We’ve brought you a list of children who shred harder than you, and now three of them have joined forces for a pre-teen group that is destined for metal stardom.

Here’s Why Beyonce + Jay Z’s Wedding Video Shouldn’t Make You Feel Warm And Fuzzy

Beyonce-Jay-Z-Celebrate-7-Years-feature

Beyonce and Jay Z have been married for seven years, which, considering their hectic schedules and all of the shameful rumors surrounding their relationship, is quite a milestone. Bey recently dropped a new video, filmed by Jay, in which she debuted a song called “Die With You,” written for her hubby. Jay took to Instagram a few days ago to post a 2008 clip of their secret nuptials. As a fan of both Bey and Jay, I love getting glimpses into the behind-the-scenes of the life they share. At the same time, I’m left wondering: What made this extremely private couple suddenly want to go public with their relationship?

Watch Ed Sheeran Lose His Mind When Presented With A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Sword

by (@JordanRuntagh)

If you want to watch Ed Sheeran act like the ultimate kid on Christmas morning, then look no further than this clip of the singer being presented with a replica of Jon Snow’s sword from Game Of Thrones. This moment is made possible by the kind folks at New Zealand’s The Hits Radio, who offered Ed a combo belated birthday/Game Of Thrones premiere present. Ed apparently loves swords (who knew?), and he’s also a massive GoT fan, so it stands to reason that Ed would be pretty pumped. But not even the hosts could anticipate his ultra-giddy reaction.

20 Most Influential Metal Guitarists Of The Modern Era

-By Doc Coyle

Compiling a list of the most influential modern metal guitar players is intimidating. There was no way to do this without pissing a bunch of people off. I did my best to quantify which guitar players’ mark was being felt the most by the up and coming generation of new bands and musical movements in the realm of all things heavy. Whose legacy stood the test of time? Why is player “A” more influential than player “B”? Is there empirical evidence to support these arguments? These are the burning questions. There are some tremendously phenomenal players who did not make this list because their significance will not be known for some time. There are some players who made a big splash initially, but stature has waned in recent years. There are some genres like Black Metal where I had difficulty pinpointing 1 or 2 specific players that stood out among the slew of pioneers.

It (arguably) all started when Tony Iommi lost his fingers in a machinist accident, but metal guitar has come a long way in 50 years. Enjoy this list in all of its imperfect glory!

Mandy Moore Is The Most Underrated Pop Star Of The ’90s

by (@chrisrosa92)

This is a very important PSA, so sit down and take notes. Sixteen years ago, a doe-eyed pop star named Mandy Moore set out for total music domination with her groundbreaking classic “Candy.” However, underground indie acts like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera overshadowed this IRL empress, so she was never considered more than a bubblegum clone. This is a grave injustice, because Moore is actually the coolest — and most talented — pop act to emerge in the late ’90s/early ’00s. Class is in session.
