A Very Mellow Christmas Message From Iggy Pop

If this holiday greeting from Iggy Pop doesn’t put a smirk on your face, then I’m pretty sure you’re getting a bunch of coal in your stocking.

Merry Christmas, PUNKS!

You Guess – Iggy Pop Or An Exhibit From ‘Bodies’

I’m pretty sure I’m going to hell anyway so posting this  photo series comparing Iggy Pop to some of the exhibits from the Bodies isn’t really the one thing that got me into that hand-basket. And they are some kind of uncanny.

Iggy Pop Joins Fight In Michigan To End Wolf Hunting

Music The Stooges

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long time animal rights supporter Iggy Pop has joined forces with animal advocacy group, Keep Michigan Wolves Protected in the fight to end wolf hunting in the state. According to the organization, who has widespread support from hundreds of groups, say here are only 658 wolves left in Michigan, and that the hunt will allow for 43 of them to be killed.

Here’s an excerpt from Iggy’s letter to Michigan governor Rick Snyder (R):

I am asking all of my fans in Michigan to sign up and help gather signatures to reverse this decision and protect the wolf from future hunts. The senseless killing of these majestic animals for sport is a disappointment to the people of Michigan and a stain on its government. It is shameful the lengths the legislature and executive branch will go to hunt this iconic creature.

If you’re a resident of Michigan, you can sign a petition to get referendum PA-520 on the ballot that will help ensure that people in support of stopping this inhumane and environmentally devastating event, are heard.

Iggy Pop To Play Stoned Caterpillar In ‘Once Upon A Time In Wonderland’ TV Series

tumblr_m872v72zis1rtszqfo1_500

Iggy Pop has replaced Roger Daltrey as the voice of a stoned caterpillar in upcoming ABC TV series, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland. The grim looking show, a riff on Alice in Wonderland, has poor Alice shut up in a mental institution, because she keeps telling stories about talking rabbits, and hookah smoking, caterpillars that occasionally break into a chorus from Search and Destroy (I wish!). So make sure you clean out your best bong, as the show is set to premiere on October 10th. It’s a slow news day folks…

Very Metal Friday Night Update: Iggy And Yoko, Schon ♥’s Perry, And Another Reason To Hate Hipsters

pop19

Welcome to another weekly installment of VMFNU! Today’s update is completely jammed packed with heavy metal happenings, weirdness (like the unlikely union of Iggy Pop and Yoko Ono), and sweet new jams to shake your hair to. In other good news, I’m happy to report that the good time that is the Movies About Girls podcast once again start broadcasting LIVE on August 17th via Google Hangouts. Tomorrow MAG’s summer movie celebration continues with Episode #171, and our exploration of 1978′s bikini bash flick, Zuma Beach. You can listen to the episode here later this weekend.

Speaking of bikini’s, head over to horror loving blog Destroy the Brain, and check out my latest Coffin Couture article, “Sepultura, Skeletons, and Satan: Heavy Metal Swimwear”. It’s full of eye-popping metal goddesses in bathing suits fit for the apocalypse.

Now, on to all the metal shit that went down this week…

Iggy Pop joins the Plastic Ono Band for a new one-sided 10-inch single, that features Pop singing Yoko Ono’s song “Waiting For The D Train“.

More breaking vintage 80′s video game news: Journey once had a stand-up arcade game that played “Don’t Stop Believin“.

What in the What-Ever-Happened-To-Baby-Jane Hell? Josh Homme on the cover of Metal Hammer Norway.

The new 4 song EP from Black Table, “Sentinal“, is full of screamo, thrashy goodness. Listen to it right now.

Speaking of things you should do right now, here’s a video of the Melvins covering the Butthole Surfers track “Graveyard” along with Gibby Hanes.

Neal Schon wants to reunite with Steve Perry. In other news, what the hell happened to Neal Schon’s old face?

New heavy metal video game, Eternal Descent features Joe Satriani, Andrew WK, and other metalheads.

LA band Black Prisim somehow went back in time to 1971, became Black Sabbath, and recorded their new 7″, “Satan’s Country“. You can download the title track for free over at Easy Rider Records Soundcloud page.

Speaking of Black Sabbath, Lita Ford says that Ozzy once nearly ruined Easter dinner for her family. And after reading that last sentence, I’m officially as confused as you are.

Holy Grail will swing back through Seattle in October with Orange Goblin and Lazerwulf.

My very metal pals, Boston band The Humanoids, are releasing a record called “Wild Times“on steel colored vinly. It doesn’t get much more metal that this kids.

File this one in the overstuffed drawer full of things they don’t teach you in school; a map of the United States that includes a photo of the most notable musician born in each state.

Ever wanted to hear Dave Mustaine talking about his “personal” relationship with God? Yeah, me either.

