6 years ago today Dimebag Darrell was gunned down while performing with Damage Plan. He was best known for his guitar work with Pantera. I don’t listen to much Pantera nowadays but I still listen to “Walk” whenever I need to get psyched up:

John Lennon was also killed 30 years ago today but you already knew that.

AV Club has posted its list of the best music of 2010.

Stereogum has up its list of the top 50 albums of the year.

So Much Silence has a post about the demo of “The Mystery Zone” by Spoon.

Beastie Boys are putting out a sequel to their classic video and it sounds awesome. Read about it on Pitchfork.

Ra Ra Riot played Letterman the other night, check it out on COS.
