Slayer/Megadeth Announce “American Carnage”

The winter tour features blocks of $10.00 tickets to reflect what they call 1991 prices. Let that roll around in your skull for a moment. Yes concert tickets have gone up that much. Anyway kudos to them.

PIL’s Future? It’s Up To You.

John Lydon says Public Image Limited will record if their comeback tour is successful. Sounds fair.

The Best? Really? Seriously?

Bonus Coverage. Let’s celebrate life!
