    Aftermath Extra: The Best Concerts of the Year, Part 7

    Butthole Surfers, Meridian, October 23: "I can't speak for the band, but frontman Gibby Haynes was either on something unknown to even Central American shamen or, well, just being Gibby Haynes. It took an hour before I understood a single lyric that ...

    Classic Rock Corner: Blues/Soul/R&B In Memoriam 2008

    Retro Active: U2 Will Be With You Again

    Every year, at almost exactly this time, if you're like me, you can't get U2's goddamned "New Year's Day" out of your head. And, if you're like me, it drives you insane, not because of the quality of the song, but ... well, yeah, it is the quality of...

    Glasvegas: Glasvegas

    It's no great revelation to say that Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day, coming as it does 24 hours before Barack Obama's inauguration, will be the most-celebrated MLK Day to date. Musically, we all know U2's anthemic if factually incorrect "Pride (...
