Is Prince’s Super Bowl Halftime Show The Best Of All Time?

You probably remember exactly where you were for Super Bowl XLI in 2007.

The Bears were in it (and sadly lost), Devin Hester became the only player in NFL history to return the opening kickoff for a touchdown and Prince performed a set at half time that was truly larger-than-life.

But was it the greatest Super Bowl halftime show of all time?

Re-watch the iconic performance, in the rain no less, and let us know what you think.

Metallica Manager says Youtube is killing the Music Industry

In an Interview with BBC Peter Mensch described Youtube as “The Devil” going so far as to say that if someone doesn’t do something about it,that the Music Industry as we know it is screwed.

Mensch was talking to BBC during their documentary “The Buisness of Music” His comments were backed up by the 2016 International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) annual report, which tells of a widening “value gap” between the volume of music consumed on free web services and the amount of revenue they generate for the industry.

The BBC reports that 900 million consumers on sites like YouTube and Soundcloud resulted in revenue of £447m in 2015, while the world’s 68 million paying music subscribers generated about £1.4bn.

But before any of that happened Flea played the National Anthem on the Bass

By himself,and it went over just about as well as you would think it would.

Some fans posted on Twitter about how it was possibly THE worst rendition of The National Anthem to which I reply “Never forget Rosanne Barr”

Japanese Metal Band BABYMETAL performed on The Late Show last night

Let’s start off with some basic knowledge of what most people know comes from Japan, Sony products including but not limited to the Playstation,TV’s,and other media devices,different car manufacturers,Godzilla and the TOHO company,anime,The Bullet Train,Sushi, and probably a lot more things that I’m sure you can think of, but now they’re also producing what may be the most confusing form of Metal that I’ve ever heard. BABYMETAL is an Idol group,and Idol groups are usually people fans are supposed to look up to as good role models and have a good public image.

These things don’t necessarily  come to mind when the word Metal is brought up, the first thing that comes up are over indulging in alcohol,drugs,and over all general not role model behaviors (I’m not judging what you consider role model behavior rather I’m saying what the general public considers role model behavior, you do you.) but enough about who views what as acceptable and what not, the point is it seems contradictory for a Metal band to be role models, I mean most of the time they lead larger than life lifestyles.  I know what you’re thinking, “Enough rambling and show me what the hell you’re talking about!” Well, okay but, it’s best to go into this with an open mind.




See? Crazy right? There’s so much to process here,it’s a song in what I can only assume is about wanting to get chocolate but at the same time we’re getting these crazy riffs and double bass beats. The whole thing is just a big contradiction in of itself really making me question if that’s what makes it work so well. Maybe it’s just the absurdity of it all,but isn’t that what Metals all about? Abstract aspects we’re not used to? It’s incredible is what it is.

BABYMETAL just released their 2nd Album “Metal Resistance” on April 1st and you can find out more about them here.

Finally a Political Party We Can ALL Get Behind

While Kanye is slated to run for President in 2020, Party Professor Andrew WK is looking to fix America NOW!

Andrew WK is setting up his own political party saying that it’s time for America to break away from the traditional two party system, because the more parties the better according to Andrew WK. The Party Party seeks to bring everyone closer together and get back to the people of the United States.

If that doesn’t sell you on the Party Party maybe hearing it from the Man himself can convince you.

Now is this some elaborate April Fool’s Prank? Probably not, as it seems pretty serious and Andrew WK has been known to do some crazy antics in the past, but only time will tell.

Now THIS is how you mourn

After a close friend or relative has passed away most people mourn in different ways,some crack jokes that aren’t meant to be cracked, some go into different habits from their normal routines,but in Ireland Brian O’Sullivan decided to go for something far more grand than that.  After losing his friend, he climbs atop the bar and gives a speech praising his pal for never being able to be forgotten, and what happens afterwards is damn near magical.

He leads the bar in singing Mr. Brightside, how can it get better than this? All the misery,sadness ,and feeling of loss gone for just a few minutes as you sing with friends and family celebrating the life of someone who is gone.

The Killers even caught wind of the video saying that if they ever needed a fill-in the would give Brian a call! How awesome is that?
