Quickies: Facebook woes, skateboard guitars and a KILLER Kendrick / Meshuggah mashup

Quite the day here at Horns Up, wouldn’t you say? Oh well, I’ve gotta bounce, so I’m not going to glory-bask for too long here. Or at all, in fact. Let’s get right into Quickies, shall we? Here’s what we missed in the metal world today:

  • So here’s something about Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil and his Facebook account getting hacked. I dunno. I didn’t read it all. I’m frankly just stunned Vince Neil uses the Internet for things other than Seamless, Grubhub and Instagram (for all the food).
  • The admat (what the hell’s an “admat”?) for this year’s upcoming Rockstar Mayhem Festival appears to have leaked, and…well…King Diamond looks to be playing! Sure he’s surrounded by a sea of utter crap, but…King Diamond! Right?
  • Apparently Juliette Lewis is going to be singing for a Dillinger Escape Plan / Mastodon / Mars Volta / Dethklok supergroup? …okay, then!
  • Danzig is in the studio working on the follow-up to 2010’s Deth Red Sabaoth. Neato! Just don’t forget to pick up the kitty litter on the way home, Glenn!
  • This is kinda cool: three dudes from Argentina are apparently making guitars out of old skateboards. And they sound pretty damn good, too!
  • And finally, I’m in full-on Kendrick Lamar-mode this week following the early release of To Pimp a Butterfly, so you can bet your ass I was excited about this mash-up of his older tune, “Backseat Freestyle,” with Meshuggah‘s “Break Those Bones.” Give it a listen:

Must say, did not expect that to work nearly as well as it did. Anyway, that’ll do it for me. Check back tomorrow for more!

Keep it heavy,


Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
