Touché Amoré have released a statement regarding the controversy of the "Good Riddance/Fred Phelps" t-shirt.
Here we are years later, and the man has died. We got messages saying we should reprint the design, so we thought "we'll do an updated version and have the proceeds go to benefit what the man lived the last years of his life trying to dismantle.” We feel there is beautiful irony in selling an image of a bigot and using the profit towards achieving equality for exactly what they hated. Which is why all net profit (money earned after cost/printing) will be going to http://www.hrc.com

In a commercial that aired on NBA TV today, Lil B called out long-time foe Kevin Durant. This comes after Based God reignited their beef with a diss track called "Fuck KD", and which previously included him laying a curse on Durant after KD insulted the rapper. Check out the commercial in the replies (it's towards the end of the video).

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme echoed the comments made by Trent Reznor following the abrupt cutting off of their joint performance at the Grammy's. Homme, during a performance in Houston, said "Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammy's," and apparently unironically "Fuck everything, fuck the man." Watch the tirade in the replies and get off his lawn.

Madonna has apologized for calling her son the n-word on Instagram.
I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur.. I am not a racist. There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention... It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me.

Evanescence singer Amy Lee is reportedly suing Wind-Up Records for $1.5 million in unpaid royalties.

Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison says he did not quit the band. Frontman Corey Taylor, meanwhile, dispelled rumors of the band breaking up.
I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New...

Apparently at tonight's The Story So Far show in Houston tonight, a female fan jumped on stage and kissed Parker Cannon. That's not cool at all - that's actually what we call sexual assault. Let's respect the stage and respect the artists, please.

Tyler, the Creator isn't a fan of Drop Dead Clothing, the clothing line from Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oliver Sykes. The issue seems to be over a t-shirt that reads "kill people burn shit skip school" which is pretty damn close to the Tyler lyric, "kill people burn shit fuck school." Tyler's response to the shirt? I'm censoring it and taking it out of all caps: "That kid with radical lyrics on his shirt is some tumblr f*g fuck him don't use my shit pussy."

We recently posted about Oldies.com's vinyl clearance sale, but it appears most customers are only receiving partial orders, if anything at all. Customers received shipping confirmations with no notice of changed orders, receiving whatever pieces of their order the site could deliver on. It appears users are being refunded , or are in the process of being refunded, though many have not received any updates. Some customers seem pleased to receive their partial orders at the discount, while others have sworn never to purchase again - which side do you fall on?

Update: Oldies.com has released a statement about this whole ordeal. - DB

Monte Money, formerly of Escape the Fate, has released a statement. This is the most unintentionally hilarious thing I've read all day -- how is this band still a thing?
Over the past few weeks, I have become aware of the mis-truths being told by Craig Mabbitt over Twitter, Facebook, and various entertainment sites about my role with Escape the Fate. As ETF fans know, I spent many years of my life completely devoted to the band, and never worked harder at anything to achieve its success.”

“It is not easy to hear the false accusations that I ‘stranded’ the band or that me or my brother Michael are somehow completely to blame for every single thing that is going wrong with the...

Escape the Fate have cancelled their upcoming European tour dates, including their appearances on Warped Tour Europe. The band claims that it's due to vocalist Craig Mabbitt's girlfriend expecting to go into labor, but Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman says they're lying.
pulling out of the Europe shows has nothing to do with having a baby, tell the truth it will set U free. Shame on u 4 lying.

Would you like a tour? How about some drama before it even starts? Page Six is reporting that Drake has kicked Future off the upcoming Would You Like A Tour? over some off-the-record comments he made about Nothing Was The Same to Billboard. Now that he's allegedly off the tour, Future has decided to do the mature thing and sue Drake for $1.5 million.

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) is apparently not a fan of Jay Z. On a recent interview with CBC Radio 2's The Strombo Show, Homme talked about his experience at Jay Z's "Made In American" Festival and how he didn't like getting frisked by security or taking a picture with a bottle of champagne. You can listen to the entire interview in the replies.
"That guy's a kook, you know," Josh Homme said. "He has his security frisking the bands on the way in." When security asked to look through his bag, Homme threatened not to play the festival. "No one's ever done that," he said of his previous festival experiences. Then, of Jay Z, he said, "You shouldn't frisk my guys, you should fuck...

Fiona Apple has released a statement regarding the reports of her leaving the stage early during a recent set.
if it wouldn’t be too much trouble, if you could tweet to the twits who call themselves journalists(example Chris Martins of sit-and-Spin Magazine) that I FINISHED MY SET!!! I did my job, and they should do theirs too–They all miss the fact that there is a difference between the back-of-the-room-chatter that is simply annoying,–and the operatic drunken blather, or the heckling that is really just INTERRUPTING that makes it impossible for us to do our jobs. I hope your readers are already hip to the fact that they are consistently lied to… no apologies. -Fiona.

Allegedly, Fiona Apple is the latest performer to storm off a stage due to a rude audience.

Rock It Out! Blog over at Consequence of Sound recently interviewed Wavves backstage at their Lollapalooza after party at Chicago’s Empty Bottle...and it went terribly to say the least. During the interview, members of the band walked away, turned off mic sound, and more. Watch it in the replies.

Remember Bloodhound Gang? Of course you don't, but Russia's Minister of Culture has banned the group from performing in his fine country and the band were pelted with eggs shortly thereafter. Apparently, Russians frown on bands putting the Russian flag in their pants. Who knew.
From the articleStill, Russia’s minister of culture, Vladimir Medinsky, wrote on Twitter that “these idiots are not going to perform” in Russia, and that he had spoken with the local authorities to halt the concert.

Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens) has responded to the controversy surrounding the Polaroid Tour Package his band is offering.
keep in mind Polaroid film is super expensive, your getting the ticket to the show, you get front row over anyone else.. If you only want to pay general admission then just do that. However, if you do like the idea of doing all these things included.. It's ONLY 80 dollars.. I would never charge someone money for just a picture with me.. I try and do anything and everything for my fans.. I do in fact have a family, and that family needs to be fed.. So thanks for supporting us and helping me continue to tour.. Without you there is no us! Love you Kellin

Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes looks to have called out Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn for his $80 polaroid picture special.

Another Lana Del Rey demo has hit the internet and this time around she's taking shots at Lady Gaga. Jump to the replies to stream "So Legit."
Stefani you suck / I know you selling 20 million / Wish they could’ve seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg. / You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby / How the f*** is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy / You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe / How the f*** would you go switch it up and then replace me?

In response to the outrage towards its recent cover featuring terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Rolling Stone has added an editor's note to its online version of the story. Despite that, stores like Walgreens and CVS have banned the issue from appearing on its newsstands.

Rolling Stone recently made the poor decision to feature terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of its upcoming issue. Many are not pleased, including David Draiman, the vocalist for nu-metal band Disturbed. He took to the band's Facebook page to put the magazine on blast, which you can read in the replies.

The Weeknd released a video for a new song titled "Belong to the World" last night and was then promptly called out by Portishead member Geoff Barrow for using an uncleared Portishead sample. Barrow has since also commented that it "its got fuk all to do with money! As most of them are hiphop artist that are skint."

Tyler, The Creator is in hot water once again - this time for his Mountain Dew ad that was pulled due to its racist undertones. The ad has been called "arguably the most racist commercial in history" by scholar Dr. Boyce Watkins. You can view it in the replies.
