A BigBang Bio

By BigBang

"I know the name is kinda cheesy, but these guys are from Norway, they don’t know English very well, but they are great trust me!" - Hakim (in the men’s room at Three of Clubs in Hollywood right before our second show in L.A. I was there too, my back facing the conversationalists.)

I used to skate for about six hours everyday, and when skateboarding started to feel wrong (due to badly performed knee surgery and the slow death of vert-skating) I called up my sponsors and had them stop the shipments of boards, baggy pants, trucks and wheels. At about the same time I had started going to Forsøksgymnaset in Oslo, a very alternative school were the only thing the students had in common was that they didn’t really belong anywhere else. I met Christer there and we founded BigBang with second cousin Erik on Bass.

There were junkies of all degrees, leftwing activists (the majority), Satanists, skateboarders, hip-hoppers, and maybe one or two "straight" people who were really the interesting ones. Of course they had a story like a car crash recovery or mental illness etc. Otherwise they wouldn’t have been there.

Playing with Christer and Erik became a substitute for the long skate sessions and it was all about band practice, at least for me. I remember people saying you need to play shows and start recording. I also remember being a skater and hating how skateboarders were supposed to listen to "skate-rock".

We have released many records and done some fun things since then, but you can look that up online. Here’s what David Fricke wrote about our first US release: From Acid to Zen that came out last year:

It's a shotgun buffet, like those early U.S. LPs by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that combined album tracks and singles from unrelated sessions, and it succeeds the same way: like an instant greatest-hits record.

Singer-guitarist-songwriter Øystein Greni has the right history in his genes - his dad sang in a Norwegian band that opened for Led Zeppelin in 1968 - and he grounds songs like "Early December," "Hurricane Boy" and the brilliantly titled "From Acid to Zen" in the eternal power-chord charge and fish-hook riffs of the Stones and the Who. But Greni also has a knack for wringing fresh excitement from the familiar: the country-angel harmonies and ice-Byrds guitar in the new version of "Wild Bird," the improbable dream of Badfinger and Hüsker Dü in "The One." For Greni, who co-produced the new tracks with Phil Nicolo, From Acid to Zen is a big step in a bigger gamble.

Another step would be our new album Edendale with strong ties to my adopted home in California. The area of Los Angeles today known as Echo Park/Silverlake used to be called Edendale around the time when the silent movie industry took off. Charlie Chaplin's studio -now a storage place - is on my block, and Walt Disney's first film studio was across the street from the local Trader Joes. In Europe we tend to romanticize things and people from the past; here it's all about moving on to the next project. Ironically, as much as I wanted to get away from the stale museum-like atmosphere of Europe, I get here and start focusing on LA's fascinating past!

Edendale was recorded in Los Angeles at the legendary Sound City Studios (Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash, Metallica), with an impressive list of collaborators: Producers: Greg Richling (Wallflowers, Black Flag) and myself Øystein Greni, Technician/mixer: Bryan Cook (Queens of the Stone Age, Raconteurs, The Bird and The Bee), Mastered by: Gavin Lurssen (Robert Plant/Alison Krauss, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello). Guest guitarists: David Rawlings (Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch), Maria Orieta, Jared Nelson Smith (Hello Stranger) and the magnificent Joshua Moore on piano and pump organs etc.

Oh yes I forgot to mention; there have been many lineup changes. All bands have these situations were the Brotherhood of the Treehut must be challenged by the Love of Music. I really admire the bands that stick together thru thick and thin. This has not been the case with BigBang and the tales of fighting and grief are many and not all boring. But trust me, somehow we are all still friends.

On this record (and hopefully on our upcoming tour) Olaf Olsen plays the drums and Nikolai Eilertsen plays bass. I do realize that I am very lucky to play with such fine musicians!

As for the celeb name-dropping, we are friends of Midlake of Denton TX and my stab at a guitar part might’ve made it onto their new record. We also warmed up for the great band the Raconteurs on the UK leg of the "Broken Boy Soldiers" tour. And the legendary Billy Gibbons of ZZ-top joined us at a show in Los Angeles playing guitar on "Welcome to the Mountains".

Some more quotes with comments!

"Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young with balls. BigBang are the hottest, most exciting thing to come out of the Arctic Circle right now' The Sun (U.K)

We all know the arctic isn’t so hot, but the balls part was flattering.

