Papa Roach “No Apologies”



I’ve been rocking to Papa Roach since “Last Resort” became every wannabe angsty teens anthem in 2000. Kind of depressing that was 22 years ago, but whatever.  And what I love is that they continuously put out new music that is fresh but still has their unmistakable sound.

Their latest single “No Apologies” is such an important song right now, espeically with so many suffering from mental health issues. I hope everyone has someone in their lives that they don’t need to apologize to. Things happen. People go through stuff. Being a human is hard. I like that this song touches on that, and hopefully helps someone in the end.

After almost 30 years, Papa Roach is still getting it done. Also, their new album “Ego Trip” is out now.

Three Days Grace “Lifetime”

Ok, so maybe it’s not brand new… but when it hit, I was on vacation, and it’s still new enough to Rock radio that I wanted to give it a mention.

I’m a longtime Three Days Grace fan. They’ve consistently put out great, radio-friendly rock songs over the past couple of decades (which makes me feel old AF) and their new song “Lifetime” is another surefire #1.  It’s got a great sound, hell of a message, and triggers emotion.  And the video has me wishing I wore waterproof mascara today.

The overall message is one I can’t stress enough.

Appreciate all you have. It could be gone in a heartbeat.

I’m gonna go cry some more now.



New Mammoth WVH!

The newest radio single by Mammoth WVH (Fronted by the son of the late, great Eddie Van Halen’s song Wolfgang) is one of my favorite new releases on Rock radio right now.  I was really hoping this would be his latest single, and that wish was granted.

“Epiphany” has all the stuff I like- great bass line and guitar riff, passionate vocals, and a power chorus.  I’m betting this will be #1 on the Active Rock charts by the Spring. Calling it now.


Thank you, Eddie Van Halen, for the music and for passing that talent onto your son!
