Blink 182 At The Red Bull Soundstage Concert Review And Encore (Video)

November 8th, 2013 1:48pm EST
Blink 182
“It’s way too early to play rock music,” Mark Hoppus announced to the amped up crowd. It was 11:45 a.m. on a Thursday and for most bands it’s far too early in the day to be awake let alone play a six song set. But for Blink 182, comprised of Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker, and their dedicated fans at the KROQ Red Bull Soundstage, it was the perfect time.

The Red Bull Soundstage is a small room only fit for a few hundred people, allowing for an intimate musical atmosphere that most fans will never get the experience. Ever since the dinky office space was transformed into a rocking s...

15 Stars Who Got Naked In Music Videos

October 22nd, 2013 8:00pm EDT
Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus took it all off for her "Wrecking Ball" video, swinging nude -- save for a pair of work boots -- on the title object. She received plenty of flak for the racy video, most likely because of her age and the fact that she's a role model for millions of young girls.

But she's definitely not the first to bare all in a music short, plenty of other artists have either gone nude or had a model, a girlfriend -- even a model girlfriend -- strip down for one of their videos.

See who else shed their clothes in the name of art after the jump...

Aaron Gillespie Of The Almost Talks 'Monster Monster'

November 3rd, 2009 10:00am EST
The Almost
The Almost are back with "Monster Monster", the follow-up to their hit 2007 album, "Southern Weather".

But this time around Gillespie has a band of warrior musicians around him and they worked in collaboration to make the new disc.

Monster is a terrific - fun filled pop record that is reminiscent to the Blink-182 and Sugar Ray-fun sound of the late 90s - except The Almost appe...
