Phil Labonte from All That Remains says that homosexuals don't have "legit grievances" about slurs.
“Honestly, I think the only people that have a legit grievance when it comes to any racial slurs is the black community,” Labonte said. “I know the homosexual community has problems with it and I understand their hurt feelings. But homosexuals were never property. They’ve had a rough time and I’m not trying to minimize that, but I think the black community has a whole lot more room to be upset about a word than the LGBT community.

The mashup artist Pogo went on a pretty nasty misogynistic rant over the weekeend. He's since deleted the posts and called it an "experiment."
I’ve always found that the more I treat a woman like a child, the stronger the relationship, the better the sex and the more often it happens. Discipline, reprimand and complete indifference. I think the feminine woman craves the attributes of a firm father in the man she enters a relationship with. The more I realize it, the more I see modern feminism in a different light – it could well be little more than the collective feminine cry for drama and childlike retaliation.

Gene Simmons believes those that are depressed should just kill themselves.
For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, 'I'm depressed. I live in Seattle.' Fuck you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I'm the guy who says 'Jump' when there's a guy on top of a building who says, 'That's it, I can't take it anymore. I'm going to jump.' Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fuck up, have some dignity and jump! You've got the crowd," Simmons said. "By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, 'I'm going to blow your fuckin' head off.' He'll go, 'Please don't.' It's true. He's not...

George Zimmerman, the infamously acquitted killer of Trayvon Martin, is looking for boxing opponents and rappers Game or DMX have both applied to fight him. Apparently, Zimmerman also wants to fight Kanye West for "beating up defenseless people." The irony is choking me.

Once upon a time, I respected Lil Wayne's skills as an artist. But now he's added the cherry to the shit sundae that is his current career - contributing a verse to new labelmate Paris Hilton's new single, "Good Time." You can witness the horror for yourself by checking out a clip of the song in the replies. The rapper actually sums up the entire situation fairly well in his verse's opening line "I'm fucked up/I can't tell you what's what."

The playing of “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” by Fall Out Boy during fireworks at the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival has fueled a 'debate'.
“When we arrived back at the hotel, we looked up the lyrics to see if it was really as bad as it sounds — and it was far worse," he said. "A song about murdering people, tying them up and burning them alive, and general violence."

I See Stars have started a website dedicated to "electronic hardcore music." I'm assuming this means "hardcore music where we don't actually play live" -- but I can't tell because I really don't care.
We aim to break the walls down between EDM and Hardcore cultures around the world. We believe these two worlds are far closer than meets the ear and eye, and use this opportunity as a platform for new ideas and music to flourish. We aim to retain the human element and live performance of music, while embracing the vast skill that DJs and producers around the world have used to revolutionize music forever.

Ronnie Radke has released another stellar rap song titled "What Up Earth?" This time around he discusses the struggles of having to raise himself as a child and if it hasn't become apparent yet, it didn't work out well. And if you missed it, Vice has written up a fantastic new piece about Ronnie and Falling In Reverse's new music video for "Alone." I highly suggest you take the time for this essential reading.

A site called RetiredArtists has popped up. Boasting musicians who have been in bands that were "signed and toured extensively, on labels ranging from Victory Records to Bridge 9 Records," the service offers discreet songwriting for the musically challenged.
What do we do? We make it easy for that guy who wants to sing in a metal, hardcore, punk or rock band (but doesn’t have the music-writing friend to help him) write songs. We also make it easy for someone struggling with writing their own music in a band get consistent by writing songs that they can learn, as theirs, and branch off from there.

M.I.A.'s new album, Matangi has been postponed until April due to "excess positivity."
From The InterviewIt's due in April, which is the Tamil new year-- April 15-- and I'm still working on it. I thought I'd finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like a couple of months ago. At the moment, I've been told it's too positive. So we're having a bit of an issue at the label. They're like, 'You need to darken it up a bit.' I don't know what it is but as soon as I work that out... I'm taking my time to decide what they mean. It's an interesting one for me. It's like, 'We just built you up as the public enemy no. 1, and now you're coming out with all this positive stuff.
