POISON drummer Rikki Rockett has threatened DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott with a beatdown following Elliott’s recent onstage outburst in which Joe reportedly called Rockett a “fucking idiot [who has] never seen a good band before.”
In a brand new posting in the blog section of his MySpace page, Rockett writes, “For fuck’s sake, Joe Elliott! Joe, king of the power mullet, at this point you need to shut the fuck up! No more talkin’ shit. I’ll give you a choice on how you go down. Arm bar, leg lock, shoulder lock, triangle, back choke or knock out. You pick! Let’s get it on!”
Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of the WWE. A couple of decades ago, I used to watch the WWF, when some of the classic wrestlers like Andre the Giant, The Junkyard Dog, Rowdy Piper, and Hulk Hogan were still wrestling.
I haven’t followed the WWE, and I know very few of today’s wrestlers. I typically wouldn’t give a disc like this a second look.
Whoever produced this CD, forgot to give credit to the bands performing the songs. You wont find the band names on this disc. You wil only find the name of the wrestler for who the theme was recorded for.
So why pick up the CD? Three reasons, Endeverafter, Theory of A Deadman, and Airbourne. If you are a completist, and you like to own every song, but a certain band, there may be a couple of songs on here that will interest you.
Endeverafter’s tune, No More Words was recorded for Jeff Hardy. No Chance in Hell by Theory of A Deadman was recorded as a them song for Vince McMahon, and Airbourne’s tune, Turn Up The Trouble was recorded for Mr. Kennedy.
There is also a song, Don’t Question My Heart that was performed by Saliva, with Shinedown’s Brent Smith).
The rest of the disc is mostly pop and rap music (shudder). I don’t care for either of those styles of music, so the other songs had no appeal to me. As a diehard Airbourne fan, I had to have the song, Turn Up The Trouble, and this is the only place you are going to find it.
You can find cheap copies of this disc at Amazon.com.

METALLICA has officially set Friday, September 12 as the “worldwide” release date for its new album, “Death Magnetic”. Assuming that the band has yet to announce separate release dates for the different parts of the world (since physical CDs are virtually never released on the same day “worldwide”), the September 12 date in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (where albums are traditionally issued on Fridays) would indicate that the album would arrive in the U.S. on Tuesday, September 16, with most of continental Europe getting the CD one day earlier on September 15.
Tuesdays are when almost all CDs are issued in the U.S.
METALLICA’s new CD will be available to download for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on the same day the album arrives in stores.
The band is offering the record for sale in numerous configurations, ranging from a digital-only release to a deluxe “coffin box” that will come with a bonus CD, a DVD, a T-shirt, guitar picks and other goodies.
“Death Magnetic” official track listing:
01. That Was Just Your Life
02. The End Of The Line
03. Broken, Beat & Scarred
04. The Day That Never Comes
05. All Nightmare Long
07. The Unforgiven III
08. The Judas Kiss
09. Suicide & Redemption
10. My Apocalypse
