Billy Corgan Starts A Feud With Pavement

November 16th, 2010 3:30pm EST
Billy Corgan
Smashing Pumpkins star Billy Corgan has stirred up a new indie rock feud after lashing out at the members of reunited Pavement for refusing to record new music.

The two bands will be sharing the bill at the upcoming Planeta Terra Festival in Brazil - and the Pumpkins leader is far from happy.

In a tweet to fans, the outspoken singer/songwriter writes, "Just found out SP is playing with Pavement in Brazil. It's gonna be 1 of those New Orleans type funerals... I say that because they represent the death of the alternative dream, and we follow with the affirmation of life part...

The Best Songs About Girls From A To Z, Part 2

February 1st, 2008 1:49pm EST
David Bowie
Here's part two of the best songs about girls with every letter of the alphabet, regardless of whether or not the subject of the song is the same as the title. There were two considerations in making the list: How good the song is versus how cool the chick sounds. See A to M here, and check out N to Z:

Frank Zappa - Trance-Fusion
When Frank Zappa died in 1993, he had spent much of his remaining time and energy completing a number of projects before the end finally came. Why the majority of them are still unreleased as of late 2006 is anybody's guess, but perhaps the long awaited release of Trance-Fusion is a good sig...
