Imagine Hearing Led Zeppelin For The First Time

This one is just for Metalboy since his favorite band of all time is Led Zeppelin. Imagine hearing the band for the first time. Ok, now imagine you're like seven years old. Yep, it's time for another "Kids React" video. This one is pretty cute. Maybe not as hysterical as the recent Motley Crue episode... but still really good.

You know what I really want to see? I want to see an episode of kids reacting to Mayhem. Now THAT would be hilarious, but I digress. Enjoy the Zep and have some faith in humanity!


'Young Blood Rising' - Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, an awesome Finnish Glam band, has just released a video for their song "Young Blood Rising." The song is from the album Bad Blood Rising, due November 10 in America. This is real Glam and I love it: there's a great hook and amazing guitar solo. Listen to this now - don't delay. This band deserves your attention!


New Babylon A.D. Music

Babylon A.D. just released a stream of their new song "Rags to Riches." It's from the album Revelation Highway, which comes out November 10. Pretty good if you ask me.


Cheap Trick Plans Christmas Album

I can't believe I'm writing about Christmas albums already, but it's officially fall now so the holiday season isn't far off. Cheap Trick will release Christmas Christmas on October 20. Here's the planned tracklisting:

Merry Christmas Darlings
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day
I Wish It Was Christmas Today
Merry Xmas Everybody
Please Come Home For Christmas
Remember Christmas
Run Rudolph Run
Father Christmas
Silent Night
Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)
Our Father Of Life
Christmas Christmas

"Merry Christmas Darlings" is a new track Cheap Trick wrote for this collection. The band will announce holiday shows soon. 


New Music Friday

New music is here, just in time for the weekend! Asking Alexandria just dropped a video for their song "Into the Fire." It's more melodic than most other AA tracks, but I'll take it. Asking Alexandria will release a new album on December 15.

I'm looking forward to the new album since Asking Alexandria is one of my favorite bands to throw on while I'm running on the treadmill.


Oh, Brother

The grudges, how they last a lifetime. I have no other words on this one, except Mike Tramp was begging for a White Lion reunion for years and Vito Bratta is one of the best guitarists of the era. Revisionist history!


Would Lemmy Approve?

Have you seen the Kia commercial with the baby hamster running from the maternity ward... set to Motorhead's "Ace of Spades?"

The other day, my husband said "I've got that hamster running from the hospital song stuck in my head." I stared at him and said "You mean 'Ace of Spades?'" He blinked and realized I was right. The commercial is so distracting he hadn't even picked up Lemmy's voice!

I haven't decided if Lemmy would approve of his signature track being used in this way. Ultimately he'd probably laugh and enjoy the royalty checks. The metal resurgence in pop culture continues!
