Name Your Favorite Kiss Song


Rock N Roll is making a big splash on the Wrap-Up Magazine. This time Fans Favorite brings in the famous band Kiss into the category. KISS can easily be named one of rock's most influential bands.

More gold records than any American band. Kiss might be the Hottest Band In The Land™, but there's always more to learn from there fans. From their first days together, KISS supposedly created an image linked to Nazis, Satan, and blood. That image has become a marketing juggernaut and demonstrates why people are split when it comes to the KISS rock and roll legacy.

To some, KISS is known for their outrageous outfits, makeup, and antics - everything from Gene Simmons's tongue action to on-stage blood-spewing and fire-breathing - aspects which reach far beyond their music.

While the band hasn't had a hit since the late 1970s, they continue to sell merchandise and profit from their connections with the Prince of Darkness.

What is the truth when it comes to KISS and their hardcore rock and roll lifestyle? What do fans have to say about Kiss? Do you have a favorite song you have payed the most?

Name Your Favorite Metallica Song


The heavy metal rock band Metallica was one of the biggest selling acts in American history. Metallica defined the look and sound of 1980s heavy metal, just as Led Zeppelin had for hard rock.

East Coast metal merchant Jon Zazula pitched the band on an album deal with his indie label Megaforce Records and 1983 found them traveling to New York in a stolen U-Haul to record their first album.

The group has sold 57 million albums in the US alone and 35 million albums sold outside the US. It has sold just over 90 million albums.

Metallica has won seven Grammy Awards: 1990: Best Metal Performance - "One" 1991: Best Metal Performance - "Stone Cold Crazy" 1992: Best Metal Performance With Vocal - Metallica 1999: Best Metal Performance - "Better than You" 2000: Best Hard Rock Performance - "Whiskey in the Jar" 2001: Best Rock Instrumental Performance - "The Call of Ktulu" with Michael Kamen and the San Francisco Symphony 2004: Best Metal Performance - "St. Anger".

As of January 2019, the current band members are: James Hetfield [Vocals & Guitar], Lars Ulrich [Drums], Kirk Hammett [Guitar & Backup Vocals], and Robert Trujillo [Bass & Backup Vocals]. Although Dave Mustaine left the band prior to the recording of Kill 'Em All, he is credited with co-writing songs on the band's first two albums.

Whats Your Favorite Song From AC/DC?

 


AC/DC are an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Although their music has been variously described as hard rock, blues rock, and heavy metal, the band themselves call it simply "rock and roll".


Malcolm and Angus Young developed the idea for the band's name after their sister, Margaret Young, saw the initials "AC/DC" on a sewing machine. "AC/DC" is an abbreviation meaning "alternating current/direct current" electricity.


AC/DC's mammoth power chord roar became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the '70s, and is now one of the defining sounds of rock and metal.

Name A Rock Band That Inspired You The Most


I know it may be hard to limit your answer to one rock & roll musician, but the Wrap-Up Magazine want to know which rock band have inspired you the most throughout the years?

Certain trends emerge as you explore how rock's 100 biggest bands got their names. From AC/DC to ZZ Top, many rock bands have made it to the top of the charts while some didn't. Rock music also drew strongly from a number of other genres such as electric blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical styles.

Rock music's long, storied past has made it a versatile style of music beloved by many. It has elicited calls of action for peace, been blamed for violence, and, most of all, entertained the people of the world since its inception.

Has Rock-N-Roll Always Been Apart Of Hip-Hop Culture?


Yes Hip Hop has always been apart of the Rock culture! Rock and Rap song were some of the best ever made still today! For an institution that is dedicated to immortalizing rock and roll’s greatest heroes, there are many inductees in there who are not quite typically thought of as rock artists.

You’ve got Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC, Miles Davis, Madonna, and Tupac in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The confusion behind these inductees lies not with the quality of their work, but rather the categorization of it.

There are four other artists who have been nominated but have yet to be inducted—Afrika Bambaataa, LL Cool J, Eric B. and Rakim, N.W.A—and four more groups who have been considered for the ballot but who have not yet been nominated—Boogie Down Productions, De La Soul, the Sugarhill Gang, and the Treacherous Three.

What If You Had The Chance To Meet AC/DC?

 


AC/DC is known as one of the greatest rock bands ever, and it's hard to imagine a live sporting event without their music. Brian Johnson is crediting fans for sticking with AC/DC.


I don't think most of their male fans should take them seriously either. And I'm damn sure the band doesn't take itself seriously. AC/DC was formed in 1973 in Sydney, Australia by Malcolm Young. AC/DC have won only one Grammy Award in their career, for the Black Ice song “War Machine” in 2010.


