Maria Brink from In This Moment appears as a guest vocalist on Papa Roach’s song “Gravity” which released on their newest album F.E.A.R. and recently joined Papa Roach on stage at a show in Moline, Il to perform a live debut of the song.

Three Days Grace’s song “The Good Life” had the lowest grade level of all the songs tested with 0.8.

The highest ranking number one song from the past 10 years was Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Dani California” with a level of 5.5.

David Lee Roth: No Van Hagar Material on Tour

David Lee Roth said Van Halen won’t perform any of the Sammy Hagar era material.

He said there is a credibility issue with the Hagar material. Roth said that’s why the Sammy era albums sold half as well as his.

Roth said, “this hamburger don’t need no helper, ain’t no rehearsing pants in my closet.”

When it comes to new music, Roth doesn’t want to wait 10 years to release another album. He admitted everyone in the band has different work ethics and he spent the last two years living in Japan.
