The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been pushing the limits of rock music for over 30 years. Now, they are changing the face of football with a performance at this year’s Superbowl. Here’s what you need to know about the band that has an interesting, yet tumultuous history.
The Zac Brown Band teamed up with Dave Grohl from The Foo Fighters for an awesome performance at the 2013 CMA Awards.
Paul McCartney jammed out with Dave Grohl and the rest of what’s left of Nirvana, but they didn’t play what you’d think they would. Was it a disaster?
Iggy Pop’s rider is wacko, insane, crazy pants and I love it. Read it! Watch out, though. If you upset it, it may eat your entire family.
Mick Jagger hosts the season finale of Saturday Night Live and calls upon Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire, and Jeff Beck to help with musical duties. You don’t get more superstar power than this, folks.
Twin festivals Reading & Leeds announce their lineups for August 24th-26th. Kasabian, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, The Cure, Florence & The Machine, The Shins, Justice, Foster The People, The Horrors, Azealia Banks, OFWGKTA and so forth.
Award ceremonies are intended to celebrate the best and brightest talent, yet the shows themselves are often dull, lengthy and awkward. Although this year’s Grammy Awards clocked the highest ratings in decades (RIP Whitney), we were again reminded why we don’t really pay attention to these things. Especially this one.
Adele pretty much swept the Grammy’s last night, winning all six categories she was nominated for, while Foo Fighters took all the Rock awards and Jennifer Hudson paid tribute to Whitney.

Interactive dance clips; dangerous escalators; one-shot wonders; murderous muppets; product whores – our favorite 11 music videos from this year cover a lot of ground.
