The AV Club has a long form article series about punk in the 90's, and today's article is about the year 1997. Bands discussed include a pre-fame Jimmy Eat World, a Glen Danzig-less Misfits and, of course, Blink-182. Good lunch time reading, for sure.
In 1997—as I was reminded the hard way at the Blink-182/Jimmy Eat World show at the Mercury—much of the punk scene was still fragmented, confused, and resistant to new things. Not for long, though. And a newfound willingness to evolve was about to hit the punk scene in an earth-shaking way.

Our interview with Boys On The Radio can be found here, the new project from Lovedrug's Michael Shepard.
I would say what balanced out Lovedrug, as far as the writing was concerned, was the other guys in Lovedrug were very much more into the indie side of music, the cooler, underground music. I was always kind of the pop guy who brought some of the hookier stuff to the music. So when I sat down to do a record by myself, essentially I’m writing pop songs. I’ve been going through this huge ‘80s thing lately. I was largely influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, stuff like that that I grew up loving, kind of writing from a modern standpoint but with a little bit of that...

Billboard is reporting that Spotify is finalizing a deal with Sprint to bundle their on-demand music service with Sprint family plans.
Mobile plan bundling is generally believed to be the Holy Grail for taking on-demand music services to mainstream users in the U.S. and Europe as the right kind of plan can make paying for music seamless – similar to how consumers pay for premium networks on their cable TV bills.

Harmonix has said they're planning to bring back Rock Band for the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.
He prefaced his talk this morning by saying he would not announce a Rock Band 4 or Dance Central 4 and he did not say if these games were in fact in development in any way. However, he stressed that both franchises are "near and dear" to Harmonix. He went on to say that the studio plans to bring these franchises to the "coming console cycle" "at some point" and with "guns blazing."

Munchies talked with Mark Trombino about his new life in the donut shop world.
My music career has been in decline for like ten years now. Music as a business is changing. I had to make a decision of whether to try something new. And I had this idea for a donut shop for years, so I thought I’d try it, even though it was something out of my comfort zone. It wasn’t that I love donuts so much or have a passion for donuts. I just had an idea in my mind that I thought was so good that I didn’t want to see anyone else do it. It was the idea of having a donut shop where you can do things to-order, kind of like a yogurt shop. And I just thought that I could do it.

Nirvana's Krist Novoselic wrote a blog about the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I am so happy about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame event and how it went so well. Earlier that week there were three long days of rehearsals in NYC. I feel we conjured the spirit of the band, and we could not have done that alone. This, for me, is a bittersweet notion as we all miss Kurt so much. But considering we were inducted, the show had to go on. Joan Jett was first on my list to be out front. I spoke to Dave about it and he ran with the idea of having all women lead. We felt that would be a good tribute to Kurt and what Nirvana was about.

It was a good balance of females as...