"They seem to have perfected melding Allman Brothers-like harmonies, the hum-along quality of a really good Tom Petty, and the guitar outbursts of a J. Mascis moment." - Evan George, LA Alternative

The Allman Brothers - I never listened to much, but the other two I quite like!

'Tight as a nun's wotsit live BigBang combine dreamy Tom Petty type vocals and lyrics with hints of a mellower Led Zeppelin melody wise. Beautiful'" Disorder Magazine

A nun´s wotsit?

"BigBang lit the power-pop chime and song writing of Big Star and late eighties R.E.M with the power blues dynamics of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble' " David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Or how about The Band instead of double trouble? Huge fan of Big Star though!

'These guys reach for rock's truest revelation: to ride the thrill infused sound until finding oneself at a higher elevation'" Flaunt Magazine

American poetry.

Øystein Greni Los Angeles, Oct. 2. 2009.

From Acid to Zen
(Grand Sport/Oglio)
“Big Bang lit the power-pop chine and songwriting of Big Star and late-Eighties R.E.M. with the power-blues dynamics of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Double Trouble” --David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“They seem to have perfected melding Allman Brothers-like harmonies, the hum-along quality of a really good Tom Petty, and the guitar outbursts of a J. Mascis moment.” — Evan George, LA Alternative

BigBang’s new release From Acid to Zen (Grand Sport/Oglio) is an album saturated with a genuine, raw, but melodic rock ‘n’ roll vibe that isn’t weighed down by ‘70s cliché and nostalgia. One listen to From Acid to Zen could transport the listener back to a ‘70s barroom or to a modern dive where Cream, The Allman Brothers, Petty and the Who would be welcomed on the jukebox along side Dinosaour Jr.

Already a phenomenon in their native Norway, From Acid to Zen is the first full-length BigBang album to arrive on U.S. shores. Lead singer/songwriter Øystein Greni explains “If there is theme behind this record it would be the search for good rock songs that are melancholic without being nerdy and powerful without being macho.” These former Warner Music Norway signees are gold-selling artists. They have earned two Scandinavian #1 albums (2005’s Poetic Terrorism and 2007’s Too Much Yang) and currently hold the highest selling live album in Norway’s history (2003’s Radio Radio TV Sleep).

Much of From Acid to Zen was written on the road as BigBang criss-crossed Northern Europe. Greni credits a stint as openers for the Raconteurs with “helping to shape the sound of this record.” The album was also molded from behind the boards by the expertise of Phil Nicolo (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam) who co-produced several of From Acid to Zen’s eleven tracks with Greni and by mixers Sylvia Massey (Tom Petty, Johnny Cash) and Michael Ilbert (the Hives, Soundtrack to Our Lives).

From the placement of the title track at the end of the CD, it is clear that this band has no weak links when it comes to creating rousing, anthemic, arena-ready tracks that encourage loud sing-alongs and that command repeat listening. Standout tracks include “Hurricane Boy,” a decadent rock song with a punk vocal delivery and the ethereal “Wild Bird,” which Greni says combines “the mysticism of traditional Norwegian folklore with a classic West Coast sound.”

Rolling Stone - Fricke's Pick
The first American full-length album by the Norwegian trio BigBang, From Acid to Zen (Oglio/Grand Sport), is a mixed bag of then and now: seven tracks pulled from the group’s most recent Norwegian releases, 2005’s Poetic Terrorism and 2007’s Too Much Yang, both Number One albums there, plus recut versions of two older numbers and two new songs. It’s a shotgun buffet, like those early U.S. LPs by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that combined album tracks and singles from unrelated sessions, and it succeeds the same way: like an instant greatest-hits record.

Singer-guitarist-songwriter Øystein Greni has the right history in his genes — his dad sang in a Norwegian band that opened for Led Zeppelin in 1968 — and he grounds songs like “Early December,” “Hurricane Boy” and the brilliantly titled “From Acid to Zen” in the eternal power-chord charge and fish-hook riffs of the Stones and the Who. But Greni also has a knack for wringing fresh excitement from the familiar: the country-angel harmonies and ice-Byrds guitar in the new version of “Wild Bird,” the improbable dream of Badfinger and Hüsker Dü in “The One.” For Greni, who co-produced the new tracks with Phil Nicolo, From Acid to Zen is a big step in a bigger gamble.

