Kurt Cobain made great music as the frontman of Nirvana, but he was also influenced by a slew of great musicians, too. For proof, we present this incredible list of “Top 50 by Nirvana,” a handwritten list of Cobain’s 50 favorite records. See the full list after the jump! [Dangerous Minds] Keep reading »
You need some new music? Me too! I’d love to hear about what you’re listening to in the comments. But in the meantime, I’d like to share with you an oldie but goodie mix I made, of mellow-ish chillwave-y songs. Maybe you like? Listen up, after the jump! Keep reading »
Hannah Montana is deader than dead: Miley Cyrus’s newest musical offerings include “Bitches Love Cake,” this totally weird (on purpose) dubstep song with Borgore. It’s got a baby goat, panda and unicorn costumes, and a big ol’ cake . Oh, and Miley Cyrus’s freakishly long tongue. As commenter LR52185 told me when he sent this in, “Miley must have some Gene Simmons in her … her tongue is huuuuuuuuuuge.” All the better to lick Liam Hemsworth with, I suppose.
“This one song that I’ve got, I don’t even know what the title would be, it sounds like something John Lennon would be doing in his very psychedelic stage. It starts with these congo or bongo drums carrying this strange rhythmic pattern. And then a tambourine doing off-time hits with it… It’s pretty bizarre. But it’s pretty catchy. Who knows, maybe we’ll stick it on the next Nickelback album.”
–Chad Kroeger reveals to Men’s Health that Nickelback is sitting on a crazy, psychadelic, paradigm-shifting, super experimental–but still catchy!–song in that maybe, just maybe, will make an appearance on the band’s next album. As an avid Nickelback fan, I will be waiting with bated breath. Another major revelation from Chad’s interview? He and fiance Avril Lavigne call each other “Chavril” at home(!), and Avril has taken total control of their wedding plans: “Let’s just say she’s … steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.” Be still, my Chavril-loving heart!

Whether you’ve got 99 problems or you’re a motherfuckin’ monster, chances are you probably like coloring books. (Everyone likes coloring books.) And this quirky rap coloring book will keep you busy coloring in Jay-Z and connecting the dots on Tupac. Too bad Nicki Minaj is excluded, because you totally could have used all the crayons in your box coloring on her crazy hair. [ANIMAL New York]
Courtney Love is working on a movie or Broadway musical about her relationship with Kurt Cobain set to Nirvana music, according to none other than Britney Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti. Lufti is currently suing Spears and her parents for defamation and explained in court yesterday how he’s been keeping busy. ”[Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on [Love's] life and Kurt Cobain’s,” he explained. Outside the courtroom Lufti clarified the musical/movie is just “an idea,” which I suppose it has to be for now because Love is on bad terms with both her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Cobain’s ex-bandmates. But hey, if creating a musical that might never get made is keeping Courtney Love busy and off Twitter, I say go on with your bad self. [Guardian UK] [Photo: Bauer Griffin]
