Caught this the other day and DAMN is it good!! Make certain it's sped up to 1.25. For some reason the speed was reduced upon its uploading. There's no way to top what the ROLLING STONES did but MOTORHEAD does a damn good job!
AMY SCHUMER will be part of the ODDBALL FESTIVAL tomorrow and she was today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy.
Gotta hand it to these porn stars, they can really take the mean Tweets lobbed their way!!
The number one rule of squirrel fight club is you don't talk about squirrel fight club! MOOSE regaled me with a tale of witnessing a squirrel fight recently, which prompted me to look up "Squirrel Fights" on YouTube. Hilarity ensued!
Look! You guys all know I'm a fan of DAVID ERIC GROHL aka DAVE GROHL but I fear we're starting to get into that over saturation place again. Right where we were when he fell of the stage and broke his leg. Yes, he and the rest of the FOO FIGHTERS "Rick Rolled" them. And it was great! Not as good as the "Keep It Clean" trolling but solid none-the-less. Yes, he stated that they play long ass shows and these younger bands need to step up their game! *News Alert - same shit was said four years ago! But now there's a "News report" that he chugged a beer on stage with a guy who turned 50 ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............... What happened? Oh, I fell asleep typing this because... well... just give it a rest. Let the Foo do what the Foo do in concert and leave it there. In that magical place where those that experienced it can hold onto those memories and not have those images forced upon us because of smart phones.
(Stepping down off soap box)
JEFF ROSS was today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy. He's another comedian we'll see Friday for the Oddball Comedy Festival!
Happy National Dog Day!! Here's the loveable lads from PSYCHOSTICK and their ode to dogs, "Dogs Like Socks"!
Greetings & Salutations to everyone in the blog world! Who saw the FOO FIGHTERS Friday night at the Sprint Center? Even with the broken leg and seated 90% of the show DAVE GROHL kicked some serious ass!! Made props as well to everyone else in the band who absolutely destroyed it. One of the best shows I've seen. Can the Foo do any wrong?
I was so incredibly wrapped up in the show Friday I forgot to post up the new jams that came out on Friday, though they're all listed in the Weekly Rock Wind Up!

Today I played Mr. TJ MILLER for today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy! In this possibly NSFW bit he talks about passing out and having dicks drawn on his face!
The time is early 70's and a cheeky little band from Australia is getting some attention, AC/DC. Their short lived initial frontman, DAVE EVANS, is planning on writing an autobio of the whole experience. Here's what they sounded like!
I posted up the lyric video for new ESCAPE THE FATE the other day. Here's their new official video for the same track, "Just A Memory".
Here's today's 4:20 Smoke Break, again, from KEVIN HART who's gonna be at the Sprint Center on Saturday!
Crazy to think KEVIN HART is so big he's gonna done TWO shows at the SPRINT CENTER but that is the truth!! Here's his NSFW bit from today!!!
ICYMI - CHRIS CORNELL (SOUNDGARDEN, AUDIOSLAVE, TEMPLE OF THE DOG) has a new solo disc coming out in September, "Higher Truth", and he rolled out a new single last week, "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart". Here's the lyric video for it. Thoughts?
A new documentary is coming out September 25th, MISSION TO LARS. I'm not gonna lie, the trailer below gave me all the feels I didn't expect. I suspect it's gonna be a tear jerker for some, probably me included.
COMEDY CENTRAL rolled out a new promo video for their new host who takes over for JON STEWART for THE DAILY SHOW on September 28th, TREVOR NOAH. It's exactly what you'd expect from those guys and given his great stand up bits I think he'll be a solid replacement. He's incredibly well rounded & intelligent boasting a knowledge of eight languages he learned growing up in South Africa. It'll be interesting to see how he handles the spotlight and judging by today's 4:20 Smoke Break, he'll be just fine!
Here's the promo video
And here's today's 4:20 stand up comedy routine, "Attention All Passengers".
ROCKFEST 2014 alums ESCAPE THE FATE dropped a new track today "Just A Memory" from their forthcoming album "Hate Me" which will be out on October the 30th! First listen surprised me with how aggressive it is. Feeling more AVENGED SEVENFOLD than I anticipated. What's your thoughts on it?
After teasing us with a promo video it seems RAMMSTEIN is looking to put out a live DVD in September on the 25th; "Rammstein in Amerika". It'll be a double disc, one part documentary and one part their performance at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH manager ALLEN KOVAC issued a statement today in regards to recent allegations against Five Finger frontman IVAN MOODY,
"Holly Smith has made claims of domestic violence that were dismissed on July 14th, 2015. She has also claimed that she was married to Ivan Moody, which Ivan denies. A search of county clerk records in the location she claims to have gotten married showed no marriage certificate. Ms. Smith has also made statements alleging that Moody is the father of her child which has also been shown to be untrue.
"We look forward to proving that there are no grounds for divorce in this case and that Ms. Smith is not a credible source of information. Nobody in Five Finger Death Punch condones domestic violence or abuse of any kind. The media attention is rife with false allegations and we hope that the media will start to follow the facts so that Ivan can move on.
"Given the shameless attempt to become a media star with these false allegations, I think Five Finger Death Punch can take this 15 minutes of fame and use the situation to promote their sixth album ("Got Your Six", due out September 4) and U.S. tour (with PAPA ROACH, also starting on September 4) as well. Early projections show the album looks to debut at #1 — we want to thank Ms. Smith and TMZ for all their help!"
A new IRON MAIDEN track dropped today and it's already got over 600K views!! New double disc album will drop in September on the 4th titled "The Book of Souls".
