Oh yeaye, a good music thread! I feel like I haven't listened to any new music in ages, so looking forward to checking out all your links.
For lovers of the older stuff, I can highly recommend the book "Fargo Rock City" by Chuck Klosterman.
Here's the snippet from Amazon: Empirically proving that—no matter where you are—kids wanna rock, this is Chuck Klosterman's hilrious memoir of growing up as a shameless metalhead in Wyndmere, North Dakotoa (population: 498).
With a voice like Ace Frehley's guitar, Klosterman hacks his way through hair-band history, beginning with that fateful day in 1983 when his older brother brought home Mötley Crüe's Shout at the Devil. The fifth-grade Chuck wasn't quite ready to rock—his hair was too short and his farm was too quiet—but he still found a way to bang his nappy little head. Before the journey was over, he would slow-dance to Poison, sleep innocently beneath satanic pentagrams, lust for Lita Ford, and get ridiculously intellectual about Guns N' Roses.

Just saw a Motley Crue cover band called Mostley Crue... They were great... wigs and all. Got some tix to see a GNR cover called Appetite for Destruction. But think I'll give um away. After I've seen the real thing it's not the same.
