If you’re in the market for some new sh*t kicking boots, you may want to check out Linkin Park’s latest submission to the world of footwear. The limited edition Sebago boots will run you $250 … and they only come in one color … black. But they look pretty sweet … The calf-high lace up boots are very similar to what you might find on a soldier at boot camp. It’s a mix of shiny black leather with some of what looks to be breathable patch of heavy duty fabric. Proceeds of the sales go to Linkin Park’s charity Music for Relief which is devoted right now to helping victims of Hurricane Sandy. Meanwhile the band says their first four albums have been re-mastered for iTunes with some exclusive tracks found on each.
Skillet’s 2009 album Awake just hit platinum status … which means they’ve sold over 1,000,000 copies. That’s a big deal. They’re the third rock band to receive the honor in 2012. As for the future, the band promises some powerful anthems for their next record.

Love hates Grohl's money

Meanwhile, Love says that she will release some solo material with a song titled “This Is War” expected out February 7th. We’ll see if that happens.
