Megadeth Visit Fan Who Was Stabbed At Recent Argentina Show

A Megadeth fan who attended the band’s recent show in Argentina landed in the hospital after being stabbed three times while being robbed.  Of course, once the band found out about the incident, they made a special trip to visit the fan while he was still in the hospital.

It was a very special delivery yesterday (August 7th) for Dee Snider’s son Jesse and his wife Patty, as their fourth child, daughter Parker Pryde Snider, was born enroute to UCLA Hospital while the couple was driving on Interstate 405.   Both Patty and Parker are doing well.  Congrats to everyone in the Snider family!

More Speculation Around Green Day’s New Music

Ever since news broke about Green Day dropping a new single, fans have been speculating when an album will follow.  While we only know that the single “Bang Bang” is coming out August 11th, some fans are guessing that the hashtag #RevRad in the Instagram video below stands for “Revolution Radio,” which could be the album title.

When you give someone an inch, they take a foot, amiright?  Either way, only three more days until Green Day’s new single!

Barneys New York Selling Punk Shirts For Over $200 (Yes, We’re Serious.)

R13, a brand stocked at Barneys New York, is reproducing  popular band shirts of the like of Blondie, Black Flag and Joy Division.  The problem we have with that is the price at which they’re selling them.  The Black Flag logo t-shirt is being sold for $265, while the Joy Division shirt is going for $225 and both Blondie shirts are marked at $195 each.

The lesson?  Always save your concert t-shirts!  Rebuying them might cost you an obscene amount of money.
