Descendents Say Goodbye To “Worst President Ever” Donald Trump With New Song “That’s The Breaks”

Descendents have premiered a new song titled “That’s The Breaks.” You can check that out below. Milo Aukerman commented:

“Loser. Big time loser. Delusional loser. SORE loser. The time has come. The time is now. Just go, go, GO. I don’t care how. Donald J. Trump, will you please go now! What’s it gonna take? A gazillion dollars? (Oh wait, you already grifted that from supporters)… A get out of jail free card? (Only if our judicial system totally fails us)… A wooden stake through the heart? Whatever we can do to make you go away, we need to do it. And I don’t mean just leave the White House, I mean crawl back into your hole of hate and live out the rest of your life as a nobody. A loser. Because that’s what you are. Worst. President. Ever.”

NOFX Team Up With Avenged Sevenfold For New Song “Linewleum”

NOFX have teamed up with Avenged Sevenfold for a new song titled “Linewleum.” You can find an official video for that track below. With this news, NOFX have also announced that their new album “Single Album“ will be released on February 26.

NOFX’s Fat Mike said the following about the new song:

“I have no idea why ‘Linoleum‘ is THE NOFX song that is covered by so many bands, while other NOFX songs get hardly any attention. ‘Linoleum‘ wasn’t a single; it had no video; it got no radio play, and most importantly, it didn’t even have a chorus!!! All popular songs have choruses! WTF!

So, one night I stayed up till 4:00 am checking out all the different versions on YouTube. Watching hundreds of bands from over 28 countries (mostly Indonesia) doing ‘Linoleum‘ was a humbling experience for me. So I decided to write a song that was a shout-out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics.

Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn’t fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones! A song about not playing a song that’s not a hit song with a video about other bands covering the song! This is why I love punk rock and writing punk songs. Rules out the door!”

He also added the following about the new record, which was originally going to be a double album until the band’s plans were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic:

“When you write a double album, you write differently. I was writing really different songs, and some fun songs, but you have to make a double album interesting enough to listen to the whole way. I wanted to make a perfect double album, and I didn’t accomplish that. So I decided to just make a single album, hence the title.”

01. “The Big Drag”

Limited Series Based On Sex Pistols Guitarist Steve Jones’ Memoir Coming To FX

A new series focusing on the Sex Pistols has been ordered by FX. The show, which is titled “Pistol,” will be based on guitarist Steve Jones’ memoir “Lonely Boy: Tales From A Sex Pistol.”

According to Variety, the six-part series is being directed by Danny Boyle and it will feature Toby Wallace as Jones, Anson Boon as Johnny Rotten, Louis Partridge as Sid Vicious, Jacob Slater as Paul Cook, Fabien Frankel as Glen Matlock, Sydney Chandler as Chrissie Hynde, Emma Appleton as Nancy Spungen, and Maisie Williams as Jordan. Boyle commented:

“Imagine breaking into the world of The Crown and Downton Abbey with your mates and screaming your songs and your fury at all they represent. This is the moment that British society and culture changed forever. It is the detonation point for British street culture … where ordinary young people had the stage and vented their fury and their fashion … and everyone had to watch and listen … and everyone feared them or followed them. The Sex Pistols. At its center was a young charming illiterate kleptomaniac – a hero for the times – Steve Jones, who became in his own words, the 94th greatest guitarist of all time. This is how he got there.”

Production is expected to start in March.

Khemmis Frontman Ben Hutcherson Releases Cover Of The Offspring’s “Come Out And Play”

Khemmis frontman Ben Hutcherson has released a cover of The Offspring‘s “Come Out And Play” as part of his Doctor Of Doom project. You can find a video for that below and donate to Hutcherson’s Patreon HERE.

Hutcherson commented:

“’Nothing happens unless first we dream.’ – Carl Sandburg

‘Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?’ – Alfred Lord Tennyson

Do you remember your dreams? I do.

I once dreamt of a world. A different, better world. One wherein the Offspring‘s album ‘Smash‘ was written and recorded by members of Misery Index and Napalm Death. Wouldn’t you like to live in that world? I had a fleeting glimpse of it and it is glorious. You, too, can visit that reality (in three minute increments) thanks to my reimagined version of ‘Come out and Play’ and the ‘music video’ I willed into existence from the horrors of my mind.

Thanks to Chuck E. Cheese for scarring all of us who came of age in the 80s and 90s.

‘Like a Spreading Disease’ is the second in an ongoing series of videos wherein I deconstruct pop/rock hits from yesteryear and rearrange them as extreme metal songs. Want to learn how to play this song? Want to know what I’m covering next? All of this and much more is available to supporters of my Patreon!”

Watch Anthrax, Sum 41, Etc. Members Cover Public Image Ltd.’s “Public Image”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Hank Von Hell (ex-Turbonegro), Dave Baksh (Sum 41), and Jason McCaslin (Sum 41) have joined forces for a quarantine cover of Public Image Ltd.’s “Public Image.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“When I was younger, I would sometimes go to work with my sister, who was a hairdresser in Manhattan. Below the salon was a record store called Disco Mat that I LOVED. I would spend hours in there and one day, I had a weird experience.

I was in there going through records and I saw a man with a long coat and a beret looking through the bins. I knew it was Johnny Rotten because I was a huge Sex Pistols fan. I walked over to him all excited and he turned and put his finger up to his mouth and went ‘Shhhhhhhhhhhhh’ as in ‘STOP’. I took that as a leave me alone and that’s what I did. I continued to look around and then I saw him checking out and he called me over. I told him how much I loved the Pistols and he said that was all behind him and he was moving on. He took a Disco Mat card, turned it over and signed it for me. He talked a bit more and then left. The thing he was moving onto was Public Image Ltd.

I love love love First Issue, it still makes me happy when I hear it.

I was so happy Dave and Cone from Sum 41 were into doing this with me and when Dave mentioned having Hank Von Hell on it I was like WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! I love Turbonegro.

Hope you enjoy it, we had fun.”

Bad Religion Premiere New Song “What Are We Standing For”

Bad Religion have premiered a new song titled “What Are We Standing For.” The band commented:

“In this time of tribal nationalism, dissent, as a form of political speech, is vital to democracy. ‘What Are We Standing For’ is an outtake from ‘Age Of Unreason’. It is one of support and compassion for professional athletes, and others, whom have taken a knee to protest police brutality and racism.”
