Foster the People’s Success Started with a Free Download of Hit Song ‘Pumped Up Kicks’

Downloading, both legal and illegal, has taken a lot of the blame for the sales collapse suffered by the music industry over the last decade and change. But not every artist has a horror story to tell regarding mp3s and filesharing technology.

Just ask Mark Foster, frontman for fast-rising rockers Foster the People, whose inescapable hit single ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ started out as a free download on the band’s website.

New Van Halen Album Now Rumored for Early 2012

For fans of Van Halen‘s original lineup, the band’s last three decades or so have been punctuated with more than a few frustrations and disappointments, including their brief reunion with David Lee Roth in 1996, bassist Michael Anthony’s rudely handled dismissal, and an overall lack of new music since a pair of new tracks were appended to the double-disc ‘Best of Both Worlds’ compilation way back in 2004.

Roth has been back in the band since 2006, with rumors of a new album persistently surfacing over the last five years. The buzz has grown louder than ever this year, and for awhile, it looked like this might finally be the year Van Halen came back — but it looks like we’ll have to keep on waiting.

Slipknot Planning US Tour for 2012

Faithful maggots who have been pining away for new Slipknot since the release of ‘All Hope Is Gone’ way back in 2008 are going to have to keep waiting for awhile, because the band has no plans to record.

What Are Rock’s Most Shocking Album Covers?

Being proudly provocative has always been part of rock ‘n’ roll — from the music’s earliest days, when simply shaking one’s hips on television was enough to send middle-aged Americans into a righteous lather, the formula for some of the best rock has been one part rhythm, one part volume, and one part shock.

This has also been true for album covers, which some of rock’s most forward-thinking performers have used as a platform to shock, disturb, annoy, and generate thought-provoking conversation (although not necessarily in that order). It’s a long rock ‘n’ roll tradition — one celebrated with a new list over at Ultimate Classic Rock.
