Courtesy Warner Bros


By Radio.com Staff

Ohio rockers the Black Keys have released “Fever,” the band’s first new  song in almost three years.

The new song follows last week’s promotional blitz that included the announcement of upcoming album, Turn Blue, via a tweet from boxing  legend Mike Tyson that pointed fans towards a bizarre commercial campaign. The full-length is due to drop on May 13.

The catchy and melodic tune features a keyboard line that’s destined to get stuck in countless heads and an urgent vocal from frontman Dan Auerbach. It is also very clearly produced by Danger Mouse.

Listen to the song below:

99Rock Music News:  Don't Over-Think It!  Here are 20 Monster Hit Songs That Were Written In Just Minutes


(Courtesy - VH1)

By Jordan Runtagh - 

Everyone has that masterpiece they’ve been slaving away on for years. It’s your baby, your passion, your tour de force, and you won’t let ANYONE see it until you get it totally perfect! Well, be prepared to get super bummed out, because some of the biggest hits in music were written in less time than the average coffee break!

It’s really true that the best ideas often are the simplest. Some great songs were written off-the-cuff as favors, jokes and afterthoughts, while others were penned around riffs that just happened to fall out of a guitar during a jam session. In any event, the legacy of these tunes have continued to live on for decades! Talk about working smarter and not harder. So let this be a lesson to all of you songwriters out there: Don’t over-think it. Just look at these beloved classics that were tossed off in minutes!

The Black Keys will release a new song, "Fever"-- their first new single since 2011's El Camino-- on Monday March 24, Revolt reports.

In the time since El Camino's release, the Black Keys have stayed busy. Dan Auerbach, as previously reported, is working on Lana Del Rey's forthcoming record, Ultraviolence.

Patrick Carney, meanwhile, produced Tennis' Young and Old, and co-produced the Black Lips' recent album, Underneath the Rainbow. He and Auerbach also toured with the Flaming Lips, hung out on "The Colbert Report", and recently performed at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom in honor of Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Black Keys won three Grammys in 2013: two for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for "Lonely Boy", and one for Best Rock Album for El Camino.

No further album plans have been announced at this time.

99Rock Music News:  Kurt Cobain’s Death Reopened Then Closed By Seattle Police

By Scott T. Sterling

In a shocking turn of events, Seattle police have re-opened the case surrounding the 1994 death ofNirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain.

According to KIRO 7, the reason behind the new look at the case revolves around four rolls of camera film that sat undeveloped in a police evidence vault until recently. After developing and looking at the images, Seattle police said “they more clearly show the scene than the earlier Polaroid photos taken by investigators.”

The station has obtained one of the new images, which they plan on broadcasting later tonight (March 20) on the 11 p.m. newscast. There will also be an interview with the detective re-examining the case who will discuss new details and “the various alternate theories that have developed since Cobain’s death.”

99Rock Music News:  Did Courtney Love Find The Missing Malaysian Plane?


Courtney Love (Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

By Nadia Noir

Everyone is searching for that mysteriously missing Malaysian plane that disappeared on March 8th, including social media mayhem-maker Courtney Love.

The mouthy rocker is renowned for voicing her opinion on anything and everything via social media and this time around, she might have clues to where Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has tragically fallen.

Referencing the site Tomnod for satellite imagery, Love tagged a picture of what looks like an empty ocean with Microsoft Paint words that say “oil” and “plane.”

“I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick,” said Love in her post. “Prayers go out to the families #MH370 and its [sic] like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they ‘last’ tracked it 5°39’08.5″N 98°50’38.0″E but what do I know?” Check out the picture on Facebook.

While she’s not admitting that she knows where the plane is exactly, it would be one of the most incredible things that ever happened to mankind if Love, of all people in the world, was the person who actually found the plane.

Weirder things have happened.

By Shannon Carlin

Yesterday (March 10), CHVRCHES took the BBC Live Lounge stage to add a little experience to Lorde’syouthful pop song “Team.”

While Lorde sounds wise beyond her years on the track off her 2013 debut, Pure Heroine, CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry sounds like someone who’s been there done that. Sweetly singing, ”I’m kind of tired of getting told to throw my hands up in the air. So there.”

When it comes to who CHVRCHES would like to see cover their song “Recover” off their 2013 debut, The Bones of What You Believe, they said it’s a toss up between Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins, Cat Power and Tegan and Sara.

99Rock EXTRA:  Kevin Bacon Explains The ’80s To Millenials



“Two-time Saturn Award nominee” Kevin Bacon has a few words for Millenials, or those of us born after 1985.

“Awareness of 80s culture and technology has been in a significant decline, especially amongst a certain demographic,” he says in the opening of the video.

