More money for Nikki Sixx! Motley Crue's classic "Home Sweet Home" was selected by the NFL for their #BackToFootball campaign. A special video with the song aired Saturday night during the game between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys. The ad is part of their bigger marketing campaign, "Football is Family."
I'm a football addict, and my Cincinnati Bengals are sacred to me (this is our year!) - I was a little sad to see that no Bengals made this clip, but the sucky Pittsburgh Steelers are featured prominently. #makemegag
Now here's the performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up" from that same show, just for fun. And if you listen really close at the beginning of the clip, you can hear someone scream "RickRolled!"
Bon Jovi just announced a new album. This House is Not for Sale will come out on October 21. The title track came out yesterday and the video is below.
This is the band's first album without guitarist Richie Sambora. The album sounds like modern Bon Jovi. That is to say, it's a way less 80s glam and way more top 40-country lite. Bon Jovi is a machine, so this album will probably do well sales-wise. I'm hoping a big tour comes with this new album, since I've never seen Bon Jovi live and they are a band still on my "must see" list. What do you think?
The classic lineup of Dokken will reunite during October for six shows in Japan. The reunion will feature Don Dokken, George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and Mick Brown. Now, there's news that Dokken will play one U.S. show before heading to Japan. That one date will be September 30 in South Dakota at Ron Keel‘s Badlands, Pawn, Gold & Jewellery in Sioux Falls.
Tickets are $50. Now, it's not an option for me to go to this show - but maybe one of you can make it? I think it would be killer for sure!
