WWE Hall of Fame 2017

   It's finally here. Wrestlemania weekend. A very exciting time. To start off Wrestlemania weekend, I thought I would give my thoughts on the class of 2017 for the Hall of Fame tonight. I also want to share my favorite Hall of Fame moment.

To start off, I want to talk about the biggest surprise going into the Hall of Fame. Kurt Angle. Kurt Angle is a gold medalist who had a very successful WWE career, but stepped away from the company for 11 years. No one knew what happened, or if he was coming back. (If you want to know why he stepped away, and you have the WWE Network, then check out his interview with Corey Graves.) Anyway, when they were going to announce the first inductee into the Hall of Fame, Kurt Angle was the last person I expected. I just didn't know if he was going to do anything with WWE anymore, because he was in TNA.
But, I'm glad he's going into the Hall of Fame. It's very well deserved.

The next inductee I got excited for was DDP. This is a man who I respect a lot, not just for wrestling but also because of the type of human being he is. DDP saved Jake the Snake and Scott Hall from dying, and helped put them into shape. (Check out the Resurrection of Jake the Snake. Warning: it will make you laugh, cry, yell, and cry some more. But it's a good documentary.) So also well deserved. Another surprise is the fact that Eric Bischoff is inducting him. Yes, you read that correctly. Could this mean Bischoff might do something with WWE? Maybe even be the new RAW GM? Who knows. Guess we'll wait and see. But I'm excited nonetheless.

The other inductees include:
Beth Phoenix
Teddy Long
The Rock N Roll Express
Rick Rude
Erie LeGrand (For the warrior award)

Now to end this, I am going to share my favorite moment from the Hall of Fame. Mick Foley was inducted in the class of 2013. In his speech, he talked about how he never beat Chris Jericho. So during his speech, Jericho(who was in the front row) got up on the stage and lied down. So Foley dropped an elbow on Jericho, and then CM Punk goes on stage and counts 1,2,3. It was a great moment.
Here's the link to the video:

Hope you guys enjoyed this, and I hope you enjoy the Hall of Fame on the WWE Network. If you do miss it, USA will be showing a 1 hr version after Raw.
Thanks for reading guys.

Why I think Robby J Fonts is perfect for Stuck Mojo

    So today I want to discuss why I think Robby J is the perfect front man for Stuck Mojo. Now before I start, I just want you to know that this is just my opinion. I'm not going to tell you that you have to like him, because you don't. You have the right to like him or hate him. I was just want to give my reasons as to why I think he is perfect in Stuck Mojo.

To start; Robby grew up listening to Stuck Mojo. (If you don't believe me, you can check out my interview with him, right here on my blog. The title is From fan to front man.) Because of this, he knows what Stuck Mojo is all about. So he has knowledge of what Stuck Mojo songs should sound like. It's not like Rich Ward just plucked a random kid off the street. He knew exactly what he was doing when he picked Robby.

Another thing; Robby has passion and energy. A perfect example of this is in Stuck Mojo's music video for Rape Whistle. You can check it out on their YouTube channel. It's a pretty sweet video. Anyway, if you watch Robby perform, you can see the passion in his performance. From the way he moves about the stage like a crazy man, to the way he can grab the attention of the crowd. Now, I've never seen him perform in person(though I hope to some day), I have done some research on YouTube. A perfect example of his performance is from when Stuck Mojo played at Brutal Assault last year.

The last thing I want to touch on, to go along with his passion, is his passion for writing and making music. He works really hard because he cares about the music his makes. In the interview I did with him, he talked about working with Rich Ward in the studio and how they got along. I also asked him about future projects, and he talked about doing some solo stuff since Rich is in Fozzy. So you can tell he is really passionate, cause he doesn't seem like a slacker. He's a hardworking, passionate, intelligent guy.

So these are some reasons as to why I think Robby J is perfect for Stuck Mojo. He gives the music this energy that they really needed, and I think he is going to continue doing great in the future. For those of you who don't like him, I respect your opinion, but I hope that maybe this will make you respect Robby a little bit. He is working hard and doing well in Stuck Mojo. But again, I'm not trying to make you like him.

Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

Wrestlemania 33 thoughts

    So in honor of Wrestlemania week; I've decided to share my Wrestelemania thoughts. Most of my thoughts aren't great, and what I mean is, I have nothing good to say about Wrestlemania. Except for one thing. I will say that I am looking forward to the US championship match between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens. Honestly, out of all the matches on the card, this is the one I'm looking forward to the most. Now on to the rest.

I was really looking forward to the Seth Rollins, Triple H match. Mostly because I wanted this match so bad last year, but it didn't happen because Seth was injured. When Seth got injured again, I was a little upset. Mostly because I feel that caused WWE to come up with bad booking. It wasn't Seth's fault, cause injuries happen. But I feel that the story and build up would have been better, had the injury not happened. I know officials were scrambling, trying to come up with ideas. Which is why it's not as great as it could be, but it's not bad either. The match might still turn out great, hopefully.

Another big match I want to talk about is Undertaker's match against Roman Reigns. I'm calling this match big because I feel that any match with the Undertaker is big. I could care less about Roman Reigns. Now the build up to this to me is meh. Like, they're trying to make Roman look strong and act so tough. Do they really think we're buying this crap? Is it me, or did they just not have any good ideas with this match? Or any on the card for that matter.

I just have a feeling that this Wrestlemania isn't going to be as great as it could be. I could be wrong, and I hope I am. But I have a bad feeling.
Honestly, the things I'm looking forward to are the Hall of Fame, and NXT Takeover Orlando. I will be doing separate posts for those two events, so I can go a little in depth with each one. So keep an eye out for that.
I will also be doing a Wrestlemania after thought. I will be watching the whole pay per view, so I'll give you my thoughts and overall.

Hope you guys enjoyed my thoughts. If you want to share your Wrestlemania thoughts with me, or even discuss the ones I gave, you can leave a comment or send me a tweet @MJWesney.
Thanks for reading guys. Hope you enjoy Wrestlemania week.

Blood Divisions "Cardinal One" (featuring Chris Jericho)

    Hey guys.
    So my recommendation today is the album "Cardinal One" by Blood Divisions. From my understanding, Blood Divisions is a side project by Chris Jericho. Now, if you love Jericho's vocals from Fozzy and you also love heavy music, then this album is for you.
These songs are heavy and will get stuck in your head. Which is great. That's how it should be.

Now just like in Fozzy, Jericho's vocals will blow you away. I was honestly surprised. Cause this isn't Fozzy. This is Chris Jericho along with current and former members of the bands Nasty Savage, Obituary, Testament, Death, Iced Earth, Massacre, and Six Feet Under. I've listened to some other music covers and projects that Jericho has done with people not in Fozzy, and I never liked them. Mostly because I didn't hear good chemistry.

But when you listen to "Cardinal One", you can tell there is good chemistry among these guys. I honestly hope they do more. You should definitely check this out and hear for yourself. It's on YouTube, and I think it's also on ITunes.  
Prepare to be blown away with the amazing beat of the drums, the beautiful guitar playing, along with the amazing vocals of Chris Jericho.

From what I've heard, I would definitely give this album an 8/10.

I hope you enjoy this album. Also, if you want to know what songs are good; I love "Hot N Ready" and "Sympathy"(Which reminds me of the band Extermination, as far as the vocals and instrumental. You can check out my post about them.)

Anyway, enjoy this heavy album. I hope you will love it as much as I do. I'm glad I could share this recommendation with you. Leave a comment if you would like to share your feedback. You can also send me a tweet @MJWesney.
Thanks for reading. Be forever metal.

Update (What to look forward to in April)

           Hey guys. So I want to give you an update on what to expect on my blog in April. First off, I am going to be doing an interview with Vicky Psarakis from The Agonist. I'm hoping to conduct the interview and get it posted in April.
I'm also going to be doing some conversations with Stuck Mojo frontman Robby J. We will be discussing topics such as: Is metal dead?, Young musician complaints(which I will explain in a second), and Does music change us as a person?
I'm looking forward to seeing what Robby J has to say about these topics. I actually might discuss all of these with him and do it like a podcast, instead of doing three separate conversations. I'll keep you updated on that.

So about the young musician complaints. I've heard and read some musicians that have been around for a long time, like Alice Cooper, talk about these young musicians complaining about touring. There are some who are complaining about touring, and it makes me think that young musicians don't have any passion, and that they're just in it for the money and fame. That's just my opinion, and I'm not going to get into it, because I will be discussing it with Robby J. With him being a young musician himself, I'm very curious about what he has to say.

