This year on That Metal Show we’re doing things a little differently and thinking up exciting new ways to bring you the best coverage of all things heavy metal and hard rock. One of those things is That After Show, where we keep the cameras rolling after the regular broadcast is over and let the TMS boys and their guests talk about, well, whatever the f-ck they want to talk about. This week hear Mark Tremonti, Taylor Momsen and Twisted Sister sound off about their life in music.
Dreams were made today when Nick Jonas delivered alcohol to a bunch of unexpected strangers. The Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards Host teamed up with the alcohol delivery app Saucey in LA to not only bring booze to customers, but stayed to play them a few songs and have a drink or two. We hope he played his Kanye West “Only One” cover.
Justin Bieber is trying hard to get people to like him again, but his past continues to haunt him. In 2013, Justin was allegedly accused of using a Toronto SUV limousine driver as a punching bag, and now he is being sued over the incident.
Zac Barnett of American Authors rings in the number one song on this week’s Top 20 Countdown, but first, a little magic. Watch Barnett do a guillotine magic trick at the Houdini Museum of New York before announcing Taylor Swift‘s “Style” as this week’s top single.
Hip-hop and R&B embody their own styles as much as they do sounds, and hats play a part of the sartorial side to either genre. From Ne-Yo‘s fedoras to Busta Rhymes‘ Dr. Seuss hat, these are the hats that became like limbs to the hip-hop and R&B artists who wore them.
Madonna‘s Rebel Heart is suffering in sales, Fred Durst is not a murderer, Kanye West had something to do with Rihanna‘s latest single and more on Last Lap. Read more…
While spring attempts to make an actual appearance around these parts, this week’s SoundCloud faves helped keep us optimistic—despite Mother Nature’s unwillingness to the cooperate.
This Saturday, That Metal Show is back on VH1 Classic with an episode you won’t want to miss. The gang is joined by Mark Tremonti of Creed and Alter Bridge, and Taylor Momsen, the Gossip Girl-turned cool rocker. Plus, the guys from Twisted Sister pay tribute to their late drummer, A.J. Pero.
Remember that rumored Kanye West & Rihanna tour? The one you hit all your friends about in a group chat and made plans to attend? Well looks like the dream tour could be in jeopardy before it even gets off the ground.
The internet is a wonderful thing. It gives us access to our favorite music, the latest heavy metal news, and (of course) cat memes. Now a certain genius has found a way to combine all three—and it just might be the high-point of the interwebz. The amazing Kitten Covers tumblr features classic album covers reimagined with adorable kittens in place of the band. The badass-ness and cuteness play off each other like sweet and salty in a Reeses Cup, creating a phenomenon we can’t get enough of. From Metallica to Iron Maiden, and even deeper cuts like Minor Threat, these heroes did it up real big.
