Hayley Williams Accuses One Direction Of Ripping Off New Found Glory Riff That Rips Off Journey

To the ears of Paramore's Hayley Williams, the opening piano riff on One Direction's new single "Steal My Girl" so smacked of New Found Glory's 2006 single "It's Not Your Fault" that a Twitter dismissal was in order. Williams, who has been dating New Found Glory singer Chad Gilbert since 2008 (that's them together… More »

Watch Eels Cover Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”

Recently, for three random shows, the former Journey frontman Steve Perry resurfaced, singing with Mark Oliver Everett's confessional L.A. chamber-pop group Eels and, for whatever reason, basically briefly joining the band. That meant Eels had to learn all these Journey songs, and there's no reason to let that knowledge go to waste… More »

Steve Perry Is Basically In Eels Now; Watch Them Do Journey’s “Lights” In L.A.

When we talked to E about Steve Perry's surprise performance with Eels in St. Paul, he said he wasn't sure if it would ever happen again: "That's all up to him, you know? You can’t really tell Steve Perry what to do. You just go along for the ride, you know?" Sure enough,… More »

Watch Journey’s Steve Perry Perform With The Eels Again

Apparently Steve Perry really liked returning to the stage last week because he showed up again with the Eels again last night in Washington, DC. He sang the same songs as last time -- the Eels' "It's A Motherfucker" and Journey's "Open Arms" and "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" -- and a cover of Sam Cooke'… More »

Q&A: E Explains Steve Perry’s Surprise Return To The Stage And The Stirring New Eels Album

An Eels concert in St. Paul took a surprising turn earlier this week when former Journey frontman Steve Perry emerged to perform Eels' "It's A Motherfucker" and Journey's "Open Arms" and "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'." That video of Perry's first public performance in 19 years has now gone viral -- over 1 million views i… More »

Watch Journey’s Steve Perry Perform For The First Time In 19 Years, Joining The Eels In St. Paul

Reclusive ex-Journey vocalist Steve Perry hasn't sung in public for almost two decades (unless mouthing the words to "Don't Stop Believin'" at a baseball game counts) but he came out of hiding last night at an Eels concert in St. Paul, Minnesota. He joined the band during their second encore to sing the Eels'… More »

Watch Belle & Sebastian Cover Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” At A Children’s Hospital

You might expect Belle & Sebastian to cover the Kinks or Nick Drake or 10cc. You might not expect them to cover the most-covered Journey song ever. But it's impossible to say no to sick kids, and during a recent visit to Children's Healthcare Of Atlanta for the Songs For Kids Foundation nonprofit, the Scottish… More »

“Don’t Stop Believin'” Turns 30

MTV isn't the only '80s rock relic turning 30. Released 7/31/81 (a day before the network's launch) on Journey's seventh studio album Escape, "Don't Stop Believin'" would inexplicably go on to be one of the biggest songs of the digital era. A life-affirming arena anthem with an indelible keyboard hook, the top ten hit only… More »

Daft Punk – “Tron Legacy”

Last month we watched a new Tron: Legacy trailer, which made good on Olivia Wilde's promise that Daft Punk cameo in the movie as ... robot DJs (duh). It was also a chance to hear "Derezzed" from the electronic duo's film score. Earlier today, BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac debuted "Tron Legacy… More »

Steve Perry Lives, Sings Along To Journey At Giants Game

While YouTube-hero and Steve Perry-soundalike Arnel Pineda does his thing with Journey 2010, Steve Perry himself was busy rousing the hometown San Francisco crowd at AT&T Park during the 10/21 Game 5 of the NLCS. "Don't Stop Believin'" came over the stadium's public address system at the start of the 8th inning and… More »

You Guys, The Ellen Page “Don’t Stop Believin'” Video Is Supposed To Be Terrible

Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat (Maeby), and Har Mar Superstar made this video where they sing off-key to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," and everybody's FREAKING OUT because it's so bad, but don't you guys see: it's SUPPOSED to be bad. Any old shy person can do a lip dub, but to actually try to sing thi… More »

Steve Perry Is Less Of A Dick Than Steve Spielberg

Even though it's really old news, I can't help but remain consistently fascinated by the group of childhood friends who made a shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The film, as you probably know by now, because seriously, this is like back-when-the-internet-was-in-black-and-white era news, took them seven years to make, and you… More »

Marnie Stern Covers “Don’t Stop Believin'”

It's fitting that Perpetua came upon this, since it was his great interview with Marnie that framed its significance: until now, the ruler of the CMJ '08, Ms. Marnie Stern, has never learned someone else's song. And she's broken that bit by covering Journey, which is precisely what you do whe… More »

Journey At The Center Of The Earth

This is easily the best thing Brendan Fraser has ever been involved with, and I'm including Encino Man, buuuuuudy. It's sad that even Brendan Fraser's best thing isn't that good (sorry, Black20, you're great, HUGS). But not that sad. Not sad like Brendan Fraser's thinking he can hide the fact that he's balding sad. More »

GQ Writes An Epic Tale About The Dickensian Life Of Journey’s New Lead Singer

We're not exaggerating. Journey's still going strong with Arnel Pineda, the guy they found on YouTube to play the part of Steve Perry. We saw the live footage and Pineda sounded like Perry, though he smiles more. We still can't believe the guy's almost 41 years old, but that, among other things, are… More »

Journey Plays First Show With New Singer They Found On YouTube

You may remember when we wrote about Arnel Pineda, the guy in the Philippines who'd been fronting a Journey-covering band called the Zoo for years, posted some videos showing his great voice on YouTube, and was subsequently discovered by Journey guitarist Neal Schon. We were impressed with his vocal chops in that little… More »

Cheapest Audition Ever: Journey Searches YouTube, Finds New Lead Singer

Meet the Philippines' Arnel Pineda (that's "pin-eh-da"), the most recent man responsible for encouraging those wonderful YouTubes of nobodys covering somebodys we all love so. Journey's needed a lead singer, and guitarist Neal Schon told Blabbermouth:I was frustrated about not having a singer, so I went on YouTube for a couple of days and… More »

Score The Sopranos Finale With Any MP3

We know you're sick of a lot of things right now, maybe none more than the finale of the Sopranos, but we have to do this. What started as an e-mail chain about indie anthems that would have been superior to "Don't Stop Believin'" turned into some slapdash nerdery, building a script for testing… More »
