The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/15/08 - (antiMusic) Here are some quicks to get you started this morning. Lohan and Kanye are nerds! N.E.R.D. just release a new video for the track "Everyone Nose" and it features cameos from Lindsay Lohan and Kanye West. Check it out at AOHell
We've been known to give Nikki "Dude, I died! Dude" Sixx a hard time from time to time for being... well, Nikki Sixx. But when he does something good we also like to pass on that news as well. So here you go: Nikki was recently honored at Covenant House California's 9th annual Awards Gala held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The highlight of the evening was a check presentation of $250,000 to Covenant House by honoree Nikki Sixx. Sixx is donating a portion of proceeds from his New York Times best-selling book The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star to benefit Running Wild In The Night, a creative arts program he created for Covenant House California at their youth shelters in Los Angeles and Oakland.

We're running this one in the off off off off chance that The Mirror printed something factual: Chris Sharrock, Robbie Williams' drummer, is to replace Zack Starkey as the drummer in Oasis, according to reports. more

Feral Children's debut album, Second To The Last Frontier, will be released July 8 on Sarathan Records. But they were kind enough to send over a link for a free MP3. Who are the Feral Children and why should download this song. For one the song is free and as for who the band is, their publicist sent us this blurb "Feral Children are a high-energy Seattle-based experimental-rock band with a wide range of sonic explorations and an explosive live show. Their debut album draws upon and expands from their diverse set of influences Comparisons to Animal Collective and early-era Modest Mouse are good starting points, but don't fully recognize Feral Children's complete range." go here to download the "Spy/Glass House" mp3 already

Robyn is the latest artist to be featured in the Zune Ignition program, and has released the track "Konitchiwa Bitches (Menta Mix)" exclusively on Zune Marketplace as a bonus track to the full album download of her latest release Robyn.

Now we know why everyone and their brother are putting out Sinatra related releases this spring. What were the chances we'd be seeing Frank Sinatra on a U.S. postage stamp? Well, he competed against 50,000 others and won. That's how many annual proposals are made for new stamps. On Tuesday, the late crooner's face appeared on one of them. Gene Simmons can still brag that he was stamped before the Chairman of the Board. more
