  • Jimmy Kimmel Announces Supergroup Mashups with Weezer, HAIM, ZZ Top

    Jimmy Kimmel may have alienated himself to Morrissey, but the talk show host is still evidently popular among other musicians, since he has managed to rope in a number of big-name acts for a string of collaborative performances in February. This series is called "Mash Up Mondays," and it will bring audiences weekly performances in which two artists will unite to form a supergroup. First up, on February 2, Weezer and ZZ Top will get together as Wee-Z Top. Then on February 9, HAIM along with Morris Day and the Time will form Morris Day and the HAIM. Then on February 16, Aloe Blacc...

  • Marilyn Manson: ‘I created a fake world because I didn’t like the one I was living in’

    After a lifetime of being an outsider, Marilyn Manson, born Brian Warner, is coming to terms with his past. In a frank and soul-searching interview, he talks to Carole Cadwalladr about the loss of his mother, growing up angry – and why he’s ready for fatherhood

    The Marilyn Manson who emerges from the cuttings I read is a confusing, hard-to-pin-down figure. On the one hand he’s an American icon, a heavy metal rock’n’roll star who’s sold more than 50m albums. On the other he’s a middle-aged man who still hasn’t got over his goth stage. He’s an interesting and intelligent commentator on America’s twin obsessions of violence and celebrity (he was born Brian Warner; his name is a blend of Marilyn Monroe and the serial killer Charles Manson). And yet he’s also prone to writing the kind of songs you might expect from a narcissistic teenager with antisocial behaviour issues.

  • Morrissey “Felt Delight” Upon Seeing Bullfighter Gored

    In Morrissey’s 2014 song “The Bullfighter Dies,” a bullfighter dies: killed in the arena by a bull, naturally. And the crowd is delighted. Sings Moz: “Hooray! Hooray! The bullfighter dies! And nobody cries.” (If you want to lose your appetite for a week, watch this fan-made video for the song, in which the realities of [...]

  • 10 great emo songs by non-emo bands

    by Andrew Sacher

    Our friends Washed Up Emo launched this site where you can type in a band's name and get the "emo council"'s verdict on whether or not said band is emo. It's a fun/funny site with some indisputable ones (like American Football), some that will surely anger people (sorry Fall Out Boy fans), and of course some on-the-fencers (let the Jawbreaker arguments begin). Whether or not a band is emo is of course an Extremely Important Issue, and we wanted to have some fun with it and stir it up some more by putting together a list of 10 great songs by non-emo bands that are pretty damn emo. Credit where it's due: in coming up with the list, I googled a bit to see other opinions on how emo these bands are, and found that Popstache did a similar list in 2011, and it actually…
