Blink-182 Reinterpret 'What's My Age Again?' Video With Nude Women

(Radio.com) Blink-182 have released a video for the new single "She's Out of Her Mind". The video reinterprets Blink-182's memorable music video for "What's My Age Again?".

The original video found the three members running naked down the street while crossing paths at one point with the gorgeous nurse (adult film star Janine Lindemulder) who also graced their Enema of the State album cover. In the new video, three girls run naked down the street and cross paths with actor Adam DeVine, who is dressed like the nurse.

More than just recreate the video with a new twist, though, the clip also integrates live footage of the featured band and cuts it in between that overarching narrative. Blink-182 perform "She's Out of Her Mind" in between the girls running amok on the streets.

The clip is part of a new Spotify series Flash Frame, which will focus on artists' biggest career moments. Check out the new clip here.

Former Pearl Jam Member Upset About Rock Hall Snub

(hennemusic) Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese is reaching out to the band via social media to request their help to have him included in their nomination for the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

"It's just a fine opportunity to see what Pearl Jam has to say in response," posted Abbruzzese on Facebook. "Let's see if they do the right thing. It'll be interesting to see the spin that is put on it. That band and its management have never been ones to shy away when an injustice is done. Let's see if they still have the courage to fight the good fight!

"I've seen them change a 15 year old settlement agreement just by ignoring its contents and withholding money that didn't belong to them in order to force me to accept the changes. They know how to play the game…their way! … The members of Pearl Jam have got to know what's the right thing to do. They can't justify ignoring my contributions. Like me or not."

A few days after his initial comments, Abbruzzese once again turned to Facebook to express some further thoughts on the Rock Hall situation. "I rarely gave anything less than all I had to give," he wrote of his time with Pearl Jam. "I left that stage feeling like I gave you all you could want, then punched ya square in the stomach and you liked it. I liked it, too. I still do. So do you......Knowing that makes me happy.

"I don't feel snubbed, I was shocked at first because I didn't know that the R&RHOF folks don't really know what's up. In the little press snippets that is going around, I seem upset. I think it's cool that it's happening. Now I'll see how it plays out. I am so moved and proud. I am proud to have touched so many with what I do and did with music." Read more here.

The Chainsmokers Announce New 'Collage' EP

(Radio.com) The Chainsmokers have announced that they will be releasing their second EP, entitled Collage, on November 4th. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall released their debut EP Bouquet in October 2015, but don't seem to have any plans to record a studio album.

That entirely depends upon how much their fans actually want it. In September, the duo tweeted, "We will always continue to release music. But an album is something different. Something more complete that reflects a time in our lives. An album is a big deal, not just a compilation of random singles, that's how we see it. But if u all start making some noise for one.. Well."

Little is known about Collage, though the duo did say it will include a new track called "Setting Fires," but it's fair to say that Taggart and Pall are working with bigger and bigger artists since their brand has blown up. Read more here.

Kings of Leon Cover Selena Gomez's 'Hands to Myself'

(Radio.com) Selena Gomez has stepped away from the spotlight to sort out some challenges in her private life, but during her hiatus fans can enjoy a live version of her hit "Hands to Myself" from an unlikely source -- Kings of Leon, who performed a pared-down rock arrangement of the song.

They delivered their version via the Vevo Live Lounge. Despite their acclaim in the contemporary rock community, Kings of Leon haven't shied away from today's most teen-friendly pop acts.

Nathan Followill's admiration for Harry Styles gained attention earlier this month as the band promotes their new album Walls. Watch the Vevo Live Lounge performance here.

RZA Calls Out Azealia Banks Over Russell Crowe Incident

(Radio.com) RZA has addressed the incident between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe at which he found himself at the center. In a lengthy post on his official Facebook page RZA writes:

"Normally I don't respond to negative social media attacks towards me. Yet in this case of Azealia Banks I'm compelled to respond. Firstly I only wish the best for her and any struggling artist in this complex industry.

