Headlines! Jay-Z, Cobain in 'Guitar Hero' and more

Another crazy day here in the newsroom. Look for some stuff coming on the Beatles next week.

Wait, haven't you heard? Yeah, the boys from Liverpool are releasing remastered versions of all of their albums. I'm excited to pick up a few of them, for sure. Vinyl versions will becoming next year.

Anyway.... headlines!

• 311 (above) announced a fall/winter tour today, including a Nov. 14 show at the Mid-America Center. Tickets on sale Sept. 19.

• Anyone else excited for the new Jay-Z album, "The Blueprint 3?" I am. If you don't want to wait until it drops next week, MTV is streaming it.

• Paste Magazine is asking for readers' top films of the decade. What are yours?

• Remember that Kurt Cobain "Guitar Hero" avatar that I mentioned? The folks at Spin think it does some weird stuff that Kurt would have never done. Would Kurt have wailed on a Bon Jovi song? Probably not.

• Say Anything has a new single and video. I kinda like it. But it's catchy enough that I'll probably hate it in a few months when I hear it on the radio a few hundred times.

• Jack White is doing some stuff with Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

• The Pains of Being Pure At Heart (in town Sept. 10, look for my interview the same day) have a remixed version of "Higher Than The Stars" on the band's new EP. Check it out.
