Queen's rock anthem "We Are The Champions" has been named the catchiest song of all time in a new scientific survey.

Review: Sum 41 - 'Screaming Bloody Murder' (Island)

March 30th, 2011 8:10pm EDT
Sum 41
Uttering Sum 41 and maturity in the same breath has long been a foregone oxymoron, and the band has done all they can to stay away from that inexplicable tag through the trademark adolescent pomp and circumstance usually apparent throughout their music. The band’s latest long player, Screaming Bloody Murder, is the closest the band has come to the dreaded “A” word, and it doesn’t take long into Screaming Bloody Murder to notice the inclination towards adulthood – 2:45 into opener “Reason to Believe” to be precise.

This year I thought I was ready. I had a full schedule and a list of preferred bands written out, and Warped still managed to swerve me, effectively tossing a monkey wrench into the works of my day as it were. The ever-rotating merry-go-round of performance times and stages that is the Warped Tour, Punk Rock venerable Summer Camp, was able to dupe me for another year, because you see, three of the bands I wanted to see the most, Reel Big Fish, All-American Rejects and Motion City Soundtrack, play VERY early on in the day, much to my dismay honestly. I had both bands near the end of the day ...

5 Shows MTV Needs To Bring Back

It has been made very clear that MTV has lost touch with the M in their acronym. There are far more reality shows on the music network than there are music. Music videos are rarely played, unless of course, you count the short snippets of music videos that play in a small window on your television screen as the credits roll past on a re-run of a reality show that has played for the second time in the same day.

The music authority caught flak in October for their Hottest MCs in the Game list that left out rapper Eminem from its top 10. Most said that MTV lost credibility for the aforement...
