Heaven’s Basement, Joan Jett, The Pretty Reckless & All That Remains to Rock Our 20th Birthday Bash

The Rock Station 99X is approaching a major milestone. In April of 1994, to the howls of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell," The Rebel Rocker 99X was born. Now, 20 years (and several name changes) later, we're still kicking ass, taking names and playing the loudest and vilest records we can.

To commemorate two decades of decadence and debauchery, we're celebrating the only way we know how: by raising a little hell and throwing a big-ass party! We'll have a little something from all eras of 99X history, as Heaven's Basement, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The Pretty Reckless and All That Remains take the stage for our 20th Birthday Bash.

There have been tons of small updates on the progress of Tool's fifth full-length album in the past couple of years, but in a new report, a reliable source has written that Tool may be "100 percent done" with the record.
