In a move that will finally target the elusive demographic of beer drinkers who love classic rock and modern hip-hop, Budweiser has announced plans to debut a new commercial during the Super Bowl that mashes up the Cult‘s ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ with the recent Flo Rida hit ‘Good Feelin’.’
By now, pretty much everybody knows that Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson moonlights as an airplane pilot when he isn’t fronting the band, but he’s never been known for his sea voyages — until recently, when a British submarine crew was surprised to learn that Dickinson had joined them for a three-day trip.
Nearly a quarter of a century after they staged their fan favorite ‘Live at the Ritz’ concert, Guns N’ Roses are set to return to the renowned New York City theater as part of a six-date jaunt through the Northeast that will also take them into Maryland, New Jersey, and Illinois.
For nearly 40 years now, AC/DC have remained a proud bastion of good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll regardless of changing trends — so it only stands to reason that in 2012, long after the pinball industry’s glorious heyday, the legendary rockers are teaming up with Stern Pinball to create their own game.
They warned you it was coming, and now Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan have unleashed their moviemaking debut on the world. Titled ‘Thy Shalt I,’ the 15-minute short film debuted at Sundance last weekend, and it serves as the opening salvo in the duo’s plans for their new film and television production company Living Breathing Films.
Given his well-known penchant for showing up late — not to mention his knack for inciting the occasional riot — you’d think most lawyers would blanch at the prospect of W. Axl Rose serving on a trial jury. But that didn’t keep the Guns N’ Roses singer from doing his civic duty when his number was called for a recent civil trial in Santa Monica, Calif.
Four years after their acrimonious split, the members of Velvet Revolver reunited with lead singer Scott Weiland for a brief live set last night (Jan. 12) — and now a message on the band’s website is causing some to question whether Weiland could be back in the fold on a more permanent basis.
Just days after they announced the cities for their upcoming tour of what they’re calling “classic theatres,” Jane’s Addiction have revealed the dates — and they’ve also lined up a sweet high-profile gig at Volkswagen’s pre-Super Bowl Rock & Roll Fan Tailgate Party on Feb. 5, where they’ll be appearing with the Roots and DJ Pete Wentz.
With a new album, ‘The Great Escape Artist,’ out for a few months and their latest single, ‘Underground,’ buzzing at radio, Jane’s Addiction are ready to return to the road for their first dates of 2012 — and this time, one of rock’s most theatrical acts is adding a suitably theatrical twist: the band will be stopping at “classic theatres” during a run of dates that will see them playing intimate venues across the country.
This month will be a big one for Van Halen fans, as the band is expected to debut the leadoff single from its long-awaited new album and start selling tickets for its 2012 world tour. But for a few lucky spectators at New York’s Cafe Wha?, the fun will begin this Thursday (Jan. 5), when the band takes the small club’s stage for what’s rumored to be a 45-minute, invitation-only warm-up set.
Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst promised fans that he’d have “huge news” about the band this month, and just in the nick of time, he’s lived up to his word: According to an announcement released today, he and his bandmates will be entering 2012 ready to continue their “true rock and roll journey” without a record label.
New Year’s resolutions: Most people don’t live up to them, but everyone makes ‘em — even your favorite hard rockers. How do we know? Thanks to the good people at Noisecreep, who asked a long list of rock’s heaviest hitters to share their plans for 2012, including Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, Skillet vocalist John Cooper and Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack.
