    1. Alice in Chains Plaintive, emotive, and occasionally mournful, Alice in Chains pioneered a melodic, intoxicating sound. Quite simply, their moodiness was mesmerizing. Their songs not only dealt with themes of heartbreak and loss, but also tackled big picture issues like war and conformity. As far as rock bands in the 90s go, these legends are the undisputed, often underappreciated, masters of the form. Check out their 1994 epic Jar of Flies.

    A hardcore metal band in Nashville, Tennessee has gone viral for ditching their lead singer from the band for attempting to ‘force a transition’ on his bandmate. A post on X sharing the band’s Instagram Story post has over 10 million views and over 100,000 likes. Relatively unknown band Llorona shared the story on its Instagram page, which has since been deleted. The post claimed that a bandmember named ‘Diego’ tried to ‘force a transition’ on his friend, who is later named as ‘Sixx,’ by giving him powdered protein supplements laced with the female hormone.

    One of the great double-sided hits of the era paired ‘Long Tall Sally’ with ‘Slippin’ and Slidin.’’Little Richard burst onto the emerging rock‘n’roll scene in the new year of 1956 with “Tutti-Frutti,” the American Top 20 hit that lit the fuse for an explosive follow-up. One of the great double-sided hits of the era, “Long Tall Sally,” backed with “Slippin’ and Slidin’ (Peepin’ and Hidin’),” was released on February 27 that year. Like its predecessor, the Specialty 45 would end up in both the Grammy and Rock & Roll Halls Of Fame, and help spread the word about the unique...

    Queen Online ^ | 2/27/2024
    ....When their eleventh studio album The Works - produced by Queen and Mack - was released in the UK on February 27th, 1984, fans and critics alike hailed it as Queen's return to their rock roots and to the traditional Queen sound absent from the previous album. Record Mirror described it as ‘Another jewel in the crown’. For the first time the band started the new recordings in Los Angeles in August 1983 and finished at Musicland studios in Germany early the following year. The album cover was conceived by Queen and features an image from a photographic session with...

    Below is my column in The Hill on the trouble brewing at CBS over the seizure of the files of acclaimed investigative reporter Catherine Herridge. The column broke the story on the uproar over not just her being laid off but her being locked out from her files. I am now hearing from CBS sources that the network is moving toward a resolution to turn over the files after the outcry. However, the concerns over Herridge’s firing and the network’s handling of her confidential notes continues to draw fire from journalists and commentators. The union issued a statement (below) after...

    The Hill ^ | 02/19/2024 | LAUREN SFORZA
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) “dream blunt rotation” consists only of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, according to a recent interview. “Pod Save America” host Jon Favreau asked the Massachusetts Democrat to choose four people out of a list he provided to join her in a “dream blunt rotation,” which he defined as “a group of people you’d hypothetically like to smoke weed with because they’d be a really fun time.” “All I’m really telling you, this has nothing to do with weed,” Warren jokingly responded. “It’s who you think is fun … these are people you’d go get pedicures with, this...

    A Brooklyn man was arrested on hate crime charges nearly two months after he allegedly hurled a rock at a Jewish man and snarled, “Free Palestine,” cops said. Mohamed Habachi, 23, was cuffed Tuesday morning in connection to the unprovoked Nov. 22 attack on a 47-year-old dad of six — and slapped with multiple charges including assault and menacing, both as hate crimes, authorities said Wednesday. The victim — who asked The Post to only identify him by his first name, Shloimy — was leaving his real estate job around 6:30 p.m. and heading to his car when cops said...

    The reason For My faith ^ | 6/3/22 | Chuck Ness
    Until now I have not shared my opinion of what I think of the many inherent ways the Catholic Church has misinterpreted Scripture throughout the years. I can no longer be silent on the subject, because it is one that the Catholic Church has used to teach heresy.To begin with, the Catholic Church has been making a mockery of Scripture for many years. There are many beliefs the Catholic Church holds that I have problems with, but for now I will explain why they are wrong in their interpretation that Peter is the rock upon which Christ has built...

What is that all about? Who are they? These are the metalheads. What is their psychology? We are going to look at the social psychology of heavy metal and rock music fans. In this article, I’ll review the scientific research done on their personality, their behavior, why they do what they do, what they get out it, etc. The effects of heavy metal music can...

    Kix will play their final show this month — and according to vocalist Steve Whiteman, not a moment too soon. The Maryland rockers are set to end a 45-year career with a Sept. 17 hometown gig at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia. "I don't want to go out sucking — I want to go out being pretty good," Whiteman said on a recent episode of SiriusXM's Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk (via Blabbermouth). "But age takes its toll," he added, citing drummer Jimmy Chalfant's 2021 heart attack and subsequent onstage collapse last November as contributing factors. The vocalist also...

    Rock music has always been about tweaking the establishment. From the early rock & roll days, musicians have specialized in sticking it to the man. That’s all well and good when the man is a buttoned-down square with traditional values, but when the woke becomes the establishment — you kids had better turn that music off. We’ve already seen the left go after authors, films, and TV shows, but that’s not all. Now wokescolds are going after classic rock music. It all started when Universal Records added Queen’s “Greatest Hits” album to the library for Yoto, a new entertainment platform...

    A study in the journal Earth and Planetary Science has questioned the origin of a Moon rock sample collected during a 1971 NASA Moon landing. The startling study published this week has found the Moon rock’s chemical composition is much closer to Earth rock than it is to Moon rock. Researchers have found traces of quartz in the Moon rock – a mineral typically not found on the Moon. The Moon rock sample in question was collected by NASA’s Apollo 14 mission, which saw astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell land on the Moon.The rock was then loaned by NASA...
