Bullet For My Valentine headed to Rock Band this Tuesday


May 25

Rock Band 3: A bunch of Country music


Nov 04
 
I've always wondered why Country music is called Country music. Saying the name twice in one sentence already makes it sound weird, but if you think about it any more it completely stops making sense. See? It does make sense ...

Rock Band DLC: Soundgarden tries to live, does


Jul 15
 
Can anyone confirm that Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell is not immortal? Because I'm pretty positive that this guy doesn't age. Guitarist Kim Thayil has always looked like he was 79-years-old, but the frontman himself looks ...