After more than a decade of Pearl Jam-like success in Norway, Greni recently moved to Los Angeles, determined to break America the hard way. He, original drummer Olaf Olsen and new bassist Øyvind Storli Hoel now play clubs here with a set list that still rules Scandinavian festivals and is basically this album in your face: proven hits with forward thrust.

About The Leftovers

The Leftovers ultra-catchy power pop gems in their new release, “Eager To Please”, successfully combines the classic 60's sounds of The Beatles and the Beach Boys with the 70's Power Pop of Elvis Costello, The Romantics and the Rubinoos, while keeping the upbeat energy of the Ramones and The Queers. That's right folks, "Eager to Please" has a little something for every fan of Power Pop and Post Punk music.

The Leftovers new album "Eager to Please" was produced by Linus of Hollywood and features Kim Shattuck of The Muffs, Brett Anderson of The Donnas, Parry Gripp from Nerf Herder, Coz Canler from the Romantics and Jon Rubin of the Rubinoos!

Hailing from Portland, Maine, The Leftovers formed in 2002, have played over 350 shows to date including touring the UK and has garnered a true cult following within the underground pop-punk scene, getting attention from all-stars Ben Weasel (of Screeching Weasel fame) and Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records).

The Leftovers are a freakin breath of fresh air! They are fun, fascinating and ROCKIN! And most of all, chicks dig em!

Can’t Stop

Can't Stop - Eager to Please

Well Susie looks so pretty
And Natalie is on my mind
There’s just some things about those girls
That make me feel so fine

But in the end you’re the special one
Lets get together and have a little fun you know that

I can’t stop, no I can’t stop
Lovin’ you girl it’s what I gotta do

Make no mistake about it
You are my favorite girl
It’s just the way you walk and the way you talk
That’s got my heart in a whirl

Can’t stop from loving you
Can’t stop from missing you
Can’t stop from kissing you cause it’s true
Can’t stop from wondering
Can’t stop from dreaming
Can’t stop from seeing you cause it’s true

Telephone Operator

Telephone Operator - Eager to Please

Telephone operator get me to my girl
Telephone operator get me to my girl

I tried the yellow pages and the classifieds
But I can’t seem to get through
I’m sick of listening to the dial tone
I just wanna be listening to you

Seven numbers that I dialed a thousand times
I can’t through I don’t know why
The lady tells me that your mailbox is full
Is she saying that there’s some other guy

All my friends are mad cause they can’t get through to me
But I don’t have a good excuse
They got me thinking I should just hang up
Cause maybe you are calling me too


Girlfriend - Eager to Please

She’s on the phone and telling me that
My friends are dumb and asking if I’ll
Go take her out- dinner and a movie

She’s making me dress all nice and
Keeps giving me bad advice on
How she thinks I should try to make a living

But it’s even more than that
Her kisses aren’t that good
And I wish that she would leave
But I don’t think she would

And I don’t want my girlfriend
Oh to be my girlfriend anymore
I really wanna tell her
But I think that she would just ignore
Cause it’s so hard to keep my eyes off girls
When they walk on by
So I don’t want my girlfriend
I’d rather be a single guy

She complains about most everything and
Doesn’t like to dance or sing so
Why’s she with me? I don’t understand it

And here’s why:
Stay out do whatever I want to
Talk and kiss with every girl I meet
She couldn’t do a thing about it
Not this time cause she’s not with me

Get To Know You

(featuring Kim Shattuck from The Muffs)

Get to Know You (feat. Kim Shattuck) - Eager to Please

I need the sunshine and the sand
I need a girl to hold my hand
If what I say is true then I really want to get to know you

I need the moon and the stars above
I need a girl to share all my love
If what I say is true then I really want to get to know you

I know I’m not the coolest guy
So if you have some reasons why
You don’t think that you should be my girl
Well I’m not waiting around for you

I need the music and the fun
Now that the party has just begun
If what I say is true then I really want to get to know you

Thinking About Her

Thinking About Her - Eager to Please

Every time she goes away she’s always on my mind
These old feelings that she brings they keep me up all night
I wont go lie and say she’s not a pretty girl
But it’s so hard thinking about her

