Thank God: possible end to Sum 41??; Hot Chicks With D-Bags

Guitarist Departs Awful Band

From Rolling Stone...

Sum 41 Guitarist Quits the Band

SUM 41 guitarist DAVE BAKSH has left the band to concentrate on his own metal band, BROWN BRIGADE. According to a statement on the band's Web site, the split was friendly and came as no shock to the other members. "The fact is Dave lost interest a long time ago," wrote frontman DERYCK WHIBLEY. Whibley maintains that Baksh has not participated creatively for some time and that his departure will have little effect on the group, who are currently in the midst of recording the follow-up to their 2004 gold album, Chuck.

I can't blame this guy for "losing interest a long time ago." Sum 41 SUCKS. This is potentially great news for all lovers of good music. Hopefully this catastrophic loss will lead to the necessary breakup of a shitty band.

By the way, I can't wait to hear Dave's new band Brown Brigade! Wait, I'm kidding - I won't pay ANY attention whatsoever, Brown Brigade can go fuck themselves.

I will soon be adding Sum 41 to my list of Bands I Hate With an Unnatural Disdain.

Hot Chicks With Douchebags

Keeping the focus squarely upon d-bags, c recently brought to my attention a stellar blog featuring hot chicks with douchebags. It is quite creatively titled Hot Chicks With Douchebags.

A preview from it is on the right (hottie Yasmine Bleeth featured).

The author has great taste when it comes to identifying his subject matter... it's hilarious, and definitely worth a look.

Tool and Pearl Jam top the charts

Tool have the #1 selling record (10,000 Days) in the United States, and Pearl Jam's self-titled record follows with the #2 spot on the Billboard Charts.

Tool's first week sales of 564,000 copies is astonishing given the band's extreme lack of exposure on radio, television, and print media.

Long live rock.
