Wait, I don't see any thread in the music discussion titled Punk (I did look). Surely we like the odd bit of punk - well I do.
Stiff Little Fingers. Great band and some really good early material.
The Damned. More melodic and possibly the first UK punk band.
Chron Gen. Subway Sadist...
I used to think Hugh Grant was a enjoyable person to see as he plays a posh buffoon on film time and time again.
Now I see him as a complete prat that wants to stifle media in the UK.
Fact of the matter is that we...
The Final Frontier
2 Minutes to Midnight
Dance of Death
The Wicker Man
Wild Wind Blows
The Evil That Men Do
Fear of the Dark
Number of the Beast
Hallowed be thy Name
I don't think it came out...

OK, so its not strictly metal in the true sense of the meaning, but I would deem this song an f'ing masterpiece. And...
As you most likely will be aware, the UK votes in the General Election next week and it has been touted as the most hotly contested elections for a long while. The main reason for this is the surge in popularity of the Lib Dems as people have taken to Nick Clegg since the first live TV Prime...
It's quite the coveted thing, for those that care, and so many pop and novelty acts do their utmost to get it.
But this year in the UK, it's a whole new ball game. The X Factor and Simon Cowell has yet again lined up the winner of the show to sing a crass ballad and marketed it to the hilt to...
Or so said Paul Gambaccini on UK TV this morning. His reason for such a bold statement - "look what is in the charts at the moment, it's all electronic stuff." (or something like that). For that matter, he said Jazz was dead as well.
Well, I have to disagree with him. Yes, he may have been a...
Today, I read some rather distressing news that John Hartson has testicular cancer (read the article if you don't know who he is). Now, the thing is he was only diagnosed with this on Sunday just gone and it has spread to his brain and he has found out today it's in his lungs as well.
You'd think that of all people the UK government would know how the Union Flag should be flown (albeit a small plastic one), but in signing a trade agreement with China in Downing Street, they had it placed upside down (Source).
A little embarrassing, don't you think. :D
OK, it might seem a...
Here I thought we could share some brain teasers and sort of adapt them to Maiden. So, to kick off I will start with one that was originally presented using the members of a rather famous Irish rock band - but I have altered it for maidenfans.
Maiden have a gig they need to perform that...
So I have finally done it, something I have toyed with for a while - I have put Linux on my laptop.
I started with Mandriva (formally Mandrake) 2008 Spring and then went on to Mandriva 2009 (not before a very brief flirtation with Fedora 2009). And I have to say, I sort of like it. I have not...
So, there I was searching for a Flotsam & Jetsam video on youtube and found their cover of Saturday nights all right. And the related videos found a whole host of other bands that have covered this track, so who does the best one?
Here are the contenders:
Flotsam & Jetsam
Yeap. They did it again in Eurovision. Finland once again decided to enter a Hard Rock/Metal act as their entry this year - but it failed almost as bad as the UK's entry. This time, they went for a band that was more metallic.
Teräsbetoni - a classic metal band in the mould of Manowar with a...
