Dirt - Monday, Apr 03

Holy moly.  When you order something online to be delivered  to a store and they say its ready to pick up and can’t find it, then you call them back the next day and then say you picked it up the previous day, UM,  I am not happy!

But OMG, THIS HAPPENED!

Happy for the new couple!  Speaking of Wrestlemania, if you were wrapped up in WrestleMania 33 over the weekend, you were also listening to Metallica. “Am I Savage” was the official theme song for Sunday night’s match between Triple H and Seth Rollins in Orlando, FL.

Pro wrestler, Triple H took to twitter to thank Metallica for the song and posted a promotional video for the match. The song is from Metallica’s latest album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart in November.

The “Am I Savage?” video was directed by the Brooklyn-based high-art photography duo Herring and Herring, who photographed Metallica for the Hardwired…To Self-Destruct album package.  The long-awaited follow-up to 2008′s “Death Magnetic”Hardwired…To Self-Destruct consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.

 

Major League Baseball has officially opened its season and Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder is in the thick of it. A lifelong baseball fan, he continues to show his love for his favorite team, the Chicago Cubs.

Last season, Cubs players, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo decided to open up the Bryzzo Souvenir Company and asked Vedder to write a jingle for them. Fans will find that he briefly appears in the commercial as he sings the jingle he wrote. It debuted over the weekend and will continue to air throughout the season on MLB.

In other Pearl Jam news, it’s a big week for the band that formed in 1990. Neil Young will do the honors of inducting them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, at a ceremony in New York on Friday.  Pearl Jam’s next concert is Apr 29 in Boston.  For more concert info: https://pearljam.com/tour

With the words #studio and #next album posted on Shinedown’s Twitter page, singer, Brent Smith of Shinedown gave fans a hint of what’s to come.  The Jacksonville, FL based band is currently on the road in support of their 2015 album, Threat To Survival, and just kicked off their West Coast tour over the weekend. Opening acts include As Lions and Coldkingdom.

Later this month, the band will travel to the UK to begin another tour with Iron Maiden.
