Disturbed Return To a Familiar Place – No. 1 On The Billboard 20
Disturbed shocked the world this week – NOT! The popular rock band debuted at #1 for a fifth straight time with Immortalized, their first new album in five years. The numbers weren’t sexy per se, but the 98,000 units were enough to seal the deal atop the Billboard 200. Still, isn’t it a shame that no album was able to move 100,000 units for a second straight week? It’s not 42,000 units level of tepidness that Descendants endured, but still.

2015 VMAs Fashion: Stars Bare Lots Of Skin, Flaunt Their Curves
The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. The show allows singers to let loose when it comes to what they wear -- and they often wear very little.

10 Songs About Death And Burial
Death is an eerie thing – understatement to the nth degree. Still, it’s real-life and as uncomfortable a topic it may be, it must be discussed.
