By now you know that I’m the official X96 90’s geek. So you can guess how stoked I was about Soundgarden's deluxe "Superunknown" reissue hitting stores this week. Most consider that to be the best Soundgarden album, and no doubt the best selling one. (I’ve always had a hard time choosing) But you can see how big a fan I was by this picture of me in 1994 rocking my SUPERUNKNOWN t-shirt. I was pretty damn cool.
I had hair like Fabio!
But now I’m even MORE excited! Get this, Soundgarden guitar slinger Kim Thayil tells "Billboard" there is plenty of bonus material to go forward with a "Badmotorfinger" re-release! Still no word on new material, but this is good enough for me. Now let’s hope for a Utah stop on their upcoming summer tour with Nine Inch Nails. I’d straight up punch a toddler for tickets to that show.
Maybe this one!
IF they are able to pull off a Batmotorfinger reissue, it will be just in time for the record's 25th anniversary in 2016. I may bust out some “Rusty Cage” on my drive home today to celebrate.
One more week. Then I can break out my expensive Sennheisers, the ones reserved for the truly special albums. I'll then lounge in my listenin' chair to the new Jack White album. Of course, it is streaming on iTunes (here), but some things need to be experienced in the best of circumstances in a controlled environment.
So flip this up to 1080p and enjoy the visuals:
Let’s face it. Limp Bizkit is one of those bands you love to hate. They had their moment in the sun in the late 90’s when Alternative rock was inexplicably angry. I mean, the economy was good. We were not at war with anyone. What the Hell were we mad at?
Nuke 'Em was mad because he wanted baggier pants.
But in a perfect example of things that just WONT go away, Limp Bizkit is putting out a new single. I can’t wait to ignore it. But I guess for the first time we can give them points for creativity. Fred Durst and Co. will be turning back the clock by releasing the single exclusively on cassette.
That’s one of these things for you youngsters.
The Limp Bizkit Facebook page says that "Endless Slaughter" (Nice name) will be available only at their live shows in "about two weeks or so." The track comes from Limp Bizkit's long-in-the-works new album "Stampede of the Disco Elephants," which is expected to drop sometime in the summer. I actually had to seek out, and like their page to write this so you owe me.
“I can count to this many!”
In the meantime the band is on their European tour. So far the only US gig they have booked is a headlining appearance at the Aftershock festival on September 13th in Sacramento, California. I don’t know what that is, but I know I'm not going.

Boner Candidate #2 - Already Dead? One less car we have to fix, man!

Boner Candidate #3 - Pedophile priest off duty
Reverend McAlinden molsted several young men during his career, but attorneys for the diocese used the controversial argument that they couldn't be held responsible for Rev McAlinden's actions, because abusing a child is not part of a priest's 'duties'. (Read full story here)
Boner Winner: Boner Candidate #3
In a landslide victory!
Could we be getting NEW Faith No More music this year? Please Lord, let this happen. I don't ask for much.. We did see a FNM reunion tour recently sans guitar man Jim Martin. So I guess that's something.
I’m a huge Faith No More fan. In fact, Angel Dust was my very FIRST “Parental Advisory” CD. I had my older brother buy it for me, and to this day I hide it from my mom. Anyway, back on topic..
It's been under my mattress for 22 years.. I need a new matress.
Faith No More’s Mike Patton recently started a Twitter account for the band. That’s a good sign. THEN he participated in that oh so important internet tradition, the selfie. Sigh. He said the recent "reunion thing" was fun, but "now it's time to get a little creative." COULD that mean a new album? If so I doubt he’d ever get Martin back in the lineup. Martin is still no over his mystical feud with the band and has only spoken about them publicly once since 1992.
This was how we new what CD's we wanted in the 1990's
In the meantime, however, FNM fans can look forward to seeing the band in London on July 4th and in Poland on July 5th. I won’t be going. Feel bad for me.
