According to a post by the band, which revealed the new tune, the Orange County punkers thought it would be fun to record our their own version of The Dickies classic track, "Ž'Gigantor."
The guys have made it clear that they have a pension for campy thrillers and Sharknado sit atop that mountain. Watch the trailer for the 4th installment in the series here.
"Prayers for my sister please! I'm all the way out in Nebraska and get a text that she was stabbed 4 times," Brown wrote around 12am CT Wednesday, July 27th. 'You better hope I don't find out who you are. I'm so sick to my stomach right now."
One follower implored, 'Kane Brown please, please, please don't do something that you will regret! Please! Of course prayers for your sister and your entire family. To which Brown replied, 'Oh I'd never do anything stupid that's what lawyers are for." Read more here.
Harris apparently thinks West is "brilliant with music" and sees the possibilities of collaborating on something "down the road." While it once seemed unlikely that these two specific artists would ever work together on something, it's looking more and more possible.
Harris met Kim Kardashian this past weekend when they both attended J. Lo's birthday party. "When Kim walked in, Calvin saw her and stood up. He was clearly excited to see her and said 'hi' to Kim backstage," Harris' source told E! News. They didn't just exchange greetings, though. The pair reportedly talked for 15 minutes. Read more here.
Using the melody and beat from "Break Free" and many of the lyrics from "Make Me," YouTube user Logan Mashups combined the two songs to create a new version that seems perfect for the dance floor.
G-Eazy retains his featured verse in the new song, but the background swells in a much more anthemic way than on Spears' original version. The two pop stars may never work together on their own, original song, but in the meantime both fan camps can be satisfied with this new take. Listen here.
The country star asked fans on Twitter what he should do with his day off. "Hmmmm…. Well.. Let's play a game y'all. I have the day off and a map of the United States in front of me. Where should I go?" he wrote to fans early Wednesday morning. One early bird got the worm. A fan asked Shelton if he was planning on playing a free show somewhere.
Shelton responded that he was only thinking of going somewhere and was looking for suggestions about what to do, but the fan's tweet got him thinking. "Hell I guess I could," he tweeted. Within minutes, things were in the works. "Ok.. I got the band together. They're ready.. Now where to?!!!" He followed up that question with two more mysterious posts, sharing that something was in the works.
Kansas City was the lucky winner. "Hey Kansas City.. You!!!!! Tonight! Whiskey Tango Doors at 7:30 PM First come, first serve," he tweeted. Read more here.
After the photo was published, Method grew protective of her and begged the blogger to take it down (XXL). In a series of tweets, Method grew more upset that Gray didn't respond to his request.
"I'll ask again could u Please take it down, if u hv any decency in u. Please!" he wrote. "I guess follows n likes are more important than tastefulness and decency'Smh." he added. "I'm done with it maybe the ppl can get at em and help him understand. if not meh!"
After he failed to get a response, he decided to be done with it all. "I'm done with social media until further notice. I've lost faith in human decency and will not feed trolls any longer. F- u all. 1," he wrote. Read more here.
The case also called out Lady Gaga's reading out of The Manifesto of Mother Monster as a reference to Orlan's Manifeste de l'art Charnel (Manifesto of Carnal Art). The sculptor asked for $31.7 million in damages, which is 7.5 percent of the profits generated by the album, Artnet.com reported.
Not only was Orlan denied any payment, she was ordered to pay Gaga and her record label $22,000 each in fees as dictated by France's legal code for civil proceedings. Read more here.
Future Present Past organizes three songs on the release into future ("Drag Queen"), present ("Oblivius") and past ("Threat of Joy"). Let's hope the band's 2016 reunion yields another studio album in the near future.
So far, the Strokes have released their spy-thriller themed video for "Threat of Joy" and a lyric video for "Drag Queen." Watch the Stroke's Kimmel live set here.
The feature film follows four teenage boys in Cleveland, Ohio who fight to escape their city in order to pursue their dreams of being professional skateboarders.
It's not Nas' first foray into film production. He worked closely with Baz Luhrmann on the director's new Netflix series The Get Down, which premieres in August. Listen to "This Bitter Land" here.
"Over the past few years I've experienced the unexpected," he says. 'My Dad received a cancer diagnosis and I, unfortunately, went through a divorce. People probably thought I would record songs that reflected those difficult times, but I found myself gravitating to songs that had more of a positive vibe and actually made me feel better by singing them. Music truly does seem to help the healing process."
As Owen said on his Facebook page, 'This album has always been about love. From beginning to end, that's what it's meant to me. The title track 'American Love' started it, and it's the fourth song you get when you preorder my album. I couldn't be more proud of it and more fired up for you to hear the whole thing."

After catching up with Radio.com, it's crystal clear the British one-man-band is not interested in releasing music just to fill the marketplace. Garratt wants to touch his audience through the most well-conceived and emotional melodies he can possibly produce.
"I've always said that I would only ever release something that I would want to listen to as a fan," says the multi-instrumentalist. "I don't think there's any such thing as perfection. But I'm a perfectionist. I don't believe in the idea of perfection but I will strive to achieve it." Read more here.
"Election Day" is about the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election and all the rhetoric and overall angst that so many feel over the choices they have for the top office in our country. But, it really is equally the frustration that the hard working people of this country feel when they see so much money being taken out of their paychecks, fighting with insurance companies over medical bills, student loan debts when all your trying to do is make a better life for yourself. "Election Day" is a snapshot of all those feelings and really Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton stand front and center of all those ill feelings that the majority of the country have right now.
The main riff for "Election Day" had been in my head for quite awhile and I just needed a subject matter to attach it too. During the initial writing of the song, I had Green Day's "Holiday" in my head and I really loved the production with all the "heys" and the overall feel of it was definitely something I was going for. I also had Joan Jett's, "I Hate Myself For loving You" & "Do You Wanna Touch Me" in my thought process too. I wanted that big guitar and drum sound which turned out great. The sound I got was very close to what was in my head. The last part was the bridge which the idea was kind of in line with Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell".
I was originally going to put a big 80's like guitar solo in there, which I have done and recorded so many times. I decided not too and keep the bridge almost carnival like to lead you into that final big chorus.
The lyrics came pretty easily. I started with the "One's A Liar and One's A Fool" and it flowed pretty easily after that. I decided to really focus most of the lyrics on the economic woes and some of the other issues that the working and disabled have to go through instead of making all the lines about Trump and Clinton. Most important, was working out the chorus, which I really worked hard on to get it right, not only from a voting and having a voice focus but the overall power of the melody, and guitar and drum sound.
We recorded the song in a few hours and did very little overdubbing. My bassist John Henderson and drummer Nestor Arcelay had only played the song a few times and really couldn't believe I was rushing them in to record this song that they really had just heard.
My producer and Engineer Chris Breen, did a great job in getting that big sound I was looking for. We originally had a live audience track that was there throughout the song. I always liked the sound of Aerosmith's "Train Kept A Rollin" which has a simulated live audience that you hear clearly in the bridge part of the song, I thought it sounded so cool. I decided at the end that it might have been a bit too noisy. I still released a version of the "Captured Live" version of "Election Day" on the World Wide Web.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
