It’s been a year since Deftones bassist Chi Cheng passed away after being in a comatose state for five years. To remember the bassist and his work with the band, Deftones have released a never before released tracked titled “Smile.” Front man Chino Moreno posted that the song is from the band’s shelved album Eros. When Chi got in the car accident that left him in a coma back in 2008, the band was finishing up their work on Eros. The band decided not to released the disc. The track, streaming online, is one of the last tunes recorded with Chi on bass.
Oderus monument proposed
Speaking of honoring the fallen, GWAR wants to erect a monument to honor their late front man Oderus Urungus, also known as Dave Brockie. The band started a foundation in his name and they hope to generate enough funds to put a statue up in Richmond, Virginia, to honor Brockie. Brockie was found dead in his home last month.
Raunchy new Steel Panther video
Just when you thought the band couldn’t get anymore over the top, Steel Panther have gone and done it again with their song and video for “Gloryhole.” There’s not much we can say about the lyrics of the song, because we’d get fined by the FCC. The video, though, shows the band performing in a dingy, gross-ass bathroom with all kinds of holes cut in the stalls and characters ranging from clowns to a Jesus figure, to a Rabi, a monk, and even a hermaphrodite. But that’s about all we can tell you. It’s definitely a Not Safe For Work video. Watch with caution.
