Getting laid is, hands down, the best thing in the world. The only way you can do better than getting your rocks off is having an awesome soundtrack to accompany it. A great band helps to set the tone for your boning and gives you an auditory cue for when to pick up the pace or slacken off. Check out our list of 10 bands and artists to crank up the next time you hook up after the hump... we mean, jump.
There are varying degrees of NSFW. Streaming American Idol at work will probably get you a slap on the wrist while watching this music video for The Connects' "Summer In the City" featuring Playboy model and burlesque star Tali De'Mar will most likely get you fired (or high fived). Tali was Playboy's Cyber Girl of the Week in May 2010 and has appeared on the covers of Xtreme Magazine and 24/7 Magazine. She's also modeled for Viva Van Story's Hardcover Bullet Bras and Back Seat Bettys. Check her out in The Connects music video then peep her stats and pics after the jump.
Leave your glass slippers at home this weekend because you'll need your dancing shoes for this ball.

Check the ingredients and tell me if you feel any differently: Take New York City, add another island, non-stop music, two stages, a lineup that has something for everyone, and beer pong - which I will be winning quickly because I want to watch the shows.

Last night, the Mavs avenged their '06 Finals loss to the Heat with a decisive Game 6 victory over the Big Three in Miami for their first NBA title. It seems everyone and their Delonte West-banging mother rooted agaisnt the cHeat, painting Lebron, D-Wade, and Bosh like immature, taunting, childish, crybaby super villains. We feel Twitter is always a good measuring stick / barometer for public reaction, so it's no surprise that #heatlockerroomplaylist is trending.

With its hard, murderous bass and insane highs and lows, dubstep really could be the low down, dirtiest genre of music out there. I know from personal experience, as it's the reason for my sudden entry into puberty. The guys in this video seem to understand the power of dubstep after they pick up what appears to be a simple pair of headphones. By the way, the song you hear in the video is "Louder"- DJ Fresh (Doctor P & Flux Pavilion Remix). Check it out after the jump!
As the late, great lead singer of Sublime Bradley Nowell once sang “Summer time and the living’s easy." What makes the living easy (besides the weather, beaches, pools, barbecues, girls, and baseball)? How about the crazy good concerts and music festivals? There is nothing better than going to see a show on a nice summer day or night with a fun group of friends. Although in past years ticket prices have been rather outrageous, many artists are making changes to accommodate their fans in today’s tough economic times. I have put together a little guide to let you know about some great shows worth catching this summer. Check it out after the jump!

May 17th is Trent Reznor's 46th birthday. For those of you who are unaware of Trent's work, he was the front man for Nine Inch Nails, which makes his Oscar for Best Soundtrack (The Social Network) even more impressive.

In celebration of his arrival into this twisted world, here are 46 other fun facts about Trent you might not have known about. Check 'em out after the jump!
Mary Jane and musicians have been traveling companions since the two were introduced to each other, and they show no signs of breaking up. Her smooth caress has inspired many to use their hands to walk up and down a guitar fretboard after loading a bowl or rolling a joint. Throughout the generations of shredders, bluesmen, rockers, rollers and mamma-jammas, the romance has remained ablaze. Which guitarists are enamored most with the green goddess? Look, listen and learn after the jump.

Blige, and Theophilus London. Check 'em out and vote for your favorite after the jump!
The United States of America. Home of the free, home of the brave, and the home to the vile cesspool of filth that is the music industry! Every year or so, mankind is helpless against an onslaught of music so awful and offensive that we're forced to buckle from the pressure and helplessly allow the blood to gush from our ears like Old Faithful! While the list of horrible music is innumerable, which ones make us want to rip our ear drums out or write to our congressman in indignation?

