    6 Punk Bands We Need to Stop Talking About

    I have an embarrassing tendency to bait people into conversations where I just talk about cool things I am doing. Surprise, right? While it likely stems from being bored with hearing of the mundane achievements of others (babies, crappy jobs, cars), there is a part of me that figures it must stem fr ... More >>

    Nine Musicians Whose Deleted Tweets We'd Love To Peruse With Undetweetable

    ​Here's the thing about musicians: Many of them are loud, messy, and opinionated. Social media has given them yet another outlet for their rantings and ravings, and we, as fans, eat it up whenever our favorite musicians go on Twitter and mouth off.  This is, tweets are deletable.

    In Honor of Nicki Minaj's Dallas Hotel Skirmish: The Ten Best Musician Fights of All-Time
