The Top Five Rage Against the Machine Songs Ever

Rage Against The Machine is an edgy, sometimes confrontational rock band that made a huge impact on their way in and also made no excuses as to their very brash method of calling out various components of American culture. They were an answer to those that needed something extra in their lives during the 1990’s and became a strong and very influential voice in the music world that people locked on and became enamored of early on. Unfortunately in 2000 the band split and front man for Soundgarden, the late great Chris Cornell, was called in to fill in the

On July 21st, 2016 – at a time when nearly every political pundit and member of the mainstream media thought that Donald Trump didn't have even a chance of beating Hillary ClintonMichael Moore went public with his belief that the Republican candidate was going to win. "You are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president," he wrote in a pleading messages to Americans,

This “Bulls On Parade” Owen Wilson Mashup is All You Need Today

Rage Against The Machine is a well-known rock group but when you add in Owen Wilson saying ‘wow’ it actually makes sense. In some case his repetition of that word kind of sounds like a cat winding up for a really spectacular howl or yell, but in others it’s almost a whispered utterance that conveys some real feeling. He’s a good actor and a great comedian but you kind of have to wonder if he knows just how often he says the word ‘wow’. Seriously, he uses it a lot. These mashups are usually a lot of fun and this

Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine Headline New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees
Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine have both earned nominations for induction into Cleveland, Ohio’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their very first year of eligibility. That said, Thom Yorke’s (pictured above) group might no-show the event, even if they’re ultimately selected. “I’d rather be sitting at home in front of the fire or going to a gig,” bandmate Ed O’Brien told Rolling Stone in June when asked about the possible honor. “Brits are not very good at slapping ourselves on the back. It seems very show-biz and I’m not very show-biz.

Juliette Lewis Talks New Rock Doc, Working With Dave Grohl

Juliette Lewis Talks New Rock Doc, Working With Dave Grohl
"I always liken myself to the bearded lady," says Juliette Lewis. "Because I'm an actress turned musician, a woman doing male-dominated rock & roll. ... I'm the oddity at the freak show, you know?"

Lewis is speaking with Rolling Stone from New York City where, in a few hours, she'll be attending the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of a new documentary on her musical life, Hard Lovin' Woman. The Michael Rapaport-directed short, which will be available on Red Bull TV beginning April 23rd, chronicles Lewis' mid-2000s turn away from a

9 soundtracks that outshone their movies: Tron Legacy, Twilight and more

9 soundtracks that outshone their movies: Tron Legacy, Twilight and more
These days no movie can get away without a tie-in soundtrack. The latest is Fifty Shades of Grey, which brings together everyone from Beyoncé, Sia and Ellie Goulding.

However, there's always a danger that the album can outshine the movie it originates from. Digital Spy highlights 9 instances where this is the case.

1. Tron: Legacy (2010)

Disney's belated sequel to its cult '80s hit Tron unfortunately forgot to bother with anything approaching a coherent story or believable characters - but what a display of visuals and sound. Daft Punk took care of the latter, crafting a score that fizzed with electronic pulses ripped straight from The Grid.

2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

Despite being so critically derided, the Twilight movies were consistently able to churn out impressive soundtracks. The best of them was 2009's New Moon, which collected new songs from Thom Yorke, Death Cab for Cutie, Lykke Li, The Killers,

‘The Crow’ Victims, aren’t we all

If the tragic mythology of Brandon Lee’s on-set death or one of the best 1990s soundtracks isn’t enough to have turned you onto The Crow in 1994, then maybe the current resurgence of comic book and graphic novel adaptations will do the trick. For a film steeped in a dingy combination of mid-90s grunge, steam punk, and goth culture The Crow has a surprising amount of staying power.

Alex Proyas released one of his two best films (alongside 1998’s Dark City) in 1994 and for impressionable comic book nerds, this author included, around the world it proved a watershed, picking up where another Alex – Alex Cox – left off in the early ‘80s with the punk rock wackiness of Repo Man and dystopia of Sid and Nancy.

Proyas’ music video background shows through in The Crow. Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, and Pantera were not only staples of the decade,

A Look Back at the Hits and Misses of Godzilla: The Album

It's hard not to get excited about the upcoming Godzilla reboot, but it's equally difficult to forget America's previous botched attempt at remaking the iconic monster. While I have nothing to say about Roland Emmerich's catastrophic misfire of a film that hasn't already been said countless times over the last 16 years...

I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane to look at the film's soundtrack.

Let's set the scene: the year was 1998. You couldn't go anywhere without seeing a commercial, billboard, poster or memorabilia advertising Godzilla. The multi-pronged marketing strategy also included tie-in campaigns with Taco Bell and Edy's Ice Cream, among others.

It was a time when people still paid for music, as the transition from cassettes to CDs was being made, and movie soundtracks were a big deal. Artists would provide original songs for soundtracks, and you'd have to buy the entire

Edward Snowden cheered by celebrities
As the world waits for Edward Snowden to emerge from his hideout at a Russian airport like some international fugitive version of Punxsutawney Phil, some celebrities are taking to Twitter and elsewhere to voice their support for the secrets leaker.

For those who aren’t following this thriller, it rivals anything at the box office this summer: The former Nsa contractor is holed up in the international transit zone in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport waiting for a country such as Ecuador to grant him asylum. Russian President Vladi­mir Putin is defying the White House’s demand to return Snowden to the United States,

Online Video Advertisers To Spend $667 Million In 2013 on Real-Time Bidding

2012 was a banner year for online advertising, as a whopping $387 million was spent on real-time bidding (Rtb) advertisement. According to Comscore, more than 10.4 billion video ads were served in December alone. However, if a study by Forrester Consulting is to be believed, 2013 is set to blow last year's spending out of the water. Forrester is projecting that advertisers will spend $667 million of online video Rtb over the next 12 months. Rtb refers to any ad space that is bid for by marketers every time a user accesses it. This auction style of ad includes YouTube pre-roll ads and other individually tailored ad offerings. On a side note, this explains how my one day of listening to Rage Against the Machine caused me to receive a month of Rage Against the Machine pre-roll ads
