As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day. For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred. You’re welcome.
1. The 10-year old Joe Strummer Memorial in New York’s East Village was removed due to renovations. Thanks a lot, New York. You jerks.
2. Maybe you should stop playing Super Mario Brothers and listen to these 8-bit versions of songs by NOFX and Bad Religion.
3. Green Day played their infamous album, Dookie, from beginning to end at London’s O2 Arena. No word on whether or not Billie Joe threw a tantrum right after.
4. The Flatliners covered Tony Sly’s “Fireball” after a show in Geneva. Fat Wreck’s Tony Sly tribute is due out September 17.
5. Leftover Crack’s documentary, Passion of the Crust, has a trailer out. Fun fact: there is also a film that has nothing to do with them called The Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust.
6. Unwritten Law have reunited with their original drummer. Because everyone was clamoring for an Unwritten Law reunion tour.
7. Here’s a new band from Michigan called This Is The Year. For fans of Saves The Day and The Get Up Kids.
8. Wild Roses, featuring Marc Orrell, formerly of the Dropkick Murphys, have some new music out.
9. Professional Douche, Jonny Craig, forgot the lyrics to the national anthem. But the real news is WHO INVITED HIM?
10. Former Thrice frontman, Dustin Kensrue released the track list for his solo album, The Water and the Blood. And it is suuuuper Christian.
