Welcome, rocker nation, to a brand new episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.
This week’s panel features Consequence of Sound Associate Editor Sasha Geffen, comedian Sam Norton, and Vocalo.org radio host Jill Hopkins. Among the topics discussed are Killer Mike’s interest in running for Georgia House of Representatives and what other artists would make good elected officials. We also debate whether Dave Grohl performing with a broken leg is the ultimate rock star moment, and we select campaign songs for Donald Trump’s presidential run (since Neil Young won’t let him use “Rockin’ in the Free World”).
Also, comedian Kevin Kellam hits the streets of Chicago to talk to people about concert etiquette, and we bring you a sneak peek at our upcoming interview with Mad Max: Fury Road composer Junkie XL.
