Tomorrow night sees the arrival of unstoppable force Gotye, as the Belgian-Australian singer and his cohorts take over a sold-out Verizon Theater to play a bunch of songs no one wants to hear till he closes the show with "Somebody That I Used to Know." The song plays on the radio every few minutes, ... More >>
Maybe my imagination's become limited and cynical in the third decade of existence, but I feel as though this Party Rock thing is on its last legs. It's enjoyed a phenomenal run, mostly in the perennially club-stamped hands of Redfoo and SkyBlu, the two Gordy descendants who compose LMFAO. They're e ... More >>
I don't know how my kid does it. He's heard "ABCs" a thousand times and it's still his number one request. If you have a little one, you know you're going to hear the same song hundreds - no, thousands - of times. If you're particular about the music you listen to, choosing good music to play for yo ...

This week Madonna's 12th studio album and dive into the deep end of the EDM pool, MDNA, came out. I didn't like it very much. But what I like even less is the sexism-tinged age-baiting that the record seems to be inspiring in so many critics. Forbes was likely the worst offender of the bunch, going ... More >>

And, on Saturday, the chain dedicated to rock 'n' roll history, iconic t-shirts and overpriced bar food is celebrating 40 years in the biz. According to the note we just got from the Hard Rock fo ...

Um...this.We've seen this board on our way to work for a while now and every time we drive past we think, "So, The Ferg and Dr Pepper both shave their pubies?" "Dr Pepper Cherry and Fergie, now as amazingly smooth as a baby's bottom."
We're not the only ones who read the board this way. One ... More >>
Hey, the Big Day is here! And, with it, those highly anticipated music performances! It's all so exciting. I'll be honest: I didn't pay too much attention to the pre-pregame stuff -- meaning Maroon 5's and Keith Urban's performances in tents outside of Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. I caught some, ...

Seems the NFL isn't the only one choosing not to comment on yesterday's Dallas Morning News piece that said that the Black Eyed Peas would indeed be the halftime performers at Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington in February. Today, in an interview with Billboard, the Black Eyed Peas' W ... More >>
OMFG! Did anyone else hear the new Usher single, "OMG?" It makes me ROFLMAO. I know Usher is going through a tough time this year, but he must have been burning something to write a single such as this...
With Pete down in Austin attending to all things SXSW, it falls to me to come up with some show recommendations for our area. And there's a lot of stuff going on. Tomorrow brings a Dillinger Escape Plan show to The Granada Theater, and Sunday is especially busy with 97.9's Car Show in Fair Park ... More >>
Your daily dose of national music news for Tuesday, June 23, 2009...
Perez Hilton allegedly got punched by the Black Eyed Peas' manager for calling Will.I.Am a "faggot." It's funny how it's OK for him to call a straight man that. A little bit of a double standard, ya think?
Kid Rock is ... More >>
