The Tragically Hip made a small dent in the American music scene in the Mid-90’s, but are completely immersed in the culture and utterly synonymous with the country of Canada. A year ago this week, lead singer Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The band went on one last tour through their homeland with their very last show, from their hometown of Kingston, Ontario, televised from coast to coast.
Song #3 – New Video from Corey Taylor and Stone Sour
Stone Sour is one of the hottest rock bands on the planet. They’ve been toiling on the hard rock scene for the past two decades, but lately have experienced a significant breakthrough with major festival appearances, an upcoming tour with Korn, and more importantly some damn good new rock ‘n roll.

A very special Throw Back Thursday…..
No doubt a million of our tribe has shared in the sadness that comes with losing an artist that may have been held close to the heart. Someone that was a mainstay on your favorite playlist, or popped up more than most on shuffle, or you just happened to love anything and everything they distributed to the masses. For some, those artists have found a way to speak a language meant for each individual, making each and every note personal. For many of us, that artist was Chris Cornell.
Saints Patience with our Song of the Day
They are a talented new duo from London offering up guitar rock with a true classic rock vibe. “Patience Awakens” is a gritty stomp through your mind paced by catchy guitar riffs and a filthy solo from Spencer. The vocals from Mudibo are the ideal complement and they weave masterfully through the song.

SOTD: Alison Moyet – “Reassuring Pinches”
Alison Moyet is the iconic voice we grew to love as part of the sweet 80’s synth-rock duo Yaz (or Yazoo if you hail from the UK). Along with Vince Clark, Moyet delivered a handful of early alt-rock hits during their brief two album career together early in the 80’s. This week, we were gifted with some new music from the legendary singer.
