Because we haven't heard a lot from Justin Timberlake lately, head to the replies to watch the superstar take five shots of tequila over the course of a 10-minute stretch on the Jonathan Ross Show, a British late-night program. It should be noted that he's playing three holes of mini-golf at the same time.

Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.

Rolling Stone have posted their "100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time" list.
A note on how we made the list: Albums got docked points if the artist went on to far greater achievements (which is why Please, Please Me and Greetings from Asbury Park, great as they are, didn't made the top ten); conversely, we gave a little extra recognition to great debut albums that the artist never matched (hello, Is This It and Illmatic!). We also skipped solo debuts by artists who were already in well-known bands, which is why you wonít see John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band or Paul Simon. We focused, instead, on debuts that gave you the thrill of an act arriving fully-formed, ready to reinvent the world...

Under The Gun wrote a fantastic piece about the legacy of My Chemical Romance. Read it here.
Humanism is something that lingered throughout the bandís work. I could write entire dissertations on Revenge, my favourite album, which for all its frenzied, explosive pace is at heart a response to the loss of the Waysí grandmother. The lyrics, music and imagery on that album seared right into my soul as soon as I heard it Ė itís like hearing a comic book on record, replete with all the atmospheric intensity and noir sophistication of visceral art. For me, nothing will ever top the guttural, breathtaking verse at the end of my favourite song, ďItís Not A Fashion Statement, Itís A Fucking...

Both Fireworks and Transit members have tweeted pretty damning statements about the Empire venue in Springfield, VA. From what we've been able to piece together, it looks like the promoter used hateful speech -- and then shit hit the fan. We've reached out to try and find out exactly what happened.

Update: A statement about everything that happened, from Floyd James, can be found here.

Remember the Death Cab For Cutie The Barsuk Years LP boxset you could have pre-order last winter? Well, after numerous delays, the sets have started to arrive at people's door steps. Sounds great, right? Well, it seems like more than half of the records in the set were mislabeled. Yikes. While no information or statement from Artist in Residence about the mishap has come forward yet, we'll be sure to update you on the situation when we can.

PropertyOfZack recently sat down with James Dewees (Reggie and the Full Effect) and they talked about RATFE, MCR, and a joint EP with Matt Pryor on Equal Vision.
We have an EP coming out on Equal Vision Records soon. Itís like three songs. Heís happy and Iím really happy with it. When we started playing together again, it came about by me sending him demo songs. Since Iíve been home Iíve just been in the basement writing music. Ideas just keep pouring out. Some of them donít sound Reggie enough to be Reggie, so Iíd send them to Matt. Heíd send them back with vocals that would blow me away.
