Johnny Knoxville And The 'Jackass' Crew Take Over This Week's 'Late Night Lineup'

11 October 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

The best thing about watching coverage of the baseball playoffs on TBS has nothing to do with the actual broadcasts of the games, as TBS has managed to answer the question, "Can anybody show baseball worse than Fox and Espn combined?" No, the highlight comes during commercial breaks whenever promos for "Conan" come up. They have all been stellar, especially all of the blimp-related gags ("Actually, it's a dirigible"). The entire late night universe is waiting for O'Brien's return, as the numbers across the board have been way, way down since his exit earlier this year. Will Conan's comeback spark a new wave of competition among the venerable after-hours talk show hosts? Here's hoping.

In the meantime, the shows grind on, with a number of sure-fire highlights hitting your television screens this week. "The Late Show with David Letterman" features a visit from Matt Damon (Tuesday, October 12), one of the »

Kanye West's Tag-Team With Bon Iver Inspires A Crossover Fantasy List

16 August 2010 11:30 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Thanks to Jay-z and Beyoncé repping for Grizzly Bear and hanging out at Coachella to see some Pitchfork-approved acts, indie rock and hip-hop have been having a very public love affair lately. Sometimes it's a late night hook-up that is walk-of-shame worthy in the morning (paging Weezer and Lil Wayne) and other times it's so seamless you wonder why nobody thought of it before. Kid Cudi rolled out the carpe for Ratatat and Mgmt on his studio debut, Ghostface Killah has admitted to loving Vampire Weekend and the Black Keys chopped it up with everyone from Mos Def to RZA and Raekwon on the Blakroc album.

In the most recent example, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon revealed that he spent a couple days earlier this year in Hawaii with Kanye West, laying down some of his patented hushed, pastoral vocals for 10 songs that might appear on West's upcoming CD. That »

Tila Tequila's Juggalo Disaster Joins The List Of Wildest Stage Attacks

16 August 2010 9:00 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

This past weekend played host to one of the biggest underground music festivals of the year. No, not Outside Lands in San Francisco (which saw Kings of Leon, the Strokes, Phoenix, My Morning Jacket and a handful of surviving members of the Grateful Dead overcome frosty temperatures in Golden Gate Park), but rather the annual Gathering of the Juggalos. The festival, hosted and organized by Insane Clown Posse and featuring most of the artists on the roster of their record label, extended over four days and also sported a number of hip-hop legends, rides, games, seminars and wrestling. But the big headline to come out of the weekend was the unfortunate crowd reaction to Tila Tequila. Making her hip-hop debut on "Ladies Night," Tequila was pelted with rocks, various pieces of garbage and human excrement while fans badgered her to take her top off (and then when she finally did, »

Weezer's 'Hurley' Album Inspires These Other 'Lost' Music Mash-Ups

10 August 2010 9:30 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

"Lost" and Weezer supporters may not have been the most natural bed fellows in the past, but the two sets of fans certainly have something in common now — "Hurley," Weezer's upcoming album. With a picture of actor Jorge Garcia's face plastered on the album cover, the new Weezer album has nothing to do with "Lost" other than the name and likeness of the unlucky lottery winner.

As both a music lover and a big "Lost" fan — yes, still — I started thinking about some other musicians who could find inspiration in the "Lost" mythology for their next album. After the jump, check out some suggestions for "Lost"-inspired albums!

"Boone," by Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has won the world over thanks to his memorable hair and boyish good looks. In fact, he almost looks like a younger version of Ian Somerhalder, the "Vampire Diaries" star who briefly appeared on "Lost" as the ill-fated Boone Carlyle. »

My Morning Jacket Recording New Album

9 August 2010 6:55 AM, PDT | | See recent PasteMagazine news »

The follow-up to My Morning Jacket’s 2008 release, Evil Urges, is currently being recorded at a church in the band’s hometown of Louisville, Ky. Frontman Jim James recently told Rolling Stone he’s “really excited” about the band’s sixth studio effort. “It’s all live, so the vibe is really, really good, really wholesome,” he says. "There’s something about it. We’ve done stuff mostly live but then you do some overdubs, some vocals, or whatever. But we’re trying to do everything other than maybe strings live. There’s just something old and dirty about it.” »

Band Of Horses Stand On The Verge In Cincinnati

14 July 2010 2:30 PM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

I've been lucky over the years to catch early, small club shows by the likes of the Smashing Pumpkins, Lenny Kravitz, Beck, the Verve, Radiohead, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Garbage, the Strokes, the Vines, Kings of Leon, Pearl Jam and countless others.

