After posting the last article about NOT using “Rock ‘N Roll” after every goddamn stupid thing that happens to you, I started getting many questions and concerns. “Shawn, when is it acceptable to yell it out Rock ‘N Roll?

Below I have listed some common situations where you should totally shout the golden words from your giant throat holes. Remember, this is just a general guideline.

The term “Rock ‘N Roll” is probably the most over used phrase out there today. If not, it comes in a close second behind “Fuck You” or “I Can’t Go Back To Prison!”. I’m probably one of the worst offenders. I use it daily, more than once, when I probably shouldn’t. Lately it has become a verbal crutch when I get super shitfaced. I get super drunk and can’t understand a goddamn thing anyone is saying to me, so I’ll just use it in a response.
Bartender – Can I get you something?
Me – Rock ‘N Roll!
Bartender – Umm.. What’s in that?
Me – (*Pause) Rock ‘N Roll!
Bartender – I’m sorry I don’t know what that is. Can I get you something else?
Me – (*throws metal fists in air) Rock ‘N Roll!! Woooo!
Bartender – Get the fuck out. Read more [+]

“Blood, Death, And Murder Most Foul… It Sure Sounds Like A Heavy Metal Song To Me!” -Barry Lyons, Rent-A-Label
Twisted Sister frontman, Dee Snider, is most notably known for donning multi-colored shoulder pads with matching make-up and changing the Heavy Metal scene completely in the 80’s with songs like “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”. Oh ya, he also might of single handedly saved Rock music by taking on the PMRC back in ’85 to make sure that not just Rock music, but all music couldn’t be censored.
Lately Dee has been a busy guy. You might remember his reality show with his family, “Growing Up Twisted”. And lately it was announced that he will join the Black Veil Brides to perform “I Wanna Rock” at the 2012 Revolver Golden God Awards! Now Dee has ventured his talents into a whole new realm of entertainment. Broadway! When I first head Dee was going to be putting together a Broadway inspired record, I was a bit skeptical. I mean, how Metal can Broadway be? Within the first few seconds of his rendition of “Sweeny Todd”, I was a believer. This track straight up gets after it! Read more [+]

Shawn From Rockstar Radio With Volbeat 2011
I don’t really remember how I found them… I think I was reading some worldwide rock music article back in 2008 or 2009 and it mentioned this rock band out of Denmark. It was the name that caught my attention. “VOLBEAT“. Like the volume of the beat, or maybe some badass Danish word for “High Volume”? Either way I wanted to find out more, so of course I hit up youtube. From there I was hooked. I couldn’t get enough, dude. Read more [+]

Cover tunes have always been a part of Rock Music. Taking somebody’s original work, and putting your own sound and style on it can totally re-invent a track. Sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. I really thought that the cover song fad had hit it’s pinnacle a few years ago. So many bands started doing them because it was almost a guarantee that it would get airplay. That was the formula: Do a cover THEN release the original single. Hey, it worked. Think about it.
