Great news it is. Got this from Rolling Stone. The King ACDC is finally reclaim acdc.com from porn site. You can now get all the news from the greatest rock band in the world through its name rather than acdcrocks.com (its old official site).
The Internet domain for ACDC.com was held for years by a company specializing in porn, so when new fans and the clueless sought out tour dates or album info, they ended up with a screen full of NSFW imagery and other dirty deeds done for a monthly credit card subscription. Thankfully, the band’s management has finally claimed the domain name back after years of, frankly, not caring.
If you are planning to name a band, please make sure that a cool domain for your band is available. Take it at least the .com and the .net because it’s cheap to buy domain these days. Search for it and get some help if needed by top domain site registrar by simply adding domain search engine like godaddy.com and domainsbot.com search to your Firefox search. Don’t let the bastard get your band’s domain name.
For those about to domain name, we salute ya.
A U2 tower in Ireland is reality:
Internationally renowned British architect Norman Foster was today announced as the visionary behind Ireland’s first skyscraper – the U2 Tower.
The €200m scheme, which will soar 120 metres over Dublin’s docklands, will house the iconic rock band’s egg-shaped recording studio at its peak.
It was commissioned by Geranger Ltd, a consortium including property developers Ballymore and U2 members Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jnr and Adam Clayton.
The project will start in 2008 and it’s expected to be finished at 2011.
At the recording of Last Call With Carson Daly on Oct. 10, Morrissey will sing “All You Need Is Me” and “That’s How People Grow Up.” The first song will be broadcast on Oct. 12, and the second song will be broadcast at a later date.
The show is already at the internet, thanks to YouTube. And, as always, the girls got crazy:

Got this from the NME:
Music fans across the world have joined efforts to fire the Sex Pistols’ ‘God Save The Queen’ back into the UK singles chart.
Although only music buyers in Britain can count towards sales for Sunday’s (October 14) chart, fans around the globe have backed the campaign to get the record as close to Number One as possible.
According to mid-week chart figures, the punk anthem is in the Top 40, but a download push over the next two days could see it rise up towards the Top Ten, and possibly even higher.
I will not buy Sex Pistols anymore but i think they will make it at least to number 10. I’ll bet $10 for this, anyone?
This is the 100th post in Rockstar Pundit so i feel to celebrate it with Pink Floyd which you can’t disagree with.
