By CEON FOOSHEYS Chicago rockers Riot Inside will release their second EP title 404 on Oct. 9, a six-song collection of energetic rhythm and bottom heavy swagger. I imagine a music reviewer would write that. I am not a music reviewer, but I have listened to 404 after much bickering with drum player John Castro, [...]
Jani Lane – R.I.P. The writers of RUFKM have always found Jani Lane to be an underrated singer/songwriter that simply wrote some great songs during and after Warrant’s heyday. Unfortunately for most he is known as the “Cherry Pie Guy” but wrote melodies and lyrics that were superior to most of his peers – “Heaven”, [...]
Audio interview with Shaman’s Harvest guitarist Josh Hamler. He breaks down the band’s history, their recent success with “Dragonfly”, and how they are prone to injury. They currently have one band member in a cast and another in a wheelchair. At least they don’t have a one armed drummer. No, we are not fucking kidding you.
Since last summer, one album is in constant rotation in our cars and iPods, reassuring the RUFKM writers will achieve our goal to go deaf by March. That album? Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: III. Not only do they have the longest band name in rock history, TylerDFC wrote a review and called this “the best rock album of 2009″ , they have two previous releases creatively titled I & II, and they opted to sign to a music label named after a ferret.
We ask I Love Rich 13 Stupid questions. We have no idea why.
We ask Rachel Bolan and Snake Sabo, original members of Skid Row, a bunch of stupid questions.
We ask Stevie Rachelle of Metal Sludge a bunch of stupid questions. Chaos ensues.
Here is a YouTube clip of an interview we did with Ryan Mccombs of Drowning Pool at Crue Fest in W. Palm Beach. You wouldn’t think that Ryan has a sense of humor since he’s usually singing angry songs about killing poodles * but he is quite witty …. and obscene. In other words, it was [...]
Here it is. The first RUFKM video production. This is one of two interviews we did at Crue Fest 2. This clip is with John Allen of Charm City Devils who is one cool, laid back, funny dude. The second is with Ryan Mccombs of Drowning Pool which ended with a huge conflict and Ryan [...]
Mark Wilson of JET recently sat down with RUFKM.NET to answer some of the stupidest questions in the history of rock journalism. And by “sitting down with us” we mean that he sent back his responses from his iPhone somewhere on tour. We also recently reviewed JET’s new album Shaka Rock which you can read [...]
Shiprocked is a cruise departing in November from Ft. Lauderdale that features Queensryche, Skid Row, Tesla, Ratt and others. Several months ago, as part of our Shiprocked promotion, we got in contact with Queensryche’s manager, Jeff at Rock Star PR. After several rounds of emails, their manager graciously sent a copy of American Soldier and agreed that [...]
Occasionally, the geniuses at RUFKM make mistakes. We’re only human ….. plus we do a ton of narcotics. The RUFKM headquarters are flooded with requests for our “13 Stupid Questions” from various PR firms, music labels, and artists desperate to be endorsed the world’s greatest humor website. Because of the sheer volume of followup emails, sometimes we screw up [...]
The economy has taken it’s toll on many industries, but nobody has been hit harder than the publicity department at Broken Teeth LLC. It is quite sad, but this company cannot even afford plastic cases or original copies of it’s artists music. Broken Teeth is one of several lesser known bands playing on Shiprocked, a rock and [...]
A few weeks ago, we were given the opportunity to interview Drowning Pool’s “lead singer of the week” Ryan Mccombs. Drowning Pool is playing at this summer’s Cruefest 2 with previous “13 Stupid Questions” participants Charm City Devils. However, all the band members look like convicted felons and do not look like they can [...]
Yo. While most (read: all) of our “13 Stupid Questions” interviews have been geared towards hard rock, our staff has a diverse taste in music — especially artists with a great sense of humor. So, [...]
Before you read this interview, you should know that RUFKM and Pop Evil have a rich history together. In the beginning of 2009, Boondoggle had recommended their new album Lipstick on the Mirror, so TylerDFC and I bought a copy and it was pretty damn good. Hell, Boondoggle even wrote an in depth review of [...]
Let it be known that John Allen, lead singer/songwriter of Charm City Devils, is one cool dude. Somehow, his interview actually made the writers of RUFKM enjoy Charm City Devils’ debut album, So Let’s Rock and Roll, even more. It’s one of those interviews that make you root for the band to succeed on their way to world domination. [...]
About a year ago while perusing a local “classic rock” station a sound both strangely familiar but entirely new began to emit from the speakers of my car. I immediately lunged towards the volume knob to crank the volume to 11, proceeded to sing like a fool while simultaneously banging my head like a crack-addict. [...]
Have you ever asked yourself: “What would Motley Crue sound like if they did not have Vince Neil stumbling around the stage incoherently mumbling the lyrics to their greatest hits and instead hired Josh Todd of Buckcherry as their lead singer?” No. How about dreaming of a band that redefines sleaze, brings back the Sunset Strip in all its glory and offers original and insightful [...]
We have had endless debates at the RUFKM headquarters of who would be best suited for candidates for our world famous “13 Stupid Questions.” However, since we began this series of ridiculous Q&A, one man was always at the top of the list. Al Jourgensen, best known as as the founder and frontman of the recently [...]
