MU_RoadrunnerCustomChannel_US_FB-WallIn the ever-changing ebb and flow of the music industry, you often have to scream and shout to shift attention to your band, let alone an entire roster. There are few record labels that define entire genres of music, widely trusted for both their catalog and new artists, but on the short list is definitely Roadrunner Records. The hard rock powerhouse recently released a solid slate of albums to kick off 2013, including Killswitch Engage, Stone Sour and Airbourne and we’re celebrating with a collection of tracks from those albums and them and the rest of the catalog in the Roadrunner Records Channel. Find it now in the premium channels section of the Music Unlimited service.

Founded in 1980 as a way to import North American albums into Europe, they soon expanded into offices across the globe. They made a huge impact on 80’s metal, including being credited for pivotal albums from King Diamond, Life of Agony, Obituary, Sepultura, Machine Head and Type O Negative. In recent years they’ve broadened their genre horizons, including releases from Young the Giant, Korn and Nickelback; alongside the new class of metal like The Devil Wears Prada and Kvelertak.

We’ll dive more into their catalog in tomorrow’s #ThrowbackThursday, but for now sit back and enjoy the channel!

It’s going to take a lot more than a group of double-crossing hoodlums to stop Parker, played by ultimate tough man Jason Statham, from being the top movie purchased this week on the Video Unlimited service. It’s easy to say this achievement was one man’s doing, but we can’t overlook the star power Jennifer Lopez brings to the movie in her leading lady role.
