    Drew Galloway is leaving TNA.
    Come home.

    Seriously?  That's fucking junk.  There's like no rhyme or reason to any of the changes they made.  The chorus is so fucking bad and the hook is not the "problem" with the original.
    Call me when Our Last Night does one.

    Wow....

    What that tells me is that Linkin Park doesn't care about their fans.  

    If they just want to make whatever music they feel like it, why not just be a touring jam band.

    Sounds like one of them is an awful person and the others are trying to compensate for it, unless I'm misreading something.

    The sense of entitlement is disgusting.  Do you think Linkin Park should just be forced to make the music over and over for 20 years because it's what their fans want and anything less is a betrayal of their trust?
    The band does what the band wants because they're fortunate enough to have worked hard and made their dreams come true, and the entitlement of some asshole fans to bitch about how the band betrayed or turned their back on them is sickening.  If you don't like it, then don't support it, but don't make LP the villains for making music they're passionate about instead of just making the same bland shit for the rest of their lives.
    If anything that video up there proves their adoration for their fans.  They don't have to answer to anyone but they gave all you nerds a bit of fan service and you turned it into some sort of negative bullshit.

    Maybe Kiiara's a friend of theirs and they just wanted her on the track.  I personally think her vocals mesh really well with Chester's and is a rather appealing sound.

    I'm gonna love this album.

    Yeah because this band has never radically changed their sound before 
    Linkin Park doesn't need to sell out, they already have more money and fame than most of their contemporaries.  They've proven time and again that they like doing new stuff and this is just a continuation of that philosophy.
    And also it's pretty good, thankfully.

    "Division Symbols" - Hands Like Houses - 'Dissonants'
    I've talked a lot over the last year about promising hardcore and metalcore bands turning in their creativity cards for the sake of radio play, and how the troubling trend has tanked a lot of recently promising albums.  While some of their contemporaries give up what made them so great to get into the spotlight, the Australia-based Hands Like Houses have pushed themselves into the active rock scene without compromising their intriguing sound.... too much, anyway.  There's no denying that 'Dissonants' is a more straight-forward rock album than Hands Like Houses have previously produced, but flourishes of their original sound are still present in songs like "Division Symbols."  The new album is famously more hooky than previous efforts and "Division Symbols" is among the main culprits, but it's a truly great hook brought together by Trenton Woodley's amazing vocals and a string of lyrics that flow smoothly off the tongue.  One of the Hands Like Houses' greatest strengths is their ability to craft great lyrical hooks without repetition and that's never more clear than on this track, which manages to be absurdly catchy despite a chorus that gets from point A to point B with a very diverse road.  The furious bridge is just that, a perfect bridge from new to old Hands Like Houses, staying loyal to the roots of their sound without selling out TOO hard.  This band deserves to be huge.

    And perhaps most importantly, Kiiara is going to feature on it.  I hope this indicates the kind of quality we can expect.

    The five moves of doom thing was always a stupid criticism and anyone worth their salt always knew that Cena was a good wrestler since like 2007. A bunch of nerds on the Internet saying it doesn't make it true.
    Corbin's moveset doesn't matter, his offense looks legitimate, he's come to understand ring psychology very well in a short period of time and he plays his brawler character flawlessly.
    There was a moment on Smackdown last week when AJ went up for the forearm and Baron just blasted him in the face, then mocked him and even sold the punch with a little shake of his hand. These are all small details but countering a high flying move with a simple display of power fit Corbin to a tee in a number of ways, and even selling that punch the way he did is better than a lot of folks bother to do.
    I feel like it's far too easy to just sweep Corbin under the rug as a standard big guy but he's not even just your average big guy. He doesn't wrestle big, he wrestles like a bully, which is what he's supposed to do. If he did a bunch of chain and mat wrestling he'd be betraying his character. He's like the anti wrestler.

    Dude stop shitting on Corbin that guy has been awesome for the last month solid.  He was a beast in that Chamber tonight.  And you're such a fucking mark complaining about Miz being scared of him, it was perfect booking for both of their characters.
    Bray as champ is fine, he certainly deserves it for all the shit they put him through.  Still waiting for that him to have a truly great match (closest he's come has been with D-Bry and the six mans with the Shield), but at the very least his character is finally being booked consistently again and the belt gives him the needed credibility to say "Hey, this Bray push is for real."  He definitely needs to come out on top on Mania, but I hope they find something good for Harper to do because he's the real star of the trio.
    Naomi being women's champ going into Wrestlemania is a fucking farce.