Watch out Ringtone Rap, because yesterday, Tyler the Creator's new album "Goblin" leaked. If you've never heard of him, you should check him out. Why? Because imagine Eminem wrote lyrics on the worst day of his life and that's what this twisted 20-year-old comes up with on a regular basis. And unlike that Juggalo Screamcore baloney, Tyler actually makes it work, spitting fire that comes with cockroaches and vomit (just watch the video below and you'll see what we mean). While he gets a bad rap from the media because of his content, he claims that some of it he means and some of it he doesn't. Read the lyrics and check out the videos after the jump!
The music scene can be a rough place for new, up-and-coming bands trying to get some exposure in a world that's already over-saturated with other artists vying for the same goal. With a lack of outlets to do so, many bands lose the ambition to keep pushing on and call the quits on their musical journey. Wicked Audio - an industry leader in headphone manufacturing and design - has heard the pleas of the despondent and have created a revolutionary new platform on Facebook that allows bands to get their moment in the spotlight - WCKD Radio. Take a listen after the jump!

The Smoking Gun released Pauly D's tour rider recently and it might open some eyes. By no means is this the most ridiculous tour rider, and given Pauly D's unbelievable attention to detail it's almost to be expected but it brings to mind other historically absurd requests and demands from the music industry's most peculiar and fickle artists. See our list then check out the Jersey Shore star's demands after the jump.
For those of you watching this video right now in the middle of a meal, I suggest you turn away. Because what you're about to see is, to put it lightly, nauseating. Really, who is this woman and what is she even doing at what looks like the saddest rap concert in the history of, well, rap concerts? Judging by the looks of her, she's been getting her groupie thing on since the Altamont Free Concert back in '69 and she shows no signs of stopping - much to our dismay... If you have an iron stomach, check out this grooving granny for yourself!
April is International Guitar Month. During these shower-heavy days, musicians who get randy over riffs are encouraged to pick up an axe and shred their cares away. Unlike most other instruments, the guitar comes in a multitude of shapes and sizes. Some even talk! So, why April? We have no idea. Is it because the best guitarists were born in April? Because the first guitar was invented in April? While searching the far corners of the universe for the answer, we stumbled across some pretty gnarly pics of kick ass guitars that will split your skull. Check' em out below and rock on!

Is Kanye West the contemporary version of Bob Dylan? Hard to picture. Both have been embroiled in controversy. Both are considered eccentric. But their genres and styles are completely different, right? Maybe not. The folks at Voxy.com decided to put Kanye’s "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" (2010) up against Dylan’s "Highway 61 Revisited" (1965) in the infographic by peeling away the layers and getting down to the core of each artists' melodies by the numbers. Check out the infographic after the jump!

Check out his picks and listen to the jams after the jiznump! (EW!)
Right around this time around 49 years ago, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met future Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones at a London blues club. The rest, as they say, is history. Since that fateful day, the Rolling Stones have become one of the greatest (some would say THE greatest) rock bands of all-time. As for the eternal one, Keith Richards, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him as the "10th greatest guitarist of all time". He co-wrote 14 songs with Mick Jagger that were listed on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". And, he's got one smoking hot daughter. We honor his timeless spirit with this gallery of rarely seen photos. See 'em after the jump!
To quote the great Bill Hicks, "We live in a world where John Lennon was murdered, yet Barry Manilow continues to put out f**king albums." And, even though Kurt Cobain's death was ruled a suicide surrounded by controversy, the end result holds equally sad but true. Seventeen years after his tragic death, you'd be hard pressed to find another Kurt Cobain. He, like Lennon, Elvis, MJ, and Dylan, is in a class of his own, imitated but never duplicated. Though he felt his music had ceased to inspire, a litany of fans, critics, and respected publications would feel otherwise. As our tribute, we’ve pulled together 57 rarely seen photos and videos of Kurt with his fellow band members. Come as you are and see them after the jump.
Look at this hard rockin' geriatric bust a move! While most senior citizens are sitting around complaining about gout or a nasty case of gallstones, this guy's kicking those things to the curb and getting down to some Led Zeppelin tunes, even if they happen to be sung by a cover band. And for an old man that's clearly inebriated, you really have to give him credit for not stumbling around, falling flat on his ass. It's a real shame that Led Zeppelin won't be doing anymore reunion tours because this old guy would make for one sick opening act! But it makes you wonder, if grandpa is this cool, how awesome is the rest of the family? See this video for yourself!
This chick on YouTube, Cathymaay15, has only 9 uploads on her user channel over a week's time, but is already "done" with the world's largest video portal. Why's that? She has a knack for singing jams in the worst possible way. Terrible? No, terribly AWESOME! I've heard a million covers of The Outhere Brothers classic, "Boom Boom Boom" but this version might be the one you just...can't...stop...playing. Everybody say way-ho after the jump!

