See video for Marilyn Manson's new song 'We are Chaos'.

"I'm in a mode in life where I wanted to tell stories with this record, and it's sort of like a wax museum of my thoughts, a study of the chamber of horrors in my head," Marilyn Manson told Revolver Magazine last summer when they asked him about his forthcoming new album. "All the romance and hope you can have in the world, here in the End Times where it can be a different kind of apocalypse for each person listening to the record." Manson has finally officially announced the album, titled WE ARE CHAOS, and unleashed its haunting, soulful lead single and title track. (You can pre-order the album now via Loma Vista.) The 10-track LP, which is due out on September 11th, was jointly produced by

Linkin Park get Trump campaign video disabled over copyright violation.

President Trump's campaign has once again run into resistance from the music community. A newly launched Trump video was disabled on social media after Linkin Park claimed a copyright violation when a cover of their song "In the End" was used. The clip utilized a cover of "In the End" done by Fleurie and Jung Youth that raised concern amongst Linkin Park fans. Fans were quick to notice the song usage, with "Linkin Park" soon becoming a trending topic on Twitter. Not long after, the video was taken down with the message, "This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner." As expected, there was quite a response to the Trump video being taken down. Included in the tw

It's been nearly half a year since we have enjoyed the thrill of the mosh pit. With the return of in-person concerts still uncertain, this slo-mo video of a pit set to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" is a brutally touching tribute that makes us realize we didn't know just how good we had it before the coronavirus pandemic halted the touring industry. The hilarious video clip comes courtesy of Twitter account Warped Tour Updates, which is not affiliated with the actual Warped Tour in any official way - it's just a fun-loving, satirical page for Warped lovers to remember the historic touring festival and all it stood for.

A Perfect Circle cover by Breaking Benjamin, Bad Wolves + Nothing More Musicians is almost perfect.

The all-star band is comprised of Breaking Benjamin bassist Aaron Bruch, Bad Wolves guitarist Doc Coyle, Nothing More guitarist Mark Vollelunga, Vagus Nerve singer Sterling Jackson and YouTube drummer Meytal Cohen.

10 times Rock Stars were wasted on TV.

Back when television was the only place to see your favourite rock stars live in two dimensions, wasted musicians created some unforgettable moments. The Dick Cavett Show was a home for rock and roll during the ‘60s and ‘70s, creating a forum for in-depth and personal conversations. While making an appearance on the show, David Bowie showed up coked out of his mind, twitching and sniffing while erratically answering questions. One of the most famous wasted moments on TV comes from Courtney Love at the 1995 MTV VMAs. Not long after the death of husband and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, Love interrupted a Madonna interview by throwing her shoe at the pop star, eventually making her way up to a
