Will.i.am Adds Hashtag To Album Name

I'm going to be perfectly honest here, and it might make me look pathetic, but here it goes: I heard that will.i.am announced that he was adding a hashtag to his forthcoming 2012 LP, but I heard the details wrong. What I had misheard/misread was that a hashtag was his album name. So, whe… More »

Watch Jeff Tweedy Cover Black Eyed Peas, Wilco’s “Born Alone” Video

"Born Alone," a vaguely Spoon-sounding track from Wilco's new album The Whole Love, has a video. It's a montage of band-related imagery (guitar racks, studio knobs, faces), and it's nothing too exciting. But still! A good song! Mark Greenberg directs. Watch it below. Also below, we've got something you're definitely going to want to… More »

Wireless Festival 2011 In Photos

A weird but interesting mix of performers at this year's Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park: Battles, Bruno Mars, Yuck, Black Eyed Peas, Rocky Erickson, Tinie Tempah, Ke$ha, the Hives, Janelle Monae, Grace Jones, the Chemical Brothers, and the Horrors all performed, and those were just the bands that didn't include any cast members of… More »

The Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances Since We Were Born

Once upon a time that thing that's pictured up there happened. It was not really one of the The Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances. But it does mark a turning point after which Super Bowl Performances would be scrubbed within an inch of their life of anything resembling hormonal charge. (Unless we're talking about More »

The Black Eyed Peas Are On To That Next Level Shit (Literally)

"You can't say 'futuristic' then be afraid of the future," argues will.i.am. Oh yeah? What if you say "futuristic dystopian nightmare?" Then the future sounds pretty scary and dishertening and terrible, just like your new video. More »

Grammys 2010: Out Of Touch, Out Of Time

For the first time since I became aware of them, I won't be watching the Grammys. I made other plans weeks ago and forgot they were airing tonight. I'm fairly confident I won't be missing anything. Last year Amrit, Brandon, and I enlisted Videogum for our annual Grammys liveblog and it did not make… More »

Stereogum & team9 Present… MySplice 4: 2009 Mashed Up

There could not have been a more apt ID3 than that of Freelance Hellraiser's "Stroke Of Genius," the MP3 that launched this decade's most fitting musical legacy. Parts of two or three or thirty tracks mixed into one supersong? What better than mashups to soundtrack a generation of smartphone-wielding Adderall chompers coming of age i… More »

Grammys 2010 Nominees

Contenders were revealed in a primetime concert tonight hosted by LL Cool J and featuring the comedy of Smokey Robinson ("Don't worry Taylor, Kanye's not here."). As expected, Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Swift, and Beyoncé made out well (they're all up for Album Of The Year along with Dave Matthews Band for their worst album… More »

Bumbershoot 2009 In Photos

At Seattle's biggest music festival, rain is not unexpected; still, the downpours at Bumbershoot '09 were scary even for this neck of the Pacific Northwest. No bands got electrocuted, but the sound cut out during Black Eyed Peas' set, so that's something. Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse were huge draws as the three-day event came… More »

Street Scene 2009 In Photos

Some 30,000 people over two days crammed into the six-block area in San Diego's East Village that hosted the 25th annual Street Scene this past weekend. That's a strong number, albeit down from last year when people weren't scrambling for money to put food on their families. Still, those who made it witnessed a righteou… More »

Outside Lands 2009 In Photos

Last year, San Fran's inaugural Outside Lands festival featured Radiohead, but also power outage issues. This year: No Radiohead, but abundant electricity. Trade-offs! While Thom was twisting words at the Reading and Leeds fests in the motherland, Golden Gate park welcomed three days of artists that cut a wide demographic swath, including smart… More »

New Black Eyed Peas Video – “I Gotta Feeling”

This NSFW jammy comes with an "explicit" warning mostly because it's explicitly bad. See why will.i.am has no friends and why Fergie and her vocal cords should get a room. Mazal toss! More »

Black Eyed Peas Promise To Irritate Well Into The 31st Century

Now that will.i.am's experienced life as a hologram, he and Fergie and Apl.De.Ap and Taboo (nice names, team) show us "the digital afterlife" of their forthcoming "Boom Boom Pow" video. If you want the stupid preview Videogum's got.u.covered. More »

Meth-Addled Fergie Thought FBI Was Hiding In Muffins

Meth is definitely not funny, kids. But, if you Google "methface," you get links to pictures of Fergie. That's funny. We're serious, it's how we found the image for this post. It's no wonder our second favorite Black Eyed Pea is so associated with the drug. In the April issue of More »

Will Ferrell's take is probably funnier. But nothing beats Alanis saying "ass." (via P4K)… More »
