7 Albums to Check Out: This Week in Music
After an extremely quiet week of new releases last week (July 8), This week, July 15, has more ‘weapons’ in its arsenal.

The Twitter accounts of No Doubt and punk act Rise Against have been hacked by fans of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Just two weeks after both Kelly Clarkson and Michelle Branch offered the politician their backing, his supporters have found a new way of linking their man with cool pop and rock stars.

Both bands quickly pulled down tweets endorsing Paul.

One read: "If you actually read what Ron Paul is saying, you will discover that for the first time in your life a politician is not lying to you."

Rise Against fired back with the post, "We were hacked. As you would all as...

Review: Rise Against - 'Endgame' (DGC/Interscope)

3/15/2011 4:19pm EDT
With 2008’s Appeal to Reason Rise Against tossed their collective hat into the ring of mainstream success and viability, and after one spin of the band’s latest, Endgame, it appears there is no turning back. Now, that’s no to say that Rise Against had to set out to reinvent the wheel in terms of sound, but it’s just that, they didn’t do anything new with this record – they didn’t take any chances. No, the band didn’t have to revolutionize themselves just to be fashionable as seems to be the trend nowadays (yes, Linkin Park, looking at you here), but any release that showed some balls...
