    Let's get one thing perfectly clear: Blowfly is the original dirty rapper. Before anyone in 2 Live Crew was old enough to set foot into a peepshow stall or buy a pack of cigarettes, Clarence "Blowfly" Reid was spewing forth raucous raps like "Spermy Night In Georgia" and "What a Difference a Lay Mak ...

    Pat Robertson: Has The Man Ever Been Wrong?

    The dust had barely settled in Port-au-Prince following Tuesday's 7.0 magnitude earthquake before opportunistic Jesus-bot Pat Robertson offered his take on the tragedy.

    He Said She Said: Songs Guaranteed to Offend the Opposite Sex, Part 2

    It's been 25 years since Tipper Gore and the ladies of the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) self-righteously rode the the rescue of delicate ears across America, claiming that rock music was "infecting the youth of the world with messages they cannot handle."

    Texas Gave Birth to the Worst (Scottish) Album Ever

    If you say you’re from Texas anywhere in the world, you can of course expect to be treated like royalty.

    Best Albums of the Year, 2006 Part II

    Hellogoodbye, Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!
