Hide your grandma: It's time for Nick Lutsko's Spirit Halloween theme song

Hide your grandma: It's time for Nick Lutsko's Spirit Halloween theme song

Halloween is still more than a month out, but that’s never stopped the purveyors of fake blood, plastic skeletons, and

ill-advised sexy costumes at stores like Spirit Halloween from getting a jump on the holiday well in advance. This year, to help usher in the beginning of the novelty shopping season well ahead of time, Nick Lutsko (whose work we’ve featured here many times before ) has...

Can Justin Bieber Just Open His Damn Megachurch Already?

Can Justin Bieber Just Open His Damn Megachurch Already?

The Biebs is back with new music, blessed by Jesus Christ himself, our Lord, amen.

On Friday the singer released “Holy,” a gospel-biting pop song with a little tambourine here, a little somber church piano there, about feeling God’s embrace in his wife Hailey’s arms and “pimps and players” who criticize him for getting married too young. The song is accompanied by a music video that screams...

Watch Undertale's quirky score get reimagined by a Japanese orchestra for its 5th anniversary

Watch Undertale's quirky score get reimagined by a Japanese orchestra for its 5th anniversary

There’s plenty to love about

Undertale , the 2015 ultra-indie RPG that evoked the 16-bit classics of yore while asking players to kill as little as possible. And while it’s easy to get swept up in the strange gameplay and quirky humor, it’s creator Toby Fox’s melodic (and pixelated) score you’re likely to cherish long after the game’s finished. It’s been covered numerous times over the past...

Mastodon launches cooking show by making a pizza out of a vinyl record

Mastodon launches cooking show by making a pizza out of a vinyl record

Mastodon has always kept busy with non-musical projects. Over the years, the band has

worked with coffee companies , whittled artisanal wooden dicks , sold coloring books , transformed themselves into hard-rocking movie theater concession stand food for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and tried in vain to fight off armies of snow zombies on Game Of Thrones. Now, eager to get the most out of the pun...

Quake Soundtrack Features Shenanigans Between Bethesda And Nine Inch Nails

Quake Soundtrack Features Shenanigans Between Bethesda And Nine Inch Nails

Earlier today, the original Quake soundtrack—composed back in 1996 by Nine Inch Nails—went up for preorder on the band’s site. And accompanying the release was an all-caps note saying “A CERTAIN UNNAMED VIDEO GAME PUBLISHER” stopped the release of some behind-the-scenes essays by former id developers John Romero and American McGee.

The note, as it appeared earlier in the day, read:

Tom Petty's Wildflowers will finally get the double-disc treatment 3 years after his death

Tom Petty's Wildflowers will finally get the double-disc treatment 3 years after his death

Late rocker

Tom Petty had very different intentions for the Rick Rubin co-produced Wildflowers, his second solo album. The 1994 15-track LP, which peaked on the Billboard 200 at No. 8, was originally submitted to Warner Bros. as a double album with 25 songs. It was a collection of beloved tracked that would ultimately be truncated (with two songs—“California”and “Hung Up and Overdue”—finding...

Singer Lady A Is Not Backing Down in Legal Fight With Lady Antebellum

Singer Lady A Is Not Backing Down in Legal Fight With Lady Antebellum

Seattle blues singer Lady A, who has been in a legal battle with the country band formerly known as Lady Antebellum after they edited their name without consulting her, is not backing down. She is now suing the Lady A band for “lost sales, diminished brand identity, and diminution in the value of and goodwill associated with the mark” as well as trademark infringement and unfair competition.

Live Nation is turning over 100 concert venues into polling sites for the election

Live Nation is turning over 100 concert venues into polling sites for the election

Not to be outdone by Chris Evans, Live Nation has announced a handful of new initiatives to encourage access to voting in the upcoming election—which, if you haven’t heard, is super fucking consequential and will determine whether America has a future (like, any future at all). It’s kind of a biggie. Following in the footsteps of the NBA, which recently decided to convert its arenas into...

