Three Days Grace Releases ‘Human Race’ Lyric Video to Prepare Us for Their New Album [Video]

The new Three Days Grace album, Human, comes out next Tuesday, and to prepare us for the new release, the band has released a new song to get us ready. The song is called 'Human Race', and it's a bit different than the last two songs they've sent us from the new album.

'Human Race' is a lot more moody, and has more synth sounds in it than either 'I Am Machine' or 'Painkiller'.

Twister Sister and Adrenaline Mob Drummer A.J. Pero Died Today on Tour

Twisted Sister/Adrenaline Mob drummer A.J. Pero passed away this morning, in his bunk on the Adrenaline Mob tour bus.

Twisted Sister has always been one of those bands that you love, but sometimes forget about. Not because they're easy to forget, but because they haven't released anything new in a while. But a great band, with amazing songs.

When I first started listening to them, A.J. Pero was the monster behind the drum kit, and was the guy everyone saw playing that memorable drum intro for 'We're Not Gonna Take It' from Stay Hungry, one of the best songs and videos from the 80s.

Humor-Cored Band Psychostick Parodies Kenny Loggins’ ‘Danger Zone’ [Video]

Psychostick could be considered one of the greatest bands of all time.

I'm actually a little suprised that they haven't performed a Gilda's LaughFest show. Maybe I can convince the group to perform next year!

Psychostick has released a new video for its latest song -- a metal cover of the Top Gun movie theme song, "Danger Zone." Don't deny it; you know the Kenny Loggins song.

Nintendo Begins Mailing ‘Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack’ to Its Rewards Members [Video]

I purchased both versions of the new Super Smash Bros. game on Nintendo 3DS and WiiU when it came out this past year.

It's a fun game, but not something that I could sit and play for any prolonged period of time.

However, pretty much the only reason that I even purchased the 3DS version was for one reason.
