Rock On The Range Festival Announces Full Lineup

It’s only January, but it feels like festival season is already in full swing, with lineup announcements coming every day from events across the country and all over the musical spectrum. Whatever your tastes, there is probably a festival for you to attend this spring and summer, and if hard rock is more your speed than indie and pop, that festival is Rock On The Range. The lineup for the 2014 edition, which now runs for three full days in May, was announced this morning, with Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, and Kid Rock at the top of the …


Mysterious Guns N’ Roses Song “Going Down” Leaks, Stream Available

Like it or not, the Guns N’ Roses most people picture when someone mentions the band’s name is no more. Those long-haired stung out days of glory have long passed, leaving a group of random musicians filling in roles while fronted by an Axl Rose that looks nothing like that man who took us to “Paradise City.” Chinese Democracy let most of the world down so much many assumed the group would never recover, but this morning a potentially new song is making the rounds online that gives hope G N’ R may soon be releasing new music.

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 …

Bad Religion

REVIEW: Bad Religion – True North

Artist: Bad Religion
Album: True North
Genre: Punk
Label: Epitaph

It’s a rainy Saturday morning in March of 2012, and I’m with my now-girlfriend and we’re on the way to the National Mall in Washington DC.  We’re not going to soak in the landscapes, the monuments, or the museums. Why were we there? Bad Religion. Bad Religion has been a band since 1979, and people were still coming out in droves to see them. While my knowledge of Bad Religion was cursory, I found myself completely enthralled by the performance they put on. Hell, I even circle-pitted with a …


Guns ‘n’ Roses For Las Vegas Residency

Axl Rose and company shall be taking up residence beneath the gaudy lights of Las Vegas this coming October, it seems. The beleaguered frontman shall take time out of his busy schedule of being robbed and objectifying women to play a series of shows at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with the current incarnation of Guns ‘n’ Roses. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 17, with prices starting at $45. A full list of dates can be found after the jump. Opinions as to Rose’s continuing relevance (or lack thereof) welcome.…


Axl Rose Falls On Stage Because He Is Overwhelmingly Coordinated

There’s something about Axl Rose that really rubs me the wrong way. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s his inability to quit, maybe it’s the fact that he looks terrifying and I want to stop posting his picture. I know what you’re thinking: “Under the Gun Review, stop posting news about him then!” That would be the logical conclusion that any rational website would make. However in our offices we praise Nicolas Cage as the next coming of the messiah, so their must be something a little off about us.

In this gem of a video we get …


Axl Rose Robbed of Necklaces Worth $200,000, Nobody Else Decides to Care

Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses at a recent show in Paris was robbed of 3 necklaces that in total was worth around $200,000, reports the NY Daily News. I want you to look at that number again. $200,000. That’s what my overpriced school is trying to charge me to learn for four years. That’s a small house. That’s more than a lot of people make in a year. And he wears that around his neck. And guess what? I really don’t care that they were stolen. And here’s why:

I’m writing this from a purely cynical “I do …


Guns N’ Roses Request 20 Young Female Models To Fill The Front Row At An Upcoming Gig

Axl Rose has never been one to play it tame, and his latest shenanigans are no different.

According to an article on DailyRecord, Guns N’ Roses have requested 20 beautiful female models, ages 19-23, be placed in the front row for the band’s upcoming performance in Glasgow.

That’s right: Models, not fans, come first.

Apparently, someone from GnR hired All Talent – The Sonia Scott Agency – to recruit the girls. As compensation for appearing at the gig, the girls will be granted backstage access after the concert, as well as the opportunity to party with the band.

History Lesson

MUSIC HISTORY CLASS: Cocaine, Heroin, and Backing Tracks


On this day in in 1995, Stone Temple Pilots eccentric lead singer, Scott Weiland, was arrest in Pasadena, California on  cocaine and heroin possession charges. It was the first of his several drug-related arrests. Weiland claims that he was first introduced to heroin when vocalist Gibby Haynes gave Weiland some of the drug while Stone Temple Pilots was on tour with Hayne’s Butthole Surfers (oh…the band names in the 1990s). Haynes denies Weiland’s allegations.…
