Andrew W.K. Rocks Out On “Silent Night”

I used to hate Andrew W.K.–his whole “party hard” schtick was really grating and annoying. And then I interviewed him a few years ago and found him to be one of the sweetest and most genuine rock dudes out there. I still don’t really want to listen to his music, but I get his appeal.

Even Though Michael Jackson Is Gone, We Can Still Hold His Hand

“Hold My Hand,” featuring Akon, is the late Michael Jackson’s first posthumous single release from the upcoming album Michael. I actually like the song, but I could do without the “happy/sad children motif.” Perhaps not the most flattering choice. Anyhow, R.I.P., MJ.

Lavalier Music Vid Blows Our Mind Into A Million Beautiful Pieces

The pop symphonic stylin’s of six-piece band Lavalier will transport you to a magical place where Coney Island sword swallower The Lady Aye, a rad bitch in bloomers, and what looks like the ghost of Serge Gainsbourg reign. This here music video just helped me find the illusive fifth dimension: it’s a “Soul Train”-style…

Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R” Boggles The Mind

Ke$ha, the terrifying offspring of Paris Hilton’s career and Lady Gaga’s wardrobe, has a new video out, “We R Who We R.” (I guess she texted that title to her producers.) It’s a wonderful homage to clubbing, raving, drinking, and dressing in clothes that barely cover your bottom. I’m not sure which outfit…

Old-School Wednesdays: Ugly Kid Joe “Hates Everything About You”

It’s rainy, cold and I got stuck in an elevator this morning. So this hate-y song from Ugly Kid Joe is more than appropriate. [YouTube]…

Lykke Li’s New Video, “Get Some,” Is Naughty

Lykke Li has a new music video. The song is called “Get Some.” Here are some of the lyrics: “I’m a prostitute/you gon get some.” There’s also talk of pulling pants down and shotgun blasts and those sorts of things. If you know what I mean. And I think you do. The video…

Gay Guys Kiss In Pink’s New “Raise Your Glass” Video

God, I love Pink’s music videos. “Raise Your Glass” is catchy as hell and how awesome is it that she’s singing at a gay wedding?

I would like to know what the eff is going on with the blindfolded women whose breasts are being milked, though. Is that some kind of…

Old-School Wednesdays: Sonic Youth Give “100 Percent”

Before directing “Where the Wild Things Are,” Spike Jonze was just a skater punk who hung out with the effortlessly cool noise band Sonic Youth. This video for SY’s “100 Percent” was Jonze’s directorial debut, and features him and a baby Jason Lee skating and house partying with the band. The song is about the…

New Katy Perry Video, “Firework,” Features Fireworks Boobs

I don’t know what it is with Katy Perry and her boobs. First, she does a video with whip cream shooting out of her ta-tas. Then she gets kicked off “Sesame Street” for exposing too much cleavage. And in her latest video, “Firework,” fireworks shoot out of her breasts and … save the…

Old-School Wednesdays: Porno For Pyros Makes Good “Pets”

When I was in high school, I thought I was too cool for all the crap they played on modern rock radio. Now that I am an old lady, I’ve gone back and listened to some of those songs and can’t believe how good they are. For example, Perry Farrell’s post-Jane’s Addiction band, Porno…

Rihanna Is The “Only Girl (In The World)”

After a few ho-hum tracks and meh videos, Rihanna’s new video for “Only Girl (In the World)” is a welcome relief. Visually, it’s Dorothy in Oz on acid. Vocally, it’s techno meets soul anthem. Our favorite YouTube comment: “If every girl was like Rihanna, I would be straight… No doubt.” For you fashionistas,…

Ciara’s “Gimme Dat” Video Is A Fashion Spectacle

In Ciara’s new video, “Gimme Dat,” the singer sets the freaky fashion bar high. Among her super-sexy style flourishes: a sort-of fanny pack that spells out “FLY” paired with a pair of converse sneakers that are attached to see-through stripper heels. Add to that outrageous ensemble a pair of extra-short Daisy Dukes and…

Seal And Heidi Klum Leave Nothing A Secret In New Music Video

We’re really glad that Seal and Heidi Klum are so in love and all. But Seal’s new music video for his single “Secret,” featuring him and Heidi butt naked in bed and lightly caressing one another, has hit my “feeling violated button.” I’m really uncomfortable watching them touch intimately for a full 3:28.

Wayne Brady And Mike Tyson Redo Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” Video

I don’t know if you have to have been around to see the original version of Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” video to appreciate this oh-so faithful reenactment starring Wayne Brady and, um, Mike Tyson, but I find it to be totally hilarious. Mike needs to work on memorizing his choreography, though. Make…

Kim Zolciak’s Genius New Single: “Google Me”

Ahhhh, “Real Housewives” music videos. “Tardy for the Party” was fun. LuAnn De Lesseps’ “Money Can’t Buy You Class” was scary. Danielle Staub’s “Real Close” was surprisingly good. The same cannot be said of Kim Zolciak’s off-key new single, “Google Me.” If you do one thing today, please listen to it. It’s amazing. The…

OK Go Goes To The Dogs (No, Really)

They’ve danced on treadmills and battled with a Rube Goldberg machine, and now OK Go is back — this time with a pack of show dogs. Their new track, “White Knuckles,” sounds like what might happen if Prince discovered indie rock. And that’s a very good thing. [BuzzFeed]…

Florence + The Machine Rocks Out At The VMAs

Forget Kanye! Forget Taylor! Here’s Florence + the Machine performing “Dog Days Are Over” on the VMAs last night. The stage show was very over the top: Cirque du Soleil meets Burning Man at the Parthenon. The redheaded and barefooted one took home her first VMA award that evening for the “Dog Days”…

I’m Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley

Guess who has a new single out after 17 years? My favorite trench coat-wearing, Ray-Ban-rocking, ’80s crooner—Rick Astley. Check out his new single, “Lights Out,” after the jump. He wasn’t lying when he said he would never desert me. Well, I won’t desert him either. xo Rick. [BuzzFeed]…