Four years! I did the math, it's 1461 days since I first took out my lady. We went to Garozzo's in Columbus Park then caught a wonderful B Movie of epic gore porness, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN! After the flick a nightcap in Westport then down to the Foundation at 18th and Vine. We listened to music and laughed till at least five in the morning! And I can emphatically state I am as happy, if not happier, today as I was then! I love you my sweet Alexandra, here's to many more years!!
Props to my boy Jason Turner for this pic!
Today's 4:20 Smoke Break was brought to us by KEVIN SHEA!
Good stuff here!!
Another new TRIVIUM track dropped today, "Blind Leading The Blind". Look for the new album, "Silence the Snow", October 2nd.
Rather disappointing, if the allegations are true, to hear of IVAN MOODY from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH being a domestic abuser. Seems his wife HOLLY SMITH is filing for divorce and claiming such. According to TMZ Ivan got caught cheating by Holly. She confronted him. They then went to bed where she woke up as he had her in some sort of martial arts hold and then allegedly wrapped the hotel blanket around her neck and bloodied her eye. The 5FDP camp has yet to respond to these accusations as the charges against Moody were dropped. She's seeking financial support and states he's well off making nearly $700K a year. This is still ongoing.
How the plot thickens! Seems ZOLTAN has responded to these charges about his frontman:
😂 don't know which 1 is more offensive insinuating that Ivan knows JiuJitsu or that he has a wife! none of those R true GottaLoveTheInternet
Seems even though SLIPKNOT is busy humming along, COREY TAYLOR'S other band, STONE SOUR is in the final stages of mixing their covers album "Straight Outta Burbank". Word on the street is they're gonna cover everyone from BAD BRAINS, SLAYER, MOTLEY CRUE & IRON MAIDEN with a tentative release date for end of summer.
ROB ZOMBIE talks about the new album, it's finished, and his plans to roll it out next year!!
Looks like the rumors are true, there's gonna be a BEETLEJUICE 2!!!
Here's that one time when my lady & I dressed as characters for the movie!
Before we get into the cat vs 2 dogs video congrats to SHINEDOWN holding onto the top spot on the Rock charts this week with "Cut the Cord". DISTURBED is closing in at second with their latest, "The Vengeful One".
Alright, onto the cat fighting two dogs!! I really did laugh hard at this one!!
Hardcore metallers TERROR drop their 7th studio album, "25th Hour", today!! Released on the Victory Label and out for an affordable price at $8.99!!
The pride of Troy,Ohio MISS MAY I have their latest offering out now in "Deathless"!
Remember FEAR FACTORY? They're still at it and they've got a new body of work out today with "Genexus"! This marks their 9th studio album as well!
Another band out of Ohio, this time Akron, RED SUN RISING, whose single "The Otherside" has seen some action on The Rock, drop their debut album today with "Polyester Zeal"!
SHINEDOWN make the official announcement today that "Threat to Survival", their 5th album, will be out in September on the 18th!
HERE'S WHAT'S COMING DOWN THE PIKE, WHAT AM I MISSING???

I like the cut of JOHN CAMPANELLI'S jib in how he handles mass texting!! John was today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy!
Here's today's Weekly Rock Wind Up!! Final report about PUDDLE OF MUDD because it's getting ridiculous. Find out who split this week and who's talking about getting back together!! HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES sounds super dope too!! Plus much more!!
Not sure how long this will stay up (see yesterday's blog about FECAL MATTER) but here's an unreleased video clip of lovebirds KURT COBAIN & COURTNEY LOVE. Looks like this is shortly after Cobain was released from the hospital following and overdose. It's actually rather sad....
Pretty stoked for this new series on HBO VINYL. Brought to us by both MARTIN SCORSESE & MICK JAGGER. What I find interesting in the trailer is the usage of NEW YORK DOLLS tune "Personality Crisis" given the Dolls were a parody of the ROLLING STONES. None the less, this looks pretty sick!!
If by NIRVANA I mean Kurt Cobain with a couple other dudes not named Dave Grohl or Krist Novoselic then yes, exactly!! Actually Dale Crover's and he ended up in THE MELVINS. Still though, it's pretty cool to hear early Cobain like this.
Here's an #ICYMI - which I did - about a week ago this mysterious video popped up on the internet from RAMMSTEIN. Nothing about it other than "In Amerika". Will it be a tour? A new concert DVD? A new live album? Details coming....
Today's 4:20 Smoke Break was DAVID FOSTER talking about "Western Medicine".
Better yet, Bob the Bigot!! That shizz don't fly here pal and the judge sided with me on our dogs being a public nuisance!! In honor of this morning's ruling I dedicate this little ditty from GODSMACK to you, Robert, "Crying like a Bitch!" Cause that's what you are!!
Found out this morning that GAVIN ROSSDALE of BUSH and his wife of 13 years GWEN STEFANI (of NO DOUBT) split up. Bum deal as they seemed like an ideal couple. I also enjoyed burning to this number of theirs.
Seriously, I think that's what Monday's are for, to stop us from drinking so heavy!! Had a good time over the weekend, got Double J good and drunk to the point where she passed out in our hammock. If I would have had a cleared head about me I would have taken a photo! Oh well!!
In honor of her birthday this weekend I play this little number from CHRIS D'Elia titled "Drunk Girls"!
Do these guys look like a nuisance to you? We'll find out tomorrow at 11 AM when we have to stand in front of the judge, downtown, and plead our case against my dick of a neighbor Robert!
