Million Juggalo March to take Place in Washington D.C. Next Year

Within the past 5 years the FBI has classified Juggalos as a loosely organized hybrid gang. I think who ever classified them as such has watched “The Warriors” one too many times because there may be some confusion as to what gangs are. Upon hearing of this Lyrical Scholars, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, launched a Federal Lawsuit against the US Department of Justice.

That brings us to the present, every year Juggalos flock to what is known as “The Gathering of the Juggalos” in which fans of Insane Clown Posse flock to a certain venue and spend their time drinking Faygo,watching wrestling,enjoying music, and generally having a good time, this was the perfect venue for Violent J to announce his plans for next year stating that “In 2017, the weekend of September 17th, we need you,We’re gonna do a f******g march on Washington. They call the Juggalo World a movement, right? Well, let’s move!”

Who knows what the future of Washington DC will hold,the only thing that is certain is that Juggalos are coming and the streets will be sticky with the over flowing elixirs of Faygo.

This Band Attempts to Recreate OK Go’s style of Single Take Music Videos

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then satire must be like writing a Secret Admirer Note and slipping it in someone’s mailbox. While it may not be as extravagant (depending on who you ask, I for one think it will sweep the VMA’s) as OK Go’s choreographed vids. The band known as AJJ supposedly took 6 months to make and produce this video, that you can learn about as the music video includes a making of segment after the actual music video.

Fall Out Boy may have created the most Funny thing to come out of the upcoming Ghostbusters Film

While Patrick Stump may not be afraid of what I can only assume are ghosts (or maybe it’s the critics for this song). I’m more than afraid of this reboot of the original Ghostbusters theme. It’s all over the place and has some weird rhythm to it. Not content at just making some schlocky EDM version of the song, no now the new movie has given us a full blown reboot with Fallout Boy and a verse featuring Missy Elliot.

Listen if you dare,you might be in for a scare.




New Green Day Album is in the Works!

The band’s long-time publicist Brian Bumbery confirms to Newsweek  that Green Day are in fact in the process of recording their 12th Studio Album. There’s no word yet when the album will be finished or when it will be released.

Hopefully it will be sometime this year, as it marks the band’s 30 Year Anniversary of first forming,way back in 1986.

Freddie Mercury’s Talent now has a Scientific Backing

There should have never been any doubt in anybody’s mind that Freddie Mercury has one of the most recognizable voices in all of music, among being one of THE most talented singers in the business back when he was touring and producing records, but with as with any greats in any field you have doubters saying “Oh he’s not that good.” or “I’ve heard better.”

Well thanks to Science you can tell those people that they’re wrong or that they should probably go and listen to something other than Bohemian Rhapsody. According to Scientists Freddie Mercury could modulate his voice to make himself sound both smooth and rough on cue — possible because of his vibrato frequency. A team of researchers studied Mercury’s voice, using sound recordings of his past performances and interviews in their analysis.

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.

Ringo Starr mostly know for his small stint as the Drummer for a band some may remember called “The Beatles” has taken a stand alongside other musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, for North Carolina’s HB2 or what most know as the “Bathroom Bill”.

The Beatles drummer called off the All Starr Band’s June 18th concert at Cary, North Carolina’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre over the bill, which discriminates against transgender people and the LGBT community. “I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love,” Starr said in a statement. “How sad that they feel that this group of people cannot be defended.”

Starr also called upon his fans to fight the “bigotry” and “support organizations that are fighting to overturn this law in whatever way we can.” “As Canned Heat sang, ‘Let’s work together,'” Starr said in conclusion. “And the Beatles said, ‘All you need is love.'”
