The Misfits have responded to Danzig's lawsuit.
In 1995, Misfits founding member Jerry Only secured the exclusive legal right to tour and record as the Misfits, and, in accordance with those legal rights, launched a licensing program through Cyclopian Music. At the same time, Glenn Anzalone—professionally known as Glenn Danzig (former co-founder and Misfits vocalist circa 1977 to 1983) —made clear that he wanted no public association with the Misfits or Cyclopian Music’s business endeavors.

Despite full knowledge of Cyclopian Music’s use of the Misfits’ name and logos for decades, Glenn Danzig curiously filed a lawsuit on April 3rd, 2014 seeking a portion of the proceeds from...

Courtney Love has confirmed she wrote the note found in Kurt Cobain's wallet.
"Obviously I wrote it – don't you guys understand sarcasm?" she said. She also disparaged the controversy the note stirred, especially amongst conspiracy theorists who continue to look for evidence that Love was directly involved in Cobain's death. "It endangers me, and it endangers [daughter] Frances," she said.

Bands that are fun loving and kind of chill are always talked about in conjunction with the seasons, which is bogus. Because really, the only thing less interesting than talking about the weather is writing about it, so we won't do that. Instead what we'll do is introduce you to the laid-back hazy-pop cool dudes in No Nets. Their new album, Affable & Ready For Small Talk drops on May 20th, but right here this very moment we have the organ-tinged, beautiful people indie grunge of "Bonnie Tyler." (It really is quite amazing how good I am at describing music in a way that is both simple and makes sense!) Take a listen in the replies and make sure to pick up the band's album when it's...

Vulfpeck from Los Angeles apparently wrote an album of entirely silent songs named Sleepify and uploaded it to Spotify's service. Encouraging their small fanbase to stream it while they slept, the band generated around $20,000 at $.007 a stream. The stunt was intended to fund a small stint of free shows, but the album has been removed and it's not clear if they'll receive the entire royalty check.

After talking with staff over the past few weeks, we realized that the "free music friday" posts we were doing weren't really working and hadn't become what we thought the feature could be when we started it all those years ago. So, we're sunsetting it and will be trying out some new features throughout the week instead. Hmmm, how about: free music wednesday! Basically, the idea is that a staff member will find one song/album/whatever that's available for free and write a little something about it on the homepage. That thread will then be open to anyone else that would like to share free (legal!) music with other listeners. Your band, your friends' band, whatever. And, on that note: this...

Future has released a video game based on his song "I Won" with Kanye West, a highlight from his new album Honest. The game is based around turning women into trophies by throwing chains at them. It is appalling.

Miss May I have released a second, longer statement about the passing of a fan at their concert.
Hey everyone, apologies for the radio silence these last couple of days. After what happened we've all taken some time to reflect but we had to speak up today to give our heartfelt thanks. First and foremost, to those who've reached out tooffer their sympathies or who've kept Alberto and his family in their thoughts and prayers. In particular to all those who donated to his family; after only a few days they have almost reached their fundraising goal. If you can spare any amount, no matter how small, it will be greatly appreciated. You can do so here.

We're also looking into an auction....

Need to know how to stop a wedding when your beloved is going to marry someone else? WikiHow has you covered. I think we found the end of the internet.
If you were not able to contact her before hand, and you are sure that you want to proceed, find out the location of the wedding. Unless you have been invited, you will have to find out where the wedding ceremony is to be held, and the exact time. Ask family members or mutual friends if it doesn't appear too suspicious, or perhaps check the wedding notices in the local newspaper.
