P.O.D. returns with swaggering new song, "Soundboy Killa"

P.O.D. is back with new music. The San Diego rockers have unleashed a new song called "Soundboy Killa," and it's streaming along with a lyric video now on YouTube.

Stereogum reports that at Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival, Foo Fighters played the Marine Stage while '80s phenomenon Rick Astley performed on the Mountain Stage.