So those are some things to look forward to next month. If I come up with more, I will let you guys know. Like to an update part 2.
If you have some suggestions on what you want to see, maybe some interviews you would like to read, let me know in the comments. I will try to get them set up.
Thanks for reading guys.

WWE Women's division (High School drama edition)

   Mae Young and The Fabulous Moolah. Two women who defined the women's division in wrestling. During Mae Young's time, it was pretty much unfathomable for a woman to wrestle. Cause wrestling was a guy thing. But she did it anyway, because it was her passion. These two women are respected for what they did. Cause what they did was pave the way for future women in wrestling.

Women like Lita, Trish Stratus, and even the women we see today like Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Bayley, and Becky Lynch. Back during the attitude era, Lita and Trish Stratus were carrying out the legacy that Mae and the Fabulous Moolah started. They were putting on amazing matches, heck, they even main evented Monday Night Raw. That still happens on Raw today. Charlotte and Sasha Banks have main evented Raw and put on some great matches. But there is one problem with the women's division, and that's their storylines.

Why is it that women in WWE go through storylines that are pretty ,much High School drama? Like triangle relationships for example. Like, that happened in the attitude era, and I never understood it back then. I still don't understand it now. You have talented women, and yet you're making them act like teens. Whether it's complaining about not getting what they want, or becoming furious about someone stealing their so called "boyfriend".I hate seeing this talent get wasted. It happens way to often in WWE these days.

These women deserve to have better stroylines, longer matches, and main events not just on shows, but on pay per views also. We were promised a women's revolution. They weren't going to be called divas anymore. Yet, they still act like them. I mean, to say everything is going to change, then give Nikki Bella the WWE divas championship. You serious? Nothing has changed. I mean, yeah they changed the title to the Women's championship, but that doesn't change the characters and storylines.

The sad thing is, it's not just on the main roster. It's on NXT too. Now, there aren't very many talented women in NXT right now. I only like Asuka. I think she's great. But again, they aren't being treated right. They need storylines that show us they are mature women that can handle anything, instead of whining, complaining teens.

Do you agree with what I said? Are you bothered by this, or could you care less? Let me know in the comments. You can also tweet me @MJWesney

Need your help

 Hey guys. So I'm trying to come up with more ideas for future posts on my blog, and I need your help. If you've read my blog, you know I talk about wrestling. I also talk about music. I do band recommendations, album reviews, etc.
I thought it would be nice if you guys could help me out a bit. I would love for you to be able to participate. Cause if it weren't for you, this blog wouldn't be any fun at all. Which would suck, because I love sharing this stuff with you guys.
So if you have anything in wrestling that you want me to talk about, like maybe a pay per view or an angle you want my opinion on. Or maybe something in music, like a band I should check out, or an album I should listen to and review; then let me know in the comments.

I really hope you guys consider doing this. It would help me out a lot, and I would also love to hear what you guys come up with.
Also, if you don't want to leave a comment, you can send me a tweet @MJWesney. But don't feel shy. All ideas and opinions are welcome.

Talk is Jericho (A must listen for music/wrestling fans)

     So for those of you who don't know; Chris Jericho has a podcast. He's had it for a couple of years, but there are still people discovering it for the first time. So for those of you who haven't listened to his podcast, or are hesitating; let me give you some reasons why it's a must listen for music/wrestling fans.

Jericho's podcast has a variety of guests. From celebrities, to musicians, to wrestlers, etc. But the great thing about it is, no matter who the guest is, you can guarantee it's going to be entertaining.
But my favorite guests are the musicians and wrestlers. I love seeing my two favorite things combined. What's great are the episodes where wrestlers talk about music. For example, Jericho got Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins on an episode to talk about music. They all geeked out about music for about an hour and a half. If you're like me and love to hear you're favorite wrestlers talk about the music you love, then you'll love this episode. Another thing too is, the episodes are not just your normal boring ask a question then move on interviews. They're conversations between friends, which is what makes it so entertaining.

