Two massive 90s icons passed away yesterday, Prodigy frontman Keith Flint and Hollywood actor Luke Perry.
Flint, who became the poster boy for the 90s rave scene, was found dead at his house in Essex, he was 49 years old. Perry, who broke hearts in the American teen drama Beverly Hills 90210, suffered a massive stroke last week and never recovered. He died yesterday aged 52 at a hospital in Los Angeles.
Loads of people took to social media to recount tales of both men, but one constant emerged and that was of their kindness. Even though it felt like a large portion of our youth had perished here at HMS Friday we took solace from two stories, (one from singer James Blunt and the other from actor Colin Hanks), which we thought perfectly summed up life’s most important lesson. If you be can one thing, in the limited time you have on this planet, be nice. People will remember your actions forever.
Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best.
It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
For some time there have been rumours flying around the internet that rock band Foo Fighters were on the verge of breaking up, mainly due to further inaccurate speculation that the band considered lead man Dave Grohl to be ‘too Hollywood’.
So when the band issued a statement that an official announcement would be made online everyone automatically assumed the band was finished.
They couldn’t have been more wrong. The announcement itself was nothing short of hilarious.
Here’s the official video for the new Nicki Minaj single Anaconda, which is a song about her arse. Not about poverty, inequality, racism, war or love, just solely a song about her arse and how amazing her large arse is. Her lyrics sound like a typical substance induced Facebook rant by someone whose school years were spent sniffing glue:
Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, where my fat ass big bitches in the club?
Fuck the skinny bitches, fuck the skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club
Fuck you if you skinny bitches WHAT?
I have no idea who Ariana Grande is, but apparently she’s some pop pixie and her full time job is to warble and dress all sexy like. If you don’t know who she is you’ll certainly remember her name after watching her latest music video for her single Break Free.
Like a weary Barbarella parody this video manages to contain something special, something no other video to date has included, something which could be referred to as a ‘game changer’, because this music video has…ROOOOOOOOCKET BEEEEWWWWWBBBBSSSS!
This is the weirdest musical collaboration yet. Singer song writer CeeLo Green has teamed up with the cast of The Muppets for a truly terrible song which adapts the official theme tune of The Muppets stuffs it into blender and mixes it with Green’s vocals for some sort of hybrid Christmas song. Let’s not ignore the hilarious irony here as you have an artist who used to beat up homeless people and torture animals is now singing a festive song with all his cute, cuddly, helpless furry friends.
This six minute long beast heralds the return of the comedy musical duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass and their forthcoming album Rize Of The Fenix, since their disappointing box office flop that was Tenacious D: The Pick Of Destiny. In fact since that turkey the pair have done very little together, until now.
Less a music video and more of a promotional short film it stars Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer and Dave Grohl, who has confirmed he plays the drums for most of the tracks on the new album which will be released in May which will be supported by a 16 day tour across the States by the duo.
