    Megadeth are marking their 35th anniversary



    Megadeth are marking their 35th anniversary with an extras-packed, deluxe reissue of their 1985 debut, newly dubbed Killing Is My Business ... and Business Is Good: The Final Kill. The remastered album, due June 8th, features a new mix that includes some alternate takes, as well as live recordings and demos.

    The album, which was notoriously muddy and raw-sounding because the band spent much of its recording budget on drugs, now supposedly conforms to frontman Dave Mustaine's vision, save a re-recording of the band's Nancy Sinatra cover, "These Boots." Engineer Mark Lewis (Trivium, Death Angel) remixed the album, while Ted Jensen remastered it. During the process, Lewis found a number of previously unheard parts of the songs, including a drum performance that was thought to be lost, which are now present.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction 2018

    On April 14th, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted its 33rd class: Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe (in the Early Influence category), Bon Jovi, the Cars, Dire Straits and the Moody Blues. The induction ceremony, which took place in Cleveland, included tributes to Tom Petty and Chris Cornell, performances from several inductees and an exceptionally bawdy speech from Howard Stern. Here, in advance of Saturday's HBO premiere of the event, we look back at the night's most unforgettable moments.

    Lauryn Hill's surprise appearance during the Nina Simone tribute
    After Andra Day performed Simone's "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free" and "I Put a Spell on You," Hill made an unannounced cameo. She put a contemporary spin on the old folk song "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair," completely reinventing the arrangement with her versatile band. Hill then remade "Ain't Got No, I Got Life" by filling it with nimbly rapped verses about racial injustice, shattering the apolitical tone of the event. Hill finished with a brassy, harmony-filled rendition of "Feeling Good," ending the Simone tribute on a hopeful note: "It's a new dawn/It's a new day/It's a new life for me."

    Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard covers Sister Rosetta Tharpe
    Howard honored "the godmother of rock & roll," with a version of "That's All," one of Tharpe's thumping, bluesy cuts. Backed by a cheerful band that included the Roots' Questlove on drums and longtime Late Show With David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer on piano, Howard was one of the night's most commanding performers, picking out spindly lines on electric guitar and demonstrating impressive range as a singer.

    Howard Stern's wild induction speech
    Stern was characteristically foul-mouthed during his address, which touted the commercial accomplishments of Bon Jovi. "The bubonic plague only killed 50 million people … peanuts compared to 130 million Bon Jovi albums!" Stern exclaimed. "Try to look at it this way: The average amount of sperm in one ejaculation is only 100 million – Bon Jovi beats sperm, ladies and gentlemen … Leonard Cohen used to sit at home alone beating off at night thinking about selling three million albums, let alone a hundred million." Stern later complimented Richie Sambora for having the biggest penis in the band before leading the crowd through a surprisingly in-tune version of "Wanted Dead or Alive" and announcing, "Eat shit, Bob Dylan!"

    Ya i like Rock Music
    Rock music uses instruments such as organ, piano, mellotron, and synthesizers. Other instruments sometimes utilized in rock include harmonica, violin, flute, banjo, melodica, and timpani. Also, less common stringed instruments such as mandolin and sitar are used. Rock music usually has a strong back beat, and often revolves around the guitar, either solid electric, hollow electric, or acoustic.

    Rock music has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll and rockabilly, which evolved from blues, country music and other influences. According to the All Music Guide, "In its purest form, Rock & Roll has three chords, a strong, insistent back beat, and a catchy melody. Early rock & roll drew from a variety of sources, primarily blues, R&B, and country, but also gospel, traditional pop, jazz, and folk. All of these influences combined in a simple, blues-based song structure that was fast, danceable, and catchy."

    The Tao of Stevie Nicks

    We round up the legendary Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter's thoughts on magic, destiny and the Lindsey Buckingham drama that will never die.

    The sheer power of Stevie Nicks' voice, one of the biggest, best and most distinctive in all of rock, can sometimes overshadow the brilliance of her lyrics. Whether she's singing about her tempestuous relationships, Welsh witches or her well-documented history of drug abuse, her songs reflect an affinity for fantastical stories; and even speaking off-the-cuff in interviews, she reveals her natural talent to weave words into gorgeous tapestries.

    As the legendary Fleetwood Mac singer turns 70, here are some of her most memorable musings on her career, her destiny and her legacy.

    Black Sabbath and Indica Weed

    "When we started, we were smoking lots of pot and taking acid, and the soundtrack to all of our fucking lives at the time was essentially Black Sabbath," says Al Cisneros, vocalist, bassist and chief somnambulist for the quintessential stoner-doom metal band Sleep, which formed in the early Nineties. "Our entire universe was Black Sabbath. We couldn't understand why the bands that we didn't like were playing so fast."

    The record, which came out as a surprise release on 4/20, kicks off with three minutes of piercing feedback and gut-rumbling riffing (a track called "The Sciences" that guitarist Matt Pike concocted "trying to make Al laugh") and before kicking into 50 minutes of swinging, blues metal that worships at the altar of Black Sabbath. One of the standouts is titled "Giza Butler," a pun on Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler's name. The sludgy "Marijuanaut's Theme" starts with Cisneros lighting a bong filled with his favorite herb. And the band still plays at tempos just fast enough to keep them out of the ER. In other words, it's business as usual.

    So it's been a surprise to the band members that the reception for The Sciences has been unlike any they've ever gotten. The LP, which came out on Jack White's label, Third Man, has sold enough copies that it peaked at Number 12 on the Billboard's Top Album Sales chart and Number Two on the Hard Rock Albums chart. Although the musicians have carried on in other groups – Cisneros heads up the drone ensemble Om, Pike fronts metal cult heroes High on Fire and drummer Jason Roeder hails from Neurosis – none have achieved this level of success.

    The founding members of Good Charlotte, including brothers Joel and Benji Madden, formed the band while students at a nearby La Plata, Maryland high school.
