The band explained why they’re releasing another album, ‘Return of The Dream Canteen’, on October 14th: “With time turned into an elastic waistband of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with.” Like ‘Unlimited Love’, ‘The Return of Dream Canteen’ is produced by Rick Rubin.
Tom Morello got accidentally tackled on Saturday during Rage Against the Machine’s show in Toronto . . . by his own security. They were in the middle of playing “Killing in the Name”, when a fan jumped up and started running across the stage. The security guard who was chasing him accidentally took Tom down instead. Zack de la Rocha paused the song after he saw what happened. He said, quote, “Whoever the [eff] gets wise like that, don’t try that [crap] again. Sorry, we’re cool, we love y’all, but don’t do that!” Tom was okay, though. He got right back up and started playing again.
Netflix is rolling out a new plan to help crack down on password-sharing. It’s going into effect next month in Argentina, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. They’re going to make you pay a fee to add another household to your account. The fee is going to be around $2 or $3 per additional home, and you can add up to three. Now I know what you’re thinking: What if you travel, and you want to use your Netflix at some other location? Well, you have a two-week window to use it without being charged . . . as long as you haven’t used it from that location before.
Melanie Rauscher, who competed on two versions of “Naked and Afraid” on Discovery Channel, has died unexpectedly at just 35 years old. Her obituary said she “passed away suddenly” on July 17, though further details about her death were not given. TMZ confirmed Melanie’s death was “mysterious,” reporting her body was found “near cans of dust cleaner” at a residence at which she had been dog-sitting for vacationing friends. There were no indications of foul play, there was no note, and there was no other drug paraphernalia. Melanie was on “Naked and Afraid” in 2013, returning for “Naked and Afraid XL” two years later. A celebration of Raushcer’s life is being planned for October in Philadelphia. Family and friends have asked that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to PTSD Foundation of America.

Athletes can be terrible actors, but some get it right. Here’s a list of actors who made great movie cameos: (in no particular order)
1. Dan Marino, “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” (1994)
2. Mike Tyson, “The Hangover” (2009)
3. Hines Ward, “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012)
4. Clay Matthews and the Green Bay Packers, “Pitch Perfect 2” (2015)
5. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, “Airplane!” (1980)
6. LeBron James, “Trainwreck” (2015)
7. Dale Earnhardt Jr., “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” (2006)
8. Brett Favre, “There’s Something About Mary” (1998)

10. NHL star Cam Neely, “Dumb and Dumber” (1994)
For some artists, having one of their songs parodied by “Weird Al” Yankovic is a peak career moment. In fact, in a 2012 interview, Yankovic revealed that after Michael Jackson blocked the release of his “Black or White” remake “Snack All Night,” he decided to take on the grunge superstars by spoofing their breakthrough hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” After his manager couldn’t get Kurt Cobain on the phone to get his blessing — which Al always tries to do, even though it’s legally unnecessary — he asked his friend to give him a hand. Check out a list of 10 acts who told Al to beat it.
There are basically two kinds of “Weird Al” parody subjects: ones who are honored and ones who wish they’d said yes. Beck is in the latter. Beck said that he regretted turning down Al’s “Loser” take, “Schmoozer.” “
Yankovic repeatedly tried to get Prince to sign off on comedic takes of “Purple Rain” (“Yellow Snow”) The Purple One, however, would not have it.
Beatles/Wings legend McCartney initially said yes to Al doing a take on his iconic 1973 James Bond theme ”Live and Let Die.” But when Yankovic revealed that the title he had in mind was “Chicken Pot Pie,” the vegetarian said no.
After Al got the OK to cover Blunt’s 2006 weeper “You’re Beautiful” — renamed “You’re Pitiful” — the singer’s bosses at Atlantic Records reportedly had second thoughts and nixed the deal
Known for their serious takes on, well, everything, U2 apparently were in no joking mood when Yankovic parodied their song “Numb” as “Green Eggs and Ham.”
Powter hasn’t really made much noise since breaking through in 2006 with his signature ballad “Bad Day.” That song made enough of an impression, though, that Al briefly considered releasing “Had A Bad Date.” Daniel said no. Then changed his mind a year later…and Weird Al said that the train had left the station.
After the 1995 hit do-over’s release, Coolio balked and said he never liked or approved the song. Al felt bad about seemingly offending the MC, but the two made nice in 2006 and the rapper eventually apologized for his original hot take.
Sometimes, Al’s parodies are both approved and rejected by the artists he’s honoring at the same time. That was the case with Gaga. When he asked her management for permission in 2011 to parody “Born This Way” as “Perform This Way,” Gaga’s team reportedly insisted that he finish writing and recording it before they said no. The song was released for free online, and when it emerged that Mother Monster actually loved his take — and that management had turned him down without asking her first — it was included as the lead track on his 2011 Alpocalypse album.
Led Zeppelin/Jimmy Page
There is a good reason you don’t often hear Led Zeppelin songs sampled or in commercials: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant just aren’t into it. According to Al, though Page, a fan, was OK with allowing some of stuff…he wouldn’t let Al used some of Zep’s music in one of his signature polka medleys.

A doctor’s exam will be conducted today in St. Louis to clarify left-hander Steven Matz’s condition a bit more. Matz, who was pitching strongly into the sixth inning for the Cardinals Saturday night, injured his left knee when his right foot slipped as he tried to pick up Joey Votto’s roller down the first-base line. An MRI taken Sunday revealed a torn medial collateral ligament. Surgery is a possibility. A considerable rest period to heal it could be another option. He was the winner as the Cardinals prevailed 6-3, allowing three hits and two runs, with seven strikeouts and a walk, in 5⅓ innings of work. But then the Cards lost Sunday with Miles Mikolas, getting the loss. Reds won 6-3 despite Goldschmidt hitting 2 yesterday. Ya can’t win if only one guy is your offense.
Speaking of that one guy, Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado and backup catcher Austin Romine, won’t be going to Toronto on Tuesday and Wednesday because they are unvaccinated — the players will not be paid while they are away and will be on the restricted list. To replace them the Cardinals brought up three players from Memphis.
Catcher Ivan Herrera, utility man Cory Spangenberg and outfielder Conner Capel. Only Spangenberg has not been with the first team this season.
Professional football is returning to The Dome at America’s Center.
Sunday, during an XFL event held in Arlington, Texas, and streamed on YouTube, the league announced its eight host cities and venues for the upcoming season, which is scheduled to kick off on Feb. 18, 2023.
In addition to a St. Louis squad, the eight-team league will feature three franchises in Texas — Arlington, Houston and San Antonio — as well as ones in Orlando, Florida; Las Vegas; Seattle and Washington, D.C.
There was no mention of team nicknames Sunday, so it was not known if the BattleHawks moniker will be revived for the local club. That’s what it was called for the last version of the XFL, in 2020.
The St. Louis franchise will be led by head coach Anthony Becht, who spent 11 seasons as an NFL tight end. The Pennsylvania native played his college ball at West Virginia and was selected in the first round of the 2000 NFL draft by the New York Jets. Jonathan Hayes, who was the BattleHawks’ coach, is offensive coordinator for Arlington. Fans interested in season tickets can go to XFL.com/tickets.
OH this is my favorite: The Boston Red Sox were red with embarrassment on Friday night. Not only did they get beaten 28 to 5, the most runs scored against them in the history of Fenway Park, but four of the runs were because Red Sox center fielder Jarren Duran lost track of a routine pop fly. As he moved in, it bounced far behind him. Here’s the call. The ball was hit by Raimel Tapia, who even cringed after the hit, thinking it was an easy out. So he got a slow start, but then turned on the heat to beat the throw to the plate.
