Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction are calling their new working relatinship NINJA. Clever.

You Don’t Win Friends With Timbaland Salad, Chris Cornell

It’ll be news to nobody when I say this, but I’ll say it anyway: Chris Cornell’s Scream is horrible. There are plenty of albums released in a year that aren’t so hot, but this goes beyond that to something wrong on so many levels. To put it in an aging rocker context: It makes ChineseMore »

Remember those photos of Trent Reznor in the studio with Jane’s Addiction? Well, turns out Reznor’s taking the guys with him on NIN’s last US tour. What?!

An article about musicians protesting the use of their tunes to torture prisoners begins with “March Of The Pigs” “blaring from a speaker behind a metal grate” at the U.S. Military detention center in Iraq where it “hit Prisoner No. 200343 like a sonic bludgeon.” This would reportedly continue for “days, then weeks, then months.”… More »

Reznor Vs. Radiohead

Or, Reznor Vs. In Rainbows, if you will. As you all know, they’ve both found success experimenting with album price points in a big way, and debuting music online.
