THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

The Random Rock: News on FOO FIGHTERS, BEA MILLER, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, more...

I get hit with so much music news here at Rock Father HQ that there's barely any way to cover it - much less a lot of it. That's why I'm going to make an effort to get my old "Random Rock" column happening on a more frequent basis again. The deal is simple - I'll start off with a stream or video to enjoy while reading, followed by a list of quick news items from around the music world (though likely with a "rock" focus). If you'd like to know more about a story, a link will be provided to do so.  Here we go...

For Grownups: Trailer - DIANI & DEVINE MEET THE APOCALYPSE

What does $100K raised on Kickstarter get you? A lot of different things, I'm sure, but for Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine, $101,145 has funded the product of DIANI & DEVINE MEET THE APOCALYPSE, a new film starring a who's who of familiar faces from "some of their favorite stuff" (as noted in their crowdfunding pitch). The first teaser for the film has arrived, with pre-orders now up on their official site. Judging from this, it looks like MAD MAX with pretzels and a shopping cart. Check it out...

#ForGrownups: The New OK GO Single is Completely Infectious, and Totally NSFW or Kids...

I have an extreme love for HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, so when word arrived that HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 was a real deal - I was sold. Originally scheduled for release this past Christmas, the movie is now being released on February 20, 2015 via Paramount Pictures, and the first single from the soundtrack is almost hard to believe. If you've seen the R-Rated "red band" trailer, then you've already heard the catchy little jingle that Craig Robinson and Rob Corddry throw down for Clark Duke... a little something about being "a f***ing nerd." Well, OK GO - known for doing family-friendly tunes with THE MUPPETS have made that song into a ridiculously catchy jam that will be hard to play for anyone but grownups. Hear the single below, but keep the kids away...

Watch Now: ENTOURAGE - The Movie Trailer has Arrived! #EntourageMovie

It's hard to believe, but this past summer marked the 10th anniversary of the premiere of ENTOURAGE on HBO. I was completely on-board from the first episode, and watching the show with friends became a weekly tradition. There were parallels to my own group of friends at the time, as I was in the midst of pursuing a career in film/tv, as were a couple others close to me - one of which was a rising actor. By the time the final season rolled around, I actually missed it and stayed completely spoiler-free until binge watching it earlier this year. Now, the first "official teaser" trailer for Warner Bros.' big-screen ENTOURAGE adventure has arrived, and it's reminded me just how sorely this show has been missed. Watch it below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Preview: VH1 Goes Back to 1995 with HINDSIGHT

Now this is interesting... VH1 has HINDSIGHT, a new (thankfully) scripted series making it's debut on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. What piqued my interest? Time travel and the 1990s. That was a great decade (met my wife in '97), so the prospect of seeing a new series set in that period is appealing to me, if only for a nostalgia trip. The extended first-look (embedded below) features music from the SPIN DOCTORS, ACE OF BASE, HADDAWAY and EMF, while containing nods to THE BLACK CROWES, SNOOP DOGGY DOGG and FRIENDS. Check it out...
