Great Songs Still Matter: Pete Wentz Praises Post Malone and Billie Eilish

Pete Wentz dropped by ALT to chat the Hella Mega tour and our conversation turned to alternative music today versus twenty years ago. Pete made a great point citing the changes in not just alternative but music overall, calling it more ‘pervasive’ and pointing to the democracy of today’s...

SORRY LIL NAS X, IN BLOOM BEATS PANINI

When I’m not asking you to text me at 55701 from 6-10PM weeknights on ALT 92.3, I have a day job over at MTV hosting TRL. Every time I introduce Lil Nas X’s “Panini” music video, a song that interpolates the “In Bloom” chorus, a small part of me wishes it was Kurt. No Offense Mr. Nas. Mr. Nas X? Mr...

KANYE TAYLOR TURNS 10, BUT STILL NOT THE BEST VMAS MOMENT

Apparently it’s been 10 years since Kanye famously interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs and I’mma let you finish reading this blog but this is not the most heart-sinking, controversial moment in VMAs history.

HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH, CELEBRATE WITH THIS THROWBACK

With today being Friday the 13th and halloween a mere 48 days away, I awoke this morning with visions of knives, blood, gore, screaming, masks…scary movies.

I challenge you to pick just one. The Pringles of 90’s pop rock. I give you The Gin Blossoms and Better Than Ezra. Two acts so evenly skilled in both prowess and track record, that this matchup truly makes for a nail-biting toss-up.

MUSIC DISCOVERY: PHEM - "SWEATER"

SAY ANYTHING WAS AND STILL IS A GREAT BAND

There’s something about re-discovering a great band that just plain beats a great band you’ve always been aware of. Say Anything was that re-discovery for me this week. I loved these guys in the mid-2000s. MTV never showed them tons of love but they were Fuse darlings. I could go a lot of different...

GOOD RIDDANCE TO SUMMER!

Never been much of a Summer guy. It was always kind of boring to me growing up in Jersey. You’d get out of school in late June and have zilch to do until football practice started in early August. I remember a lot of waiting around, wandering my hometown, getting told constantly we couldn’t hang...