Original Lady A files countersuit against country group formerly called Lady Antebellum

Original Lady A files countersuit against country group formerly called Lady Antebellum

It’s been two months since we last checked in on the fight between blues singer Anita “Lady A” White and country music band Lady Antebellum (who decided to

change their name to Lady A back in June even though there was already a woman performing under that name). The two sides met to discuss how to proceed back in June, with the band proudly declaring that they both agreed to share the name ...

Madonna really is directing her own biopic, but she's not going to star in it

Madonna really is directing her own biopic, but she's not going to star in it

Move your lazy butts over, Elton John and Freddie Mercury, because unlike what you guys did with Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody, Madonna is actually going to direct her own biopic. Of course, Elton John doesn’t have as much directing experience as Madonna, and Freddie Mercury has been dead for some time, but still. Elton John could’ve made that movie himself… though it may not have been as...

Dave Grohl escalates drum battle with 10-year old Nandi Bushell by writing her a theme song

Dave Grohl escalates drum battle with 10-year old Nandi Bushell by writing her a theme song

When last we donned our flak jackets to report from the front lines of Dave Grohl’s

ruthless social media war with a 10-year old drummer named Nandi Bushell, he’d taunted her with a challenge to play Them Crooked Vulture’s “Dead End Friends.” Bushell, who’s a very good drummer, obviously had no issue completing the task laid out for her. Last Thursday, she uploaded video of her playing the...

Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight's Verzuz Was a Masterclass in Auntie Banter

Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight's Verzuz Was a Masterclass in Auntie Banter

It’s a cliche to assess a clash of titans for its sheer entertainment value and conclude, “We all won,” but I truly cannot think of a better way to describe the outcome of the Patti LaBelle/Gladys Knight Verzuz battle that went down Sunday night. For more than two hours, two legends of soul and decades-long friends sat across from each other, trading reminiscences, compliments, and music, in...

Taylor Swift to descend from Mount Pop Star and perform for lowly country music fans once again

Taylor Swift to descend from Mount Pop Star and perform for lowly country music fans once again

Taylor Swift started her musical career as a country music sensation, singing about high school drama with an acoustic guitar and a bit of twang in her voice, but right when she started to enjoy some crossover success outside of that genre, she effectively turned her back on the country bullshit and embrace full pop stardom. Since then, because pop music is more popular than country music,...

R.I.P. Toots Hibbert, reggae pioneer

One of the pioneers of reggae music, and one of the longest and hardest working performers in the world of music, period, Toots Hibbert won Grammys, inspired generations to embrace the reggae sound, and helped put Jamaican music on the map in the mid-20th century. He died this week at the age of...

Madonna is working on a biopic, says Andrew Lloyd Webber "was not nice" to her on Evita

Madonna is working on a biopic, says Andrew Lloyd Webber "was not nice" to her on Evita

Today—invoking what some might describe as the ultimate game of Truth or Dare, where the Dare in question is “Play a 20-year-old version of Madonna while an actual Madonna watches”— pop icon Madonna revealed that she’s working on her biopic, teaming up with screenwriter Diablo Cody for the film. Madonna posted a very long Instagram Live feed (which has now been immortalized on YouTube)...

Willie Nelson and Jimmy Carter’s son smoked a bowl on the White House roof

Willie Nelson and Jimmy Carter’s son smoked a bowl on the White House roof

Casey McQuiston’s 2019 novel Red, White & Royal Blue—yes, this is a story about Willie Nelson smoking up on the roof of the White House, please bear with us—opens with a lovely little passage about the White House roof. (See? It’s relevant.) There’s a piece of paneling up there, McQuiston writes, that can be gently peeled back to reveal a message:

In the secret history of First Families—an...

Trump's Unfortunate Use of a Song About Privileged Assholes and Other Mishaps in Campaign Song History

Trump's Unfortunate Use of a Song About Privileged Assholes and Other Mishaps in Campaign Song History

On Thursday evening, an estimated 5,500 people packed into a Freeland, Michigan aircraft hanger to see President Trump in the flesh. Just before the president debarked from Air Force One, “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival blared on the rally speakers, amusing reporters on the ground. Whether the timing of the song was purposeful or accidental—simply Boomer-era classic for a...