Bacon explains times of asking girls out by using the white pages, calling her, making small talk with hermom , and not being able to “swipe away the hurt” if you get rejected.

Bacon’s favorite app? A Rubik’s Cube. And if you think Russia is a threat now, he reminds you of a little thing called The Cold War… where “they had nukes pointing at us for 20 years. You couldn’t even skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked.”

RIP to Kevin’s friend, Tommy, who went out to rent a copy of Gremlins and never came back.

99Rock Music News: Shinedown's Brent Smith Talks about how he went about singing Adele's 'Someone Like You' 



According to The Pulse Of Radio, SHINEDOWN singer Brent Smith and guitarist Zach Myers will release four more acoustic cover songs on March 18, including their take on ADELE's hit "Someone Like You", for which the duo have just released a new video (see below). The four tracks were originally part of an album called "(Acoustic Sessions)", but did not get certain permissions in time from the original artists, forcing the six other tunes to be issued as an EP.

Smith told The Pulse Of Radio how he went about singing "Someone Like You". "Well, you have to understand it's a song written from a female point of view, and it's a very, very emotional song," he said. "I still stayed very true to the song, but I sang it more like how I would have sung it. I still stayed true to the melody, but I had to kind of make that song a little bit more mine, whereas the other ones, I really kind of just stayed true to the format."

The four additional songs, which also include covers of BON JOVI's "Wanted Dead Or Alive", PEARL JAM's "Black" and PHIL COLLINS' "In The Air Tonight" will come out under the title "(Acoustic Sessions, Pt. 2)".

Each of the songs was recorded in a single take. Smith told Billboard that he and Myers "are so excited that finally all 10 cover songs are available for the world."

The first six covers was released in January and included songs from THE CLASH, OTIS REDDING, METALLICA, SOUL ASYLUM, KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD and THE BLACK CROWES.

SHINEDOWN is also in the early stages of recording its fifth album, the follow-up to 2012's "Amaryllis". The sessions will be filmed for an ccompanying documentary.

99Rock Music News:  Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Apologizes to GRAMMYs, Imagine Dragons — Sort Of


(Photo Courtesy - Kevin Winter/Getty Images)


By Radio.com Staff

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has apparently cooled down a bit since his GRAMMYs performance of “My God Is The Sun” was unceremoniously abbreviated on live  television. The first of the supergroup to speak out was Trent Reznorwho called the GRAMMY’s actions “disrespectful.”

After frontman Josh Homme took a stage-crasher to task in Florida, an onstage tirade in Houston, Texas, found the singer taking aim at a litany of targetsincluding band Imagine Dragons and the GRAMMYs during an F-bomb-riddled rant, saying “F*** Imagine Dragons and f*** the Grammys.”

In a new interview with Australia’s Faster Louder, Homme says he says he was misunderstood and his anger was directed at an audience member. “I was really drunk,” he said.

Adding in regards to the GRAMMYs debacle, “The truth is, is that, I’m a musician, I play  my music and I don’t really worry about the rest. I don’t think it’s necessary to worry or sweat the rest of this stuff, you know? Just go and play your music, I go and play my music.  I don’t like to be disrespected, but nobody likes that.”

99Rock Music News:  ‘Back To The Future’ Hoverboard Video Featuring Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk, Moby, Best Coast Goes Viral

 
  
 
'Back To The Future’ fanatics nearly had a heart attack yesterday when the above video surfaced online, introducing a “working” Hoverboard from Back To The Future Part 2.

The video features cameos from Doc Brown himself Christopher Lloyd, skateboarder Tony Hawk, Moby, NFL star Terrell Owens, rapper Schoolboy Q, actress Agnes Bruckner, and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, who all contribute testimonials on the product.

When you head to Huvr Board’s “official” website, there’s a countdown to December 2014 and a note from the company:

“This is clearly a new frontier for science and we’re excited and honored to share this first chapter with the world.” —HUVr Team

Quotes from notable people like Mark Cuban and Tony Hawk are also presented on the site. Cuban says, “Once in a rare while do you get the chance to be part of something this big. This is one of those times. I’ve never been so excited for a product I’ve invested in. This f**king thing is going to change the world!”

“Hovering this way feels like skateboarding in its purest form. Because there’s no friction below you it lets you focus on the pure essence – just the movement,” said legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk. Hawk also took to Twitter to promote the video:

While many believe this video to be a hoax, the company insists that this is 100% legit. “We look forward to showing you just how real The HUVr is with a series of public live events coming soon to major US cities,” the company said via Facebook. “Pre-orders will be available within the month and we hope to ship in December of 2014.”

