A new video has been released for Chris Cornell's song "The Promise," the final track he released before his death this past May. The visual, dubbed the "theatrical version," mixes footage of the late Soundgarden frontman recording the song with scenes from the film The Promise, for which Cornell originally wrote the track.
"The Promise" reflects the themes of its namesake movie, which takes place during the Armenian genocide. Proceeds from the song were donated to the International Rescue Committee humanitarian charity.
Cornell was posthumously honored with the inaugural Promise Award during a ceremony held this past Tuesday in Los…
Green Day has premiered the video for their new single, "Back in the USA," now streaming on YouTube.
The video finds the punk trio living in an idyllic '50s neighborhood, only to find a pair of sunglasses that reveals the evil, consumerist message behind their TV and newspapers. Basically, it's a mix of the classic 1950s TV sitcom Leave It to Beaver and the 1988 sci-fi movie They Live.
"Back in the USA" is included on Green Day's new greatest hits collection, God's Favorite Band, which is out now. Along with the new track, the compilation includes 20 of Green…

Audioslave's self-titled debut album will celebrate its 15th anniversary this Sunday, November 19. The supergroup combined the vocal powers of Soundgarden's Chris Cornell with Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford of Rage Against the Machine.
Thanks to Cornell's presence, Audioslave is the only one of the three bands featuring Morello, Wilk and Commerford -- the other two being Rage and current project Prophets of Rage -- to feature a "traditional" singer. If you ask Morello, that's no accident.
"Chris was a great artist in many ways, but he was a unique and extraordinary crafter of melody," Morello tells ABC…
This week, Stone Temple Pilots finally announced their new singer: former The X Factor contestant Jeff Gutt. Speaking with The Oakland Press, Gutt says "it's a very strange feeling" being the frontman of a band he's long admired.
"I'm blessed and very honored. It's like joining the Led Zeppelin of my generation," he says. "I feel like I'm living in a movie."
Gutt adds that he's long "studied" the style of STP's original frontman, the late Scott Weiland.
"I was studying Scott when I was coming into singing myself, and I learned so much from [listening to] him," Gutt says.…
Coldplay's giant world tour in support of their album A Head Full of Dreams finally came to a close Wednesday night in Buenos Aires, Argentina. By the end of the nearly two-year run, the tour had grossed a total of $523,033,675, which makes it the third-highest grossing world tour of all time.

A specific corner of the internet is very convinced that Trent Reznor appeared on the latest episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The scene in question shows a street performer covered in silver metallic paint doing the "living statue" routine, whom a Reddit thread believes is played by the Nine Inch Nails frontman himself.
The actor certainly does bear a resemblance to Reznor, but the theory's supposed smoking gun is that the street performer is wearing shutter sunglasses -- the same style shades Reznor dons on the cover of his fake album Strobe Light, which he announced as an April Fool's…
Rolling Stone has published a ranking of the 50 greatest pop-punk albums of all time, and the magazine picked Green Day's 1994 breakthrough Dookie as its #1 choice.
"Green Day's third LP is a pop-punk gut-punch, perfectly marrying tight melody with a get-bent mentality," Rolling Stone writes. "After the grunge-dominated early Nineties, that irreverence was a breath of fresh air."
While Green Day is surely flattered by the designation, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has long resisted the "pop-punk" label. Back in 2015, Armstrong tweeted, "My mission for 2016? To destroy the phrase 'pop-punk' forever."
Following Dookie on Rolling Stone's list at…
