I love black metal. I really do. But somebody needs to tell some of these artists that a good chunk of their names are completely illegible. Chicken scrawls do not make for a good band logo, at least in my opinion. But what it CAN do is turn pop artists names into something rather amusing. Below is a great picture that takes eleven well known mainstream pop artists and gives their name the good ole’ black metal chicken scrawl logo treatment. I managed to identify all of them without a problem although one of them did give me a run for my money for a second. Can you guess them all? READ MORE
This is the first mention I’ve made in the music section about the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear situation that is going on in Japan. It’s not because I’m an insensitive prick (okay, maybe just a little), but it’s because there wasn’t really much I could relate to the situation. But if we think about it, the people in that situation are dealing with horrors far worse than we can imagine. They’ve lost their homes, their families and their livelihood. But now, we can help.

Slash has debuted a new music video for the song, ‘Beautiful Dangerous’, which features Fergie (Black Eyed Peas) on vocals. The video was directed by Rich Lee (Eminem, Norah Jones, Michael Buble, Evanescence) and is based on a treatment written by Fergie. Here are some quotes from Slash and Fergie:
“Fergie came up with the idea for the ‘Beautiful Dangerous’ video. I knew that the way she had it set up it was going to be a showcase for her to be really fucking awesome,” said the legendary guitarist.
“Well, I really just wanted to stalk him. I thought it would be great. Just a normal day at the office really. I’m going to have my way with him [in the video]. You’ll have to watch,” said Fergie. ”I thoroughly enjoyed playing the psychotic character.”
“If you’re going to be stalked by anybody, there’s nobody better to be stalked by then Fergie,” added Slash.
