Metallica Broke the Internet, Chad Kroeger Said Some Things, and More Top Stories of the Week


What an absolute whirlwind of a week, huh? From the sudden Metallica announcements, to Nickelback being literally everywhere again, to acquitted child killer Casey Anthony rocking out on stage with Steel Panther, we’ve had a mess of bangers over the last few days. Sometimes, poetry just writes itself, really.

And that’s not everything! Yesterday was the Pantera tribute’s first show, so we’re waiting on baited breath to see how that turned out. (Please be good. Please be good.)

So as we wait to kick off the new year with maybe some other bombshell bullshit, check out the updated Spotify playlist, scroll down for our top 10 stories of the week, and catch up on the rest on your own time. Or don’t. I’m not your dad.