In other news you should know, God’s only begotten son was a Boston Bruins fan.

As if we needed another reason to hate hipsters; according to this article at Quartz, hipsters are buying records, but they don’t listen to them.

Keef makes Vanity Fair’s 2013 “Best Dressed List”.

Jack White might be a mean-o.

Cheap Thrills: Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life” Going For $5 On Amazon


Iggy Pop, Here Comes Success.

Produced by David Bowie, Iggy Pop’s 1977 record (one of his best if you want my opinion) can be had in MP3 format via Amazon this month for only $5.00. Bonus?  The CD is also available  for only $4.99 and is an AutoRip. Geeky translation? The CD comes with a free MP3 of the record. But you have to click quickly as Lust for Life, as well as 100 other $5 albums selected by Amazon’s team of editors, will only be available through the end of this month.

Very Metal Friday Night Update And Very Metal Programming Note


Surf Nicaragua, Sacred Reich. Oh, 1988, how I miss you.

Hey there my very metal friends! You might have noticed that not much is going on this week on the site, sorry about that. I’m headed back to Seattle in a couple of days, and things will once again return to normal (whatever that means), on Monday. Until then, make sure you’re filling your idle time with my Internet friends over at Movies About Girls, Destroy the Brain, Dangerous Minds, and all the other excellent time-killers listed on the right of this page.

Until I’m back, here’s a few heavy metal news nuggets for you to chew on. Including the track listing for the new Motörhead record, Aftershock.

See you soon!

Here’s the track listing for Aftershock!

Phil Anselmo ❤’s David Lee Roth.

Speaking of things to love, Cassette Store Day is now a thing.

And since I’m on a love bender, Beth Ditto got married.

Other things I love; HEAVY METAL DRUMMING GRANDMA.

Speaking of drummers, Bun E. Carlos is suing Cheap Trick.

Listen to the new Monster Magnet track, “The Duke (of Supernature)“. PS: The band will hit Neumo’s in Seattle on 11/22!

Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton is proud of his obscene Beanie Baby line that was made in “some Chinese factory”.

Angus and Malcom Young (and brother George) are ranked #48  on Australia’s richest residents. Who says rock ‘n’ roll don’t pay?

What’s more American than a shirtless Iggy Pop dancing around with the flag? Nothing! Happy 4th m*therf*ckers!

And now for my annual “I’m leaving on a jet plane post”. It’s time once again for me to depart for my month long sabbatical to the east coast. So, posts will be slower than usual for a while here at CB.com. I will be blogging over at Curious Tracks as well as Destroy the Brain during July so look for me there. In my absence, do make sure to visit my very metal Internet friends over at Movies About Girls, Dangerous Minds, Dlisted, and all my other clickable pals hanging out over on the right of this page.

See you soon!

 

Very Metal Friday Night Update: Senior Citizens In Stockholm Like Iron Maiden, Lars Ulrich Falls Down, And Rest In Peace, Jeff Hanneman


Rest in Peace, Jeff Hanneman. Vintage Monsters of Rock footage of Slayer performing, Raining Blood.

Like everyone else, I’m still stunned that guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a founding member of Slayer, passed away yesterday of liver failure at the age of 49. Back when I was a younger metalhead, I was lucky enough to see Slayer at a small club in Boston called The Channel. It was terrifying. The pit was a thrashing mess of hair and sweat, that would randomly pull onlookers into it’s chaos. The band was in full-tilt rage mode, as they slashed their way through songs from Seasons in the Abyss, like professional serial killers. There were many times during that show that I fought the urge to run out of the club, feeling I’d be safer outside, than inside. It was complete madness, and unlike anything I had ever seen. Until that day, I thought I knew what heavy metal was. But Slayer set me straight with their satanic, aggressive perfection. Thanks for the very metal memories, Jeff Hanneman. The world is now a lot less metal, and a little too quiet without you.

Footage of Clem from Blondie  laying down drum tracks for The Kinks “Attitude” for Everyone Loves Sausages.

San Fransisco band Orchid sounds more like Black Sabbath, than Black Sabbath sounds like Black Sabbath. And if that sounds better to you than listening to the new Sabbath record, you should stream Orchid’s new record, the super psychedelic, “Into the Mouth of Madness“, here.

Even the Nana’s and Pop-Pop’s of Stockholm like Iron Maiden.

Here’s Coliseum’s new video for “Love Under Will“.

Just Metal Things.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

9 minutes from the 2013 Wayne’s World Reunion Panel.

Listen to two sick new tracks from Black Tusk.

Iggy Pop says that in five or ten years, people will warm up to the Stooges new record, Ready To Die.

Speaking of being ready to die, after reading this, I’m sure the end is near.
