Hawthorne Heights No Chickens
Peta reports: With their forthcoming album, If Only You Were Lonely, hitting shelves and three months of touring still ahead of them, Hawthorne Heights is one very busy quintet.

Says Casey in the PSA, "Did you know that many of the 850 million chickens killed for KFC's buckets each year have their wings and legs broken and are scalded to death while they're still conscious? Probably not, because KFC doesn't want you to know." The PSA is part of PETA's international "Kentucky Fried Cruelty" Campaign.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

We Can't Make it Here
conqueroo reports: "We Can't Make it Here," James McMurtry's musical commentary on the current state of the union, is creating a stir with critics, radio programmers, and politicians around the country. "I've always been a little put off by activists. So you know it's a dire situation when I have to become one myself," says McMurtry. McMurtry made the song available as a free download on his website during the 2004 presidential election. The response to the track was immediate, overwhelming, and prompted McMurtry to set up an online discussion board on his website where fans could share their thoughts on the song. Author Stephen King named "We Can't Make It Here" the number two single of the year in his influential Entertainment Weekly music column (Childish Things was his number two album of the year). Robert Christgau, the "Dean of American Rock Critics," also declared it the second best single of the year in the Village Voice's Annual Pazz and Jop Poll. Entertainment Weekly declared it the "protest song of the decade." The disc became available for the first time without FCC censorship on McMurtry's latest album, 2005's Childish Things.

Radio stations across the country are making a bold move by adding the single (which clocks in at over seven minutes) into regular rotation.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
