Nothing More Unleashes New Video for ‘Mr. MTV’

Nothing More has become pretty good friends with Grand Rapids over the course of 2014, playing here three times already!

They first came to visit the station and then rocked with Chevelle earlier this year, and then after they played at Rock on the Range, they came back to rock the Stache last month.  They even came out and played paintball with GRD and some winners that day!

Most recently, they kicked serious ass with Hellyeah, Volbeat, and Five Finger Death Punch at the Deltaplex on Sunday night

Decrepit Birth Drummer Records Amazing ‘Fart Metal’ Song [Video]

I feel like I'm six years old again. I'm laughing my butt off at this new video, where "Fart Metal" has been created.

The drummer from the metal band Decrepit Birth has recording a new song, featuring his very real, very hysterical, farts! I can barely type, I'm laughing so much. No one should get this much entertainment from something so dumb, but we do!

Clutch Rocked the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids [Video]

When I asked for tickets to the September 13 Clutch show at the Orbit Room, Metalhead Ned looked at me funny. I get it, my look doesn't scream "ROCK!!!". However, to my credit, I knew one Clutch song (Yes, "Spacegrass". Which honestly, I always thought was titled "Jesus on the Dashboard"...)

Mostly, I explained, my boyfriend wanted to go. "Yeah, he seems like a Clutch fan", was Ned's response. "Um," I thought, "What does that even mean? Because he has a beard?"

After seeing the show, I realize it's a pretty awesome compliment! Because Clutch fans are some of the most passionate, excited, loyal fans I've seen!
