    Calling All Trolls

    With an appearance on South Park under his belt, Dave Grohl wearing his T-shirt onstage, and "Holy Diver" the only experiment that didn't suck Satan's penis on Pat Boone's 1997 lounge-metal CD, Ronnie James Dio could almost be mistaken for hip. So if...

    Hardcore Jollies

    Last year's renaissance of interest in house was based largely on a craving for pleasantness in dance music. With techno and drum'n'bass both locked in grinding hair-shirt minimalism, house's sensuousness beckoned hipsters like a quenching oasis. But...

    Rock and Roll Part 2 1/2

    Three things strike me most about the house records I've enjoyed cleaning the dishes to these last few years: A surprising number of them have come from France (Daft Punk, Cassius, Bob Sinclar), most of them have been relatively vocal-free (or at mos...

    To answer your question, no, they haven't tried to make "Tubthumping II." Chumbawamba are perfectly aware that most of their listeners think their 10th or so album is their second, and they're beating everyone else to the backlash. The only song on W...

    Dear Talib, Okay, so maybe you're rightjuxtaposing two seemingly random albums like Beanie Sigel's The Truth and Dead Prez's Let's Get Free isn't quite an impossible feat. And I second your emotion, it would be presumptuous to expect all rappers to...

    Timbaland sure is on the radio a lot, even when he's not. Turn on Hot 97 right now, wait 15 minutes, and you'll hear either Aaliyah's "Try Again," Nas and Ginuwine's "You Owe Me," or the Lox's "Ryde or Dye Chick/Bitch," all of which he officially pro...
