Watch Bon Iver Play Radio City

Bon Iver played three nights NYC's Radio City Music Hall last week. The folky band played a beautiful 97-minute set on Friday, the final evening, and it's streaming on YouTube for the next two days. » 9/24/12 7:00pm 9/24/12 7:00pm

Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze

Jimi Hendrix was one of the greatest guitar players of all time—something that still rings true today. Forty-two years ago, he was tragically found dead at the age of 27. In honor of the late rock star, here's a video of him tearing up the classic "Purple Haze" at Woodstock. His unforgettable performance happened a… » 9/18/12 7:00pm 9/18/12 7:00pm

Pusha T: The Morning, Featuring Raekwon, Common, 2 Chainz, CyHi Da…

Yesterday Kanye West's "Cruel Summer" Mixtape leaked. In the typical grandiose style of 'ye, it's packed with just about every artist who's big in hip hop right now. The morning is one of the songs off the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, and it might be one of the first hip hop bangers to make a Mark Zuckerberg… » 9/14/12 6:40pm 9/14/12 6:40pm

Bill Withers: Use Me

Sometimes you find yourself in an awful relationship with no way out. Your friends tell you need to quit the situation, but you just can't. Something about it still feels good. In those times, Bill Withers' words just sound so right. I wanna spread the news/if it feels this good getting used/just keep on using me… » 9/13/12 9:00pm 9/13/12 9:00pm

Do You Google The Person You're Dating?

Facebook-stalking your ex is one thing. But what about the person you're currently dating? Do you google them, too? On the one hand, how could you not? But on the other hand, you run the risk of learning something about them that you'd rather not know. » 9/12/12 9:30pm 9/12/12 9:30pm

Deftones: Back to School

School is back in session, for most of you. And if it's not yet, it soon will be. Might as well make the most of the "back to school" spirit by listening to the Deftones song "Back to School." Which, unlike tests and homework and gym class, is actually pretty great. » 9/12/12 7:30pm 9/12/12 7:30pm

200 Cigarettes: Socializing Before Smartphones Sure Was Hard

It's New Year's Eve 1981, and no one seems to know where the party's at. Literally. A bunch of chain-smoking, sex-addled twentysomethings almost miss their New Year's bash because they are having too hard a time finding their way to the house party they'd planned to attend. » 9/11/12 8:00pm 9/11/12 8:00pm

The-Dream: Dope Bitch (NSFW)

This song is about girls. Girls and cocaine. Lots and lots of cocaine. Actual rivers of white running out of the noses of beautiful, scantily-clad women. But it's so almost the weekend and we don't judge your after hours activity. And this track is just so wonderful and so catchy, illicit activities aside. » 9/07/12 8:00pm 9/07/12 8:00pm

Future Islands: Grease

Last year, Future Islands released the album On the Water, and they've been touring ever since. The record was—and is—odd and lovely and wildly underrated. And the beautiful, slightly sad, new video for "Grease" embodies all those sentiments. » 9/06/12 8:00pm 9/06/12 8:00pm

A Cooler Bag for All Seasons

With Labor Day behind us, summer is officially over. But people still drink beer and other cold things, which means this cooler bag still works even as we enter the chillier fall months. » 9/04/12 5:00pm 9/04/12 5:00pm

Cher Lloyd: Want U Back

Cher Lloyd (19) got her start on the UK's pop talent competition The X Factor back in 2010, and although she didn't win the ultimate competition, Cher's place as a finalist certainly helped kickstart her career. » 9/03/12 6:00pm 9/03/12 6:00pm

American Juggalos: A Journey into the Dark Carnival

The world of juggalos—die-hard followers of the band Insane Clown Posse—is weird but super intriguing. They have a yearly festival in August, it's weird, dark, and hard to wrap your head around, and it's chronicled in this short documentary, American Juggalo. » 8/31/12 9:20pm 8/31/12 9:20pm

So You Want to Watch Porn in Your Dorm Room

Kids are flocking back to college, their noggins aching for facts and ultimate frisbee, or whatever. For some of you, it'll be the first time living in a small room with another person. So, uh, how are you supposed to watch porn? » 8/31/12 2:40pm 8/31/12 2:40pm

Death Becomes Her: How Far Would You Go to Stay Forever Young?

Death Becomes Her is the best thing that happened to the world in 1992. Seriously, the fact that this movie is now available to stream on HBOGo is BIG NEWS. Because it's not on Netflix. Weirdly. » 8/30/12 8:30pm 8/30/12 8:30pm

Ciara featuring Ludacris: Ride

Ciara is unreal. Where did she come from? How does she dance like that? And why have the Atlanta Braves not publicly thanked her for her support of their franchise? » 8/30/12 7:00pm 8/30/12 7:00pm

Monica: Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)

When I was in fourth grade, Santa (my mom) dropped Ultimate Hip Hop Party 1998 in my stocking. He (she) probably shouldn't have done that because there was some really profane stuff on there. For example, "Doin' It" by LL Cool J. But there was also this classic track by Monica. » 8/29/12 7:00pm 8/29/12 7:00pm
