Brazil is a pretty lax place.You can get away with a lot of things most of the time: looting, mugging, rape, murder… even mullets are allowable.

Any lingering fears that Patrick Stump’s second chin had imbued him, Samson-like, with his precocious musical talent have thus far proved unfounded – and a good thing, too, because the weight appears to be staying off and the erstwhile Fall Out Boy frontman has a solo career to launch. As a prelude to the release […]

How bad does a song have to be to get rejected from a free-to-download tribute album?  Listen to Thursday’s cover of Bad Religion’s  “Generator” and decide for yourself. While Geoff Rickley & co. manage to redeem themselves ever so slightly in the song’s straightforward second half, it’s no small feat how the first half of […]


If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “songs about Satan are great and everything, but I really wish more death metal bands wrote about dinosaurs,” then this track’s for you. Here’s “Reptilian Age,” the fourth track off Blood Rainbow’s Lethal Message. Blood Rainbow – Reptilian Age THE BLOOD OF PREHISTORIC ANIMALS WAS FLOWING LIKE WATER WHEN […]


Here at Sputnikmusic we have an unwritten editorial rule not to get involved in politics (at least as much that’s enforceable on a site staffed mainly by college-age pinkos) so I’m going to more or less throw this out without making reference to left or right, conservative or liberal. Hell, I’m not even American – […]

It’s with a heavy heart and jazz hands that we bid farewell today to two of our longest-serving staff members. Channing Freeman and Nick Greer have given a lot to the site in their time here – Nick being one of the few to remain from the site’s launch – and we thank them for […]


Watch Ezra Koenig, of Vampire Weekend, and both of The Black Keys slug it out for Stephen Colbert’s “Best Alternative Music Album” vote; the dubiously titled Grammy category introduced in 1991 to recognize the section of the music industry that existed “outside of the mainstream music consciousness”. Past winners include 7x  platinum Parachutes and 8x […]


Yeah, that Hanks. Chet Hanks, son of Oscar-winning actor Tom, is the latest celebrity offspring to try his hand at becoming a rapper. Hanks, rapping under the name Chet Haze, wisely sticks to the subjects he knows best. Not quite his cameo appearance in the recent Indiana Jones movie or the dastardly butler forgetting to fold […]
