Toronto band Fucked Up
was everywhere at the South By Southwest music festival this year--playing at official
showcases, even once on the street
, but often at unofficial massive advertising areas by, say, Pepsi
Some might think: How can a hardcore band justify their position in these marketing schemes? The answer, posted on the band blog by Mike the Guitarist, is simply titled: SXSW WHY? [more inside]
Three chords and four noble truths: on Philadelphia
's legendary Buddhist hardcore band

Do you remember Hüsker Dü?
No, not that Husker Du
, this one
. This site contains one of the most complete collections of guitar tabs
I have ever seen for any band. It might even exceed my previous favorite band site, Swervedriver.com
, if not in flash, then in content. The owner of the site seems to be more of a Grant Hart
fan than a Bob Mould
fan, as there are tabs for most of Hart's solo stuff and for Nova Mob
, but only a smattering of Mould tunes and none for Sugar
. There is also, suprisingly, a tab of the Posies'
excellent song (and loving tribute to the Huskers) "Grant Hart"
