So after much fanfare leading up to Nickelback’s performance during the halftime show during yesterday’s Thanksgiving Day Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers match-up, including their own self-deprecating take at it on Funny or Die, the band took to the field in fine form.
Churning out their own brand of iconic metal for 30 years now, Metallica may be one of the most influential bands in the world, but according to drummer Lars Ulrich, “I don’t think Metallica would be where Metallica is today if it wasn’t for Iron Maiden.”
Leave it to Funny or Die to remedy a touchy situation with a little comedy! By now we all know that a few people in Detroit are not happy about Nickelback’s upcoming performance during the United Way Thanksgiving Halftime Show during the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers game on Thanksgiving Day. The online petition hasn’t deterred the band too much, but why not have a little fun with it.
Nickelback is set to release their new album ‘Here and Now’ on Nov. 21, but fans hoping to hear it a little bit sooner can now head over to iTunes at the link below, where the full album is streaming for free all week!
For anyone longing for vintage Creed, then we’ve got some good news. The band recently announced a six-date run of special shows where they’ll play back to back shows of their debut release ‘My Own Prison’ and their second album ‘Human Clay,’ respectively, in their entirety.
‘That Metal Show’’s Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine recently interviewed Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses for an upcoming episode of the show, set to air on VH1 Classic on Nov. 11. On Trunk’s radio show last night (Nov. 4), he talked about the epic interview and teased a few clips for listeners.
Soundgarden fans, rejoice! Chris Cornell recently told Billboard.com that the new Soundgarden album is “mostly done.” He went on to say that, “We just need to finish a couple of songs and mix it, so that will be happening probably over the holidays.”
Back in September we brought you news about the 2012 Gigantour featuring Megadeth teaming up with Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil, and now the dates for the epic tour have been announced. The bands, all hand-picked by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, offer up an eclectic mix of speed metal meets thrash meets rockabilly meets goth rock. That’s a whole lot of metal on one bill, and a lot of bang for your buck – just as Mustaine planned.
