Alice In Chains will perform at halftime this Sunday during the Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers game in Seattle.
It’s fitting because Jerry Cantrell has been a fan of the Seahawks since he was a kid and Alice In Chains are one of several notable bands to come out Seattle during the 90s alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam.
System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian and Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello will be featured on the Randy Rhoads tribute album “Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute.” The album will be out March 3rd.
The album features Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot songs that Rhoads co-write including “Crazy Train”, “Mr. Crowley” and “Back To The Coast.” The album has 11 songs.
Another tribute album to Rhoads, “Randy Rhoads Remembered, Vol 1” will be out January 23rd.

Marilyn Manson has claimed that he is responsible for inventing the term “grunge”.
The rocker says that he coined phrase when he was working as a music journalist and reviewing Nirvana’s debut album ‘Bleach’.
He said: “I hated rock’n’roll when I started. It was on the cusp of grunge and a lot of bands that I used to call ‘commonist rock’ because everyone wanted to be like the common man with the flannel shirts and Pearl Jam and their fight against Ticketmaster and all this horse s–t. Nirvana was different. That was one of the bands I covered first as a journalist and I’m just going to go ahead and say I coined the term ‘grunge’ in a review of ‘Bleach’. You’re welcome.”
This video shows Rage Against The Machine’s whole set when they played at Pitzer College in California in February 1992, several months before the release of their debut album.
Marilyn Manson shared a new song “Cupid Carries a Gun” which will be on his upcoming album “The Pale Emperor.”
Part of the song was used in the opening credits for the show “Salem” last year.
Manson said it was the last song he finished for the album and is about the Salem Witch Trials.
The song can be heard on his Facebook page.
“The Pale Emperor” comes out January 20th.

Foo Fighters played on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” a couple weeks ago and sat down before the show to discuss their songwriting process for their new album Sonic Highways. He then goes on to explain the meaning behind “I Am A River” specifically, which they went on to play later in the show. Check out that performance here.
