As if keeping up with today's bands weren't hard enough, the Internet has led to the unearthing and documentation of virtually every garage, indie, punk, rockabilly, hardcore, ska, swing, you-name-it-core group that ever made -- or even thought about making -- a record.
While it's fun to imagine a bunch of pro-Reagan punks running amok in Southern California circa the Great Communicator's "Morning in America" speech, this quartet is absolutely 100 percent fictitious. In 1982, the on
A lot has changed since Feb. 1, 1994, the day a little-known Berkley punk band called Green Day released 'Dookie,' the album that would make them superstars. That holds for the group -- now stadium gods th
It's useless to complain about MTV's mindless reality programming. The kids want their 'Teen Mom' and their 'Catfish,' and cranky pre-millenials nostalgic for Kennedy and sweet, refreshing 'Liquid Television' need to concede defeat. The network will never be good again. But that doesn't mean we can't reminisce, and if there's one thing worth remembering, it's 'The Real World: Los Angeles.'
Evolution is natural, and diversity is a beautiful thing, but neither have served the Warped Tour particularly well. Since launching in 1995, this initially punk-centric festival has expanded into emo, EDM, pop, hip-hop and whatever else organizers can cram onto one of the nine-dozen branded stages, and while that may reflect the diverse listening habits of today's concertgoers, Warped has lost a lot of its identity.

Recently, Oasis scored their first hit in years, a viral video compilation of Noel Gallagher's snittiest bits of commentary from the band's 'Time Flies' DVD. The gist: Gallagher hates making videos ("I f---ing hate making videos") and rates most directors as pretentious and devoid of creativity. ("If you need four guys to walk around in slow motion, we were the best of that.") But at least one good thing came of Oasis begrudged willingness to step in front of the camera.
The xx do a fantastic version of Aaliyah’s 1997 single ‘Hot Like Fire.’ It’s an aching slow jam about delayed sexual gratification, and backed by sparse, echoing guitar and bass that can truly be said to throb, Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim sing with hushed anticipation about how great it’ll be to finally get each other’s skinny jeans off.
