Linkin Park: 'Songs from the Underground'

1/9/2009 11:00am EST
Linkin Park
Linkin Park is a band that just keeps on giving. Having just released their second live CD/DVD 'Road to Revolution,' a few weeks prior, the band deemed it necessary to drop another record for their fans, this time an eight song collection from their LP Underground fan club, entitled 'Songs From the Underground.'

They might be some time away from releasing their fourth full length studio album, but 'Songs from the Underground' more than suffices as filler for the fans in the meantime.

Granted, it may not be a proper Linkin Park album release, but it surely is one of their best col...

How Will We Categorize Our Current Decade of Music?

7/24/2008 8:45am EDT
50 Cent
We all know that the 70s was the decade of classic/arena rock, the 80s was the decade of hair metal/synth pop and the 90s was the decade of grunge/alternative rock. This brings up a question that a lot of music lovers must wonder: how will we categorize our current decade of music?

It's funny how music tends to change every generation. The 70s was the era of classic rock where groups such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and Lynyrd Skynyrd took over the entire music scene. Next up was the 80s, where both hair metal rockers such as Guns 'N Roses, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi reigned, along with ...
