Foo Fighters: With rock icon, Dave Grohl, as lead singer and guitarist, The Foo Fighters released their first album in 1995 making fans say "Nirvana who?"

Foo Fighters tour dates have been scheduled, and fans won't want to miss the chance to catch these rockers live in their area!

The band's self titled debut was an instant hit. However, it was their sophomore set The Colour and the Shape that established the post-grunge era of rock. The album features rock classics such as "Everlong" and "Hero," which to this day are mainstays on rock radio. The album was certified double-platinum and it remains their highest selling album to date. The Foo Fighters released several more critically and commercially acclaimed albums including There is Nothing Left to Lose (2001) and One by One (2002), which featured the hard rock hit "One By One." The Foo Fighters toured extensively for these albums, their concert schedule sending them to world renowned international venues including a sold out date at London's famed O2 arena.

In 2005, Foo Fighters tour dates were booked as co-headliners with Weezer for the aptly titled "Foozer Tour." They released their fifth album, In Your Honor, in 2006 and announced a series of acoustic Foo Fighters tour dates for their concert schedule that summer. The Foo Fighters tour dates in Los Angeles in 2006 were recorded for their first live CD, Skin and Bones, and featured a live DVD of the band's performance.

Five platinum records and a decade of touring later, the band keeps on recording new material and the Foo Fighters concert schedule remains as ambitious as when the bandmates were in their twenties. They released their sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007, which featured the hit rock anthem, "The Pretender." Foo Fighters tour dates were booked internationally, with the tour culminating in a performance at the Virgin Festival in Canada in 2008. The following year, the band released their Greatest Hits album which featured two new songs and the fifteen top ten rock hits they'd accumulated throughout the years. Now, the Foo Fighters are back with the #1 single, "Rope," a worldwide tour, and a new album, Wasting Light.

Garbage: Shirley Manson brought sexy, angry, and intense vocals while rock wizard, Butch Vig, brought innovative production to create the iconic alt-rock group - Garbage. After fifteen years, and only four albums, the infrequency with which they put out records means only that their material is anything but garbage. With rumors of a 2011 tour, Garbage recently announced that they are in the studio working on their fifth album with hopes to hit the touring circuit.

Butch Vig is the rock genius behind the production board of several legendary rock albums. Prior to Garbage's success, Vig produced Nirvana's Nevermind, Sonic Youth's Dirty, and the Smashing Pumpkins albums Siamese Dream and Gish, just to name a few. Add on sultry rocker Shirley Manson and guitarists Duke Erikson and Steve Marker, and Garbage was born. Their self-titled debut blew away fans and critics alike around the world. The singles "Stupid Girl" and "I'm Only Happy When it Rains" catapulted sales of the album to double-Platinum status and Garbage tour dates were scheduled internationally. They were nominated for the Best New Artist Award at the 1997 Grammy's, and were suddenly the biggest alt-rock band to hit the mainstream.

They returned in 1997 following the Garbage World Tour to record Version 2.0, which featured a more electronic vibe, but stayed true to their alt-rock heritage. The album was a worldwide success when it was released in 1998 and the Garbage Version 2.0 Tour lasted throughout 1999. They were nominated for two more Grammy's, embarked on a European tour, and were then asked to perform the theme song for a Bond film. An Australian Garbage tour ensued with Alanis Morisette and the band hit the studio to record, Beautiful Garbage. it was regarded by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the "Top Ten Albums of the Year" and sold over a million copies. Garbage tour dates were scheduled on the third leg of U2's Elevation Tour. Following their supporting stint, Garbage toured on the worldwide Beautiful Garbage Tour, their most extensive tour yet.

After an exhaustive tour schedule and a break, Garbage reunited to record Bleed Like Me which was released in 2003. They embarked on the embattled Bleed Like Me Tour, which saw several tour dates cancelled due to various complications including Manson's vocal chord injury and rising tensions. Garbage concluded the Bleed Like Me Tour in Australia in 2005 and announced an extended hiatus. The members worked on separate projects, Vig went back to producing and won a Grammy for Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown in 2010, and then announced that they were regrouping for a new album. The album is expected out in late 2011 and an accompanying tour is being planned.

Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny is the soundtrack to the upcoming New Line Cinema comedy, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. The movie, an epic musical adventure that follows The D on their quest to obtain the Pick and become The Greatest Band on Earth. The film arrives in theaters on November 17th.

The album, produced by the Dust Brothers' John King (Beck) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Pete Yorn, A Perfect Circle) and featuring guest appearances by Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass) and John Konesky (guitar), spotlights fifteen Tenacious D songs and dialogue highlights from the movie. Among the record's many standout tracks are "Classico," fan favorite "History," and "Kickapoo," a song written specifically for the film and guest-starring Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Meatloaf and legendary metal singer Ronnie James Dio. The latter appears in the film's opening scene, in which a ten-year old Black (played by Troy Gentile) serenades his ultra-conservative, very religious family with a rocking rendition of "Kickapoo," a song whose lyrics would make a sailor blush. When his father (Meat Loaf), who believes rock and roll is the devil's work, unleashes his belt and shows him no mercy, tearing down all of his beloved rock posters, the young Jack Black implores Dio, one of his rock gods, for guidance. Dio reassures him that he is on the right path but must leave his stifling home environment and go to Hollywood to "find the secrets of his art." The album is led by first single "POD" and its companion video, which is currently in heavy rotation/Big 10 on MTV. T he clip was directed by Liam Lynch (Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic), who also directed the film and shared writing credits with Black and Gass.
