Remembering Wayne Static: 10 Songs Everyone Should Know

The news of Wayne Static’s passing has shocked rock fans around the world, including every single member of the Under The Gun team.

You didn’t have to be a fan of industrial music to enjoy the art Wayne and his bandmates created, and truth be told, you did not even have to be that into rock. As long as you were able to listen to something with an open mind …

Dissecting “How About Now” And The World’s Ongoing Obsession With Drake

On Sunday night, something incredibly unexpected happened for the second time in two months: A track rumored to be off Drake’s upcoming album Views From The 6 found its way online through a source other than the rapper and his management team.

The song, titled “How About Now,” was first uploaded to the internet by a 17-year-old fan from Georgia, and as far as I’ve found, no explanation for how he came to be in possession of the unreleased material has surfaced, aside from a comment that it was an “exclusive leak.” It doesn’t really matter …

LIVE REVIEW: Riot Fest Denver (Day 1)

I missed Riot Fest 2013, and to be honest I spent the first six months after it took place kicking myself for having not attended. When the 2014 installment was unveiled, I knew this would be the year I finally made the trek. Chicago was my first choice, but due to some family related issues that came up in August I ultimately settled on booking a flight, hotel, and car for one in order to enjoy Riot Fest from the parking lot of Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO.

My journey began as great adventures do, with a far too …

Kind Of Like A Body Bag: 10 Years Of Underminded’s ‘Hail Unamerican’

After twenty-seven years on this planet I am convinced of two things being true without exception: Popcorn is always best when it’s freshly popped and every single person will stumble across a collection of albums in their life that change the way they view the world around them. This editorial is about the latter.

In the fall of 2008 I was attending college at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. My days were mostly made of class, naps, and countless hours spent updating my music blog. I thought I had heard every great record the alternative/Warped Tour scene had …

Henry Rollins Writes Editorial Against Suicide, References Robin Williams’ Death

Henry Rollins sure knows how to stir up some controversy, doesn’t he?

Rollins has been around for quite some time. He also happens to be a very opinionated individual. While fans usually find themselves agreeing with him on most issues, it seems that his recent editorial with LA Weekly may turn some people off. He wrote a rather lengthy opinion piece about suicide, and he pulls no punches. Referring to Robin Williams’ untimely passing, as well as some people he knew personally, he states that he can’t understand why someone who has kids to think of would choose to end …

‘Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle’ 10 Years Later: Still High After All This Time

In the summer of 2004 I was seventeen and living a life that could best be described as straight edge. It’s not that I lived in a world thriving with drugs and alcohol that I fought daily to avoid. On the contrary, I came up in a modest, middle class household in a tiny rural town with a population well below 5,000 people. I didn’t do drugs, but I also had no idea where to find them if I had any desire to try them in the first place. Everything I knew about weed and the effects it had on …
