This is our 100th post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a quick thank you to everyone who has supported this blog!!! 100 posts would not have been possible without the continued support of the greatest listeners in the world visiting it every day. Let your friends know this is the #1 place for music news and the occasional video of a fat guy dancing in a bikini...

Now to the headlines...

Bruce Springsteen
's standout track, "Girls In Their Summer Clothes," from last year's Magic album, snagged two Grammy nominations. In the Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance category, he'll battle it out against Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Eddie Vedder, and John Mayer. For the Best Rock Song Grammy, "The Boss" is up against newer bands Radiohead, Coldplay, Death Cab For Cutie, and Kings Of Leon.

At the time of its release, many fans and critics commented on the fact that the track -- and several others -- harkened back to Springsteen's River-era pop sound. Springsteen himself has commented that the tunes on Magic -- and the upcoming Working On A Dream album -- have a lighter, more power-pop approach to them.
Voters for the 2009 Grammy's are facing a tough decision with two of rock's best documentaries going head-to-head in the Best Long Form Music Video. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers' four hour Peter Bogdonavich documentary Runnin' Down A Dream is up against the critically acclaimed multidisc set Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who.

Also up for the award is John Mayer's Where The Light Is: Live In Los Angeles, and Rihanna's Good Girl Gone Bad Live. The Grammy Awards ceremony will be held February 8th, 2009, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The presentation will be broadcast live on CBS-TV.
James Taylor's recording of Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman" from his new Covers album has been nominated for the Grammy for best pop male vocal performance. Taylor faces some stiff competition against Paul McCartney, who's also vying for the prize with the live version of his autobiographical songs "That Was Me" which was recorded at L.A.'s Amoeba Records last year.