99Rock Music News:  Interview: Linkin Park On Their New, Heavy Single ‘Guilty All The Same’ Feat. Rakim

“It’s louder; it’s more visceral than anything we’ve done recently.”





For this new chapter in Linkin Park’s recording career, they’ll eschew mainstream alt-rock in favor of returning to their much edgier roots. Shinoda explained the music and passion on this record are rooted in the band’s earliest memories of their favorite punk rock bands, those bands weren’t afraid to try something different. “There’s an energy, an aggression and a meaning, like this attitude that I’ve got something to say and I need to get this out,” he said.

Linkin Park will hit the road with Thirty Seconds to Mars on the 25-city Carnivores Tour, kicking off August 8 in West Palm Beach, FL and wrapping up September 19 in Concord, CA.

99Rock Music News:  Interview: Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme Says He’s ‘Not a Metal Guy’


(Photo Courtesy Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

By Brian Ives

“If you’re going to be different, you’re going to be hit by rocks. So you need to learn to like rocks.”

During a recent interview with Radio.com, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme quoted his grandfather. It was good advice, and it has probably served him well over the years, because Homme is, if nothing else, different. Too sexy for the grunge scene, which was in full swing when his band emerged in the 1990s; too clever for an everyday metal band; and too macho for the twee indie-rock crowd. He and his band don’t really fit in anywhere.

Queens of the Stone Age may not be easily categorized, but that didn’t stop last year’s …Like Clockwork, the group’s first album in six years, from being welcomed by fans and critics alike. It became the band’s first No. 1 album in the U.S., and it was listed as one of 2013′s best albums by numerous outlets including Rolling Stone, Spin and New York’s Village Voice.

99Rock Music News:  Chino Moreno Says Old Deftones Music Is “Hard To Listen To”


(Photo Courtesy of Epicenter 2012-32)

By Nadia Noir

Deftones fans are some of the most hardcore. They pledge their allegiance to everything from Adrenaline to Koi No Yokan and everything in between. But, considering they’ve been a band since 1988, there’s a lot of old Deftones music that the public hasn’t heard.

And, if lead singer Chino Moreno has anything to do with it, it seems like no one would ever heard his stuff from the early days when Moreno started the Deftones in high school with Abe Cunningham and Stephen Carpenter.

“I’ve been going through all these tapes from ’95/’96,” said Moreno in an interview with VH1. “They’re hard to listen to. Like, seriously, I really feel like we’ve gotten better as a band. And, me as a vocalist, I didn’t know what I was doing.”

Detones currently have plans to start writing a new album this year, which would be a follow-up to 2012′s Koi No Yokan.

On June 3rd two different editions of the 20th anniversary reissue will come out, and they have demos and bonus live songs included with the remastered album. One of them is a demo of "The Day I Tried To Live" and you can hear it now. 


 

And on Record Store Day 2014 they will have a vinyl edition of the album as well! That will be on April 19th, 2014. Plan on being broke that day!!!

99Rock Music News:  R.E.M. Television Debut



R.E.M. made their national television debut on Late Night With David Letterman on October 6, 1983.  The band from Athens, Georgia played Radio Free Europe and So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry).

According to Rolling Stone, R.E.M. was one of the few bands that performed the song on their own and not with Paul Shaffer and the World's Most Dangerous Band.

The videos are quite the throwback.  Both with the band's fashion choices and Michael Stipe's hair.  They were promoting their debut Murmur album.  The record was critically acclaimed, but did not achieve the commercial success of many of their later releases.

99Rock Music News:  Tommy Lee announces engagement to singer SOFI


(Photo Credit Getty Images)

by Suzy Byrne | Yahoo! Celebrity
(Yahoo!) - "Never a Dull Moment" is right.

Tommy Lee is ready to take his fourth trip to the altar. Complete with a diamond ring emoticon, the Mötley Crüe drummer, 51, announced on Twitter Monday night that he is engaged to 30-year-old German singer and dancer SOFI.


SOFI, whose real name is Sofia Toufa, took to being a fiancée pretty quickly.


The Beyoncé reference is especially appropriate because SOFI started her career in the group Danacee, which was a supporting act for… Destiny's Child. (She was also a backup singer for Britney Spears.)

Like many rock stars, Lee, who is also in the band Methods of Mayhem, has had a full love life. He was married to model Elaine Margaret Starchuk (1984-85), Heather Locklear (1986-1993), and then, most memorably, Pamela Anderson (1995-1998), with whom he has two teen sons.

Lee also was also briefly engaged to Prince's ex, Mayte Garcia, from 2001 to 2003.

So, yes, it's been "Girls, Girls, Girls," as the Crüe sang, but he's ready to settle down again.
