Kurt Cobain killed himself 18 years ago today. But cheer up! Even Cobain wasn't always a total downer.

Sonic Youth: Worse than Rebecca Black? Bested by the two-man Black Keys? Or is a smug 13-year-old boxed in by his fetish for chords and intonation?

It's always a bad idea when a metal band messes with Prague rock. Yesterday, Czech authorities arrested Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe and charged him with manslaughter shortly before the band's scheduled show at the Prague Hard Rock Cafe.

The charges refer to an incident from a 2010 show at the Club Aberton in Prague, when a fan bum-rushed the stage and sustained injuries to his head after a fight with Blythe. Who started the fight? Was the fan just trying to give Blythe a hug? Has Blythe entered into an unholy covenant with Satan contingent on sacrificing a fan every two years? Details are still forthcoming.

[NME]

Update: The band's publicist is saying that the fan in question tried to rush the stage twice before security pulled him back. The third time, Blythe pushed him back into the audience, where he hit his head (thanks, Darkst!)
