Hello Internet, you great yawning maw that consumes our every waking moment, what do you have for us this time?

Like Grindcore father, like Grindcore Daughter!

Glam rocker or Drag Queen?  Take the quiz!

Interesting article from David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven) on why online radio and music services like Pandora aren’t being fair in how they pay royalties to bands.

And while we’re on the subject of songs, I loved this post from The Onion’s AV Club on the Best Album-Opening One-Two Punches.

Okay, so this article is from January, but let’s face it the Indiepocalypse is here!

Have you ever wondered what country is the most metal?  Well find out what country has the most metal bands per capita!

And once you get there make sure you know your metal, because metal fans write letters to the editor!

Love classic album covers?  How about kittens?  If you answered yes to both, this Pigeons and Planes post is catnip for you!

And if you loved that last one, how about the same thing done with athletes?

…and socks?

Arrested Development is back, and what better way to celebrate it’s return than with fake album covers!

And Cris Shapan created these hilarious album covers that never were, but should have been!

I love architecture, so this Architizer post appealed to me.

And I absolutely loved this post on Music Machinery asking the question – Have Artist Names Been Getting Longer?

Speaking of band names, if you’re having trouble coming up with one you’ll want to use this great tool frizbee sent to me.

Larry sent me this Paste magazine article on the 30 Worst Album Covers of the 80’s and 90’s.  Discuss.

Tastebuds.fm claims these are the Worst Album Covers of All Time!

And if terrible album covers are your thing you’ve got to join this Facebook Group.

I know a few of you thought the cover of David Bowie’s latest album was terrible, but it turns out David doesn’t even want his visage to appear on a new reissue of a Morrissey single.  Someone’s getting shy in his old age.

Thanks to Deadspin for making Beyonce the focus of one of their recent Photoshop contests.

theHoseman recently sent me this fascinating City Page article on the legendary Minneapolis watering hole The CC Club.  Definitely give it a read.

And lastly, for those seeking to use Photoshop to create their own vision of beauty, Dove got the last laugh with a Photoshop action that punked them.  But in the end, their “Real Beauty Sketches” campaign while powerful also got punked, and punked, and punked.

    The Marilyn Manson album (Mechanical Animals) done in socks is brilliant! I may need to do a sock-inspired cover myself…
