    Gary Numan: the Dark Genius Behind a Broken Mind

    "There are still people trying to work out what a genius Gary Numan is" -- Prince In the U.S., Gary Numan is mostly viewed a one-hit wonder. His 1980 Top 10 hit "Cars" (and its accompanying iconic video) remains a perfect little time capsule of synthy New Wave keyboards and a contagious melody guid ... More >>

    Top Five Reasons Nine Inch Nails' New Track Sucks

    Ladies and gentlemen, I am a massive Nine Inch Nails fan. As an emo teenager, that was my band. Trent Reznor's angsty lyrics might fall short of the standards of an adult seeking intelligent explorations of the human psyche via pop lyrics, but no one seemed to understand my pain better other than Mo ...

    5 Bands Studies Show Make You a Bad Person

    We've been hearing for years that rock music makes us bad people. We've heard it from our parents, from teachers, from those goody-goody kids at school.

    Fetal Disgorge Endorses Albino Race Hunting

    It's a well-known fact that most band names are essentially gobbledygook, but here at Rocks Off we're trying hard to find meaning in the oddest monikers.
