The clip was captured at Adler's house by Sumerian Records boss Ash Avildsen. "Here's something the world has never seen," wrote Avildsen on Instagram. "ADLER PLAYING YCBM! I went to my friend Steven Adler's house and asked him to play one of my all time favorite GNR songs.
"Just so damn good. He still has it after all the insanity he put himself through. It's nothing short of a miracle he can still play with his signature feel and swing."
Steven Adler spent years beating himself up for getting fired from Guns N' Roses just before they recorded Use Your Illusion I and II. The drummer-come-pharmaceutical dustbin was given the boot in 1990 after failing to nail new song Civil War in 20 takes. Watch the videohere.
Clad in black leather jacket, black leather pants and a pompadour, frontman Matt Bellamy dances like Elvis Presley as he delivers some blisteringly distorted lyrics. To complete their Cramps cover, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme look equally as greaser, but Howard takes the roll playing one step further with a bloody nose. The three rockers deliver the raw new song in front of a video screen showing clips of an Elvira look-alike.
The continue the theme, Muse has also turned in their trademark logo for one drawn of green slime. No word yet if this song is a one-off or part of a larger offering from the band. Watch the videohere.
The band said at the time: "Fifteen years ago, something quite extraordinary happened. Nine men from Iowa went in to a studio in California and created one of the most chaotic and destructive albums ever made. It was, and still is, a shockingly physical and ferocious recording.
"To this day, it has never been performed in its entirety. That is about to change. On September 25, 2016, at Knotfest in San Bernardino, 30,000 people will experience an event that has never been done before."
Slipknot were joined on the bill by Slayer, Amon Amarth, Anthrax, Trivium, Sabaton, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Emmure, OverKill, Butcher Babies, Man With A Mission, Combichrist, Death Angel, Sim and Oni.
This year also saw Knotfest join forces with Ozzfest for the first time at the San Manuel Amphitheatre for a weekend of music, fire displays and carnival rides. Watch the videohere.
The clip is edited to simulate buffering glitches, and we watch the doomed relationship short circuit over four minutes. Those details would subtly evoke his recent history with Taylor, but the haywire editing made it possible to include some brief, direct visual references to her career.
Apropos of nothing, his girlfriend is suddenly suspended mid-air in their foyer, dressed in a Fifth Element style bandeau. It's totally incongruous with the suburban, pedestrian backdrop except that Swift wore a similar outfit (and struck similar pose) in her video for "Bad Blood."
In another shot, Harris and his girlfriend are seen dining at opposite ends of a long table, a setup Swift has favored in videos for "Blank Space" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Is Harris putting Swift on blast? Watch the video and decide for yourselfhere.
Shortly after Cudi's Twitter rant, Kanye and Drake fired back at the rapper, then when he realized Cudi might be mentally ill Kanye extended an olive branch.
Drake might still be mad at Cudi, as evidenced by the lyrics of his new song "Two Birds, One Stone," but for West the September flare-up seems like water under the bridge. Kanye dedicated "Father Stretch My Hands, Pt.1" to Kid Cudi during an L.A. stop of his Saint Pablo Tour.
'So Cudi, he is rehab right now, but he got a number one song on the radio and I want you to sing so he can hear itů Cudi, do you hear them?" asked Yeezy. Read morehere.
In the short clip premiered by Pitchfork, Grohl briefly chats about Nirvana's early Nevermind demos which were cut at the Seattle venue between April 2-6, 1990, under the watchful eye of Vig.
He says: "When I joined the band, they had this demo that sounded amazing - it sounded huge. It sounded different than the things they had done before. Everyone talked about Butch."
Other artists to feature in the documentary include Garbage's Shirley Manson and Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins. Read more and watch the Grohl cliphere.
Meghan Trainer along with co-writers Johan Carlsson and Ross Golan (who have written for Ariana Grande, Flo Rida) created the tune "You Gotta Not" for Little Mix, and it's got a lighter version of the soul/funk Trainer normally sings for herself. The song's meter oscillates between upbeat rhymes and more long, drawn out phrasing.
"I need a man/ A man who can act like a man/ So help me now," the girls sing on the chorus, warning any potential dudes that they aren't to play babysitters. "I'm only looking for the one to love," they conclude.
Glory Days arrives November 18th, and Little Mix will be hitting the road with Ariana Grande on her Dangerous Woman Tour in 2017. Listen to "You Gotta Not"here.
Dubbed "Candy," the slow jam was written to tempt soccer moms and other homeowners whose candy Horan would like to take home on Halloween. Some of the best lines?
Niall assured one lady, "Girl, when you break me off a Kit Kat, I'm gonna make your tootsie pop." And Corden said, "I'm Captain Sugar Daddy because I'm about to starburst." Watch the cliphere.
The two keep it going all night with their latest track, which appears on Charli's upcoming studio album. She has yet to share the name or official release date for that project. "After the afterparty/ We're gonna keep it going/ We've going to rev it up/ The neighbors might complain," Charli sings on the chorus, her voice inflecting the last syllable of each word to create a sing-song quality.
Lil Yachty comes in toward the end. "The party was so crazy/ The party was so crazy/ Tomorrow I'll be lazy/ But I'll spend it with ya, baby," he raps in the last part of his verse with a touch of auto Read morehere.
Now Sebastian is making his debut in the music video game, appearing in Wiz's new clip for "Sleep at Night." The family affair is even more striking when Wiz subtly shouts out to his ex-wife (and Sebastian's mom) Amber Rose.
"Baby mama say that I ain't living right, but all this counting money help me sleep at night," he raps. Watch Wiz Khalifa 's new video (featuring Sebastian)here.
He tells Fret 12: "I was pretty wild during my 20s and 30s. I think it was just after my 30s that I actually mellowed out. I was always flirting with drugs and drinking and stuff that could have gone really wrong. I overdosed once in Canada - took a lot of painkillers and drink and woke up in a hospital.
"There's crazy stories of me in Europe drinking hand sanitizer. I wanted to drink something, hand sanitizer was the only thing available, so that was it, I drank that. That was pretty crazy, very wild. Read morehere.
Wade later took to Twitter to apologize to his fans. "I wanna apologize to my young fans on my gesture at the end of last nights game," he wrote. "I was caught up in the emotions of my first game at home."
Fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper appreciated Wade's apology and chimed in with a simple thank you message of his own via Twitter. See both tweetshere.
