The rising Phoenix, the falling boy

Posted by DJ • March 31, 2013 at 09:47 AM

It’s been 5 years since the last Fall Out Boy album. And now, the Pop-Punk band is ready to reclaim their spot in popular culture with the ambitiously titled new album, Save Rock and Roll. Judging by the great reception that the first single received, they might actually be right about it…. So see how The Phoenix rises from the dead, with a turbo-charged new song from The Fall Out Boy.

Rage against Wall Street

Posted by DJ • October 25, 2011 at 09:20 AM

The Occupy Wall Street protests are gathering momentum, spreading across the U.S, while chiming in with similar movements around the world.  One of the bands that supported the causes of OWS, way before the movement was conceived, is Rage Against the Machine, who were, well, raging against the machine since the early 90’s.

This track is from 1999, from the album The Battle of Los Angeles and it sounds like a perfect anthem for the current wave of protest, 12 years later.

We built this city on eighties pop

Posted by DJ • October 24, 2011 at 01:07 PM

Patrick Stump caught your attention for the first time as lead singer of pop punk trio, Fall Out Boy.  Since the band is on an indefinite break, it’s time for Stump to step out as a solo artist. His new album, Soul Punk, surely presents him more as a soul/r’n’b crooner than as punk.

This City sounds a lot like Hall and Oates, Starship, and other blue-eyed 80’s soul legends.  It also features Lupe Fiasco, which is generally always a good thing.

And while we’re at it, we’ve just published on iMesh a new playlist of songs, selected by Patrick Stump. check it out!

Veteran Pop Punkers- Blink 182- are back after 5 year hiatus.  They’ve reformed a couple of years ago and the fruits of their reformation is their new album Neighborhoods.

The single Heart’s All Gone proves they haven’t lost any of their mojo and energy.
