WGRD Karaoke Madness from Jackie’s Going Away Party! [Video]

Friday was Jackie's last day with us, and we're still a little sad, but we all got to go out and drink together on Friday night, so that's awesome!

Of course, Jackie and Ned freaking LOOOOVE their karaoke, too, so we had to go somewhere with it.  Little did we all know that our weekend guy, Justin, loves rocking the karaoke, let alone our buddy JoJo Girard from our sister station, WFGR!  It was a fun night of singing for all!

They hit the stage with "My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine's Ass", and blasted througha set that was almost fun-religious-revival-meets-rock-extravaganza amazing! Jesse James even plays around with his band towards the end, trying throw them off -- and, if he does, they have to drink!

Best drinking game ever.

Alter Bridge Releases Cool Animated Video for ‘Cry of Achilles’ [Video]

Alter Bridge, in case you've been in a cave for the last decade, is the band that Mark Tremonti formed after Creed dissolved, to put out music that's a bit heavier than Creed, but still melodic.

He snatched up one of the best singers around right now, Myles Kennedy, and they've not looked back!

The new album, Fortress, came out last year, and it's freaking amazing!  If you don't have it, pick this album up and play it in your car REALLY LOUD. Or in your home. Either way, it's great.

Babymetal Rocks Sonisphere — Even Bringing a Wall of Death!

So, the Japanese are crazy.  Not in the kill-everyone-while-in-your-underwear kind of way, but in a "wtf is going on over there" kind of way.

The big export right now is a band called Babymetal, which is their fusion of extreme metal brutality and cuteness.  Why?  Because that's what pops into their minds.  I'm telling you, there's something in the water or something over there.
