds: Green Day Edition’ includes 10 never-before-seen themed levels and new “bad pig” characters inspired by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and his bandmates Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool.
Earlier this year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced plans to unleash a whole wealth of new music the old-fashioned way: on vinyl. In fact, a total of nine 7-inch vinyl singles featuring 18 previously unreleased outtakes recorded while the band was making its ‘By the Way’ album are due in total, and the first release — with ‘Strange Man’ as the A-side and ‘Long Progression’ the B-side — drops this Friday (Aug. 10).
Just a few days after Lana Del Rey turned in a cover of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ during a concert in Sydney, Australia (check it out here), Courtney Love took to Twitter to point out something to LDR that neither the she nor the rest of the general public reading Love’s tweets would really care to hear: that ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is about Courtney Love’s vagina.
Last week, Green Day released ‘Oh Love,’ the first single off their forthcoming ‘Uno!’ album, and the song has already made a major impact at radio. In fact, ‘Oh Love’ becomes just the third song in the history of the Billboard Rock Songs chart to debut at No. 1 on the tally, racking up 13 million first-week audience impressions from 145 reporting stations in the process.
“Please don’t pass me by,”Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong sings near the beginning of ‘Oh Love,’ the first single from the first album of his band’s forthcoming trio of full-length releases, which are titled ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!,’ and ‘¡Tre!’ and are scheduled to drop in a series starting in September of this year, running through January 2013. While there was a period in the early part of the decade when it looked like music fans had moved on from Green Day, it seems like these days they have nothing to worry about — nobody is going to be passing them by.
Who knew the front cover art of an album that’s nearly 20 years old could cause such a controversy? The Smashing Pumpkins made their mark on the alternative nation with 1993′s ‘Siamese Dream,’ and in addition to hits like ‘Today’ and ‘Cherub Rock,’ the album featured quite memorable cover art: two adorable little girls with cherub-like faces who looked enough alike to be considered twins.
When it comes to big tips, there are big tips, and then there are big tips! Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl reportedly left one lucky bartender at the Smith and Wollensky restaurant in Philadelphia’s swanky Rittenhouse Square Hotel something that would definitely fall into the latter category recently when he reportedly laid down $1,000 after ordering a single drink. Yes, you read that correctly — that’s a one followed by three zeros for just one drink.
Sad news swept the Internet Friday (May 4) with the death of Beastie Boys rapper Adam “MCA” Yauch at the age of 47. Of course many artists immediately took to Twitter to send their condolences and pay their respects, and below is a sampling of what they had to say. Be sure to keep checking back because we will keep adding to this list — we expect there to be tons of tweets from artists. MCA was a very popular and much beloved man.
While Billy Corgan‘s desire to be an ‘American Idol’ judge remains unfulfilled, Smashing Pumpkins fans still have something to look forward to — a June 18 release date has been announced for ‘Oceania,’ the band’s first album since 2007′s ‘Zeitgeist.’
Hulk Hogan really rocked it in the ring back in the day, but did you know that the former wrestling champ almost rocked out with Metallica?

Legendary producer Rick Rubin is known for his work on massively successful releases from the likes of Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Linkin Park, but Corey Taylor, whose Slipknot recorded their 2004 album ‘Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)’ with Rubin, doesn’t exactly have a glowing review of the experience.