The way she moves around the floor she’s dancing all night long
Why’d she have to tell me words that left me feeling wrong
I wont go lie and say she’s not a pretty girl
But it’s so hard thinking about her

All the things she does
Makes me love her more
I just can’t bear to be around her
All the things she says
Give me chills inside
She’s stuck completely in my head

I don’t want to think about the love we could have had
The times we shared I never thought that they would end so bad
I won’t go lie and say she’s not a pretty girl
But it’s so hard thinking about her

You Know What You Do

You Know What You Do - Eager to Please

When I met that girl you know I think I lost my mind
She was hangin after class I didn’t want to waste no time
Cool, calm, and collected I went up to talk to her
Before I even knew it I had got her name and number

I don’t know how things go this way
But I’m hoping that she’ll be mine someday

Cause you know what you do to me baby
I’m breaking all the rules and going crazy
You know what you do to me baby
I’m falling for you, so I’m hoping that you’ll stay around

Every time I wake you know she’s always on my mind
I can’t help but wonder what she’s thinking at the same time
All these thoughts and feeling yeah they really make me shake
There’s a reason for this love and I’m hoping that its fate

We could walk hand in hand
I hoping that you’ll understand
You know I’m only thinking of you
You got me running around in my head
Thinking of the things I said
You say you don’t know, but I say its true

I Want You Back

I Want You Back - Eager to Please

A Year ago today you were my girl
The only thing I wanted in this world
But now you’ve gone away
And I can’t stand to bear the pain

Too many weeks have gone without a word
I can’t believe I acted so absurd
But this is how I am
I gotta see you again

And when I try
To call you
You wont pick up the phone
If this is real
Then I know
That I’ll always be alone

And I want you back back baby
Back in my arms
So don’t lose track baby
Cause I want you back back baby
Back in my arms

I heard your name called out the other day
I used to believe every word you’d say
But now that time is gone
I hope you feel like you were wrong

Every seconds like the one before
I keep on waiting but you just ignore
The things I say to you
The games we play I always lose

I thought I’d lose you from my mind
But now you’re back again this time


(Featuring Coz Canler)

Untouchable (feat. Coz Canler) - Eager to Please

She’s a popular girl
She’s walking down the hall
Everybody stops and stairs
Cause she’s a work of art

She drives around town
In a Corvette Car
You better watch what you say
She’ll drive right through your heart

You might think you’ve got her all figured out
Don’t try to take her hand its not allowed because she’s

She’s so untouchable
She’s so, I don’t think I’ll ever get a hold
She’s so untouchable

She’s always got a boyfriend
Who takes up all her time
If you wanna get closer
You better get in line

She’s listening to her records
She really digs that rock n roll
You’re gonna see her at the party
You’re gonna lose control

You think you know her
You can’t get enough
I hate to break the news
She doesn’t care about your love

Lost and Found

Lost and Found - Eager to Please

Pretty eyes of electric blue
I got excited when I first met you
How was I to know that things would go this way
We were together for oh so long
But now you left me on my own
That summer night when you found another man

And now I bet she’s having fun
Chewing on her bubble gum
And I thought she was the one
But now I’m saying

Used to love me, now you don’t
I could try, but I just wont
I’m stuck in the lost and found
I miss you and you hate me
You never come to check and see
I’m stuck in the lost and found
Now you’ve found someone new
And now I’m lost and feeling used so

Baby I’m lost and found

Disregard the love we had
Cause now I’m feeling oh so sad
With no one that I can call my own

I used to sit around I never could complain
But it was love that you were faking
And now I can’t afford to play your little game
But that was the chance that I was taking

Get Out Of My Head

Get Out of My Head - Eager to Please

This time I really think I lost my brain
Cause all my thoughts are still of you
You really did me wrong and led me on to think
That someday our love would be true

My friends all warned me from the very start
That you would hurt me in the end
I should’ve known better cause now we’re done
And I don’t wanna be just a friend

It’s been two weeks
Since I’ve seen your face
So why are you still in my mind?

You gotta get get get out of my head tonight.

