BottleRock 2014 Saturday: OutKast And Weezer Deliver The Hits, No Age Open For Smash Mouth

Every now and then, it’s good to reorient your perspective. At any given more established or mainstream festival stocked with your usual indie mainstays, No Age wouldn’t come across as too out there or jarring, but between BottleRock’s semi-bucolic surroundings, laidback tone and pace, and generally more rustic or easygoing lineup (the band was playing… More »

Watch Seahawks Fans Chris Cornell, Macklemore, Ann Wilson Get Psyched For The Super Bowl

As you might have heard, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will square off in the Super Bowl this Sunday at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. Bruno Mars and RHCP will be there, (probably) not performing “Abracadabralifornia” at halftime. They aren’t the only rock stars who’ll be in the house: Ezra Koenig said he’s going,… More »

Watch The Dismemberment Plan Cover Heart’s “Barracuda”

Their new album Uncanney Valley may not be the return to form that many of us were hoping for, but reunited D.C. postpunk greats the Dismemberment Plan remain one of the great live bands in the indie rock universe, and a ridiculously tight and versatile group of musicians. (Back in the day, they were the… More »

Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2013 Inductees: Rush, Public Enemy, Heart

As we all know, there’s nothing more relevant than the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. How else would we remember and recognize the greatness of bands like Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and the Clash if not for such an institution? And what better captures rock and roll’s spirit of youthful defiance than the HardMore »

The Decemberists Cover Heart

We’ve seen live videos of the Decemberists doing Decemberists tunes everywhere from The Colbert Report to The Tonight Show (Leno version) lately, but those professional clips don’t contain half the thrill of this fan-captured-yet-still-electrifying cover of Heart’s “Crazy On You.” The ladies Diamond (My Brightest and Lavender) are cast as the Sisters Wilson and hopefully… More »

Genesis Get Honored, Perform First Show In 15 Years

Saturday night in Vegas, the VH1 Rock Honors paid tribute to Ozzy Osbourne, Heart, ZZ Top, and of course our beloved Genesis. The night was notable for its choice of host (Bam Margera? Keeping it classy), but even more significant for its playing host to the first Phil Collins-led Genesis set in a decade and… More »

Nickelback Cover Genesis

… just kidding. Probably. Genesis, ZZ Top, Heart, and Ozzy Osbourne are the artists that will be celebrated at this year’s VH1 Rock Honors, to be held at Vegas’s Mandalay Bay. Gretchen Wilson, Keane, and Nickelback are the bands named so far for cover-salute duty. We’re guessing Keane will pay tribute to our favorite prog-popper… More »

Blitzen Trapper Cover Heart

Another cover for your dreary Friday. This one comes from the sonic alchemists of Blitzen Trapper, who generally enjoy taking country conceit and twisting its corners with whatever accoutrements they can kick up, be it an errant synth line or a flat EQ’d drum fill. So it shouldn’t be surprising that they make Heart’s “Crazy… More »
