    ? We like fireworks and explosions, and with July 4th right around the corner, we are sure to get our fill. Things burning or blowing up are pretty cool, except of course if it's your house, car or business. In that case, it's an awful, horr...

    Filter

    Filter hit modern-rock radio hard and heavy with 1995's industrial-tinged single "Hey Man, Nice Shot" from the Cleveland-formed group's debut Short Bus. For lead singer Richard Patrick, the band's upcoming album The Trouble with Angels is a step forw...

    Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Bettye LaVette

    Robert Plant raised a lot more than sand on that 2007 album with Alison Krauss, one of the very few Americana albums to go platinum since O Brother, Where Art Thou? He also raised five Grammys in February 2009 -- Raising Sand was released too late to...

    Keane

    It would have been easy for Britpop trio Keane to stick to the Snow Patrol and Coldplay bandwagoneering that they exhibited on 2004's debut LP, the VH1-embraced Hopes and Fears. Instead of resting with that sound, albeit how profitable it could be, K...

    Ke$ha

    If Lady Gaga is somehow too arty or brainy for you, look no further than Ke$ha, the bane of all those who must type her name on a regular basis. Does there really have to be a dollar sign in the middle? Initially known for singing the hook on Flo Rid...

    The Curious Case of the People's Champ - Paul Wall is neither a cartoon nor an asshole.

    When you call Paul Wall's cell phone and he doesn't answer, the automatic voice mail picks up, as automatic voice mails are wont to do: "The mailbox belonging to 'Whut it dew?' is full and cannot accept new messages at this time." Yes. "Whut it...
