Rock N’ Roll Outlaws And Iron Horses: 15 Badass Photos Of Rockers On Motorcycles

View Photo Gallery

Here it is Wednesday morning and you’re no doubt suffering PTSD from another nail-biting and horrifically violent episode of everybody’s favorite biker drama, Sons Of Anarchy. But way before SAMCRO brought 1%er culture into people’s living rooms, rock n’ rollers were scaring norms and singing tomes to badasses and their two-wheeled death machines. From Steppenwolf‘s ode to getting out on that highway, “Born To Be Wild,” to Motörhead‘s Hell’s Angels tribute “Iron Horse/Born to Lose,” outlaw rockers have always had a great affinity for outlaw bikers and some of them have been known to mount a steel horse from time to time as well.  Read more…

Let’s Rock Out With Our Kid Rock Out During This Artists Den Performance

Palladia is airing Kid Rock‘s full Live From The Artists Den concert Wednesday, March 19 at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of this rockstar working the stage with his hit “All Summer Long” and it’s bound to get you out of this end-of-winter slump! Kid Rock wows the crowd for so many reasons – partially because of his luscious golden locks, his iconic shades, and maybe even because of the fact that he’s a five time Grammy Award nominee (yeah, you can brush the dirt off your shoulder now, Kid).

Is She Really Going Out With Him? 20 Not-So-Hot Rock Stars With Outrageously Hot Girlfriends

View Photo Gallery

Guys date outside their league all the time, and our girlfriend would totally agree (rimshot). Perhaps this is simply because women are, generally speaking, much more emotionally intelligent dudes, and less apt to base a romantic partnership around something as superficial as looks. Ladies are drawn to more important  qualities like inner beauty of the soul…but in some cases, being an internationally renowned rock star helps a bit, too!

Five Artists Who Rep America Through Thick And Thin

artists-who-rep-america

Happy July 4th, everyone! In honor of America’s 237th b-day, we thought we’d pay tribute to five patriotic artists who have been known to rep the US of A through thick and thin. Many musicians (rightly!) use their art as a way to criticize things about the American country and culture that they feel are in need of change, but the five artists that we have selected here are about as pro-America as you can get.

How “Big” Will Big Sean Get In 2013? A Primer On The Man Who Might Be Next Year’s Breakout Hip-Hop Star

His rap name is an oxymoron. Physically, Big Sean is anything but big. His waifish, 5’8″ frame isn’t exactly gargantuan in stature, but there’s no denying that he has a royal flush in his hands. It’s a winning hand which, if played correctly, could turn him into Detroit’s biggest hometown hip-hop hero since Eminem.

Big Sean, born Sean Anderson, is no overnight success. From the time the 17-year-old rapped for Kanye West outside of WHTD-FM 102.7 in 2005 (if only that infamous 16 bars would surface) to his record deal in 2007 with West’s G.O.O.D. Music to 2009’s first installment of Finally Famous Vols. 1-3 mixtape to his 2011 major label debut, his rise to fame is something like that of the tortoise in “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Slow and steady wins the race.

Tuned In: Miley Cyrus Is Gonna Make Us Lonesome When She Goes

Miley Cyrus really is growing up, and it’s absolutely delightful to watch. The young star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night looking decidedly more mature with a sleek long-bob (we’re booking our hairdresser appointments right now!), to perform her cover of Bob Dylan‘s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.” The song appears on Chimes Of Freedom, a compilation of Bob Dylan covers celebrating his career as well as Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary with all proceeds from sales going, naturally, to Amnesty. Miley’s rendition of “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” is absolutely beautiful, and at only 19 years old, Miley’s emotion when she sings it is wholly convincing. With her raspy country vocal and the already gorgeous music, it’s pretty hard not to fall in love with this performance.
