Foo Fighters kicked off their week-long residency on The Late Show with David Letterman with a little Sabbath for the masses.
The Foos, with some help help from Zac Brown, ripped through a sizzling version of Black Sabbath’s classic track War Pigs, with frontman Dave Grohl sharing the vocal duties.
David Letterman couldn’t contain his praise for the Foos/Brown collaboration, saying: “Well there, you see, that’s what we’re talking about. Zac Brown. Black Sabbath. Foo Fighters. I don’t know, what do you kids want from me?”
Grohl and co. are promoting HBO mini-series Sonic Highways, which premieres on October 17, and the album of the same name, which arrives on November 10.
Attention musicians: Pornhub wants to know if your band can rise to the occasion.
The website known best for hosting a variety of adult entertainment videos is pulling a Playboy and expanding their entertainment offerings by starting a record label.
Pornhub vice-president Corey Price told Billboard Magazine that Pornhub Records, which officially launched Wednesday, was already in touch with some high profile artists to help pick the starting roster for the new label.
“We’re looking for artists that aren’t necessarily porn-focused,” Price said.
Warning: The following video may contain content that some viewers may find offensive. Viewer discretion is advised.
Although that statement may have come prematurely as he admitted earlier that the new artists picked would have all of their content made available to listeners on the company’s main pornography site.
A site, it should be noted, that receives an approximate 40 million views a day.
So how does one get signed to such a prestigious label like Pornhub Records? It’s actually not too hard.
The record label is hosting a contest to help find new talent, helping them discover the ins and outs of the industry by connecting them with high-powered artists.
The label’s already succeeded in securing one major artist… from the ‘90s.
Coolio made headlines a couple months back when he announced he would be debuting a new song — and a new video — on the pornography site.
Although there aren’t any rumours or leads on which artists will be partnering with Pornhub to help discover new talent, expect to hear more news from the label in upcoming months.
The only question left is whether to grab a 7-inch or a 12-inch of Coolio’s upcoming album.
Kanye West may have found some redemption within the music community following a week of bad publicity.
Days after West received flack for embarrassing two physically disabled fans during a concert in Sydney, Australia, the rapper performed in front of thousands in his hometown of Chicago during Common’s AAHH! Festival set on Sunday.
