man, I miss Mastodon. I'm glad they're following their muses and so on, but. I do miss that Leviathan-era stuff. Is there another band carrying that particular torch now?

I'm both for and against this. Ultimately this was mostly about pissing people off, which is kind of an important thing to be able to do. But I'm pretty sure he could've come up with a more creative way to do it than this.

Arguably the best part of the Starboy collaboration right there.

I know, right? I would've expected he was going to call for the outright demolition of every car on the planet if his demands were not meant or something.

I have never seen this man in motion. The stills of his face seem quite enough to keep him on mute. Great choice, Grammys

I mean, I worry for Kanye. On the one hand I do seriously believe that as a human being the guy's got a unique set of filters in terms of how he sees the world. Actually reading his rant word for word, there's a lot of stuff in there that comes off to me as a guy fighting to keep his head above the water while looking at the world around him. That said, it also seems like Kanye is caught up in the grips of a slow-burning, Akira finale-level meltdown. Each time feels like a bigger thing than the last one was. I don't know where this is heading but it definitely feels like it's heading somewhere Not Good, like in another year Kanye ends up being the Syd Barrett of hiphop or something.

This probably is going to read why more facetious than I want to it be, but... Uh, is Kanye, like, okay? Are we watching a psychotic break in slow motion here?

I mean, He's got very little incentive or cause to sugarcoat one god damn thing at this point. Moby's frequently a wearying man in public, but the only thing I'll fault him for in this letter is his failure to hit the space bar reliably.

It's probably not saying a lot, but this preview video was a lot better than any of the ones he put out for Pale Emperor and Born Villain.

November 8, 2016 on Marilyn Manson – “Say10″ Video
I usually chalk that moment up to Halloween. I'd hoped Manson would use it as a day to NOT traipse around in black and pancake makeup and maybe dress up in overalls and a corncob pipe or something. But it's probably a guaranteed payday for him every year, so....

I'm kind of impressed the Doom mask works that well with glasses.

Can't say he didn't try, with the Joanne hat and off-pink cardigan to attempt to hold the look together, but that control box is uuuuugly.

I don't know if I can approve or disapprove this. Maybe Iggy will be credited with handclaps that are edited out or something.

Far be it from me to misconstrue Aerosmith's deep conceptual underpinnings with the goings and doings of the Obama Administration.

I get what you are saying but seriously I like this version of Muse better than regular Muse, so...

Like Morrissey would really accept entrance into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to begin with.

I have this weird feeling like over the last 8 years RHCP somehow became the next Aerosmith.

Call it Hardwired. Or call it Self-Destruct. You don't need both.

Wow. I can't recall the last time I heard something so listenable get tweaked into something so unlistenable. This better have helped fund the new album.

'Dive and Slam' actually does sound like a Nine Inch Nails song title, too.

I wonder if Twiggy will end up on the new record. I'm guessing, based on these videos, probably not.

I'm getting the weirdest vibe that they're hoping anyone who likes Rihanna will click play on that.

I imagined a much more standard-issue Marilyn Manson cover out of this, so getting something a little more unconventional has to be noted, but this is...still messy and stilted and unnecessary.
