The video combines Rick James' "Super Freak" with Foo Fighters' "The Pretender," The Beach Boys "Help Me Rhonda" and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven."
Cumberbund is know for his offbeat takes on popular music including his clown filled "Stacey's Mom" sequel and his sad version of Smash Mouth's "All Star."
The Foos were impressed, tweeting a link to the clip with the simple caption "F— YES." Check out the mashuphere.
"I get the hint God," Fiasco wrote in a tweet. "Yo Lupe fans it's been fun and I hope you had fun. I'm officially not releasing anymore music. Albums cancelled."
In December of 2015 Fiasco promised fans three new albums in 2016, but none of the those albums was ever released. What changed is unclear, Lupe did not elaborate on the "hint" he had received.
Lupe's account has now been set to private. Check out a screen shot via XXLhere.
This time it happened at the Fox Theatre in Hanford, California on Saturday (Dec. 10). Not wanting to cancel their concert, the GRAMMY-nominated country duo, composed of brothers John and TJ Osborne, took control of the situation. They used their bus generator for power and hosted their own show from the roof of the bus.
Minutes after the venue's roof caved in, the Brothers told fans to meet them outside. "When we thought about this, I totally forgot I'm afraid of heights," joked TJ in a press release. 'We just wanted to give the fans some entertainment and have as much fun as possible."
Brothers Osborne have been nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their single "21 Summer." Watch Brothers Osborne's 30-minute set atop their bushere.
"It's my understanding that McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" cannot be played to prisoners of war under the Geneva Convention," wrote a Twitter user Colbert quoted in his intro.
No, there's something much worse than "Wonderful Christmastime." It's called "Christmas Is Now," and Jones performed it with Colbert last night. Get ready for the most grating, schlocky holiday tune you've ever heard. It will make you beg to hear McCartney's iconic 1979 gem. And that's just the point. If Colbert can take the prize for the worst Christmas song of all time, well, then McCartney might be off the hook — which won't stop Paul's song from playing over and over every holiday season. Watch ithere.
The movie will include interviews with a plethora of musicians from across the musical spectrum, including Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and U2 singer Bono.
While both Reznor and Bono may seem to have little to do with Dr. Dre's rap world, the connection lies in the fact both Nine Inch Nails and U2 have released albums via Iovine's record label, Interscope Records. Also, Reznor has worked with Dr. Dre's music company Beats by Dre.
Other musicians set to appear in The Defiant Ones include Bruce Springsteen, No Doubt's Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Ice Cube and David Geffen. Read morehere.

Some background: Corgan performed the Siddhartha set at Madame Zuzu's Tea Show in Chicago before a very patient audience of 40. Critics have described the set as "ambient" and "synth-heavy," though another word that works is "long." The box set will retail on a limited run of 500 copies.

On Tuesday morning (Dec. 13), however, Sheeran broke his year-long hiatus with cryptic posts on Twitter and Instagram--simple images of a blue box. Could this be an indication that new music is on the way? While Sheeran hasn't revealed any details about his forthcoming album, he said last year that he would be working on it during his social media break.
'To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing," he wrote at the time. Read morehere.
"This is the most impressive collection of rare, vintage guitars I have seen," says Gill, who will curate some of the exhibits. "I am honored and excited to be a part of such a tremendous display of music history."
Johnny Smith, President of the Songbirds Guitar Museum, said Gill is a great fit for what the museum has in mind for the future. "We are incredibly excited to have Vince Gill join the Songbirds team," he said. "His connection as a guitar player and his talent as a performer make him a perfect spokesman to help us share our epic collection of guitars with music lovers everywhere."
Smith says the museum will feature a rotating collection of about 300 guitars from the total of 1,700 in the collection. These include one-of-a-kind model, prototypes and models that were first or early production models. Read morehere.

"We know where we come from," Jay said in his speech. "We do understand where we come from, and the only difference between us and someone who has their MBA from Wharton or Sloan or Berkeley or Stanford is opportunity. LeBron James has provided his friends with that opportunity." Read morehere.
"In this day and age, it's more important than ever to try and find those moments to disconnect," says Fitzpatrick. "My thing is, to whenever I can, put the phone down, turn off the devices.
"I just like to find a quiet space and calm myself and tune the world out for a second. Maybe even sometimes do a small moment of meditation and use that energy as a place to find that center."
When he has the time to take a few days to chill out, he and his actress wife Kaylee Defer escape to Greater Palm Springs.

Speaking with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Q-Tip pontificated on the iconic hip hop group's future. "Stay tuned for any other incarnation because we don't intend on stopping," he said.
"That was [the late] Phife's M.O.: 'This time we gotta do it and keep going.' And now he's left us with the equation of how do we do it, but we're going to need it, and we're going to continue."

I wrote the song "Crazy Janet" on a flight to Miami, where I was meeting a friend who wanted to shoot a music video. The problem was, there was no music.
I had a guitar riff that I had been noodling around with for a few months, and seeing the deadline was the duration of the flight between NYC and Miami, I quickly put together a scratch track, which didn't change much when we actually recorded the song.
Lyrically, Janet which we refer to in the song is loosely based on an elderly woman who hosts bands during video shoots in Sheffield,UK. I believe she also hosted Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth). Nevertheless, she had a very interesting memory, she would barely remember anyone in the house but at the same time she would make new memories up as the day progressed, thinking we were her children, or that we resided with her for years.
I didn't spend enough time with her to write a full song about her, so I combined her and the elements of an ex-girlfriend which was a poisonous relationship; the typical love story where I couldn't live with or without her. She was a real pain in the ass, but that was also what attracted me more to her, just as she was drawn more to me when I ignored her as opposed to
when I cared for her.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
