View Photo Gallery

It may have been called “the Devil’s music” when it first burst onto the scene back in the 1950s, but these days many of the greatest rock heroes follow the word of the Lord!  After achieving their dreams of becoming rich and famous, some stars have found their lives in the music biz spiritually empty. That’s when they turned to the Christian faith for enlightenment and peace. But that doesn’t mean they can’t still funk out with the best of ‘em! Well ok, sometimes it does…

The 40 Greatest Opening Lines In Music History

View Photo Gallery
As we discussed earlier this week, first impressions are crucial…even in music! Like a well-written story, a good song always has a killer line to hook you in, set the mood, and get your imagination going. Some are funny, others are sad, some are mysterious, and then there are those that are straight up sexy. Whatever the case, a fantastic opening lyric is sometimes all you need to make a track unforgettable.

Bob Dylan Joins Our List Of Rock’s 15 Most Unexpected Pitchmen With DOUBLE Super Bowl Ads

Bruno Mars may have been the true winner of last night’s Super Bowl, but Bob Dylan wins the award for blowing the most minds. The quintessential rock ‘n’ roll rebel stunned fans by appearing in a commercial for Detroit’s own Chrysler, urging folks to “Let Germany brew your beer, let Switzerland make your watch, let Asia assemble your phone…We will build your car.” The ad is not the first time that Dylan has appeared in a commercial (check 2004′s Victoria’s Secret spot), or even the first time he’s schilled cars (try 2007′s Chrysler Escalade ad), but most fans still found it pretty surprising. The craziest part? That wasn’t even his only ad of the night! Read on to see 15 of the most shocking rock stars-turned-pitchmen of all time!

The 10 Most Legendary Rock Clubs Of All Time

rock_clubs_main

Rock clubs are frequently noisy, smelly, dark and cramped…and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Music history is born out of these crowded and smokey venues, where tomorrow’s megastars are today’s opening act, struggling to be heard over a drunk dude’s repeated request for “Free Bird.” The recent film CBGB paid tribute to the eponymous NYC rock spot, which gave us dozens of timeless bands before closing in 2006. This got us thinking of some other incredible joints that have earned their spot in rock mythology. Read on to see our picks for the 10 most legendary rock clubs of all time!

A Collaborative Musical Menu For Your Thanksgiving Dinner

Click to embiggen for the full spectacle.

Happy Thanksgiving! While you’re savoring the day with friends and family and a big ole’ feast, we’re celebrating with a crew of our favorite artists at the table this year. Here’s what everyone’s bringing:

Bob Dylan knows where to begin: with a “Turkey Chase.” Once wrangled, the bird can be topped with George Benson‘s famous “Giblet Gravy.”

While that’s getting prepped, Snoop will set up the beverage station — “Gin and Juice,” anyone?

Rick Ross, the real star of this meal, will handle the hors devours: “More better, more cheddar” (“Here I Am”);  “Air train and peanuts, it’s time to slide” (Yung Joc‘s “Brand New”); “Order crab legs with the heavy butter” (“New Bugatti”); some lobster bisque (“I Love My Bitches”); and let’s get an order of those lemon-pepper Wingstop chicken wings, because why not.

Is this making you hungry, too?
