Mark Hoppus, Pierre Bouvier, Alex Gaskarth to Work on Music


It’s like our pop-punk hearts swelled up as we read that Mark Hoppus of blink-182 , Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, and Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan would be working on some music together. the news came from Alter the Press and at the time just looked like a rumor with a high chance of actually being true. All three of the musicians have worked with each other before.

When the article had been published, Hoppus took to Twitter to let the publication know that they were on the right track with the news, but that the three of them weren’t just writing a song.

Instead, the tweet let the world know that Simple Plan were the ones recording a new album and that he and Gaskarth would be recording WITH the “Just a Kid” band, not just with Bouvier.

Ah, one of the threesomes our teenaged-selves fantasized about.

In the event we couldn’t take Hoppus’ word serious, because you know he is kind of joker, Bouvier took to Instagram to announced the news with a picture of himself. The caption on the social media site relayed a similar message as Hoppus’ that Simple Plan would be recording with the blink-182 bassist and All Time low frontman.

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the band would be heading back into the studio and that 3OH!3 would somehow be involved. Sean Foreman, one half of the Colorado act posted the information on his Instagram. Drummer Chuck Comeau confirmed the news as well as that the new record should be released during the second half of 2015.

Now, all we can do is sit back and wonder what this track is going to sound like, considering everyone that has been attached to this record are a bunch of clown and jokers.

The Shakira and Rihanna Collab Has Landed


Last week, it was revealed that a collaboration between Shakira and Rihanna would be in our near future and now the song has finally been released.

The song is titled, “Can’t Remember to Forget” premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to bring a little bit of south of the border sunshine to the otherwise grime Monday.

The full track can be heard below:

On January 6, Rihanna had posted on her Instagram the news in a cryptic way that featured two chairs baring the superstars’ names on them and the caption, “One. Week. Countdown.” A few days later, the Barbados pop star released another picture, the official cover art for the single featuring both her and Shakira.

“Working with her was utopia,” Shakira revealed during and interview for the January 14th issue of Glamour. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both basically just Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real.”

So what do you guys think? Did the Caribbean girls get it right?

Fall Out Boy and Elton John, Collaborating

Save Rock and Roll

Yesterday afternoon, when Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump uploaded a picture of him and Elton John in the studio, fans and media alike started buzzing on whether or not the music giant would be working with the band on brand new material for their album.

Now, Fuse has confirmed that indeed, John has been working with band on new music for Save Rock and Roll, the band’s new album due out soon. A rep for the band released the following statement saying, “They’re currently working with Elton John on Save Rock and Roll in a studio in Atlanta [Elton’s hometown].”

Last night, the band had tweeted out a report from USA Today that played into the rumor that John would be one of the guest stars on the album.


While having such a big name such as Sir Elton John may come as a surprise to some, in actuality it shouldn’t. The band has always found way to incorporate some of music’s biggest players into their music such as Jay-Z in “Thriller” and Lil’ Wayne in “Tiffany Blew” as well as others.

Save Rock and Roll is due to hit store on April 16.
