WARNING : PROFANITY

"Alright, listen up, you f**king a**holes. That f**king girl right there is, like, 15 f**king years old and you f**king pieces of sh*t are molesting her while she's on the f**king crowd. Your f**king mothers should be as...

Staind Documentary Was Painful To Make

October 15th, 2011 2:33pm EDT
Staind
Rockers Staind documented the making of their latest album on film because they knew the recording sessions would make for great drama.

The band almost broke up during the tense recording process and drummer Jon Wysocki quit - but frontman Aaron Lewis admits he's glad they captured it all on film, even if parts are "painful" for him to watch.

He says, "It's kinda like (Metallica documentary) Some Kind of Monster on steroids... When I see it, I realise how much of a perfectionist I can be in the studio. If I hear something a certain way, I push and push and push until it comes out that way...

CD Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Movie Soundtrack

July 13th, 2011 4:12pm EDT
Transformers
The Transformers movie soundtrack has become as ballyhooed as its big screen counterpart through the years, and the latest, and perhaps final, installment of said sonic accompaniment is no different, living up to the hype with each passing track. This time around on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack, some of the faces are the same, but as with its two predecessors, this compilation does not disappoint at any turn.

Speaking of familiar faces, Linkin Park returns to the Transformers soundtrack, anchoring the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack with “Iridescent,” off their 2...

Originally, Parker had no plans to record the number, but when his band mates heard it, they convinced him to track it with them. After a few hours in the studio, Deaf Pedestrians emerged with an undeniable cut that's catchy, funny, spirited and endearingly wi...
