Holy Crap, That's A Lot Of New Music!
Holy Sh!t, there's a ton of new music out today and it covers one of the broadest spectrums of Rock & Metal I've ever seen. I know I've said that before but consider….
 
Lullaby Renditions of Nickelback! I've told you guys about this before. Tool, Metallica, etc, whittled down to lullaby's for the little guy & gal in your life!
 
BAD RELIGION's "Christmas Songs". All your favorite tunes for the holidays; "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing", "O Come All Ye Faithful", "Little Drummer Boy" and more. And yes, you see that correctly, it's done by BAD RELIGION
 
ED KOWALCZYK of LIVE has a solo album out today "The Flood And The Mercy".
 
Couple of "Best Of's" are out today; SEETHER & BUCKCHERRY plus a remix album from LINKIN PARK “Recharged" which includes remixes of songs from their fifth studio album "Living Things".
 
Rockfest alums EYE EMPIRE put out their second studio album today in "Evolve".
 
On the more metal side of things we see WARBRINGER dropping "IV - Empires Collapse", SEPULTURA putting out "Mediator Between Head & Hands Must Be The Heart", and TESTAMENTS two CD + DVD recording documenting their sold-out headlining show at the Paramount in Huntington, NY! PROTEST THE HERO is back with their fourth studio album in "Volition" and Disney-baned SKELETONWITCH are back with their latest offereing, "Serpents Unleased"! 
 
I'd be remised if I didn't mention KILL DEVIL HILL's sophomore album, dropping today, with "Revolution Rise" and THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT with "Retinal Circus" which is two CD's & two DVD's of a live performance Townsend gave for a special one-night-only concert celebrating & covering his 20 year musical career which he filmed in London in October of last year.
 
And finally, THE RAMONES “The Sire Years: 1976 – 1981” A Remix of the band’s first six albums!

Old School New Music Tuesday!!
It seems like everyone kicking new stuff out today is a throwback to the 80's and before!!

**Of course there's MOTORHEAD'S new disc "Aftershock" out today. As mentioned before, LEMMY says he's good and over being sick. Hopefully we'll see a tour!! 

**That sexy old school vixen known as LITA FORD is back today with an album that personifies her return, "The Bitch is Back...Live"! From THE RUNAWAYS to her solo career she's certainly a princess of rock-n-roll!! The disc was recorded at the Canyon Club in Agoura, CA!

**Kicking out their 10th studio album is METAL CHURCH with "Generation Nothing". 

**The Product Description says it all for "Live at the Greek" - "In the Summer and Fall of 1999, one of the best live rock 'n' roll bands and rock's greatest guitarist united for a tour across the States, performing the best songs from the band that virtually invented Rock! Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page joined Chris and Rich Robinson and the rest of The Black Crowes to perform ''Whole Lotta Love,'' ''Heartbreaker,'' ''What Is and What Should Never Be,' ''Hey Hey What Can I Do'' and many more Zep favorites. The band also ripped into blues classics like ''Mellow Down Easy,'' ''Woke Up This Morning,'' the Yardbirds' classic ''Shapes of Things'' and the early Fleetwood Mac number ''Oh Well.'' Now, over a decade later from the original release, this classic collaboration is available for the first time on vinyl. Spanning three discs on white vinyl, ''Live at the Greek'' is a sterling recording of a legendary concert on the nights of October 18 and 19, 1999. This classic live collaboration is available for the first time on a Triple LP set pressed on white vinyl." Yeah... that sounds absolutely sick!! 

**And how about this?! "Thriller: A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson". With appearences by CHUCK BILLY, CHRIS JERICHO of Fozzy, COREY GLOVER of Living Colour, LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST, BUMBLEFOOT & more! 

Here's what I've got coming up, as always, what am I missing?

NEW MUSIC TUES!!
And what a day it is for all sorts of new sh*t!, and covering the wide spectrums of Rock-n-F*ckin-Roll!!

**Seattle-Grunge-Gods - Can we call them that? - PEARL JAM are back with their 10th studio album, "Lightning Bolt". As of now, no stops planned for KC on their current run. Perhaps when they're back from New Zealand in 2014!

**Speaking of old school gods, MONSTER MAGNET is back with a spaced-out-trippy-disc in "Last Patrol". I've listened to this, as it's been streaming online for a bit, and I absolutely love it! Sounds very much like children of PINK FLOYD! 

**DAVE DRAIMAN produced TRIVIUM came out today with "Vengeance Falls". If you recall the lads murdered it at last years ROCKFEST. Does that mean we'll, hopefully, see them in 2014? Only time will tell!! 

**The guys and gal of HALESTORM have dropped another Covers EP on us with "REAniMate 2.0" where they drop everything from MANSON, to JUDAS PRIEST, PAT BENATAR & DAFT PUNK!

**DEATH ANGEL's back with "Dream Calls For Blood" and SOILWORK's got a Deluxe Reissue out with "A Predator's Portrait" and MESHUGGAH are releasing what looks to be an entire cataloge of work today!  

**AND finally, it's not out till next week but MOTORHEAD's "Aftershock" is streaming online and you can listen via widget here:

Hump Day




We've heard quite a few commercials the last few days from Show-Me Cannabis.







What's your take on the legalization of it aka Weed, Dope, Pot, Sticky Icky, Nature's Prozac, Reefer, Mary Jane, Wacky Tabacky, Cheeba, Ganja, Grass?

THE RESULTS WERE UNANIMOUS!

LEGALIZE IT!

It's that time, New Music Tuesday!!
Yeah buddy!! Three BIG (and you know its big cause it's in all capitals) albums dropped today!

**KORN's "The Paradigm Shift" - their first album with BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror", it's also their 11th studio album! 

**ALTER BRIDGE is back with their 4th studio album in "Fortress". If it's anything like their first single, "Addicted to Pain" expect a full on rock-n-roll assault!

**STONE TEMPLE PILOTS with CHESTER BENNINGTON drop their first, of what's assumed to be many, discs with the EP "High Rise". These guys will be in town at the VooDoo Lounge in December. 

**CBGB:Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out today! Course the new flick chronicalling the life and times of the now defunct CBGB's will be out in three days but you can score the soundtrack now to get yourself all prepped and punked up! 

Here's what's coming down the wire over the next few weeks and months.
