Bring Me The Horizon Mashed Up With Drake

(Metal Hammer) A video has been released online that shows rapper Drake performing live on stage - but it's been overlaid with Bring Me The Horizon track Shadow Moses.

The short clip was created by Ghost Killer Entertainment under the title If Drake Was A Metal Vocalist. Last year, a mash-up featuring Drake and Danzig surfaced, showing the Misfits man synched with Drake's The Catch Up.

Meanwhile, Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish announced earlier this week that they would scale Mount Kilimanjaro for charity.

The pair are hoping to raise 100,000 for Southampton's Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, who looked after Fish's son Eliot after the baby suffered a brain hemorrhage when he was just four days old.

The drive has is currently sitting at 17,000, with those interested in donating urged to visit their Just Giving page. Check out the mash-up here.

Beyonce 'Lemonade' Lawsuit Dismissed

(Radio.com) Last Wednesday (Sept. 1), a New York federal judge dismissed indie filmmaker Matthew Fulks' lawsuit that accused Beyonce of copying his work for her award-winning visual album Lemonade, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Fulks sued the pop diva in June, claiming the visual album and its trailer copied nine different elements of his short film, Palinoia. Beyonce's attorneys responded quickly in July.

They explaining that the elements mentioned in the suit -- such as "graffiti and persons with heads down," "parking garage" and "side-lit ominous figures"--are universal cinematic images that don't constitute copyright infringement. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff agreed and granted the singer's motion to dismiss. Read more here.

Rory Feek Hasn't Written New Music Since Joey's Death

(Radio.com) It's been five months since Joey Feek passed away, and while her husband Rory has plans to keep her memory alive, he admits having difficulty with other aspects of her death, like selecting a headstone for her grave.

Rory appeared on CBS Sunday Morning this Sunday (September 4), where he opens up about the trouble he's had selecting the right way to commemorate her final resting place in a cemetery on the grounds of their 60-acre farm. "I don't know if it's that she's so simple, and a wooden cross is part of what she would like," he says in the interview. "It probably has something to do with permanence. So, for now, I can sit out here and feel like it's - it's maybe just temporary. Although I know it's not."

Feek also hasn't started writing music since Joey passed. "I don't want to go on stage without her," he says. "That's what I'm thinking about right now. I just don't want to make music without her. But I also know time changes things. So I won't say never. It's just where I am today." Read more here.

Justin Bieber Concerned About Ed Sheeran

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran are friends. Friends compliment each other, but they also point out blind spots their pals might not see. So when he began to tell BBC Radio 1 about his friend Ed Sheeran, Justin started with the good news:

"I really appreciate his music," Bieber glowed. "I appreciate who he is as a person. He's an inspiration to a lot of young people--he makes awesome music that people are inspired by and that people laugh to, cry to and I think it's important in music to have those people who bring the emotion out of you There's something about him that just makes you like him. He's very likable and very, very talented."

But then Bieber, perhaps wizened by years of scrutiny, hit 'em with the bad news: "Let's hope he doesn't. We gotta make sure he doesn't do something stupid to mess it all up," Bieber said. Read more here.

Doc Reveals The Beatles Refused To Play Segregated Clubs

(Radio.com) Ron Howard directed the forthcoming documentary about the Beatles' touring years, Eight Days A Week, and in going through archival footage he discovered an interesting point about the band: they refused to play in segregated clubs.

McCartney admits not remembering that stipulation because it's been over 50 years since they demanded it, but upon seeing footage of the Beatles' riders it very clearly states that they wouldn't have anything to do with venues that treated black listeners differently. "It jogs all the memories," McCartney told Los Angeles Times about watching the documentary. "That's one of the joys about seeing the film."

Speaking about their stance on racial equality, he said, "One of the great things for me was all the civil rights things that we'd always naturally had an empathy with, just because we had loads of black friends and of all our [musical] heroes, many of them were black. To see in the film that we actually put it in our contracts, we didn't remember that. I was very impressed with that. It was very cool." Read more here.

Florida Georgia Line Talk New Album Dig Your Roots

(Radio.com) "It's cool to be honest with what you've been through and where you come from," Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley tells Radio.com. He's talking about a few things at once: he's referencing the fact that he and bandmate Tyler Hubbard appreciate their southern background and upbringing. But he's also discussing their musical influences, some of whom pop up on the duo's new album, Dig Your Roots.

