You remembe DINK..they had a#1 alt-dance hit hit with the bouncy, stuttering rap-rock song Green Mind back in 1994 and two other minor hits featured in before being dropped by Capitol Records.
Well, now the band it's crazy and brief run have been given the rock-doc treatment with Gangrene: The DINK Documentary
The film will be screened for free at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night at the Venice Cafe (163 W. Erie St, Kent).
Following the screening there will be a Q&A with the director and former members of DINK.To read more or comment...
It's that time again. Time for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation to make some folks and fans happy and piss off others.
The induction ceremony will be taking place in Cleveland this year, so we've got that going for us and if Nine Inch Nails' get inducted it'll be a homecoming trip for Trent Reznor who got his start in Cleveland.
Here are the 2015 Rock Hall Nominees...

I was never a fan of Daughtry's brand of grunge-lite, but wow...his new album Baptizm sounds like someone trying desperately to find a new sound because his old sound ain't popular anymore. So now he sounds like a 3rdGen-grunge singer wishing he was in Imagine Dragons.
Check out the video below....if you like it...go see them..I'm sure they'd appreciate it.

I saw Seger & TSBB on their last trip to The Q back in '07 (I think) and it was a good show. Seger's signature rasp is still quite strong and there were a few surviving classic -lineup Silver Bullet Band members alongside some new blood.
Check out the new single Detroit Made at the bottom..Now that he's a classic rock revivalist, I'm sure Kid Rock is already figuring out how to rewrite/copy the tune for his next (probably gold selling) attempt at transforming into Kid Seger.

So this whole U2 thing has been interesting.
About 500 Million folks in 119 countries around the world picked up their Apple dependent devices to discover U2's new surprise album Songs of Innocence downloaded and ready to go whether they wanted the album or not.
Apple says more than 33 million definitely did want the album while many other people wanted to punch the ghost of Steve Jobs and Bono in the face for sticking an unwanted batch of songs on their machines without permission and making it, (at least initially), difficult to remove because hey, it's a free U2 album who wouldn't want it?
If you're an artist who is not a multi-millionaire rock icon, the giving music away for free concept is already a tough but increasingly frequent pill to swallow, especially knowing that U2 got pizz-aid handsomely (estimates run from $30-$100 million), not to mention the bump in sales for the band's back catalog with an estimated 24 of the band's past albums including massive hits Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby reentering the Billboard Top 20 last week (coincidentally Bob Marley's Legend is currently in the Billboard 200 Top 5, raising its total to 293 weeks on a Billboard chart!).To read more or comment...