AC/DC's fist ever headline show was at the Melbourne Festival Hall on 4 November, 1975. AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10, 2003.

Whats Your Favorite Van Halen Song?


Van Halen is an American rock band formed in Pasadena, California in 1972. Credited with "restoring hard rock to the forefront of the music scene."

When Van Halen released their self-titled debut album in 1978, fans hadn't heard a guitar hero with such singular style since Jimi Hendrix. Eddie Van Halen did things with his guitar that didn’t seem humanly possible – he could make it hum like a helicopter one minute and crush like a bulldozer the next.

With singer David Lee Roth at the mic, the group had a natural showman who wrapped 70 years’ worth of stage entertainment into one motor-mouthed fireball. Roth quit the band and was replaced by Sammy Hagar, a rock-music vet who gave the group some much needed melodic thrust and provided them with a series of hit records.

The Centaurettes - Spider On The Wall

 


St. Louis Trio The Centaurettes Go Pastel Punk on New EP ‘Cute to be Mean’ 

LOUIS, MO – When St. Louis indie punk band TheCentaurettesdecided to make their second EP, Cute to be Mean” – a project they consider to be more professionally produced than their DIY debut “Please Give Me Space” – they were surprised to hear how much their musicianship and songwriting had grown. Core members Derek Hibbard and Bionca Maldonado – guitar and bass, respectively – added drummer Daniel L. Jackson to their roster first. All three of them are vocalists for the band and represent a diversity seldom seen in rock music today. Two-thirds of them are Queer and People Of Color. That diversity helps create something truly original on “Cute to be Mean,” which was recorded almost entirely live. While the songs still ooze sass and irreverence, the artists also found some soft moments, causing them to rebrand themselves as “pastel punk.” 

In general, there’s a heaviness to the subject matter here. Lyrics confront topics like depression and addiction. Ultimately, Maldonado sees the dominant theme as growth, saying “Growth and adaptation are enormous to everyone right now.” In one standout song, “Spider on the Wall,” vocalist Derek Hibbard explores all aspects of addiction. Yet, the music stays phenomenally groovy, and the song ends with a recording of people laughing. 

Hibbard credits Jackson with helping widen the band’s sound, saying, “Danny started out as just a drummer. But in the recording of this he started doing backing vocals, he added keys, he added guitars. He actually has his own song on the record that he plays and sings, ‘Birds and Bees.’ “We’ve kind of got a punk rock Beatles thing going on where you never know who’s going to be singing.” 

It was Jackson who suggested re-recording “The Barge,” a song on the band’s first EP, wanting to do his own take on the song. Having done multiple recordings, Maldonado was keen to try one more time and give the song a “final resting place.” The band was shocked when they heard how much better the new version was. “Miles and miles above where it started in 2017,” says Hibbard. “Night and day.” Maldonado adds that it’s a treat for their longtime listeners, saying “It’s a way to share an old song that all of our fans knows and show them how good it is now.” Much as Green Day fans enjoy both an older and newer version of “Welcome to Paradise,” “The Barge” now lives in two iterations. A video is forthcoming.  

On “Cute to be Mean,” the St. Louis trio shows their own growth. Not just in their music and songwriting, but in their openness to explore new genres, revisit their past, and make the very best of a change in the band’s lineup.  But they’re keeping the sass.  

“Cute to be Mean” was recorded by The Centaurettes at Lighthouse Sounds in Alton, IL and produced by Alex St. Cin.  

The EP is currently available across all streaming platforms. To listen to their music, or to follow them on social media, please visit the following links:

Metallica Goes Acoustic for Charity Benefit


Metallica supported its All Within My Hands charity foundation with a 12-song acoustic set this past weekend in San Francisco.

The band's set included rearranged versions of its own songs, along with acoustic renditions of some tunes from classic rock heroes like Bob Seger, Deep Purple and Blue Oyster Cult. 

Band members James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich were joined by a quartet of backing musicians who provided additional percussion, keyboards, strings and vocal harmony.   

While Metallica has several downtempo tunes that prominently feature acoustic guitar, the set fully embraced the band's thrash roots. "Disposable Heroes" from 1986's Master of Puppets was the opener.  

The All Within My Hands foundation is aimed at improving workforce education, providing critical local services and especially fighting hunger.

Ulrich revealed during the band's WorldWired tour that for years Metallica has been donating time, money and food to charities in every city they play.   

Leading up to the band's second annual Day of Giving this spring, Ulrich wrote in a Rolling Stone op-ed that the band started the foundation and began publicizing its efforts in hopes of increasing volunteer-ism worldwide.
