Sham Pain – FFDP
Our esteemed panel of experts, The Union of Dunces is back to take a listen to the new single from Five Finger Death Punch. Lead singer Ivan Moody has been through a ton of crap the past few years, primarily around his addiction problems. It almost broke the band apart, but here they are with new music, as they tour the country. We’ll let our panel decide whether it was worth the wait…

Song of the Day: “Go” by Glen Phillips
I’ve always felt that one of the saddest things in life is unrequited love (ala “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits). But Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips has taken that a step sadder in his new music video “Go.”

Descendents – Who We Are
The proto punk-rock group, Descendents have released another wonderful piece of art with politically charged anthems called Who We Are. Upon listening, the first thing I noticed about the start was the lead guitar smashing up a sound that reminds of a Social Distortion song mashed up with some riffs reminiscent of beach rock you’ve heard from a band like Rebelution.

What Did I Do/God As My Witness – TBT SOTD
I remember when I was young and in love with music, I was the kid that was in my room in the cold winter months (and there were quite a few) sitting in front of my old school stereo with tape decks. Back then we didn’t have mp3 players or smartphones or even YouTube for that matter.
