The All-American Rejects return with their scathy new song ‘Gen Why? (DGAF)’

When a band has a song titled “Gives You Hell” in their discography, do you really expect them to lie low and not get petty with newer jams? Well, in the case of the All-American Rejects, the answer is “um…no.”

On Tuesday (Sept. 17), the Oklahoma-founded band unleashed the lyric video for another new song featured on their recently released EP. Titled “Gen Why? (DGAF),” the track finds the act getting a “little” shady during its three-and-a-half-minute runtime.

The word-based clip combines footage of teenagers circa the 1950s rebelling against everything while also incorporating some modern advances like text messages and social media.

In a note on Twitter, frontman Tyson Ritter reveals what inspired the song.

“When we were on Interscope, I wrote this to piss off people over there that wanted another ‘Give You Hell.’ So to me, this song is a special kind of monster created to leave a bad taste in your mouth and piss you off even for having heard it.”

Ouch. Talk about scathy.

Watch the video for “Gen Why? (DGAF)” above.

“Gen Why? (DGAF)” is featured on the All-American Rejects recently released EP, Send Her to Heaven. In July, the group unleashed the music video for the three-track record’s lead single (and title track) “Send Her to Heaven.”

The recently released album marks the band’s first new set of tunes since 2017’s “Sweat” and “Close Your Eyes.” It’s also the quartet’s first record through their new home of Epitaph Records.

As previously explained by guitarist Nick Wheeler, don’t expect these three songs to be a precursor to a brand new record. The foursome has no current plans of releasing the long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Kids in the Street.

Ice Nine Kills channel ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ for ‘Savages’ lyric video

Halloween is right around the corner, which means Ice Nine Kills is getting ready to make their annual spooky way across the country. But before they can take their favorite horror film characters on the road, the band has unleashed the lyric video for their latest single.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), the Massachusetts-founded band unleashed the lyric video for their latest single “Savages.” Taking visual inspiration from the slasher film that inspired the lyrics (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), the look of the video is very similar to that of the 1974 movie. The clip includes footage of Ice Nine Kills performing for a packed house as well as footage that looks like it came from the “based on a true story” thriller flick.

Watch the video for “Savages” above.

“Savages” is featured on Ice Nine Kills horror film-inspired album The Silver Scream. The record, the act’s fifth full-length album, was released on October 2018. Late last month, the band announced plans to release a deluxe version of the record. The reworked album will feature all 13 previously released tracks as well as a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a song inspired by the 1996 slasher flick Scream.

In support of the re-released work, Ice Nine Kills previously announced a set of fall tour dates. The “Octane Accelerator” tour begins on Oct. 29 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and concludes a little over a month later on Dec. 1 at Webster Hall in New York.

Supporting acts include Fit for a King, Light the Torch, Make Them Suffer, and Awake At Last.

Listen: Marianas Trench share new track ‘Echoes of You’

A week after unleashing “Only the Lonely Survive,” Marianas Trench have returned with another new song from their upcoming album. On Friday (Feb. 8), the Vancouver-founded band premiered the lyrics video for “Echoes of You.” Unlike “Only the Lonely Survive,” which was a straight-up pessimistic take on a relationship, this one seems to shed the ultra-negative outlook with its poppy sound and less dark lyrics.

Also, if you pay close attention to the chorus, the band makes a slight Easter egg reference to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart.

Watch the lyrics video for “Echoes of You” above.

“Echoes of You” joins previously released songs “Only the Lonely Survive” and lead single “I Knew You When” on the act’s upcoming album PhantomsPhantoms — the foursome’s fifth studio effort— is due out March 1 via 604 Records. Pre-orders are available here.

Phantoms is the follow-up to the quartet’s 2015 release, Astoria.

Back in December, Marianas Trench announced plans to embark on a United States-centric tour in support of the new record’s release. Dubbed the Suspending Gravity tour, the forthcoming outing will find the band performing at venues across the country throughout the months of May and June.

The Suspending Gravity tour begins on May 1 at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia and concludes a little over a month later on June 5 at the House of Blues in Anaheim.

The full list of dates can be found here.

Listen to Muse Release the “Reapers”



The video that was uploaded yesterday afternoon, is the same exact video release by the band.

The previous video has been taken down, like the uploader warned about, but you can now see the official lyric video uploaded by Muse, below.

If you’re patiently waiting the release of Muse’s upcoming new album Drones, then we have another new track from the impending release.

As of now, the band have officially released three songs from the super secretive album, and now a new song appears to have been uploaded onto YouTube.

Though the account that uploaded the video is not Muse’s official account, you can listen to the song below which is amazing with its loud and pulsing instrumentals and frontman Matt Bellamy’s vocals. It’s become our favorite as of now; sorry “Dead Inside.”

While it’s “unofficially” Muse’s (for now, at least), we aren’t doubting the validity of the lyric video because it is very similar to the other videos they have previously released.

Anyway, check out “Reapers” below.

“Reapers” is the fourth song to be released off of Drones. Previously, the band released “Mercy,” “Dead Inside,” and lead single “Psycho” to impatiently waiting fans.

Drones will officially be released on June 9 through Warner Bros., though other locations will be getting the album ahead of time, like parts of Europe and as always, the United Kingdom.

Mötley Crüe Extend Final Tour, Release New Single


Mötley Crüe announced last year that they had planned to call it a day on the band, but before they did so, that they would head out on one last, epic world tour.

The members were so serious about this “final tour” that they all signed contracts promising this was the end of the 80s band.

This week, they made headlines again, but this time it was to reveal that they had decided to extend their “Final Tour.” Originally, the tour wrapped up last November, but with this new revelation, the tour will wrap up on New Year’s Eve 2015.

Like the 2014 incarnation of the tour, Alice Cooper will head out on the road with them once again.

As if the extended tour schedule wasn’t enough, the band have also released their final single, a track titled, “All Bad Things.” The lyrics for the new track aren’t lost on us though. With lyrics like “All bad things must end/ All bad things must die” it kind of makes us wonder if they’re talking about the band or something bigger.

Check out the new track below as well as the newly revised tour dates which may, or may not, be extended once more in the future.

Hear Coldplay’s ‘Atlas’ from ‘Catching Fire’ Soundtrack


The Hunger Games had Taylor Swift and the Civil Wars contribute a song to the soundtrack and just a few weeks back, it was announced that Coldplay would be contributing a song for the sequel of the hit film and book series.

Coldplay announced back in early August that they had written and recorded a new song titled, Atlas that would be making its debut in September and also be featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.

Today, the British band revealed, first, a 90-second-clip of the anticipated track and then shortly followed it up by releasing a lyric video for the song. “Atlas” marks the first time that the band have ever contributed a song for a film. Last time the band had been in the public eye, was last year when they wrapped up their Mylo Xyloto tour, but word on the street says that they are working on new material,

When asked about why they chose Coldplay to contribute a song for the album, film director, Francis Lawrence said, “I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film.”

He added, “their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can’t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.”

And share they did today, twice.

Watch the full lyric video below and tell us what you think about the new song?
