Work-Out Mix: Latin

It’s work out time and this week we’re running and cycling along to some fist-pumping Latin beats.

90s Post-Grunge

The 90s alternative scene was the birthplace of post-grunge; a radio-friendly form of grunge that would rapidly gain mainstream success with bands like Foo Fighters, Nickelback and Creed. To celebrate the new Foo Fighters’ album, let’s rediscover some of the best ’90s post-grunge.

New Releases, November 2014

This week’s new release update features the art-school heroes of yesteryear (Bryan Ferry, David Bowie) mixed in with such leftfield new music practitioners as Ariel Pink and Mykki Blanco. In addition you’ll hear new music from U2, Foo Fighters and the new Hunger Games soundtrack.

88 Hits Of The 1980s

In the 1980s, Michael Jackson became the King of Pop, MTV became a sensation, both synth-pop and rap hit the charts while older rockers – from The Stones to Tina Turner – proved they were still a big part of the picture.

Hip-Hop New Releases, Nov. 2014

Big Sean, Danny Brown, Eminem, Royce Da 5’9” – and that’s just the first song (really, it’s the all-star “Detroit Vs. Everybody”). From there, it’s new singles from Nicki Minaj, Bobby Shmurda, E-40 and a track from the long-awaited full-length from Azealia Banks.

One of rock ‘n’ roll’s most unlikely second acts, Foo Fighters emerged from the ashes of Nirvana to be become one of the most successful guitar acts of the 21st century. Their adherence to classic rock forms, informed by punk and the aesthetics of their extremely likable and passionate frontman Dave Grohl, helped build a diverse and melodic catalog chock full of fist-pumping riffs. The band just announced a massive 2015 North American tour. Listen to Foo Fighters’ classics like “My Hero,” “This Is a Call” and “Best of You” before you see them live on our MU Icons Throwback Thursday playlist.

Best Game Themes

From 8-bit to 80-piece orchestras, we’ve assembled some of the best game themes and soundtrack highlights.

Country Music Awards 2014

Celebrate country music’s biggest stars with this collection of the CMA nominees.

Marvin Gaye: MU Icon

Marvin Gaye, along with Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, was one of the true artistic geniuses at Motown. Vocalist, songwriter and producer, Gaye started with the sophisticated soul reminiscent of Sam Cooke and added daring jazz harmonies, deep funk grooves and a then rare fearlessness about airing the tumultuous, often contradictory, emotions that may have roots in his tough, often bizarre, upbringing. The LP What’s Going On is only one essential stop on a career, and life, that was ended too soon.

Hip-Hop New Releases

Trip Lee and and Logic provide some of the best tracks in this selection of new hip-hop but don’t skip out on the deeper cuts from Black Milk and Apollo Brown

Rob Zombie: Rewind

Rob Zombie is not only a multi-platinum musician but also an accomplished film director and screenwriter. His career took off with White Zombie in the ’90s and he soon reached international fame as a solo artist with the release of ‘Hellbilly Deluxe’ in the late 90’s. He’s now almost as well known for his film direction with House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and two Halloween remakes under his studded belt.

Welcome to the Laserium!

If you grew up in the ’70s or ‘80s, you know the myth and magic of the Laserium. These were places (usually local planetariums) that would dim the lights on weekend nights and create a world of laser-based entertainment, usually set to classic rock hits. We’re recreating that fun with these synth-dappled rock hits of yesteryear.
