Nearly 52,000 likes, 3,200 shares and over 2,600 comments—that’s all the social activity from one word posted to Queen’s of the Stone Age’s Facebook page. That one word? Recording. The only other detail posted was a picture showing the neck of a guitar with a pick in the strings bearing the logo of Queens of the Stone Age.
Angry Green Day
Speaking of Facebook--Just a month before iUno! hits shelves, Green Day has gone all cartoonish with the release of some new levels for “Angry Birds Friends” on Facebook. The social game will feature some pig-faces with likenesses of members of Green Day. The episode, which has ten levels, will also highlight the band’s new tune “Oh Love” and also the tune “Troublemaker.” Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong said that they’re all big fans of the game that mixes physics with slingshots and a host of different birds as projectiles launching at structures in hopes to knock them down. Armstrong says the game is so addicting. And it is! Now get out there and use the app, but please, don’t send me any app requests because I will block it and possibly de-friend you!