Now I want to name some of the musicians and wrestlers he's had on his podcast.
Lars Ulrich from Metallica.
Dave Mustaine from Megadeth.
Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath
Mick Foley
Edge and Christian
Stone Cold Steve Austin
The list goes on and on, but I think you get the point. He gets some really good guests on here, and I feel like there's an episode for everyone. Cause like I said, he doesn't just have wrestlers and musicians. But, I think it's a great podcast for music/wrestling fans because you get to sit in on some really good conversations with some of the best musicians and wrestlers.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you check out Talk is Jericho, then I hope you enjoy the Pod of Thunder. If you have a twitter, you can follow the podcast @TalkisJericho.
Also, I forgot to mention, the podcast is on  You can also download  the app.
Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

Austin 3:16 (Stone Cold Steve Austin day)

     Since it is Stone Cold Steve Austin day, I decided that I would like to share my favorite Stone Cold moments with you guys.

The first one that comes to mind is the beer truck. Who could forget the iconic moment when Stone Cold drove a beer truck down the ramp, and soaked Vince McMahon in beer. But the one thing about that moment that stands in my mind, is when Vince is trying to get out of the ring. Cause it looks like he's swimming, but is going nowhere. It makes me laugh every time I see it.
Here's a link if you are interested:

The second one that comes to mind is when Vince is in the hospital, and Stone Cold ends up being one of the doctors. At one point, he hits Vince in the head with the bed pan. It's funnier if you see it. No matter how many times I see it, it still makes me laugh.
Here's a link:

Another great one is when he gets Kurt Angle a gift. It's a tiny cowboy hat. Again, it funnier if you see it. In this clip I provide the link for, Kurt is wearing the cowboy hat, and it's hard not to laugh. I don't know how anyone didn't laugh in this segment.
Here's the link:

The last one I have is a segment where Austin decided to sing to Vince. His singing is so off key and terrible, that it's funny at the same time. Again, not sure how Vince kept a straight face during this. Sadly, I couldn't find a video. Sorry guys.

Here's a bonus one. I'm not going to describe it. Just watch and see for yourself. It's hilarious.
Here's the link:

Hope you guys enjoyed these moments. I know I enjoyed sharing them with you. If you have a Twitter, I would love to hear your favorite Stone Cold moments. You can tweet me @MJWesney.
Thanks for reading guys.

Sick Speed

           So my recommendation for today is a band called Sick Speed. Now unless you a die hard Rich Ward fan, you're probably thinking, what the heck is Sick Speed? So let me help you.

Sick Speed was a metal band formed in 1998 by Rich Ward. The band was made of Stuck Mojo members, and guys who would eventually be in Fozzy. They released a couple demos, but didn't release an album until 2002. The album is called "The Way I Am". Now if you are a Fozzy fan, you might recognize the title The Way I Am. That's because it's a Fozzy song, but was originally a Sick Speed song. A couple songs on this album were re-recorded for Fozzy's third album "All that Remains".Also, a couple of songs on here were re-recorded for Rich's solo album "My Kung Fu is Good".
Now the band wasn't around for very long. I think they were only around for a couple years, and they weren't very well known.  People today still don't know about them. Which is why I'm recommending this band. Not for popularity, but for sharing their music. Cause Sick Speed is good, and I want to share this for those of you who may want to listen to something new.
So if you want to check out Sick Speed; their album "The Way I Am", is on YouTube. I'm not sure if any website carries the CD. I've checked Amazon and didn't find it. I'm not sure if it's on iTunes. If you have a Twitter, I would recommend asking Rich @thedukeofmetal. I might ask him myself, and if he answers then I'll edit this and put it on here.
But definitely check it out on YouTube. It's worth the listen. It has a lot of good tunes that you'll enjoy so much, you might listen to them on repeat and sing them to yourself all day cause it's stuck in your head. But that's just the great thing about music.

I hope you guys enjoy this recommendation. I will be doing more. There are so many great bands out there that people don't know about, and I want to share them with you. So look for more recommendations in the future, if you are interested.
Thanks for reading. Be forever metal.

