Video: Tubbychubcake’s “Destroy Nickelback with Laserbeams”

“Chad Kroeger rides a pony in his house when no one’s home! Nickelback must die!” Check out the video!

A Neon Green Spider Just Built a Web on My Computer

Jerk.  I showed him who’s boss. By screaming and running away. Anywhoo, I’m backstage at Lollapalooza listening to the Gypsy-Punk delightfulness of Gogol Bordello.  I had a chance to talk with Against Me!’s Tom Gabel,  and Davey Havok and Jade Puget of AFI, check those out during the Online 5 @ 9 next week.  Chatting with Mike Ness Social D in a few, and later, I shall attempt to sneak into Green Day’s inner lair and force them to talk to me.

Passion Pit Encore…

Ok, so they didn’t pull this one out last night at the US Cellular Connection Stage with Leinenkugel’s and FM1021 at Summerfest, but it’s still pretty sweet.  And perhaps it will help you cure your gnarly dance-party hangover!  When Passion Pit was asked to cover a song that influenced them when they were younger, what did they chose?   The Pumpkins’   “Tonight, Tonight.”

Bonnaroo Update #1

Hey guys! Mark and Kelly from the promo staff here! We have traveled over 500 miles to Nashville, TN in anticipation of Bonnaroo 2010. Over the course of this weekend we will be updating the blog with everything Bonnaroo.

Big news came from Conan O’Brien’s twitter  saying “Jack White & I are doing something cool tomorrow. Hint it involves a LOT of Tears for Fears songs.”

The tweet was followed by this video.

Conan will be at Bonnaroo this year, as well as Jack White with the Dead Weather.  So, the question remains who is the woman in the cape and hat behind Jack? We will have more updates for you about this and all things Bonnaroo tomorrow.

New Muse Video

Continuing with the Twilight Saga soundtracks is Muse with their song “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”.  You can view the video on MTV or VH1.

Unicorns, puppies, and lollipops.

Is your mom still looking over your shoulder? No? Good. Actually, we meant, blood, fire, and death.   Here’s the latest video from How to Destroy Angels, a new project from Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Manndig. Enjoy. Well,  in a creepy way.   EP is coming out this summer.

RIP, CAGE MATCH. 2008(WE THINK) – 2010.

Here, watch this, it’ll add to the effect and such:

FOR THE PAST, OH, COUPLE, TWO, THREE YEARS, WE’VE BEEN BRINGING YOU SOMETIMES GRATUITOUS, BUT MOSTLY RIDICULOUS VIOLENCE, ON A NIGHTLY BASIS. HERE, CHEETOS WERE MORE THAN DELICIOUS CHEESY SNACKS, THEY WERE WEAPONS DAMMIT. HELL, SOME OF THE FINEST WEAPONRY MANKIND HAS EVER KNOWN WAS CREATED HERE—-THOSE POLISH SAUSAGE NUNCHUKS DID SOME REAL DAMAGE, DIDN’T THEY?!? SIGH. THEY DID.

THE CAGE MATCH WAS BORN OUT OF LAZINESS, A WAY TO LET YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS ABOUT NEW MUSIC SO WE DIDN’T HAVE TO. BUT ALAS, THE SHIP HAS SAILED, THINGS HAVE RUN THEIR COURSE, ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END, NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY, THAT WHICH DOESN’T KILL US MAKES US STRONGER, A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED, AND A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE.

WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO SAY, IS THAT THE CAGE MATCH ERA HAS OFFICIALLY COME TO AN END. ALL THE GREAT BANDS AND SONGS WE’VE INTRODUCED YOU TO ARE NOW IN A BETTER PLACE. THE CAGE MATCH WARRIORS HAVE FOUGHT THEIR LAST FIGHT. THE CHAMPIONS’ COUCH, MADE OUT OF HOSTESS CUPCAKES, WILL NOW OFFICIALLY BE EATEN WITH A LARGE BUCKET OF MILK AND FOLLOWED PROMPTLY WITH A BOTTLE OF CUERVO.

WE WILL FIND NEW HORIZONS, AND NEW WAYS TO EXPOSE YOU TO NEW MUSIC. LOOK FOR DETAILS SOON, BUT UNTIL THEN, WE BID YOU ADIEU, CAGEY MATCHEY. NICE KNOWIN’ YA
