Radiohead fans are awesome (I know because I’m one of them). Anyway, some fans gathered to create a video of the band’s New York concert, which took place a few years ago (maybe you remember). You can see the full concert below. Also, Metallica cut ties with Warner Brothers and announced their own new record label. And, Forbes named Dr. Dre the top earning musician of the year. All that and more below.

This week, while promoting his new line of headphones, 50 Cent told a French press outlet that Dr. Dre‘s often-delayed album Detox might not be an album after all. He’s thinking it’s just an EP with only a few songs on it. Also, tickets for The Rolling Stones‘ London shows went on sale this morning and sold out in seven minutes. And The Local Natives announced the release date of their forthcoming record Hummingbird. All that and more below.

50 Cent’s fifth record is finally set for release, as the long gestating album has just been given a release date of November 13th. Following in the footsteps of his other, equally subtle album titles—Get Rich or Die Tryin’, The Massacre, Curtis, and Before I Self Destruct—the new album is called Street King Immortal. Get it? It’s because he’s badass, you guys.

One of the biggest splashes made over the past two weekends of the 2012 Coachella music festival was the appearance of the Tupac Shakur hologram, which allowed Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg to perform with the deceased rapper. This lead to rampant speculation that Tupac would be going on tour, something that Dr. Dre has quickly denied… then said “we’ll see.”

Coachella is a time and place for all sorts of desert wackiness to go down—especially with Snoop Dogg in attendance (just check out his smoke-able book that was released at the fest). That said, one moment during the headlining Dr. Dre and Snoop performance on Sunday night crossed them realm from wacky and dovetailed into just plain strange, if not tacky and/or kind of offensive.

Well, live music fans, that time of year has come around again—the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced its 2012 lineup.

Check out the complete lineup below and let us know: does this rock, or is the lineup a bit of a letdown?

Some might scoff at the idea of an upper-class white woman penning the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, but not me—upon hearing the news that Andrea Berloff will be writing the script to the film about the seminal gangsta rap outfit, I prefer to save my scoff-ery not for Berloff’s race (‘cause I’m advanced like that), but for the fact that her one major scriptwriting credit is for the terrible, terrible Hallmark-Card-in-film-form World Trade Center, the hyper-sentimental, borderline-insulting Oliver Stone film.

Last Sunday night’s match-up at Boston’s Fenway Park between hometown heroes the Red Sox and bitter rivals the New York Yankees featured a musical invasion of sorts, with appearances by Dr. Dre, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, and God… er, Neil Diamond (don’t even make a joke—I will gladly knife-fight anyone who makes fun of the Diamond), with both Tyler and Diamond turning in musical performances of, let’s say, ‘varying’ quality.
Live Daily reports that Dr. Dre appeared pre-show to hawk a new set of Red Sox-themed headphones, called “Beats By Dre,” while Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine talked up Dre’s new single with Jay-Z, “Under Pressure.”
