The hugely popular Fearless Records compilation is back. Last month the label teased fans with the news of a second volume of Punk Goes 90s, and today we finally have all the details. The track list will include songs by classic ’90s bands such as Foo Fighters, Smash Mouth, and Green Day, being covered by acts like Yellowcard, Memphis May Fire, Falling In Reverse, and Mayday Parade.
We’re a little wary of the idea of Yellowcard covering The Smashing Pumpkins or Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! taking on Smash Mouth’s “All Star,” but hope we’re proven wrong. You can check it out yourself when the album drops on April 1st, and view the full track list and Get Scared‘s cover of “My Own Worst Enemy” below. (more…)
As someone who doesn’t really follow sports, the Super Bowl kind of snuck up on me this year. And while you’re all getting ready to gorge on chicken wrapped in bacon (yum) and cheering for your favorite team, I’ll be looking forward to one thing, and one thing only: a series of concerts by Foo Fighters, The Roots, and Imagine Dragons which will be streamed live via RollingStone.com. The Roots will kick things off tomorrow night with a program dubbed “The Roots Present Hip-Hop NYC,” featuring appearances by Run-DMC, Busta Rhymes, and more. Friday will bring Imagine Dragons to the stage at 12 a.m. EST, and Saturday belongs to the Foo Fighters.
Perhaps the coolest part of all of this, besides the actual streaming, is that the performances will be taking place on an aircraft carrier stationed in the Hudson River. Check it all out beginning at 11pm EST tomorrow night.

Rumors circulating last year that the Foo Fighters were nearing the end can now be dismissed for good. (And the crowd goes wild¦)
Speaking recently with UK radio station XFN, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed that the group have completed writing the follow-up to 2011’s Wasting Light and plan to record within the next year.
Well, I’ll tell you, we have been in our studio writing, and in the past few weeks we’ve written an album and we are going to make this album in a way that no one’s ever done before, and we’re pretty excited about it, said Grohl.
Wasting Light was recorded in Grohl’s garage using only analog equipment. There is no word yet how the band plans to record their still untitled new album, but rest assured we’ll post all the details as the begin to surface online. Follow OS on Twitter to ensure you never miss another headline.
For those of us not living in the Sunshine State, we’ve been facing some pretty harsh cold spells lately. And those of us in the Northeast this weekend, well, we’re about to get smothered in snow. When the weather is dipping below zero degrees, and you can’t leave the house without five layers and some seriously dependable thermal wear, you just might get what I like/hate to call the February blues. To help you cope, we’ve put together a Soundtrax that’s full of songs honoring this increasingly chilly month. Enjoy.
