The premiere season of HBO's sci-fi Western series Westworld has featured saloon-style piano covers of a variety of famous rock songs, including Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" and Radiohead's "No Surprises." Now, you can listen to a selection of those covers on the new Westworld: Season 1 EP, which is available on iTunes.
Along with "Black Hole Sun" and "Paint It, Black," the EP also includes piano covers of The Cure's "A Forest" and The Rolling Stones' "Paint It, Black," as well as the Westworld main title theme. The covers were arranged by Ramin Djawadi, who also wrote the Game of…
The Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has lost his legal case against TNA Wrestling. According to The Tennessean, Corgan's bid to take over the pro wrestling company was rejected on Monday by a Nashville judge.
Corgan's lawsuit states that he gave three loans to TNA this year. The final loan came with a clause that would give Corgan the voting rights of TNA chairwoman Dixie Carter if TNA became insolvent, effectively giving the musician control of the company.
However, the judge ruled Monday that the loan agreement was nonbinding under Tennessee law, and Corgan did not have the right to…
Cage the Elephant has had a busy 2016, spending most of the year touring in support of their latest album, Tell Me I'm Pretty. If all goes according to plan, 2017 should be equally eventful for Matt Shultz and company.
Speaking to Fuse, Shultz says that Cage the Elephant "hopefully" will release a new album next year.
"We're gonna start demoing in December," he adds. "So [we'll] see how it goes."
Tell Me I'm Pretty, Cage the Elephant's fourth studio album, was released December 2015. It features the singles "Mess Around" and "Trouble."
In addition to working on new material,…

"In 2017, Bring Me the Horizon will invade North America," the band says in a teaser video for the tour. "Lock you doors. Bolt your windows."

Korn is in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 for the 13th time thanks to their new album, The Serenity of Suffering.
The latest effort from Jonathan Davis and company debuts at number four on this week's chart, with a total of 57,000 equivalent album units, 55,000 of which were pure album sales.

As expected, HBO's sci-fi Western series Westworld has featured plenty of cowboys, robots and robotic cowboys. Perhaps more unexpectedly, the show has also included saloon-themed piano covers of famous rock songs, one of which being Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun." Many have praised the Westworld score, which was composed by Ramin Djawadi, including Chris Cornell himself.
"I loved Ramin Djawadi's interpretation of 'Black Hole Sun,'" the Soundgarden vocalist tells Billboard. "It perfectly fits the mood of the scene, and reveals a duality that has always existed in the song."
Other saloon covers have included The Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black," Radiohead's…
Eddie Vedder performed a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in support of his beloved Chicago Cubs during Sunday night's World Series game.
"Wrigley Field is full, it's October 30 and there's baseball at Wrigley Field for the first time in history," the Pearl Jam frontman declared before his performance. The Cubs haven't won the World Series since 1908, and they haven't even played in the Fall Classic since 1945.
Though his band is closely associated with Seattle, Vedder is a passionate Cubs fan, having been born in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois.
Prophets of Rage recently wrapped up their Make America Rage Again tour, but the band won't be slowing down any time soon. The politically charged rap-rock supergroup -- made up of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, plus Public Enemy's Chuck D and Cypress Hill's B-Real -- plans to keep raging even after November 8.
"This is not a one-off thing just for the election," Commerford tells ABC Radio.
"This is a real band that I'm very excited to be able to be in when I'm 83, you know?" he laughs.
In fact, the Prophets…
Disturbed's "The Sound of Silence" is coming to virtual reality. The band has released a new, 360-degree video for their hit cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic, which you can watch through the VR app Littlstar.
Directed by Matt Mahurin, the VR video for "The Sound of Silence" delves deeper into the motifs of technology and dystopia.
"It was a thrill and a challenge (and maybe a bit ironic) to use the innovative and immersive world of VR to explore the disconnect of direct human connection that results from the addictive world of social media," says Mahurin in a…
