What better praise can there be for a tribute band than to have your band's inspiration come to one of your shows? Former PBS show host Bill Nye swung by a performance of Colorado band Bill Nye and the Science Guys. He danced, sang, and did everything but explain the greenhouse effect.

Coldplay covered "Fight for Your Right to Party" at the Hollywood Bowl last week in honor of Adam Yauch's death. A nice sentiment, but what do we think of the aggressively Coldplay-stylized version, or the fact that the Beastie Boys publicly disowned the song and have long since stopped performing it live?

This epic meet-up went down in 1980, during Queen's tour promoting their new album The Game. I'm sure it made the part where Freddie croons "Mamaaaaaa..." during Bohemian Rhapsody that much more poignant.

Oh wait, the prequels weren't out yet. It was a simpler time.

Oh Alice, if your surprise rendition of Lady Gaga from your set at Bonnaroo proved anything, it's that you're a rebel through and through. Because there's nothing more shock rock than shocking your own fanbase with a cover of a radio-friendly hit.

This was allegedly sent to the producers of the FunFunFun Fest in Austin, where Slayer played earlier this year, and dear god we hope it's real. Because as great as Slayer is, knowing that they order "hand sanitizer" AND "hand satanizer" makes them ten times as great.
