Whether you know him from his decade-long rap career, role as Felix in Birdbox, spot-on portrayal of Tommy Lee in The Dirt, comedian Pete Davidson’s BFF, or Megan Fox’s new beau, Machine Gun Kelly, born Colson Baker, has left footprints across the entertainment industry. Hot off a summer full of home-recorded covers and his first MTV Video Music Award, MGK takes another step in a new direction with his fifth studio album, Tickets to My Downfall (Bad Boy/Interscope), wearing his heart on his sleeve for 13 tracks (and 2 interludes) of pop-punk magic. Most fittingly, the new release was executively produced by Blink 182’s Travis Barker, who Baker first collaborated with last summer on “I Think I’m Okay,” along with Brit bud Yungblud. It’s no surprise the album sounds as if it could have been born during the early-2000’s pop-punk heyday. Though TTMD is a change of pace from MGK’s typical style, it does not fully abandon his roots, highlighting a multitude of hip-hop guests and beats, party songs, and pop anthems. In fact, he has consistently cited various rock acts as influences, so it was only a matter of time until he fully submerged himself in the genre.
Machine Gun Kelly continues to surprise and impress with his eclectic series of covers he has been putting out as he pushes his creative boundaries for his eventual new solo album. Watch him cover Rihanna’s 2016 hit shows ‘Love On The Brain, done at the request of Mr. Marilyn Manson. This time, he adds a twist to Rihanna’s 2016 single “Love On The Brain”, which had an immense amount of inspiration on Marilyn Manson’s 2017 album Heaven Upside Down. Check out the cover of “Love On The Brain”! Continue reading

We have heard the hype about The Dirt, the biopic about Mötley Crüe for a long time. They have tried to make this film for ages, while it languished in development hell, finally getting made and out now streaming on Netflix. By the bands’ own admission, much like the book, the film is full of exaggerated lurid rock star clichés and partially real stories about the band. It’s just so out there and real. Too real for most people, like the band was at times. Continue reading
Mötley Crüe’s highly-anticipated Netflix biopic The Dirt, based on the best-selling book about their career is out today.

Packed with 18 songs, including ‘The Dirt’ featuring Machine Gun Kelly (portraying Tommy Lee in the film), their Madonna cover of ‘Like A Virgin’, and two other songs ‘Ride With The Devil’ and ‘Crash and Burn’.
