By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 18, 2015 - 11:15 am

Hangout Fest went down this past weekend, and if you didn’t have the distinct privilege of attending, then you could have taken up some more time in front of the computer watching the livestream. I’ve never been to Hangout, but from what I can gauge, it seems pretty stress-free as far as festivals go. Musicia… More »

Watch Duff McKagan & Krist Novoselic Play “Sweet Child O’ Mine” Together

By Tom Breihan / May 18, 2015 - 10:34 am

Nirvana and Guns N’ Roses famously didn’t like each other, mostly owing to a backstage spat between Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain at the 1992 VMAs. But Duff McKagan and Krist Novoselic were never going to keep that feud going; they’ve got too much in common. They’re both bass players, both relatively mellow and level-headed… More »

By Tom Breihan / May 18, 2015 - 10:02 am

924 Gilman, the volunteer-run Berkeley punk venue, is where Green Day got their start. It’s also a famously puritanical zone; bands get banned for playing there for just about every imaginable reason. Green Day have been banned from 924 Gilman ever since they signed to a major label in the early ’90s, but the venue… More »

Taylor Swift – “Bad Blood (Remix Feat. Kendrick Lamar)” Video

By James Rettig / May 17, 2015 - 8:17 pm

Taylor Swift built the “Bad Blood” video to be a massive spectacle. On 5/7, she sent out the first poster featuring a character from it, and from then on it was hard to escape the onslaught of big names as we creeped closer to the video’s debut. Each was met with a flurry of fanfare… More »

Girlpool – “Before The World Was Big” Video

By Caitlin White / May 17, 2015 - 3:22 pm

The first post I ever did for Stereogum was a Girlpool video — the “Chinatown” one back in January — so their wonderfully swift rise over the past few months always gives me a twinge of pride, like we’re in this together. Regardless, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad are one the best things to happe… More »

Watch Rihanna’s Moving Saturday Night Live Performance

By James Rettig / May 17, 2015 - 11:05 am

Rihanna was the musical guest on the season finale of Saturday Night Live last night. Disappointingly, she didn’t appear in any sketches alongside Louis C.K., which I think would have been a lot of fun, but she did give two very good performances that made up for it. She had a little fun for “Bitch… More »

By Tom Breihan / May 16, 2015 - 7:02 am

Killer Mike should never stop rapping. He’s the best at it. But if Killer Mike ever does stop rapping, he should immediately join the pundit industry, since he’s already doing that job better than just about anyone else. Last night, Killer Kill from the Ville made his first-ever appearance as a panelist on HBO’s RealMore »
