We wanted to start working with people and not have people tell us who we should be working with based on what the financial turnout was going to be, or what the streaming numbers would end up being, or what the radio plays would end up being. It was: ‘Let’s make art that we’re passionate about,’ because eventually it’s going to translate. Is this interest remix not displaying correctly? | View it in your browser.

The NEW YORK TIMES' THOMAS ROGERS has now come through, sort of, with this sparklingly clean account of how bands with arena-size budgets do it. Pro tip: Don't get your nose too close to SLIPKNOT's coveralls. Also, be careful when you're outsourcing JANET JACKSON's dry cleaning.

His score for BLACKKKLANSMAN is up against NICHOLAS BRITELL (IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK), LUDWIG GÖRANSSON (BLACK PANTHER), ALEXANDRE DESPLAT (ISLE OF DOGS) and MARC SHAIMAN (MARY POPPINS RETURNS). The winner for BEST ORIGINAL SONG will be "SHALLOW" or my name is BOB LEFSETZ.

A nearly unhittable cutter wasn't the only weapon in NEW YORK YANKEES relief pitcher MARIANO RIVERA's arsenal during his Hall of Fame career. There was also an intimidating walk-on song, METALLICA's "ENTER SANDMAN," which soundtracked every trip Rivera took to the YANKEE STADIUM mound from 1999 to 2013. But on Tuesday, when he became the first player unanimously voted into the Hall of Fame, Rivera told MLB NETWORK he's never been to a Metallica show and "as a Christian, with all due respect to Metallica, I don’t listen to that kind of music." Except for maybe that one time. His one-time teammate and fellow Hall of Famer RANDY JOHNSON remains the most metal baseball player ever...
