Rearview: The Week in Review (7/19/08-7/25/08)
Here's a guide to all the great content you might have missed this week on Backbeat Online while you were busy shaking your head in disgust and amazement at the announcement that mall-punk heroes My Chemical Romance will be covering a Bob Dylan song for the Watchmen soundtrack...
There was also a little thing called Mile High Music Fest, an event so big we had to give it its own wrap-up, to keep track of everything. Find that here.
We would have had even more reviews, but Dizzee Rascal was a no-show at Cervantes'. Our commenters had a few things to say about that.
We chuckled with glee over our scoop of Rolling Stone. They get all their best ideas from us.
We had an exclusive -- and extensive -- Q&A session with Electric Skychurch.
Mile High Makeout confronted the inexorable march of time. It's okay, you don't get older, you get better.
We made the most of our limited time on this earth with another batch of 45 Second Reviews.
John Common shared his personal anti-dance manifesto, which only made us want to see him dance even more.
We summarized the week's big happenings in the hip-hop world with the Friday Rap-Up and found out 50 Cent is pissed at Taco Bell. Me too, that place always makes me sick.
We pondered the Second Coming, festival style, with a column on the impending Heaven Fest. I hope the rapture doesn't come this weekend, I still have some things left on my to-do list. -- Cory Casciato
