    Finnish Metal band remakes Bomfunk MC's Freestyler music video

    Party like it's 1999: Finnish power metal band Battledragon covers and remakes Bomfunk MC's video from a bygone era of Minidisk Walkmans and cool remotes. Here it is: Finland lacks an internationally known music scene compared to, say, Sweden which has produced hit phenomena ever since the days of ABBA. A specific genre is something of an exception: Finland is estimated to have more metal bands per capita than any other country. Some of these bands are wildly successful within their genre.

    Vinyl on track to become a billion-dollar industry in 2017

    If someone told you 10 years ago that Vinyl would become a billion-dollar industry by the end of 2017, what would you say? If the answer is somewhere along the lines of “no way,” you should probably check out the data compiled by Deloitte and reported by the Financial Times. It’s interesting to note that this number of $1 billion hasn’t been surpassed for vinyl ever since the ‘80s during its golden era.

    This Is Spinal Tap’s $400 Million Lawsuit

    In comedy, as in rock ’n’ roll, nothing is quite as easy as it looks. And so it makes sense that several years before the 1984 release of the legendary rock ’n’ roll mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, director Rob Reiner and stars and co-writers Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, and Harry Shearer first had to make a shorter version of the same movie: a sort of sample-size Spinal Tap, meant to whet the appetite of studios that might bankroll the real thing.
