ZZ Top have their own tribute album

A Tribute From Friends is the name of the ZZ Top tribute album which will be released on October 11. Apparently 11 ‘classic’ songs will be featured (holy shit, a lot of 11 numbers, call Dave Mustaine… It’s symbolism!!!111).

Want to know who will cover the ‘classic’ songs? Well, some decent names like Mastodon, and some pretty awful ones, like Wyclef Jean, Nickelback and Daughtry.

Here’s the track listing I stole got from Blabbermouth:

01. THE M.O.B. (Mick Fleetwood, Steven Tyler, Jonny Lang & John McVie) - "Sharp Dressed Man"
02. FILTER - "Gimme All Your Lovin'"
04. NICKELBACK - "Legs"
05. WOLFMOTHER - "Cheap Sunglasses"
06. DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED - "Got Me Under Pressure"
07. COHEED & CAMBRIA - "Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers"
08. MASTODON - "Just Got Paid"
09. WYCLEF JEAN - "Rough Boy"
10. DAUGHTRY - "Waitin' For The Bus / Jesus Just Left Chicago"
11. JAMEY JOHNSON - "La Grange"

There you have it. If you wanted more ZZ Top in your life, October 11 will be a great day for you. Not for me, though. I refuse to hear anything with Wyclef Jean’s name attached to it.


Wolfmother singer arrested

Make no mistake, despite ripping off Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin (poorly I may add), Wolfmother are about as metal as playing badminton whilst dressed as a girl. But this news is just too interesting (well ok, it really isn’t, but it’s a weekend and news is slow) to not post.

According to NME, the Wolfmother frontman, Andrew Stockdale, was arrested yesterday and fined $350 after getting drunk at a bar, forcing his way on stage while a local band performed a cover of The Beatles’ ‘Let it Be’, singing a drunken version of the song with numerous swearing, and then engaging in a brawl.

What. A. Tit. In the words of Mike Patton in regards to Wolfmother, “are you hearing this shit? What year are we in? Wolfmother, you suck!” Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click.

A video of the drunken act can be viewed above. If you’re wondering what it sounds like, but have the sense not to press play, he sounds as shit as he does with Wolfmother, only he’s drunk and says motherfucker more than Fred Durst on a bad day.


Big Day Out Lineup

Tool, Rammstein, Deftones and Wolfmother are among the artists that have been confirmed for the 2011 Big Day Out festival tour of Australia and New Zealand.

We took the liberty of arranging an unofficial poster for the event. The whole lineup (as of right now) after the kangaroo jump (haha, get it? I crack myself up)
