Take Me Out is quite funny, isn’t it. It’s got him from Phoenix Nights being northern and funny with his catchphrases and whatnot. It’s got 30 pretty girls in a line who dance and whoop and choose whether they wish to procreate with a man whose entrance music could define his life.

At 8pm this Saturday, 10 March 2012, that man will be a bona fide heavy metaller. Renny Carroll from Essex metallers, Forever Never.

Linkin Park are the biggest selling band of this decade, nay, century. That’s a statement that really hurts, isn’t it. They’ve sold more records than Metallica, Iron Maiden or even The Beatles. Yes, feel free to weep because there doesn’t seem like much to celebrate. Right? WRONG!

There really have been some amazing bands, albums and songs that have have had an amazing effect over the past ten years and we’re going to focus on them with loads of celebratory articles about them. And this is where you can find all of them. Handy, eh?

So how’s the tour with Skeletonwitch and Toxic Holocaust going?
Sammy: “It’s killer cos we were all pretty much friends before we came on this tour. We’ve toured the US with Skeletonwitch before and we’ve known them for a very long time; and we’ve known Joel from Toxic Holocaust for a while now so it’s like basically a bunch of friends hangin out in Europe. Drinkin a bunch of beer and rockin out!”

There’s not really that much British Music to be proud of from the nineties: we were bombarded with Britpop, whilst the lucky badgers across the pond got to enjoy the Grunge explosion. This era of uninspired bedwetting and parka-hooded swagger, often referred to as ‘Cool Britannia’, held precious little cool though for music fans of the rock persuasion.

John Major’s Britain was embarrassing: I mean no-one gets inspired by the kid who wet himself at school, do they? In searching for a new identity, the county went indie-mad and started flying the Union Jack to a soundtrack of Oasis, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers and Travis. It was the era of ‘Britpop’ and his less aspirational brother ‘Britrock’.
