Watch Taking Back Sunday’s “There’s No ‘I’ In Team” Performance From the TAYF10 DVD

Taking Back Sunday have released the DVD version of “There’s No ‘I’ In Team” from their tour for the 10th anniversary of Tell All Your Friends. The footage is from their stop at New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom. You can watch the video below after the jump.

Steady camerawork and crisp audio in the video (thanks, technology) make for what I imagine is a nearly perfect live tour DVD. Although considering what a big hit this is for the band, the crowd is pretty calm. But then again, I think they’re all too squished together from the sellout show to …

MOVIE REVIEW: Nancy, Please

Movie: Nancy, Please
Director: Andrew Semans
Writer: Will Heinrich, Andrew Semans
Studio: Small Coup Films

A simple case of writers block spirals out of control in slow motion in this drama laced with black humor.

We all know what it is like to feel stuck. Whether it is a paper you are having trouble writing for school, a painting you do not know how to finish, or even where to start on fixing your old car, we have all been there at some point. At it’s core, this is what Nancy, Please is all about, and that makes it a …

Ke$ha Goes From Bad To Worse; Adds Pitbull To “Crazy Kids” Remix

Last week we brought you a stream of Ke$ha’s “Crazy Kids” remix featuring club-rap phenomenon Will.i.am. The track was, to put it lightly, panned across the board by critics and fans alike. People love Ke$ha’s care-free brand of music, but the addition of Will.i.am.’s referential musical styling was one no one wanted to hear. So what do you do when you superstar-studded remix flops? Simple. Release another version, only this time featuring someone people will [hopefully] want to hear.

The latest remix of “Crazy Kids” hit the net this morning and instead of Will.i.am boasts a new verse from …

Thursday Frontman Geoff Rickley Blogs ‘The Nine Circles of Vans Warped Tour’

Warped Tour is a unique experience for every individual at each and every date. Whether you’re a fan, band member, crew member, or person who managed to sneak in, your time at Warped is unquestionably different than everyone else who attends any given date. However, after you’ve attended or performed on the tour for a few years you begin to notice patterns, pitfalls, and other oddities. Sometimes those observations make their way to the public, and such is the case with this story.

Thursday frontman Geoff Rickley spent half of last Summer on Van’s Warped Tour performing acoustic. Though it …

MOVIE REVIEW: I Declare War

Film: I Declare War
Directors: Robert Wilson and Jason Lapeyre
Starring: Siam Yu, Gage Munroe

While having an original idea for a film is one thing, bringing that idea to life in a way that is viable to large audiences is a completely different story. I Declare War is one of the few films that succeeds in both these areas, though many may argue it’s not a film for everyone, and hopefully it finds the attention it deserves in the months to come.

When bringing an original idea to life, it’s important to cut to the chase as fast as …

WATCH: ‘Buried’ Meets ’127 Hours’ In The First Trailer for ‘Detour’

There have been a number of films in recent years telling the tale of an individual trapped in unfortunate circumstances with only their thoughts to keep them company. Of those, only a few have really been worth remembering longer than the time it took to walk from the cineplex to your vehicle. Director William Dickerson wants to add another must-see film to this subgenre, and later this year he’ll attempt to do just that with Detour.

So how do you take a genre that has been beaten into the ground (no pun intended) quite a bit in recent years? …

Axl Rose GnR Guns n Roses

WATCH: Guns N’ Roses – “Paradise City” From Upcoming 3D DVD ‘Appetite For Democracy’

There is so much heartbreak in writing this article. As someone who didn’t get into anything beyond radio music until his late teens (and I mean late), there is still a spot in my heart for Guns N’ Roses. Part of me wants (or wanted) to see them live, reunion lineup or no, just so I could have seen these songs sung live by a no-longer-fat Axl Rose.

Now, modern Guns N’ Roses have a live DVD coming up, filmed in 3D because apparently nothing says “music” like guitars coming towards you slightly while wearing glasses. They released …

UTG INTERVIEW: Breathe Carolina

Fans of Breathe Carolina have probably noticed a lack of updates from the band over the last few weeks. Other than a small run of promotion around their Punk Goes Pop 5 contribution, BC masterminds David Schmitt and Kyle Even have been locked away in various studios around the country working hard on what will eventually become their fourth studio album. We were able to catch up with the duo last night on the eve of a major appearance on the hit FUSE show Warped Roadies to discuss their role in the episode and what fans can expect from their …

Chief Keef In Jail For Violating Probation; Sentencing Hearing Scheduled For Thursday

Seventeen-year-old rapper Chief Keef is in jail this morning after a Cook County juvenile court judge in Illinois ruled that the rapper violated his probation during an interview with Pitchfork in Summer 2012, Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Keef (real name: Keith Cozart) was sentenced to 18 months of probation in January 2012 after he was convicted of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for pointing a gun at Chicago police officers. The terms of this probation required Keef to stay away from firearms, but last Summer the rapper was filmed holding and using guns at a New York firing range as …

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Frank Ocean Ft Outkast – “Pink Matter” (Remix)

A week after teasing the internet with his time in the studio, Big Boi has emerged from the booth to release his remix of Frank Ocean’s Andre 3000-assisted song, “Pink Matter.”

Serving as the first time Big Boi and Andre 3000 have been on a track together since Outkast last released an album, the remix of “Pink Matter” keeps the vibe relaxed and the wordplay subtle. Being a Frank Ocean track to begin with, this might not be exactly what fans of the duo were hoping to stumble across when Big and Andrew reunited, but I’ll be damned if it …

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Trinidad James Ft T.I., Young Jeezy & 2 Chainz – “All Gold Everything” (Remix)

The remix the hip hop world has been waiting for has finally arrived (sorta).

Trinidad James’ breakout single “All Gold Everything” has been steadily climbing the charts for weeks, and tonight the internet got its first taste of the official remix. Featuring T.I., Young Jeezy, and 2 Chainz, this is one of those rare gems of a redo that doesn’t feature a single verse from the original track. This is literally little more than three big names and a hook everyone is crazy for, but I’ll be damned if it is not enjoyable. You can stream, download, and enjoy an …

MOVIE REVIEW: John Dies At The End

Film: John Dies At The End
Director: Don Coscarelli

Cult films are quite a conundrum. Some of them are brilliant in every way but still somehow considered sub-par, while others are obviously lacking in many areas but considered genius anyways. In either case, cult movies end up with a large, and usually rabid, fan base ready to defend the film to the death. John Dies At The End will likely be no exception, as this film has “cult classic” written all over it.…