Tyler Hubbard elaborates, "I think diggin' our roots means' it's just about taking a look back at the way we were raised, the things we learned, it's making sure we're being the men we want to be, presently, and looking towards the future. That encompasses the whole concept of the album, and of our tour, and really the last couple years of our life."

Kelley continues: "I think we've always tried to dig our roots, and be as real as we can be. I think country music is [about] where you're at, and being as transparent as you can be. When we put out 'Cruise,' that's exactly where we were at, when we put out 'Dirt,' that was exactly where we were at."

Kelley says that some of the songs on the album have been written for a few years, but they didn't fit on FGL's prior two albums: "There's some songs on this album that we dug out of the woodwork: 'While He's Still Around,' 'Grow Old,' some other songs that we needed to hit, some themes, some messages that we thought were important, there's so many sides to who we are, and it's hard to get it out in two or three albums. This third album has many different dynamics, and it's cool to show those sides and be a bit more vulnerable with our fans." Read more here.

Moody Gives Five Finger Death Punch A 'Personal' Feel

(Metal Hammer) Frontman Ivan Moody gives Five Finger Death Punch a "personal" feel even at massive shows, according to bandmate Chris Kael. The bassist says his bandmate channels his anger into their music "lyrically" - and this allows them to connect with their fans on an intimate level.

He tells Ramzine, "Ivan does all the lyrics, all the vocal melodies. We'll chime in here and there for a couple of melodies or whatnot, but he's great at what he does.

"He's able to catch that third rail where he can connect to massive audiences. It takes a certain personality to be able to reach out in that type of crowd and give everybody that personal experience, and Ivan Moody's a guy that's able to do that."

When asked whether Moody was as "scary" as he appears to be, Kael replies: "Not really, no. He's a very complex individual, though." Read more and watch the full interview clip here.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong Movie Set For Release

(TeamRock) Ordinary World, a film starring Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, is to be released next month. The movie, which premiered as Geezer at Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, sees Armstrong play an ageing former punk rocker settling into suburban life. It will be released on October 14 across both cinemas and retailers.

The singer and guitarist has previously starred in Nurse Jackie, Like Sunday, Like Rain and had a cameo appearance in This Is 40. He also appeared on the Green Day-based Broadway musical American Idiot - but this will be Armstrong's first leading role on the big screen.

A synopsis reads: "The mid-life crisis of a husband and father who, on his 40th birthday, he seeks to revisit his former life as the lead singer in a popular punk band though his middle-aged reality quickly - and hilariously - clashes with the indulgences of his youth." Read more here.

Singled Out: Bizzythowed

Bizzythowed just released his new Blank Check Vol 2 EP and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song "Smoking Weed". Here is the story:

Miami 2011 in a rehearsal space known as the "Cave" that was located behind our bass player Oscar's sisters house. A shack that had everything a band needed in it to get really good and also everything that a band needed to get really stoned as well. Oscar is a Cuban guy with a Cuban/Irish blended family. He smokes pot and cigs and drinks whiskey great guy. Rhody was my drummer, A Jamaican guy who loved hard core and metal. These guys were what was left from my previous band Purple Popcorn. We started jamming that summer of 2011 in a attempt to make something different and more "Punk" that what we were doing before which was more pop rock/rap oriented although towards the end of PP we had def started going more towards hard rock and metal. The song was originally called "Push" and it was a riff i came up with that we started jamming. I decided to record it before i left Miami and went towards LA so I did a rough version with my old mates. I moved to LA and I meant to finish the project but i ended up meeting The Weeknd and I started writing and traveling with him and four years went by. I would work on the project here and there between breaks and finally last summer I was able to finish the song with lyrics and i re recorded it and renamed it Smoking Weed. In the four years smoking is something i had always done since high school growing up in Houston. But after traveling to Cali and Amsterdam and all over to vape lounges in Toronto to Coffee shops in Amsterdam and dispensaries in LA. It inspired my to write about the revolution happening and to tell people to celebrate and get on board with the times. Ive been arrested for weed before and it sucked so I'm glad i can enjoy and i just wanted to share that with my fans and fellow smokers. The second verse is a story about me and "Mary" who I'm referring to as a female but I'm really referring to "Mary Jane" a nickname for marijuana. So just like a stoner a riff i make from smoking in Miami in 2011 became a actual song in 2016.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