"Azealia was brought to my attention while I was casting my next Film Coco. I heard the rumors of her problems in the industry but disregarded them with the rationality everyone is innocent until proven guilty. So my producer and I fought for her to be in the film and we succeeded. During the filming process things ran smooth and she delivered. Thus my only experience with her had been professional. The only brief social moment was at the wrap party. Therefore "I HAD NO REAL EXPERIENCE OF HER SOCIAL BEHAVIOR…"

He goes on to detail the evening in question. "Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious. There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest. Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical… Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason. Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite. Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented. I was totally puzzled by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out." Read more here.

The lyrics address the sadness and reflection that often accompany the end of a relationship: 'I know I'm probably better off on my own'/ I know the bravest thing I ever did was run/ Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again/ But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man."

In the chorus, the group sings, "And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand/ And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man/ A better man." Listen to "Better Man" here.

Kendrick Lamar and Rick Rubin Working Together In The Studio

(Radio.com) It doesn't matter that Kendrick Lamar and producer Rick Rubin had never met prior to conducting an interview together for an article in GQ Style this month. The two apparently had such a good time conversing that they're translating their verbal chatter into something more melodic. According to the magazine, they began working in the studio after the interview.

Lamar last released the surprise drop Untitled Unmastered earlier this year, which were recordings made during his To Pimp a Butterly studio sessions. As the co-founder of Def Jam Records, Rubin has worked with some of hip-hop's more socially conscious groups, including Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys.

In the piece, Rubin interviewed Lamar, asking him at one point about his single "Alright" and the creative struggle to write it. Lamar explained how it took some time. Pharrell had come up with the beat, and he felt immense pressure to make the words equal to what he felt existed within that rhythm. "So with Pharrell and Sam [Taylor] asking me--Am I gonna rock on it? When I'm gonna rock on it?--it put the pressure on me to challenge myself," Lamar said. "To actually think and focus on something that could be a staple in hip-hop. And eventually, I came across it. Eventually, I found the right words. You know, it was a lot going on, and still, to this day, it's a lot going on. And I wanted to approach it as more uplifting--but aggressive. Not playing the victim, but still having that We strong, you know?"

When asked if there was anything he would go back and change about his previous tracks, Lamar said, "It would be me saying, I want to go deeper. I shoulda went deeper." It seems fair to say that with Rubin he'll definitely be able to accomplish that. In fact, both were feeling such a strong creative vibe that Rubin offered to head into the studio at that moment with Lamar, and he happily accepted. Check out the full conversation between Rubin and Lamar here.

Johnny Cash's Cover of 'Hurt' Featured In 'Logan' Trailer

(Radio.com) Johnny Cash's famous cover of the Nine Inch Nails' 1994 song "Hurt" is itself a brooding wound of a song, so what better choice to soundtrack the new trailer for the third and final Wolverine movie, Logan?

Cash's version appears in the trailer, and sets the tone for the physically and psychologically wounded superhero played by Hugh Jackman. Using the song to tell Wolverine's tail might be a bit more calculating than it seems on the surface.

Some new percussion and minor movie sound effects create a crescendo not found in Cash's original cover. Logan's director James Mangold also directed the Cash biopic Walk the Line (2005). Read more here.

Kanye West and Drake Collaboration Killed By 'Apple Tidal' Politics?

(Radio.com) Drake's juggernaut Views contains guest spots from Rihanna, Future, and PARTYNEXTDOOR, but two of his foremost rap contemporaries don't appear on the track list: Jay Z and Kanye West.

That's not because they didn't collaborate in the studio. Jay and 'Ye laid down verses for "Pop Style" but the song was excluded from the final cut of Views. In a characteristically honest moment, West told a Seattle crowd that label politics prevented "Pop Style" from reaching the masses.

"Y'all didn't get, what y'all were supposed to get with me and Drake on this song because of some Tidal/Apple bullsh–," Kanye said. "Every time I perform this song I think about this sh–. I think about the politics. I think about how hard I go for music, for art, for y'all." Read more here.
