The 19 Best Summer Television Shows Ever

May 29th, 2014 3:00pm EDT
Mad Men
Summer television has the unfair reputation of being the dumping ground for shows "not ready" for the fall or spring, or where offbeat series never take off or go to die. While shows have certainly been banished to the warmer months, dozens of classic shows either got their start or existed entirely in the summer.

Survivor

Reality TV existed before Survivor, but its success on CBS as a Summer show opened the door to every and any kind of reality TV... for better or worse. It was featured on the cover of TIME magazine and was one of the highest rated shows on television for its first ele...

Popular Songs You Won't Believe Are Actually Covers

Popular Songs You Won't Believe Are Actually Covers
There are some cover songs out there that artists perform so well you forget someone did it first. We bet there’s a least a handful of songs on this list you thought weren't covers.

Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin (Jake Holmes)

This song actually has a pretty nasty past. Jimmy Page heard the song performed by Jake Holmes, who was opening for the Yardbirds while Page was a part of the band. The Yardbirds then bought a record of the song and copied it while adding new music for all of their instruments. While mostly reserved for live shows, it was included on a live album – and was the ...

Review: Johnny Cash, ‘Out Among The Stars’

April 1st, 2014 7:23pm EDT
Johnny Cash - Out Among The Stars
Among the Stars doesn’t supplant Cash’s best, but serves reminder of his legendary status

Usually, the words ‘lost albums’ signal nothing short of a personal sentiment of ‘don’t waste your time’. However, when a legend posthumously releases a lost LP, the tune changes. Johnny Cash has released multiple posthumous albums, most of which that showcases the singer’s gruff vocals in his final years. While these releases have magic (particularly a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” from American IV: The Man Comes Around, which was released while Cash was still alive), they don’t represent the ex...

Beck - Morning Phase
March was a rich month for music releases. After listening and reviewing multiple albums, it is always fun to pick out one big time standout.

An album of long-lost Johnny Cash material is due to be released after the country icon's son discovered tapes of the never-before-heard recordings.

Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet Victims Of 'Best Actress' Oscar Curse? (Video)

The latest news about Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James, allegedly cheating on her and the recent revelation that Kate Winslet is splitting from her husband, director Sam Mendes, leads us to believe that perhaps their recent Best Actress Oscar wins have something to do with it.

There are plenty of celebrities that came from nothing and turned into something. But what makes a hillbilly celeb different is the typically uneducated unsophisticated behavior that everyone enjoys watching.

Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are perfect examples of hillbilly celebs. They are from the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, and before they were mu...