I thought we had so much we that could talk about
But quickly it dissolved in the air
I’m fine with never ever seeing you again
So why does your image last

And I think it’s so unfair
To pretend your love is there

The Only One

(Featuring Parry Gripp)

The Only One (feat. Parry Gripp) - Eager to Please

She said come over next Saturday night
I’m in on what to do
I gotta tell her the way I feel
Cause my feelings are so true

Every damn night and day
She’s always on my mind
She’s so hot she’s the only one
And she’s gonna be mine

There is no other girl
Yeah I got to be with you
You are the only one
So I hope you need me too

We put some records on the stereo
We’re dancing all night long
Then she turned the lights down low
That’s when we had some fun

Make You Mine

Make You Mine - Eager to Please

Hey little girl if you knew
About all the things I’d say to you
Would you stay or change your mind
Cause I gotta gotta make you mine

And all the things that I would say
Would prove I can’t go on this way
I need your love all the time
So I gotta gotta make you mine

And I don’t know just what to do
If I don’t make you all mine tonight

Hey little girl can’t you see
That I’m begging on my bended knees
For you to stay, don’t change your mind
Cause I gotta gotta make you mine

I think that I’m falling in love again
I said I never would, but now I see you and I think I should
Give it at least one more chance

Dance With Me

Dance With Me - Eager to Please

I’m not the most romantic of guys
No I’m not the one that you want
But now the night’s here and the mood is right
Yeah the music has just begun

You said you like me just as a friend
You never thought the other way
Well I said there’s nothing wrong with that
But you never know what can change

So won’t you dance with me, dance with me
And take my hand and take a walk with me, walk with me
I think you’re gonna be the one baby, one baby
I gotta make you understand

You went to go dance with your man
I thought I’d never see you again
The club was crowded and dark but just to my luck
You looked at me I asked for your hand

Now I can’t explain it, it’s my timing and you know that it’s true
But then I turned your way, I finally got to say “here it goes…”

Party Til We Die

(Featuring Brett Anderson from The Donnas)

Party Til We Die (feat. Brett Anderson) - Eager to Please

Taking all the drugs that we can find
Music so loud it’ll blow your mind
The girl next to me she’s a bitchin babe
Hammerin down with one foot in the grave

So we can party
Party til we die
We’re gonna party til we die

Somebody’s car’s parked out on the lawn
It’s a damn good thing that your old man’s gone
The house is trashed everybody’s wasted
I’m sure glad this aint my place

Excerpt from AllMusic.com review by Mark Deming

It's certainly good to know that Kim Shattuck and her partners in pop-punk, the Muffs, are still at it 11 years after dropping their first long-player (particularly since the sainted and not dissimilar Fastbacks have called it a career), and 2004's Really Really Happy shows that she's held on to the virtues that made her (and her band) lots of fun in the first place. Shattuck still has a great ear for guitar hooks, can play 'em with an admirable sense of chunky economy, and writes lyrics that blend an overgrown teenager's sense of snooty goofiness (or goofy snottiness) without shortchanging the relationship stuff that's usually the province of us grown-ups...

Wesley Willis – Rock n Roll Will Never Die

Wesley Willis passed away on Thursday August 21, 2003 at the age of 40. We here at CoolCDs.com and Oglio Records are very saddened by his passing. He left a big impression everywhere he went and with everyone he met. We'll never forget him.

Wesley was a Chicago Street artist and diagnosed chronic schizophrenic. Wesley was haunted by demons that called him names and taunted him. While most people would be severely hampered by such an illness, Wesley took it as a reason to rock. During his life, Wesley attracted the attention of music business stars like White Zombie, Henry Rollins, Jello Biafra, members of the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This CD is a collection of the best of Wesley's songs about his favorite rock bands. Order it, you'll love it!

Wisely – Wisely

Buy Now!


A genuine album in a singles era, Wisely asks James Blunt and Jenny Lewis to close their eyes and touch noses with twelve songs for change, California, and Billy Preston that signal the graduation of a cult hero into rich, real life.  Looking back: once there was a kid named Willie who couldn’t decide if he wanted to be John Lennon, Paul Westerberg, or Sammy Davis Jr. Luckily, it was the late 80’s in Minneapolis.  You could be all three at once. He enjoyed some success at this. Of course the kid was ahead of his time and, of course, Willie Wisely had to leave home to shake off that youthful genius and just be genius.