If there's anything worse than an obnoxious, nausea-inducing viral video, it's a shameless parody of said viral video - and Rebecca Black's "Friday" has them in spades! While most of them are either people's live-from-their-bedroom reaction videos (like others really care what they think) or some goons hitting the street lip-syncing to the song, I actually found one that, despite the protests of my jaded heart, was legitimately funny and had some great production values (as well as giving us an idea of what Rebecca Black will look like in 20 years). On top of that, this parody's packing shrimp juice and vomit jokes aplenty - dammit, they got me! As great as this parody is, it got only around 200,000 views - so let's change all that by watching this video!
Last week, Rihanna's S&M remix featuring J. Cole crushed the competition with 42% of the vote for favorite Song of the Week ("SOTW").

Lamenting over the fact that those jazzy 80s-style saxophone solos will never make a comeback? Ask and you shall receive, because the Sexy Sax Man has heard your prayers and delivers with a soothing rendition of "Careless Whisper"!

Those crazy Russians, am I right? Seems they're always surprising us with their knowledge about space and passion for trippy music. I honestly didn't know drumstep existed before this morning. I assume it's the reason 2002's Drumline was made?

Whatcha know about video editing software? Peep the video after the jump!
Last week, we had a three way tie for favorite Song of the Week ("SOTW") between Saigon's "Come On, Baby", Radiohead's "Lotus Flower", and The Beatles' "Golden Slumbers".

The journey from real-life street thug - with six years in the slammer - to reel-life rap gangsta - on HBO's Entourage - was a learning experience, not a glamorous fairy tale for the artist known as Saigon. His talent for hip-hop later garnered attention from Atlantic Records, plus helped land him a recurring role on the hit HBO series. But a disinterest in making pop records and a controversial physical altercation with another well known rapper would eventually grind the release of his touted debut full length record to a complete halt.

No matter how hard you try, there's one thing in the world that you'll never come back from if you're an up-and-coming rapper, it's blowing chunks on stage. Case in point: this guy at an amateur rap off.

On March 9th, 1997, the world lost an icon, an entertainer, a father, a beloved member of the hip hop community, a visionary, a lyrical genius, and a true urban legend.

In early February, we showed you yearbook photos of a former fat kid turned skinny rock star comedian and a beautiful blonde who went from hoodies to hot hand bras.

As you know we're big fans of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central. His stand up comedy special, "Happy Thoughts" premieres Sunday, March 6th on Comedy Central with the DVD coming out on March 8th. We were lucky enough to get our hands on an advanced copy but we're not greedy, so we decided to host a contest. You might be familiar with Slim Thug's "Like a Boss". Lonely Island produced a parody song also called, "Like a Boss", which was then followed by "Like a Bosh". Well, since Daniel loves Twitter so much, we're asking you to tweet "Like a Tosh".

You've all probably seen this by now, but holy sh*t is this lip dub video the gayest, funniest thing to prance across my desk in a long, long time. One of my friends posted it on Facebook and I didn't know what to think at first, but I was oddly compelled to keep watching. Like a really long joke that you have a good feeling about the punchline. The 3:20 mark or so is where I lost it. I know. In internet time, that's like 5 years. See the video along with a bonus video featuring Playboy Playmates and power tools after the jump!

It's usually no big surprise when movies get nominated for the Oscars, actors or actresses maybe, but films? Usually the big contenders are ones that are either critically acclaimed, released in the fall or released in very limited markets. But every now and then the Academy will throw a rather odd nomination into the mix just to shake things up. They usually don't win, but it's interesting that they recognize them. Here are a few movies that have found their way into the Oscar nominations that are considered either bad, campy, cult or just plain not Oscar material. See the full list after the jump!

Rolling Stone ranked him as the 12th greatest guitarist and 45th greatest singer of all time. MTV ranked him 7th in the "22 Greatest Voices in Music".
