Frances Bean Issues Statement Re: Mom’s Twitter Rant

Earlier this week, Courtney Love lobbied some hateful tweets against Dave Grohl, accusing him of trying to seduce Frances Bean Cobain and having a "romney rape thing about him." She also claimed Grohl hired a “submissive drummer” who looked like Kurt, named his daughter after a Hole song, and greedily licensed Nirvana music to… More »

Courtney Love Alleges Dave Grohl Seduced Frances Bean, Tweets A Lot About It

As is well-established at this point, shit is bound to go down on Courtney Love's Twitter. But, her account (which is set to private) veered into creepy territory as she lobbed accusations at Dave Grohl, who was allegedly handsy with his former bandmate's daughter recently. The tirade also questions the nature of Foo Fighter… More »

Tenacious D – “To Be The Best” Video

Novelty-metal all-stars Tenacious D have been out of the game, as a duo anyway, since their 2006 movie The Pick Of Destiny failed brutally. They're back with a new album now, and credit them for taking on that movie's miserable performance in this, the first video from new LP Rize Of The Fenix. It's probably… More »

Dave Grohl Clarifies Grammy Speech

Dave Grohl said some stuff during his Grammy acceptance speech that came across as anti-digital, anti-technology, anti-Skrillex that he thought he should clarify (of course, the whole juxtaposition of his "long live the rock!" speech at odds with his band's performance with Deadmau5 later in the broadcast. The Grammys, ladies and gents!). Here's Dave,… More »

Ryan Adams Covers Ratt Acoustic

Ryan Adams has often been photographed wearing Ratt T-shirts, and as it turns out, he wasn't just being cute with it. On a recent visit to NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday, Adams broke out a gorgeous solo-acoustic cover of the glam-metal band's 1984 nugget "Round And Round" -- not a faithful cover by any means, but… More »

Bob Mould Tribute @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA 11/21/2011

If Hüsker Dü or Sugar were before your time, do yourself a favor and dig up their old catalogs. Both venerable bands were fronted by Bob Mould, and an all-star assortment of music luminaries assembled to celebrate the music and legacy of Mould's vast catalog at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Britt Daniel, Ryan Adams,… More »

Watch Foo Fighters’ Westboro Baptist Church Counter-Protest

On August 30, the Westboro Baptist Church, one of the major sources of embarrassment for a native Kansan such as myself (we have the Koch brothers too! Represent!), picketed the Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City, MO for whatever backwards, nebulous, par-for-the-course reason they usually picket stuff. Well, maybe it has something to do with… More »

Wavves – “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl”

Churlish punk pop posterboys Wavves dropped a new pre-VMAs single, "I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl" at virtually the same time as they were complaining about the VMAs themselves. It's a strong, focused, hook-laden effort (despite the fact that these dudes have been all over the map lately) and our first listen to their… More »

Foo Fighters – “Rope” Video

There was a noteworthy amount of discussion around "Rope," the first single from the forthcoming Wasting Light, especially given (or maybe because of) how textbook Foo that self-doubting post-grunge radio rock hook felt. Here's that song's video, featuring Pat Smear because the album does as well, with the black-clad band inside a Battles "Atlas"-reminiscent… More »

Jack White, Dave Grohl Salute Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney received the third Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song yesterday, an award that went to Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder in its previous years. He accepted the award from President Obama, then did a few songs himself (including "Michelle" for Mrs. Obama) and then gave the stage to other performers. According… More »

Bob Mould, Henry Rollins, Dave Grohl Celebrate 9:30 Club’s 30th

On Monday/Memorial Day the 9:30 Club celebrated its 30th Anniversary. For kids who grew up listening to and mythologizing D.C. hardcore, punk, and the like, the place needs no introduction. In case it does, host Henry Rollins did a good job offering background and various old-time Black Flag-related anecdotes. (Of course, old pal/pet store coworker… More »

Them Crooked Vultures, Crisis Of Conformity Play SNL

The supergroup's performance was overshadowed by Crisis Of Conformity, Fred Armisen and Dave Grohl's pitch-perfect hardcore punk spoof. Plus John Paul Jones had the line of the night in an unaired sketch (with ?uesto) about farts. Watch and learn. More »

Stream Them Crooked Vultures

After your dad leaked Them Crooked Vultures' self-titled debut, the band opted to stream the entire collection. It's out officially 11/17 via DGC/Interscope. (Get a load of "Warsaw Or The First Breath You Take After You Give Up.")… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”

It's about time someone had some pun with Thelonius Monk. "Mind Eraser, No Chaser" isn't the first studio single we've heard from rock-demigod triptych Them Crooked Vultures' self-titled debut -- that'd be "New Fang" -- and it isn't the only instance of their titular wordplay (see also: "Interlude With Ludes," "Caligulove"). But it'… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “New Fang”

You don't have to pack into crammed rock clubs/attend huge festivals/scour YouTube for crap-grade performance clips for tastes of the Led Stone Age Fighters supergroup much longer: Them Crooked Vultures have a self-titled debut out next month, and the studio song they want you to hear first is "New Fang."… More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Stubb’s, Austin 10/1/09

They've come a long way: From being just a couple of scrappy upstarts playing a bunch of unreleased material at the Metro this summer, three practically unknown dudes named John Paul Jones, Josh Homme, and Dave Grohl (along with megastar Alain Johannes of course) now have a full US tour plotted, kicking off last… More »

Guitar Hero CEO Says Blame Courtney

Dan Rosensweig insists his company's offer to desecrate Kurt Cobain's legacy was crystal clear and that Dave and Krist should take it up with Nirvana's estate. Jon Bon Jovi's weighed in too. No doubt this will all be cleared up soon via Courtney's Twitter. More »

Courtney, Dave, Krist, Activision Fight Over Guitar Hero’s Controversial Kurt Cartoon

Who to believe, who to believe. As you know, Guitar Hero 5 features a playable Kurt Cobain avatar which you can unlock to have the Nirvana icon cover Bush, stunt like Flavor Flav, and roll over in his grave. Everybody's coming down on Courtney Love for licensing this atrocity, so Courtney Love very calmly… More »
