Jon has been fired from Refused. Messages from the band and Jon are in the replies.
I was fired from Refused a while ago. I wasn’t given a reasonable explanation and wasn’t even invited to sit down and talk about it, so I'm not completely sure why they decided to go on without me. We’ve always been better at punk rock than democratic processes and dealing with conflicts, so I guess I’m not too surprised it went down like this.

In honor of its 15th anniversary, you can read an oral history of Saves The Day's Through Being Cool on Wired.
At the time, the hardcore world was so anti-rock star. People said, “look at the album cover; you guys are selling out,” because it was this glossy image and we have our faces on there.

The New York Times looks at the career and reunion of Mineral (hey, nice AP.net shout out as well).
Yet late last year, Mr. Simpson surprised even himself by mulling a reunion to mark what would have been the band’s 20th anniversary. He had spoken very little with his former bandmates, the bassist Jeremy Gomez, the guitarist Scott McCarver and the drummer Gabriel Wiley, even though they all live in Austin. But after a few rehearsals, the band announced in May a series of reunion dates culminating in a hometown appearance at next weekend’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. In September, they played three sold-out nights at New York’s Bowery Ballroom and two dozen standing-room-only shows on both coasts.

Taylor Swift has removed her music from Spotify.
We love Taylor Swift, and our more than 40 million users love her even more – nearly 16 million of them have played her songs in the last 30 days, and she’s on over 19 million playlists. We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone. We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy. That’s why we pay nearly 70% of our revenue back to the music community.

PS – Taylor, we were both young when we first saw you, but now there’s more than 40 million of us who want...

There is nothing in this world like gypsy punk. Gogol Bordello played a sold-out show in Austin last night at Stubbs Amphitheater. Normally the crowd at this venue is kind of ass-holey, but last night everyone was singing, dancing, stomping, and as they say "thinking locally, and fucking globally". Check out some photos as well as a link to the full gallery below. ¡Viva Gogol!

In a new interview with The Fader, hip-hop producer Metro Boomin says that the final touches are being put on Metro Thuggin, his much anticipated collaboration with Young Thug, and that the project will be out soon.
It's really at the end of mixing now. Just fine tuning and making sure everything's perfect. Once you put it out, you can't go back, so it's just little things like that. It'll be out soon just for the simple fact that I don't want to keep people waiting. As a fan, I find that irritating. That's what helps me in my career: I know how to relate to people, knowing what they want. I'm still on the blogs, reading everything, downloading the songs. I already know how I used...

In a follow-up to the story posted earlier this year: The man who was arrested for posting lyrics to an Exodus song on Facebook has had all charges dropped.
Well, recently, the charges were dropped against Evans. Represented by the ACLU, Evans through an ACLU attorney stated "Evans is relieved that these very serious criminal charges have been dismissed, and he is grateful for all of the support he has received during this difficult time. A conviction on first-degree terroristic threatening could have landed Evans in jail for up to 10 years."

Lights has dropped Jian Ghomeshi as manager.
I posted comments about Jian Ghomeshi the day after he was dismissed by the CBC where I rushed to defend my manager of 12 years. I am now aware that my comments appear insensitive to those impacted and for that I am deeply sorry. This is to confirm that as of now I will be parting ways with Jian Ghomeshi as my manager.

I hope everyone can heal from this.
