Here's the lyric video from 'Repo Man,' which will be on Rudd's new album:

Let's get freaky.
Halloween is only 108 days away! Ok, well maybe that is still pretty far away, but it happens to be my favorite day of the year. A day for candy, scantily-clad women, parties, festive beer, scantily-clad women and....scares.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing an unsuspecting victim lose their minds for a brief moment of heart-stopping decomposure. The best part is, everyone is a victim. Bodybuilders, Maxim models, children and old farts...they all succumb to a well-timed, heart-in-your-throat scare.
The problem with Halloween is that it only comes once a year. This is particularly unfortunate for those of us in the north, as winter can set in early and ruin our Octobuuurrrrr.
Because I'm getting the scaring itch already and I don't want to be the only one, I found a few videos you might enjoy with me. And the one at the end...well......that's just for you ;)
Warning: Some language NSFW or tender young ears
Here's a newer Vine compilation of some of my favorite scares..
Here's one of the best Killer Clown pranks I've ever seen
This was a live-action Prank Promo for the newer Chucky movie. The only good thing about the movie release was this ad. Enjoy
Another amazing ad campaign prank for the scary movie 'Devil's Due"
And if you haven't seen this classic elevator prank, then I'm happy to provide...
And finally, here's one I found just for you. Yes....YOU. Just click the link below, and prepare to lock your doors. *shivers*
A lot of these made their rounds through the internet pretty well, so apologize if you've seen them already. If you have any better ones, feel free to share them on our Facebook page! www.facebook.com/951ksky

Godsmack has released their latest webisode, which offers a behind the scene look at the making of 1000 HP.
You can watch it here
The five-minute video not only covers putting together the album, but also offers a little Godsmack philosophy lesson about the thinking behind the process. Frontman Sully Erna says everyone checked their egos at the door, because, "That's a promise we all had made to each other a long time ago -- we always write what is best for the record, not individuality, not egos."
1000 HP comes out on August 5th.

ESPN's SportsCenter is known for having some pretty great celebrity cameo commercials. This one might be the best, but something tells me that the first guitar lesson from Kirk Hammett is NOT free.

Latest Album Reviews
(like you care what I think)
Being a young snot-nosed kid in the Rock Media business, there's a lot of pressure on me to have a wide variety to my musical pallet. Luckily, I love everything new and old, and I happen to be very opinionated as well. That said, I pulled out a few new album releases from some of our classic rock favorites, and one from the younger band Linkin Park.
First up: Deep Purple's "Now What?"
Like most classic rock bands, the earlier stuff is still the best. With age comes new insights, new experiences, adult diapers, memory loss, and more political crap to sing about.
They stay true to their original sound, save the lackluster vocals. The single "All the time in the World" is memorable and well-written.
The single "Hell to Pay" is garbage.
Fitting with the latest music industry trends, the album seems to have a "hurry up and produce this shit so we can tour!" -feel.
Judas Priest's "Redeemer of Souls"
If you're looking for hard-hitting and crunchy instrumentals, then you'll be a fan of this latest release from the heavy metal pioneers. If you're looking for a well-produced, youthful and full-sounding Rob Halford, save your money.
Superb guitar work.
Look at the album cover...fuck yeah m/
I've heard better drums from a 12 yr old middle schooler.
Impressive vocals considering his Rob's age, but it's tough to like.
Linkin Park's "The Hunting Party"
In an interview before the album's release, Mike Shinoda claimed that this album was going to be a familiar sound from the earlier days. He was very excited to bring back the long-awaited hard shit that we all fell in love with. Remeber those first two albums that blasted them to the top of the charts? Where every single song was your fight song in your daydreams about you being in the MMA or saving your crush from some bullies? That fresh, new Rap/rock sound so perfectly executed and produced you thought to yourself, "Man, this band is gunna go far."
Yeah, it's not that. Its a very plain, lackluster rock album. I got more pumped listening to Nickelback's Darkhorse at 7 a.m., hungover as HELL from the night before.
It's definitiely heavier than the rest of the recent stuff they've put out.
It's a rock album...
It's a step in the right direction!
Very forgettable songs
Little-to-no rap/rock influence that we all came to love about them
