In “Last of the American Girls,” the latest video off Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown, the band bridge the gap between their punk-rock operas and their upcoming American Idiot Broadway musical with a video that’s one part rock-out in the desert, another part Glee. The video, which debuted today at MTV.com, tells the story of a mundane day in the life of the “Last American Girl,” with two dancing blond twins giving the video a ...

Download Konono No. 1’s New 12-Minute Track “Wumbanzanga”

April 1st, 2010
Photo: Pieter Hugo Konono No. 1, the Congolese trance band who shook the music world (and opened for Björk) with their home-tweaked junkyard electronics and delirious grooves, are returning on June 8th with their long-awaited second album Assume Crash Position. We have the first taste, the 12-minute opening track, “Wumbanzanga,” whose distorted likembes pick up where 2005’s buzzy, fuzzy Congotronics 1 left off, but adds new swirls of color, joy and hypnotic euphoria. Hear them ...

April Fool’s Rock Hoaxes: Bieber or Die, Coldplay Perfume and More

April 1st, 2010
April 1st is a rough day to be in the news business. Rolling Stone could get a press release that says Dr. Dre’s Detox finally has a release date or Talking Heads are reuniting or the Beatles are coming to iTunes, and we wouldn’t believe it since so many folks use April Fool’s Day to engage in shenanigans with their fans. Last year, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor pretended he recorded an album with Timbaland ...

Drake Tells Fans to Bring “Open Mind” to “Away From Home” Tour

April 1st, 2010
Photo: Nunez/WireImage Last year, Drake got his big break opening for Lil Wayne after returning from his own So Far Gone tour, where he rocked the mike at universities and small colleges across the country. This year, though, he’s the main act on “The Away From Home” trek. But he’s in no rush to move on to arenas and amphitheaters just yet — 2010’s most buzzed-out MC wants to revisit the cities and venues that helped ...

LL Cool J, Toby Keith Protest Use of Interviews on Palin’s Show

April 1st, 2010
In 2008, rockers rallied to prevent the GOP from using their music without permission. Now two musicians are protesting one famous Republican’s use of old interviews. LL Cool J wants the record to show that he did not sit down for an interview with former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin for the Alaska ex-governor’s new Fox News show Real American Stories. Ladies Love Cool James took some heat after ads for Palin’s new show teased ...

Libertines Perform Acoustic Set at Reunion Press Conference

April 1st, 2010
Photo: Edsjo/Redferns Six years after breaking up and just days after joining the Reading and Leeds festival lineups, all four of the Libertines appeared at a London pub yesterday for a press conference to confirm their reunion. What began as a typical Libertines event — the rockers showed up 30 minutes late for their own announcement — turned into a impromptu concert as Pete Doherty, Carl Barat, bassist John Hassell and drummer Gary Powell performed ...

Jane’s Addiction Debut Duff McKagan at Perry Farrell’s Birthday Party

April 1st, 2010
Jane’s Addiction played their first concert with new bassist Duff McKagan Tuesday night at Perry Farrell’s 51st birthday party at Los Angeles’ Les Deux, JanesAddiction.org reports. It’s still unclear what songs the new formation of Jane’s performed — as you can see in the video above, the first order of business was to rock a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” The performance will likely go down as the first of many with Duff, ...

“American Idol” Offs Didi Benami, Preps for Return of Beatles Week

April 1st, 2010
Photo: Becker/FOX Why has American Idol decided to embrace rock’s biggest, most important bands of all time during its Season of Suck? First, the Rolling Stones, and next week songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Idol has been here before: twice in Season Seven (remember Brooke White’s “Let It Be” and David Cook’s “Day Tripper”? Both are worth watching again for crazy Paula action). Hopeful Mike Lynche also heard the words he feared most — ...
