The Hymn For The Weekend band kicked off their show with a minute of silence for the 59 lives lost in the devastating Las Vegas shooting, blacking out the stadium and letting the audience's cell phone screens illuminate the Moda Center. Later in the concert, the band paid tribute to Tom Petty, who passed away after suffering a massive cardiac arrest. Video: Rock Out To Tom Petty's Classics! In a final salute to the rock legend, Chris Martin called R.E.M. lead guitarist Peter Buck to the stage and played a touching cover of Petty's 1989 track Free Fallin', the lead single off his solo debut album Full Moon Fever. Both emotional moments were shared to the band's social media accounts. Watch the incredible tribute performance (below).

Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers

Music and pop culture continually have a tremendous impact on our world. Iconic has re-entered our everyday language. And for a good reason (Have you HEARD Kiwi?)! Something that’s iconic is highly original; it’s innovative or influential. These ten album covers are iconic, the times and artists they represent helped shape music into what it has become, and these particular covers are immediately recognizable even by the most casual listeners. Nirvana: Nevermind The baby on the cover of this album is named Spencer Elden, and because of the explosive success of this album, he will always be the most famous baby in the rock industry! Kurt Cobain had this concept come to him while watching a documentary about water births with Dave Grohl. He wanted to paint a picture of a baby already corrupted by money and greed – and he definitely succeeded in a controversial way. Pink Floyd: Dark Side of The Moon This slightly trippy prism design adorns Pink Floyd’s eighth album. It is among the most recognizable images in rock music. Storm Thorgerson was the band’s graphic designer for the cover, and he told Rolling Stone that he used the triangle as a symbol of thought and ambition, which he felt related to the lyrics in a big way. It is also reminiscent of a light show. George Hardie put the image together, and he says it represents three things, “the band’s stage lighting, the album lyrics, and [keyboardist, Richard] Wright’s request for a ‘simple and bold’ design.” The Beatles: Abbey Road The Beatles are iconic in their own right, but the photo that was used for the cover of their eleventh studio release, Abbey Road, is almost the definition of iconic. It is also the last album where all four of the men participated in the recording sessions. The photo was taken right outside of the EMI Studios building where they recorded the songs. The album saw immediate commercial success and is regarded as the band’s best album, and one of the best albums of all time. The album’s cover has become one of the most famous images in music, and hundreds of people flock to that street to recreate it every year. The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Andy Warhol had been approached before about doing album art for The Rolling Stones, but they didn’t use his design for the original album they approached him for. Later, his idea of using a working zipper on an album cover sprung to life on the cover of Sticky Fingers. Warhol and a graphic artist named Craig Braun worked together on this suggestive art, and the art actually won a Grammy. The zipper opened to reveal some white underwear. Oddly, the cover was banned in Spain and changed to a pretty disturbing picture of a can of fingers in some blood. David Bowie: Aladdin Sane The sixth album in David Bowie’s discography came right after his 1972 concept album, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust. Even though this wasn’t the first time his [...] The post Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

The group – comprised of brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met – have been playing music together since they were kids. Just Jared exclusively sat down with the group while they celebrated their new album at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The band opened up about life on the road, their favorite musicians and what’s coming next. Here’s what AJR had to say: Give us the scoop on the new album: Adam: “We worked on this album for two years because we had a very specific intention behind the album. We wanted to write about real issues in a way people hadn’t thought about. So each of the songs has a kind of ‘I can relate to that but I hadn’t really thought about it in that way’ moment. Like there are so many songs on the radio about being strong and confident but our single ‘Weak’ takes a different approach, saying, ‘We’re weak and what’s wrong with that?’” Click inside to read the rest of the interview…. What are your tour bus essentials? Jack: “This tour is our first time on a tour bus! We have a Wii. We didn’t grow up with video games so when we got old enough we bought our own Wii and we’re obsessed with playing Mario Kart. It’s what we do all day. And food? String cheese. We need it at all times. Wii and string cheese.” What places are you most excited to stop on tour? Ryan: “It’s always interesting to see what markets get the most hype. For some reason, Salt Lake City, everyone really goes crazy. Indianapolis too! And Portland too, because that’s a great music town.” What else are you passionate about? Ryan: “We’re really into film and we direct a lot of our own videos and all of our behind-the-scenes videos. We’re actually at Columbia University right now to study film because that’s also something we want to do someday.” Who are some artists you’re into right now? Jack: “We just tweeted about this guy! His name is Michael Blume. He’s super unknown and he’s just coming up now but we like to find artists with a similar sound to us. Those are the artists we get attached to and he has a great sound. We also brought this girl name Samia on tour with us…she sings a lot of the female vocals on our songs. She’s an unbelievable singer/songwriter.” What’s next now that the album has dropped? Ryan: “What’s so cool is that as our album is getting big, it allows for a lot of collaborations. Our album isn’t really in a certain lane – you wouldn’t call it pop or rock or alternative…so we have a lot of different collaborations and people in different lanes reaching out to us…We have a bunch of EDM collaborations and a hip hop collaboration coming out!”.....»»