Living in a teetering Victorian dive in Dinkytown, the university crossroads where a Zimmerman once became a Dylan, Wisely made music by day and worked in the famous First Avenue nightclub promotions office downtown at night. He saw every band that mattered twice and perfected his own approach with a scrappy pop-punk-jazz quartet he called his trio. They toured like madmen, crisscrossing the American highways, playing college commons, dives, and rec rooms. After two, fine W.W. Trio albums, Wisely went solo. The year was 1996: Endtroducing…, If You’re Feeling Sinister, Pinkerton, She.


“It easily heads up the short list of the area’s finest pop record of the year.” - St. Paul Pioneer Press

Released on a label owned by the guy who wrote “Funkytown,” She was the record in Wisely’s head when he first picked up a guitar. Together with future Switchfoot, Mandy Moore, and Jimmy Eat World producer John Fields, Wisely dug fast and deep into the crates blurting out a collection of strangely related singles sick with luscious hooks, ringing guitars, and clever choruses cut with wild runs at soul, jazz, and glam rock: Wisely’s masterpiece.

“The most righteous blend of '60s pop and '70s rock.” - Los Angeles Weekly

Clearly it was time to leave home.


With a foot in Silverlake and a hand in Hollywood Wisely played Twister under the palm fronds. He chatted up Beck at parties, enthused about Eleni Mandell, and got cast in the first episode Six Feet Under. He released another album with now fellow Midwest expat Fields, composed a few indie soundtracks, and produced a wide range of artists. Time flew. The opportunity came to work with producer Linus of Hollywood and the resulting Parador revealed another leap forward. The LA Times quickly declared it his “most accomplished album.” Jenna Fischer of The Office enthused on her blog and—wait, that’s her in the video for “Through Any Window.”


In the meantime Wisely became Mr. Wisely with a Mrs. and, some time later, Daddy Wisely, soon to be double deluxe gate-fold. He wrote, recorded, erased, recorded, and wrote. With 76 acoustic demos in-hand Wisely called his friend Petur Smith and they went down into the basement.

“I was painfully aware that spending six months working on an album, earning little or no money, was gonna be a huge burden on my family, while Kay sat listening to drum takes through the floor, gestating our 2nd kid.  There could be no artifice. Just beauty. All architecture. No… musicals.”

Wisely had never been so plain spoken. Songs like “On My Way” and “Vanilla” moved naturally on well-lit paths to chorus. Some tracks remained little changed from the original demos. Others took root a world away from She; spare, deep, and sweetly nostalgic.

“As far as production touchstones, we listened to Graham Coxon’s Happiness In Magazines, and Aha Shake Heartbreak by Kings of Leon. Boss of Sweden, Phoenix. We wanted directness. We didn’t think much about my past work.”

Songs fell away and songs grew larger. Those that stuck were personal, full frontal. “It’s Gonna Be Beautiful” daring to say “make love” and mean it, the concrete poetry of “Unfamiliar,” and one song for Ella Wisely, age 1.

As the project developed, the sessions were joined and inspired by many like-minded LA musicians including members of Paul McCartney’s band, Ray Wonder, and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives.

“Petur and I kept screaming at each other about how roofy or unroofy it was. The mantra for the production session was, ‘could the Beatles have played this with Billy Preston on the rooftop?’”

Finally. The record that was in his head when he first crossed the California state border. Genius. Wisely.

Excerpt from AllMusicGuide.com Album Review by Greg Prato

Remember the band Dread Zeppelin? Well, here's a reminder -- they're a band that caused a minor stir in the early '90s when they took Led Zeppelin classics, added a dash of reggae, and were fronted by an Elvis Presley impersonator (who alternated between reciting Zeppelin and Elvis lyrics). It was perhaps only a matter of time until another group came along that mashed together two other renowned rock acts, and while Zeppelin and Elvis aren't exactly universes apart musically, the Beatles and Metallica are -- which makes the emergence of Beatallica much more of a curiosity...

Excerpt from AllMusicGuide.com Album Review by Jason Lymangrover

The world's favorite impersonators of Metallica impersonating the Beatles are back with their second release All You Need Is Blood. This time they've taken "All You Need Is Love" and replaced the lyrics with metal-themed flair to convert lines like "nothing you can see that can't be shown" to "nothin' you can smash that can't be smashed" in a dead-on James Hetfield imitation...
