    Road Warriors Dr. Dog: "We're a City-By-City Band"

    Dr. Dog aren't the same band they used to be. Gone are the days of the gritty, ramshackle group of Philadelphia drifters who firmly planted themselves in the world of indie rock. Now, for a band that has seen all the successes you could ask for after more than a decade, the six-piece is steadily doi ... More >>

    Six Metalheads and Punks Who Went Folk

    Hey everyone, here's a thing I've noticed: lots of guys seem to "mature" and quit metal and punk to do other stuff.

    Emo. The word conjures so many images. For your average American, it will make them think of black eyeliner, wrist-cutting, and essentially hair metal for the '00s. For hardcore kids, they'll think of Jawbreaker. But either way you slice it, emo has had its ups and downs as a genre and has changed ... More >>
