Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrates ‘Drunk History’ Hamilton Episode (Clip)

Drunk History Narrator Lin-Manuel Miranda

The Tony-winning Broadway musical Hamilton is a smash hit that recently set the record for most money grossed in a week on Broadway ($3.3 million for 8 performances in one week). The show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has become synonymous with Alexander Hamilton since singlehandedly bringing the American political figure to the forefront of pop culture. So, you can imagine that having Miranda narrate an Alexander Hamilton-themed episode of Drunk History is a pretty big deal.

Hosted by Derek Waters, Episode 4.10 “Hamilton” of the Comedy Central show airs today, November 29 at 10:30/9:30c, and sees Miranda quite drunkenly and humorously providing a brief history of the Founding Father’s personal and political life, and his first and last meetings with Aaron Burr.

Check out a clip from the episode here below.

Massive Metal Monday: Probot “Shake Your Blood” (Featuring Lemmy)

Probot with Dave Grohl Lemmy and Wino

You may have noticed that Massive Metal Monday took a well deserved week off for the recent Labor Day holiday here in the United States. But we’re back this week and in keeping with the spirit of Labor Day, this week’s Massive Metal Monday honors two of the hardest working dudes in all of rock, Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl.

Dave Grohl, although not really known as a metal musician, has always worn his fandom of the genre on his sleeve. In 2004, he released an all-star record of metal originals under the moniker of Probot and invited a veritable who’s who of metal gods to turn in guest performances. One of the standout tracks and only video released from the album was “Shake Your Blood.” Grohl played all of the instruments on the recording save for the bass, which Lemmy provided along with penning the lyrics for the song. The video features Scott “Wino” Weinrich from The Obsessed and Saint Vitus on guitar. (Wino also appeared on the album’s only single “The Emerald Law.”) The ladies featured in the video are from the adult website Suicide Girls.

So, without further ado, here are Lemmy, Wino, and Dave Grohl with this week’s rousing Massive Metal Monday track “Shake Your Blood.”

Ghost B.C.: If You Have Ghost EPIf You Have Ghost
Ghost
CD | MP3 | Vinyl
Produced by Dave Grohl
Universal Republic
Released November 19, 2013

One of Sweden’s finest current musical exports, Ghost (known as Ghost B.C. in the U.S.), has a new EP out If You Have Ghost that follows up on the band’s sophomore album Infestissumam which was released earlier this year.

The 5-song EP, produced by Dave Grohl, continues to expand on the eerie, satanic synth-driven metal sound which has propelled Ghost to fame since their debut back in 2010. Here, Ghost tackles four covers giving them all their unique musical approach and sound, and then concludes with a live version of “Secular Haze”. Two of the covers were available via different Infestissumam releases, though it is nice to have them in one collection.

Members Of The Foo Fighters Perform '2112 Overture' In Full Rush Garb!

Back in December, it was announced that this year my favorite band of all time, Rush, was finally (finally!) and deservedly going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Well, it’s official, Rush is now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The ceremony, which also saw Heart, Public Enemy, and several other artists added to the Hall, was held on Thursday, April 19, 2013 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, with Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters doing the induction honors for Rush. And not only did the Foo boys give the speech about the Canadian trio, but they also teamed up with producer Nick Raskulinecz to perform the “Overture” from Rush’s 2112 live on stage while sporting the Rush 2112-era look, complete with white satin robes and wigs!

Watch the video here below of the performance capture by fan video – be sure to watch til the end for some cool shit!!!

Sound City Documentary

Sound City
Director: Dave Grohl
Screenwriter: Mark Monroe
Cast: Neil Young, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Rick Rubin, Mick Fleetwood, Lars Ulrich, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Paul McCartney

Directed by Dave Grohl, Sound City focuses on the history of the legendary Van Nuys, CA studio for which it is named — where artists like Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer, and countless others created classic records over the past 40 years — and the never-ending fight to preserve the human element of music in a digital world.

Through interviews with legendary musicians and producers, Sound City uncovers the magic within the walls of that studio and culminates with many of those legends creating a new album on the same legendary Neve console that produced so many hits.

Album Deal: Nirvana ‘In Utero’ For $5

Nirvana

In Utero, the final studio album by 1990s grunge monarchs Nirvana, is now available on CD from Amazon for only $4.99 and is an “AutoRip” selection, which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 download for FREE.

The highly anticipated follow up release to Nevermind, which surprised everyone (most of all the band), 1993’s In Utero found a record which, while it may not have went down as the punk-filled smooth full of dirty sugar which made the medicine go down as its predecessor, remains arguably the better album, filled with a more punchy concrete production, more arranged songs, better musicality, and stern, loudspeaker style vocals by the late Kurt Cobain. Cobain and the band (Krist Novocelic and Dave Grohl on bass and drums respectively) goosestep with shiny musical metal boots all over this one, Cobain’s lyrics seem more mature, even though they are still steeped in his intimidated, fragility in a dirty sweater his physicality had oddly endeared him to a world he wasn’t prepared to embrace. Songs like the MTV rotated “Heart Shaped Box” and “Scentless Apprentice,” “Serve The Servants,” “Very Ape,” “Milk It,” “Rape Me,” and the longish at least in its title, but strongest in its musicality, “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle” stand right up there and fit nicely with the band’s other releases, and there’s even a portent of things that could have been with the Kinks-stylings of “Pennyroyal Tea.” This album has two more high profile records which bookend it, the aforementioned Nevermind and the Unplugged in New York live album which followed it, but In Utero is still not to be forgotten and is much more than an artifact from the era of the Seattle slew that permeated the charts and fabric of Generation X.

Tenacious D

In anticipation of the release of their forthcoming CD The Rize of the Fenix (their first in six years, due out this May) the greatest rock band in the world has returned for their first music video in what seems like ages. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Tenacious D – the folk metal duo consisting of musically gifted funnymen Jack Black and Kyle Gass – are back to rock our socks off with more rock guaranteed to melt your tits.

You can check out their epic promotional short film “To Be The Best” here below.

The D first appeared in a three-episode HBO comedy series that aired from 1997 to 2000. They released their first full-length album in 2001 and within four years it had gone platinum. In 2006, the duo made their big screen debut in the hilarious rock musical Tenacious D In The Pick of Destiny, but the film was a box office flop. Since its release on DVD it has become a cult film. Black and Gass also released a soundtrack album packed with original songs.

Foo Fighters Respond To Westboro Baptist Church Protests By Playing Show For Picketers

Foo Fighters in Kansas City

On Friday night, the Foo Fighters played a show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and on hand to show their own special brand of support were members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, who brought out their trusty signs and hate-filled chants to express their umbrage at any person, group, or organization that doesn’t share their black-hearted hostility towards homosexuals. In their own puckish manner, the Foos decided to show their appreciation for the Westboro group’s venom by putting on a special concert just for them. They filmed the performance and their preparation and you can watch the video of it all here below.
