Rage Against the Machine Bassist Tim Commerford Takes on Steroids Issue with New


Credit: Dana KleinOver the past couple months, you may have noticed a few new music videos from a new band called Future User. One of the videos, "Clockwork," features a masked man kidnapping and waterboarding none other than tennis legend John McEnroe. Now, that masked man has revealed himself as Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave bassist Tim Commerford.In the new Future User video, "Mountain Lion," the masked man takes off his disguise to reveal Commerford's face and his distinctive tattoos. The song comments on the use of performance-enhancing drugs, and even features a cameo from seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who was famously banned from cycling and stripped of his Tour de France titles after admitting to doping."The amount of attention given to PEDs is incredible," Commerford tells Rolling Stone. "Especially when you consider the amount of drugs -- recreational, illegal and pharmaceutical -- that America supports and profits from."The release of the "Mountain Lion" video comes on the heels of Armstrong's admission to the BBC that, if given the opportunity, he "would probably [cheat] again."Previous Future User videos have been similarly concerned with political and health issues, including surveillance and genetically-altered food.Future User's debut album, #SteroidsorHeroin, will be released February 24.Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker Say Tom DeLonge Is "Disingenuous"


Estevan Oriol/DGCBlink-182's Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have addressed Tom DeLonge's statement that he didn't quit the band, despite reports to the contrary. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Hoppus and Barker retain that DeLonge is no longer a part of Blink-182, describing the guitarist as "disrespectful," "ungrateful," and "disingenuous.""We booked January 5th to go into the studio. On December 30th, we get an e-mail from Tom's manager saying that he has no interest in recording and that he wants to do his other, non-musical stuff and that he's out indefinitely," Hoppus recalls. "There's a flurry of e-mails going back and forth for clarification about the recording and the show and his manager sends [an e-mail] back saying, 'Tom. Is. Out.' Direct quote. This is the exact same e-mail we got back in 2004 when Tom went on indefinite hiatus before.""I think he's just bummed because Mark and I were finally honest. We always covered up for him before," adds Barker. "It's hard to cover for someone who's disrespectful and ungrateful."Monday afternoon, DeLonge insisted on his Facebook page that he didn't quit the band. He wrote, "I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in... Apparently those releases were 'sanctioned' from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ....."  Later, a publicist for Blink-182 reportedly put out a statement in which Hoppus and Barker claimed DeLonge "didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." A rep for DeLonge then issued a statement quoting the guitarist as saying, "The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year. I love Blink-182 and I’m not leaving.""It's just funny to me. I think he's just in shock that he's finally been exposed," Barker says of the back-and-forth. "The truth is out."In December, DeLonge released a new album, The Dream Walker, with his side project Angels & Airwaves. In addition to the album, DeLonge is planning to release a novel, comic books and a feature film as a part of The Dream Walker project, which could be the "non-musical endeavors" Hoppus and Barker are referring to.As for Blink-182, the band is focused on playing the Musink Festival in Los Angeles on March 22. Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba will fill in for DeLonge."Finally, people know what the deal is with our band. Beyond that, we'll see what happens," Hoppus tells Rolling Stone. "Travis and I are intent on protecting the legacy of Blink-182 and continue to do what we've been doing for the past two decades: continue playing the songs."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Dave Grohl Does Not Appear in First Cut of "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck"


Image Courtesy of The End of Music, LLC/HBOThe first fully authorized Kurt Cobain documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, made its premiere this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, but one notable person was absent from the film -- Dave Grohl.Director Brett Morgen explained that while he did interview the former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman for the film, he did not have time to include the footage in the documentary prior to its Sundance premiere."We had a locked print and trying to re-edit a film with a new interview in 10 days is kind of difficult," Morgen tells Billboard.  "This is the picture I wanted -- I didn't want there to be a lot of people in the film."Morgen does say that he hopes to include the Grohl interview in another version of the film.  Perhaps we will see it when Montage of Heck airs on HBO later this year.Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck premiered at Sundance on Saturday, January 24.  At the opening, Cobain's daughter -- and the film's executive producer -- Frances Bean Cobain shared a hug with her mother, Courtney Love, marking the pair's first public appearance together in several years.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Perry Farrell Dishes with Mario Batali in New Web Series


Image Courtesy of Kyle Dean ReinfordAs the frontman of Jane's Addiction and the creator of Lollapalooza, Perry Farrell knows a thing or two about the creative process. So it makes sense that Farrell would appear on Feedback Kitchen, a new web series from celebrity chef -- and host of ABC's The Chew -- Mario Batali that covers that very topic. The series, which debuts on Monday, January 26, on DailyMotion, finds Batali and a musician discussing the creative process before Batali cooks up a special meal inspired by his guest."Perry sees the world through such a unique and fascinating lens that is full of wonder and curiosity," Batali tells Rolling Stone. "He is the perfect conversationalist and very appreciative of good food and wine."In anticipation of the premiere, DailyMotion released a clip of Farrell's night of food and conversation on Feedback Kitchen."The creative process always starts when I'm enjoying myself," Farrell tells Batali in the video. "Like, I'm always partying when I start writing songs for the most part, poetry, everything flows as the wine flows."Other episodes of Feedback Kitchen will include Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Patti Smith and U2 guitarist The Edge. All episodes will be released on January 26.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Fall Out Boy Debates: "American Beauty" or "American Psycho"?


Image Courtesy of Crush ManagementFall Out Boy's new album, American Beauty/American Psycho, is chock full of film references. There's the track "Uma Thurman," which pays tribute to the Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction actress, "The Kids Aren't Alright," which is a nod to the famous The Who rockumentary, The Kids Are Alright, and "Jet Pack Blues," which takes its inspiration from the film Pacific Rim.Of course, there's also the album's title, which is a reference to the films American Beauty, starring Kevin Spacey, and American Psycho, starring Christian Bale. So in the eyes of Fall Out Boy, which is the better film: American Beauty or American Psycho?"I don't think there's a better film, I think that it's like apples and oranges -- they're both really, really good," FOB guitarist Joe Trohman tells ABC News Radio. "[American Beauty] was written to be a film and [American Psycho] was an adaptation -- it was a great adaptation. I love both of those movies genuinely, and they have great imagery and great themes, and they're dark and weird and sexy."Pete Wentz was similarly torn, but he did give one film the edge over the other."The true snob in me wants to say American Psycho, I think Christian Bale is awesome in it," he says. "But the one that I've watched more is American Beauty.""I think the use of the color red is just kind of insane, and Kevin Spacy's character...that's when I thought of that guy as an actor," Wentz continues. "When I saw [American Beauty], I was like, 'Wow, he really nailed this bizarre, obsessive character.'" Either way, both films are represented on American Beauty/American Psycho, which is out now. You can catch Fall Out Boy on tour in support of the new album on the Boyz of Zummer tour with hip-hop artist Wiz Khalifa. The tour begins July 10 in Camden, New Jersey and wraps up August 10 in Los Angeles.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

"Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."In addition to the documentary, a Montage of Heck book will also be released, including extended transcripts from the interviews Morgen conducted for the film.Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will air on HBO later this year.Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
