“Punk Goes ’90s, Vol. 2″ Now Streaming

Why are none of these punk bands?

Why are none of these punk bands?

So, I’ve listened to all of the Punk Goes… series of compilations because they are usually hilariously bad so of course when I found out they were releasing the sequel to Punk Goes ’90s, I was stoked to hear all these terrible bands cover songs I grew up on. To be honest, I was shocked that some of these covers aren’t half bad. Asking Alexandria‘s take on Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer” was close to spot on for a bit as was Motionless In White‘s cover of Rammstein‘s “Du Hast.” Other songs, such as Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! covering “All Star” by Smash Mouth and Falling In Reverse‘s “Gangsta’s Paradise” were just laughable.

You can stream the entire compilation after the jump. Or don’t. Now I’m just waiting for the next Punk Goes Crunk or Punk Goes Pop. So much shitty music, so little time.      Continue reading


AAWell, just when I thought I would never post about Asking Alexandria, I do. Didn’t have to, but I thought you folks would get a kick out of this one. Remember those Punk Goes ____ compilations that they have been putting out forever? Well, apparently they are still doing those, with their latest being Punk Goes 90s Vol. 2. What comes out of this? Asking Alexandria covering Nine Inch Nails‘ classic “Closer.” Let the lulz commence.        Continue reading

Review: NINE INCH NAILS – “Hesitation Marks”

Four long years have passed since the release of Nine Inch Nails last studio album The Slip. Since initially waving goodbye, Trent Reznor has been spawning successful film scores with Atticus Ross and solid records with How to Destroy Angels. But even the most devout of Reznor’s will always be partial to his work in the highly influential Nine Inch Nails. So you can imagine the excitement that all Nine Inch Nails fans, including myself, shared when the announcement of a new full length album had been made. Hesitation Marks is Reznor’s eighth record with Nine Inch Nails and after a four year silence, it has a lot riding on it.
