Liam Gallagher Has Some Thoughts About Kanye, Too

Noel and Liam Gallagher, brothers and former Oasis bandmates, are completely estranged, and they don’t see eye-to-eye on very much.

Liam Gallagher Is Singing Oasis Again

Beady Eye’s debut album was pretty good, but let’s face it: It’s no Definitely Maybe. Maybe Liam Gallagher has come to believe this truth, too, because after initially vowing not to play Oasis songs with Beady Eye, the new band is dipping into the old band’s catalog.

The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn’t like each other, they’d deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment.

10 Possible Monday Night Football Replacements For Hank Williams, Jr.

As you may have heard, country music lifer Hank Williams, Jr. has parted ways with Monday Night Football, the TV show he spent 20 years singing the intro for, just because he made a totally calm and reasonable parallel between Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler.

While We Were Out

… and then it was 2011. Hopefully your New Year’s celebration involved doing something more celebratory than being berated by a solo Ariel Pink from a makeshift stage in a Bushwick warehouse, and hopefully you are back on the internet with a lot of hard drive space and some well rested ears: There was a… More »