The thing about those shows is that you can never know in the moment that what you're seeing is a band on the verge, because at the time it just feels like you've witnessed an awesome show. And then the next thing you know the band you thought only you and a handful of other friends were into about is playing the local amphitheater or showing up on a "Twilight" soundtrack.

I say this because I saw one of those shows Tuesday night (July 13) right here in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. It was the third time in the past two years that I've seen South Carolina's Band of Horses, »

Conor Oberst Reunites Desaparacidos for Nebraska Concert for Equality

7 July 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | | See recent PasteMagazine news »

For good or for ill, Arizona’s controversial anti-illegal immigration bill Sb 1070 has gotten a lot of attention from musicians around the country—from the high-profile Chuck D and Rage Against The Machine to more modestly well-known/Paste cover stars like Conor Oberst and My Morning Jacket. Some artists are attempting to raise awareness by canceling tour dates within Arizona in boycott. In a recent letter to promoter Charlie Levy (in response to Levy’s open letter in The Arizona Republic), Oberst mentioned a similar bill in small-town Nebraska, his home state. »

Various Artists: Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine

25 June 2010 2:30 AM, PDT | | See recent PasteMagazine news »

At last, the tribute he deserves The songs of dirt-road troubador John Prine are malleable—simple, elegiac tales of people living out simple lives. They’re easy tunes to cover, which means this smartly-assembled tribute album is long overdue. It draws from the legion of neo-folk acolytes Prine has helped shuffle into the spotlight, with the Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket and the Drive-By Truckers, among others, scribbling the margins of his well-thumbed volumes in their own shorthand. Justin Vernon of Bon Iver welcomes “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)” into his misty, distant world, and Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band »

Janelle Monae And 'Sex And The City 2' Rule The 'Late Night Lineup'

24 May 2010 7:30 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Memorial Day is this weekend, which means the unofficial start of summer is finally here. It's time for barbecues, road trips, poolside naps, baseball games and paying slightly less attention at work than normal. It also means that the late night shows will be disappearing more frequently, ducking into reruns so the various writing, production and performance staffs can enjoy their summer vacations without having to worry about making up gags about Robert Pattinson and the coming midterm elections. Take David Letterman's show, which will only have three new episodes this week so everybody can stretch Memorial Day into an extra-long weekend. Still, he'll welcome "American Idol" reject Casey James on Monday (May 24) and Sarah Jessica Parker and the Black Keys (not together, sadly) on Tuesday (May 25). (It should be duly noted that the women from "Sex and the City 2" are literally going to be everywhere this week, »

The Roots tap Jim James, John Legend, Joanna Newsom sample for 'How I Got Over'

23 April 2010 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Roots may have a full time gig as the house band on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," but they're not so busy that they haven't been working on a new effort. The veteran hip-hop crew have tapped eclectic guests for its forthcoming "How I Got Over," including John Legend and Jim James of My Morning Jacket. They'll be sampling singer-songwriter/harpist Joanna Newsom's "The Book of Right-On" in one jam. The album -- which has actually been in the works for longer than just the year The Roots have been on TV -- has no release date yet, though the band »

Slash's Label Leads The List Of Silly Vanity Imprint Names

14 April 2010 8:10 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

After years of toiling in some wildly successful rock bands (most notably Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver), Slash has finally made his way into the center of the spotlight with his first true solo album. It just debuted in third place on the Billboard album chart, moving over 60,000 copies in its first week on the strength of the behatted guitarist's non-stop promotion and the single "By the Sword" (a team-up with Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale.

Slash is actually a tremendous collection of hard rock songs that center around the axe man's signature chunky, swirling riffs. His backing band features all of the original members of Guns N' Roses (Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler — only Axl Rose is absent). In Santana style, each track has a guest vocalist, some of which work really well (Stockdale, Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl) while others stumble a bit (Fergie, Myles Kennedy). On balance, »
