The Hell's new shirt cracks me up.

Ever think guitarists make some funny faces while they're jamming out a killer solo? So does this hero named Michael who started Slug Solos. If you can't already tell what the site is, he's replaced guitars with giant slugs and the outcome is hilarious.

Buzzfeed has a "then and now" gallery of the pop-punk heartthrobs.
Jason Tate on 08/06/14 - 11:08 AM
Aux.tv looks at 26 (because the stats say you get more clicks if you use weird numbers like this) pop-punk bands that are "somehow" still around. Lots of hilarious digs at pop-punk being like Trix cereal: just for kids. A lot of this relates well with topics in the last two episodes of our podcast. (I'll be honest, even I didn't even remember The Ataris were still around.)
New Jersey-based Midtown were named accurately: Initially signed to Drive-Thru, they cut three albums—the most memorable being 2002′s Living Well is the Best Revenge—of completely middling pop-punk. It was serviceable if forgettable side-stage-of-the-Warped-Tour fare; singer Gabe Saporta, in fact, would get more...

Guys, emboldened by a podcast that answers the "why is this news?" question, I'm going full Friday ... hit the replies to see a video compilation of every single time Samuel L. Jackson utters "motherfucker" in his movies.

Buzzfeed doesn't like the twitter account I recommended a few weeks back called "SavedYouAClick" -- I'm choking on crocodile tears.
Instead, @SavedYouAClick feels less like a delight than it does an insecure college freshman delighting in beating a professor to the punch line of her own lecture. Other times, it feels like a petulant 8-year-old unfairly answering simple questions posed to a younger sibling by Mom.

TMZ has a video of DMX going nuts while riding a slingshot attraction at an amusement park. The man is apparently incapable of controlling his trademark grunts, and it is amazing.

Remember that time people thought Steven Spielberg killed a real dinosaur? Happy Friday everyone.

Since it's officially Monday on the east coast, I can't think of a better way to start the week. We're all products of the social media age, so we know what it's like to be bombarded with concert invites, band spam and unrealistic expectations from local bands. Jump to the replies to watch a hilarious video that pretty much sums up most of our lives working in the music industy.

Dr. David Glowacki, a leading US scientist and research fellow at the Royal Society in London, was booted from the Bristol Old Vic after he tried to crowdsurf during Handel's "Messiah."
Dr Glowacki has attacked the decision to force him to leave the concert by saying: ‘Classical music, trying to seem cool and less stuffy, reeks of some sort of fossilised art form undergoing a midlife crisis.’

Baseball is a proud sport, one with almost unlimited tradition and the sport that, perhaps, is most dear to America's heart. 50 Cent's ceremonial first pitch at last night's New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game was neither proud nor traditional, but the Internet will hold it dear to its heart for many moons to come. Put blankly, you couldn't throw a baseball this poorly if you tried your hardest. It's in the replies, of course, where these sorts of things belong.

The moment you've been waiting for is here: watch the drum-off between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith in the replies. The Red Hot Chili Peppers show up for a surprise performance.

Low budget beasts is my favorite thing today.

Head to the replies to watch The Lonely Island's music video for "Hugs" featuring Pharrell.
Alex DiVincenzo on 05/18/14 - 08:46 PM
Ok, not really - but the two did have some fun on twitter yesterday, with Regis poking fun at Raekwon's nickname of "the Chef" with #DownWithTheWu. Then Rae asked "Uncle Regis" for a turkey burger. I like to imagine a world where these two have the highest rated morning talk show in the country.

Avril Lavigne's fans in Brazil paid the equivalent of about $360 USD to take pictures with the singer at arm's length. They were apparently explicitly instructed to not touch Avril. Check out the results in the replies, because man oh man are they hilariously, delightfully awkward.

Don't need much but the headline here. Happy Friday!
Since, cash is at a low, and my tears are at a high, I'm trading a water-bottle filled with my own tears for a ticket to go see American Football. These tears are 100% authentic, and are produced from myself by listening to only American Football and other Mike Kinsella projects (Owen, Joan of Arc, Their / They're / There, Owls, Cap N' Jazz etc.) Serious inquiries only.

What do the Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," the Baha Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" and Nickelback's "Rockstar" all have in common? They are all music songs and they are all on this page. Please, let us discuss in the replies.

Ok, not really ... but Drake did appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a special segment of "I Witness News." He dons a beard and wig before taking to the street to talk to people about, you guessed it, Drake. He accuses himself of peeing in Baby Gap and refusing to acknowledge white sports players at the Espys, which he's hosting later this year. Full video is in the replies.

Does anyone remember that band Off By One? I was clearing out my iTunes today and came across that album. I once painted houses all summer (worst job ever by the way) to save up enough money to buy albums like this.

To complete Beyoncé's aggressive cultural takeover, there is now a soundboard based on her self-titled album from last year. It's flawless.

Vulture posted an interesting interview with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart about his tenure as a bartender at New Jersey punk club City Gardens.
There was some tremendous bands that played there, and some great shows. X did a great show. Gibby from Butthole Surfers nearly burned the place down. Anybody from Joan Jett to Agnostic Front and GBH and GWAR. You know, Black Flag and Bad Brains. Bad Brains was like the house band, they were there like every six weeks. They were amazing. The Chili Peppers. It was just an incredible and vibrant scene and there was nothing else like it.

Want to see something to make your day? Check out Dave Chappelle stage diving and crowd surfing at a Skrillex show in the replies. He shows up at about 3:05.

Hello, again. For those of you who don't know, I'm Cody, I'm the comedy staff member around here. I was for a little bit of last year, until I took a bit of a sabbatical to deal with my own comedic career. But I'm back now, though, albeit in a slightly lesser manner. News posting will be slim, unless I feel like they're topics/issues that definitely need to be seen by a larger audience. Gone completely are my album reviews, which shouldn't be too missed, since I only did like five. Coming back in full force, however, are my comedian interviews. I'm making time to fit these into my schedule, because 1.) I love learning from comedians, and 2.) Their unique perspectives almost always...

Hey, everyone. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me on the news page. I'll deal with that in the morning with some new comedy content for you all. For now, though, I felt this article was the right way to end my sabbatical. Immense social everything site reddit is having a little bit of an internal struggle between their massive default subreddit /r/funny, which is a fairly self-explanatory name (though if you look at its content, it's really not) and the subreddit /r/standupshots, which features comedians posting their own material in easy-to-read imgur format. While not one of the biggest communities on the site, /r/standupshots is one of the most dedicated, but the...

Tickets for Jimmy Pardo's annual 12-hour podcast extravaganza The Pardcast-A-Thon have gone on sale. For a measly 10 bucks, you get half a day of the Never Not Funny gang, a plethora of fantastic guests, and as always, all proceeds go to Smile Train.

At the Chicago date of the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, Dave Chappelle had quite a bit to say about the crowd he had to deal with a few days prior in Hartford, CT (which can be read about here for those of you unaware). Head to the replies for the audio.

Update: Pedro Segarra, mayor of Hartford, CT, has issued a response to Chappelle's lashings out.

Head over to TeamCoco's website to watch Rory Scovel performing what may very well be the fanciest set in the history of late-night stand-up comedy.
