Iron Maiden's Wacken Performance To Be Last

This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

U.K. metal legends Iron Maiden announced that the final stop of the "Book of Souls" tour on August 4th at Germany's legendary Wacken Festival will be the band's final live performance. The band promises that the performance will be the most special live event ever conceived in its 41 year history. Dubbed "The True Best Of The Beast," Iron Maiden will perform both new and classic material spanning its entire history with guest appearances from former vocalists Paul Di'Anno and Blaze Bayley.

In a statement issued by long time band co-manager Rod Smallwood: "After over 40 years rocking the world so many times over, Iron Maiden will perform for the last time at Wacken on August 4th. The decision wasn't made overnight, but carefully planned out over the last year. If there was ever an Iron Maiden show you should see, this is the one. We have so many surprises in store for the fans."

Some of the surprises that Smallwood was able to reveal include:

- Every album in the band's history will be represented with at least one song in the set
- Special guest vocalists include Paul Di'Anno and Blaze Bayley, both of who will perform material from their respective eras
- The stage show will be unlike any other Iron Maiden performance, featuring props and stage sets from the band's classic tours for "Powerslave," "Somewhere in Time," "Seventh Son of A Seventh Son"
- Special Iron Maiden "stage tickets" will be made available as a special side sale, which opens up opportunities for additional fans to attend this performance as Wacken is currently sold out. Each fan with a special stage ticket will receive a 150 page commemorative program, which features never published live and memorabilia pictures spanning the history of the band. More...

AC/DC Taps A. Rose - Guns N’ Roses Taps Vince Neil

This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

There have been some rumors circulating recently that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has been tapped to finish out the postponed dates of AC/DC‘s North American tour. TMZ - as reported earlier this week - have photographed Axl Rose and members of AC/DC emerging from the same rehearsal studio in Atlanta, GA this past weekend.

Today both bands have made a surprising official joint statement, announcing Axl Rose as permanent new AC/DC frontman and revealing also retired Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil as Guns N’ Roses' new vocalist. The move comes as a result of AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson being forced to stop touring by his doctor or risk permanent hearing loss. More...

Coheed And Cambria Sings McConnell's Dissent

Remember about a year ago when Coheed And Cambria decided to turn the now-deceased Justice Scalia's dissenting opinions on gay marriage into a song?

The boys are at it again, this time singing Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell's obstructionist comments about not considering the replacement for Scalia's empty supreme court seat.

Somehow, it turns into a folksy tune that actually works (although it sounds like every other song). Have fun with the latest in political shenanigans below, courtesy of Funny Or Die. More...

Jolly Kills Steven Wilson

New York City progressive/alternative rock group Jolly just launched the first clip in a series of animated shorts called The Jollyshow. In this first episode, entitled "Jolly Kills Steven Wilson," things get messy when the lovable but naïve Jolly unknowingly meet prog idol, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, Storm Corrosion). Spoiler art: it doesn't end well.

Commented Jollydrummer, Louis Abramson: "The progressive rock community is truly a special one. There are so many nuances that only those on the inside could understand. We decided to pay homage and show our love to the prog world in the best way we know how - by making fun of it. The beauty about the prog community is that everyone could take a joke, or at least we hope! But really, we do believe that people will see our nonsense as an act of love. Any fan of Jolly knows that Steven Wilson is a huge influence on us.

"We are very excited about this cartoon beyond the cheap laughs. This cartoon is 100 percent created by the band, from start to finish. The same goes for our music, and all our other video content. Our aim is to show the world that the only thing it takes to make quality content is heart."
