    Ahh, the classics. Halloween and garage-rock go together like Monoman and getting old and fat. The Mummies, a bunch of lo-fried fratrockerz wrapped in toilet paper, are the band Rob Zombie always wanted to be -- or at least wanted to be for like three weeks in the '90s when Geffen made the mistake of giving him own label, remember that? -- and some of you probably haven't seen the video for "Monster Mash," nor will you ever need to again, but the dude playing drums with the fibulas and the grim reaper on bass is pretty crucial.

    Deja vu all over again: Who at Garden


    Petra: keeping her mouth shut.

    Not like we can afford satellite radio or anything, but thanks to Sirius's freebie campaign we heard Pete Townshend walk off the Howard Stern show this morning in a huff, after Robin made mention of those old child-porn charges (like we're supposed to forget about 'em just because he was acquitted

    Quick, before Google takes them down: it's the first annual (and maybe the last) OTD Halloween video countdown. We're posting two a day through October 31. Suggestions welcome in the comments. Today: Slayer and Elvira circa 1988; Wu-Tang/Prince Paul horror-rap collabo circa early-'90s:

    Broken Social Scene covered Dinosaur Jr. at their semi-secret Brandeis U show last week. Bradley's was there and upped the whole set, then pointed us at some YouTube links:

    2. Boston blogger Rbally is packing it in -- which is bad news for all of us who've come to rely on him for our torrent-length live-show downloading.

    You have probably heard by now about the 45-minute long track that James Murphy a/k/a LCD Soundsystem did for Nike as an iTunes-only download intended for people who run (presumably, for people who run in Nike sneakers). We were very surprised about this because we've seen James Murphys tummy and we never would have guessed him for a runner, let alone a .

    Sooooooo . . . we'll try this again. Last time we posted an unreleased Snowleopards song, the Boston Music Awards named it song of the year or something. We're back with another, and it's rock and fucking roll.

    IF YOU GO:
