Kendrick Lamar Debuts Untitled New Song On ‘Colbert Report’

Stephen Colbert is in the midst of wrapping up his long-running and highly successful Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, and last night he asked Kendrick Lamar to help him say goodbye.

Serving as the final musical guest The Colbert Report will ever host, K. Dot partook in a short conversation with Stephen before surprising the audience, as well as viewers at home, with the world premiere of a brand new song. The track has no title, or if it does that information has not been made public, but the vibes you get when it plays fit well with …

Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos Performs “Sleepyhead” Acoustic in His Bed

Passion Pit have been silent throughout 2014, likely at work on a new album, but today we get to see frontman Michael Angelakos singing once again. The band’s creator took to YouTube today to share an intimate acoustic rendition of their hit song “Sleepyhead” — from his very own bed.

The Manners cut gets such a stylish reveal thanks to MyMusicRx’s Bedstock event, a mission to make the world’s first ongoing music festival where artists use their bedrooms as makeshift venues. The new online festival hopes to deliver “the healing power of music” to kids and teens while raising …

Must See: Watch Attila Perform In A Michigan Backyard In 2008

Everyone has to start somewhere, and for many bands that means playing any show that is willing to have you. Sometimes that means you get to open for cool headliners, but more often than not it means opening a show with an oversized lineup or playing venues your favorite bands would never dare add to their own tour itineraries. This is a story about the latter.

In 2008, Attila were a baby band with breakdowns and bad attitudes to spare. They were far from the genre headliners they are today, and spent a lot of their time booking shows in …

WATCH: Dej Loaf Performs On Fallon

I have a confession to make: We recently dropped the ball on a hot hip-hop talent that has quickly begun making huge waves in the music industry. Dej Loaf is a Detroit emcee with a lot of passion for music, and her sound is quickly setting her apart from others on the rise. We missed her recent mixtape release, but we are making it a point to never miss another big headline, starting with her recent TV debut.

Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, Dej Loaf made her television debut last night with a performance of her popular mixtape …

Lorde Just Covered Jeremih’s Hit Single “Don’t Tell Em” (And It’s Amazing)

Oh, Lorde. I once thought our love affair with your music was a fleeting burst of hormones and originality, but over the last year you have made it abundantly clear that you will be a staple of music for many years to come. You do what you please when you want, and as far as I can tell no one tries to stop you. Why should they? You’re the golden calf of pop music!

Whether you agree with the paragraph above or not, I think we can all agree Lorde is as much of pop culture today as she was …

Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy Perform “Immortals” On Kimmel

Fall Out Boy divided fans with the release of their Big Hero 6 contribution “Immortals,” but the Chicago rock group are pressing forward with their promotional efforts as if everything is fine. After all, that sweet Disney money can solve a lot of problems. It might not buy back old fans, but if you can corner the youth market then do us old folks really matter?

Last night, Fall Out Boy took “Immortals” to Jimmy Kimmel’s late night TV show. The group performed in front of a packed club, who seemed to question why the band needed so …

Dave Chappelle Returns To Hartford, CT With OddBall Comedy Festival (Video)

Just over a year ago we ran a story about comedian Dave Chappelle having a meltdown in Hartford, CT while appearing on the inaugural Oddball Comedy Festival. It was an embarrassing moment for the comedian, and in the weeks that followed the former Comedy Central star was thrown through the ringer from various members of the press. No one knew if Chappelle would ever return to the tour again, let alone the city where his meltdown occurred, but over this past weekend Chappelle made good with a surprise appearance that has since found its way online.

Country turned pop superstars Florida Georgia Line are less than two months from the release of their sophomore album, and to date only one song has been made available to the public. That is until the band played St. Louis over the weekend.

Performing in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday, August 23, Florida Georgia Line informed fans they simply could not wait any longer to share new material with their audience. Before long, a new song titled “Anything Goes” was introduced to a roaring response. We were not on site, but as soon as the band tweeted

Watch Taylor Swift Perform “Shake It Off” At The 2014 VMAs

The 2014 Video Music Awards took place Sunday night, August 24, on MTV. None of our primary staff have cable in their home, so we had to watch our Twitter feeds and wait for anonymous strangers online to upload clips for us to enjoy. Those videos have begun to appear online, and it’s time for us to share them with you.

Taylor Swift had arguably one of the biggest weeks of her career earlier this month. During that time, she debuted a new single titled “Shake It Off” that has quickly taken over top 40 radio. Swift debuted her live …

The Killers Cover Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” At V Festival (Video)

The Killers may not have put out as much music in the last year as most fans would have liked, but that is not stopping Las Vegas’ best export from livening up their recent festival appearances with a series of unexpected performances.

This past weekend, The Killers were appearing in the UK at V Festival when frontman Brandon Flowers decided to surprise the crowd with a never before performed cover of Iggy Azalea’s top 40 hit “Fancy.” The piano-led rendition lasted less than a minute, but it was more than enough to turn the crowd, as well as …
