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
The New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys ‘NKOTBSB’ tour is already selling out all over the country and fans are going completely nuts. And let’s be honest, why shouldn’t they? When it comes to the numbers, both of these groups are at the top of the pop genre, regardless of how long it’s been since they were “popular”. Because of this renewed interest, the two groups are putting out an album that features five fan picked songs from each group AND a track where the two bands will collaborate on a new song, ‘Don’t Turn Out The Lights’. Also on the album will be the mash-up that NKOTBSB has performed a couple of times, most notably on New Years Eve and at the 2010 AMAs.
If you’re planning on keeping the ole’ boob tube set on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve ’11 for New Years, then here is what you can expect: Musical performances from Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, Ke$ha, Train, Taio Cruz, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Hudson, Willow Smith, Ne-Yo, Avril Lavigne, Drake, Jason Derulo, La Roux, Mike Posner, Natasha Bedingfield, and Far East Movement.
Lest we forget about this awesome tour, I’ve got some tour dates that were announced for the upcoming New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys run that you can check out after the jump. First announced by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, the two groups will play a handful of shows in mid-2011. Tickets go on sale starting next Friday. Here are some statements from the two groups:
It’s been officially announced that New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys will be doing a full tour together. The first performance will be at the American Music Awards, which will be televised Nov. 21st. No tour dates have been released yet, but for more information about the tour, go here. Let’s not forget how awesome Donnie Wahlberg was in the Saw movies as well as Dead Silence.
