You can see how much it would cost to book your favorite scene bands for a festival - Fall Out Boy, All Time low and others - here. Godsmack pulling in nearly 200K, good for them!

Note: These figures are indeed in Australian dollars. The current conversion rate is 1 AUD to .70 USD

In what is already the most bizarre story of the year to date, B.O.B, noted "flat earth" conspiracy theorist, has released a diss track directed at Neil Degrasse Tyson called "Flatline." B.O.B also shouts out a well-known Holocaust denier as well in the track. This story gets more and more depressing as I read more into it. The education system has seriously failed him. Hit the replies to listen to this trainwreck if you dare.

Now that the dust has finally settled from all of the 2015 EOTY coverage, we can surge full speed into the next stage of the annual music cycle: speculating about our most anticipated albums of 2016. I love this time of year, because it gives us all a chance to survey the musical landscape of the coming months and highlight spots on the horizon to look forward to. Here, the AbsolutePunk.net staff have put together a list of some of the albums that we are most looking forward to this year, and from heavyweight favorites (Kanye West, Brand New) to lesser-known artists poised to have huge years (Aubrie Sellers, Pinegrove), we believe our favorite records of 2016 are somewhere on ...

From The New York Times:
The National Security Agency’s ability to spy on vast quantities of Internet traffic passing through the United States has relied on its extraordinary, decades-long partnership with a single company: the telecom giant AT&T. While it has been long known that American telecommunications companies worked closely with the spy agency, newly disclosed N.S.A. documents show that the relationship with AT&T has been considered unique and especially productive. One document described it as “highly collaborative,” while another lauded the company’s “extreme willingness to help.”