WWE logic (Or what they think it is)

        So today I would like to discuss WWE logic. Or what they think is logic. If you watch Raw or Smackdown, then you'll know and agree that bad booking decisions are ruining some really good talent. Good talent such as Dean Ambrose, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, just to name a few. It's like they have no ideas for the ones that are talented, and have plenty of ideas for those who aren't. Now those ideas aren't always good, but they're still ideas nonetheless. Like, is Vince trying to tell us that Roman Reign is more talented than Dean Ambrose? Please. He can't wrestle or cut a promo if his life depended on it. Also, while we're talking about Roman Reigns, let's talk about last night on Raw. Roman is going against The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, and part of the build up are the mind games courtesy of The Undertaker. Those mind games are meant to get in his opponent's head, to throw them off. Unless that opponent is Roman Reigns. Roman was in a match, he had the upper hand, the gong went off, but Roman didn't lose. Now when the gong or any other mind trick hits, it's supposed to cause the "target" to lose the match. But apparently Roman is immune to these mind games. I wish I was immune to his boredom. We all have problems.
Let's just say for the sake of every fan and my childhood, please don't let Roman win. If he wins, the crowd is going to be so mad. They'll probably just sabotage the rest of the pay per view with CM Punk chants. I'll join them.

Moving on. Another thing I don't like; the logic of the women's division. I thought that the women's division was supposed to mean something now. But after watching Raw and NXT, I've decided to label the women's division as "High School Drama: WWE edition. I mean, you have all these talented women in Asuka, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Charlotte, and others. Yet they are being wasted. I mean, at least their ,matches are longer than five minutes, but still. They deserve better. Like better story lines. Story lines that  don't involve a bully and so called "child". Story lines like what Trish Stratus and Lita were a part of. These women are capable of doing that level of a story line, and those matches. I'm not going to touch too much on this, but I'll do a post about this topic soon.

Anyway, those are just two examples of WWE's crappy booking and their so called "logic". I honestly could go on and on, but I think this pretty much sums it up. There's so much crap they do, it's ridiculous. I might just do individual posts of each main thing, like the women's division. That way I can go more in depth.
Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

Music N Wrestling

           Music and Wrestling have gone hand in hand for years, and still do to this day. This post is going to give you a brief history of music and wrestling's relationship over the years. After the brief history, there will be fun facts about music and wrestling together. Enjoy.

Now I'm not exactly sure when music and wrestling's relationship began, but the moment I remember the two colliding was at Wrestlemania one. Cyndi Lauper made an appearance that day. In my opinion, that is when the relationship started. I think that was the point when the relationship not only started, but that's also when it started to grow.

The relationship definitely expanded over the years. Various artists showed up on wrestling shows, and even did some theme songs for wrestlers. They don't really do that anymore. They have a group of people that create a bunch of theme songs, but outside music can still be used.
So here are some appearances that happened:
1.)Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were the guest hosts of Raw on November 9, 2009.
Here's a link:

2.)Lemmy Kilmister did two of Triple H's themes. The Game and The King of Kings. Lemmy also performed Triple H's entrance at Wrestlemania 21.
Here's the link:

3.)Megadeth performed the song Crsuh 'Em for Goldberg on WCW Monday Nitro in 1999. Goldberg used the song briefly for his entrance.
Here's the link:

4.)Fozzy performed To Kill a Stranger on Raw in 2002.
(Link is below in the fun facts)

5.)ZZ Top showed o up on Raw on September 20, 2009.
Here's the link:
The list goes on, so I only named a few. But I think you get the point.

Wrestling and Music go together like peanut butter and jelly. They are perfect together. Also, if you watch, some musicians will talk about their love for wrestling and vice versa.
I know this wasn't the whole history, because there is so much more, but I just wanted to give a brief history, and highlight the main points.
But to give a little more, here are some fun facts:
1.)Goldberg appeared in the music video for Megadeth's Crush 'Em.
Here's a link:

2.)Raven and DDP appeared in Stuck Mojo's music video for Rising.
Here's the link:

3.) Not a lot of people know this, but Chris Jericho is in a band called Fozzy. He formed it with Stuck Mojo founder Rich Ward.
Here's a link to their performance on Raw in 2002:

4.) Dave Mustaine of Megadeth presented Triple H the first ever spirit of Lemmy Kilmister award at Download Fest 2016.
Here's the link:

5.) Chris Jericho has a podcast called Talk is Jericho. He has musicians and wrestlers on there, along with other people from the entertainment business.

I hope you guys enjoyed this brief history about the relationship between music and wrestling.

The Agonist Five album review

                                                    The Agonist

    So I decided to check out The Agonist yesterday, and the first album I listened to was "Five". So I decided to do a review for it today.

So the album "Five" is the newest album featuring the new vocalist Vicky Psarakis. Now first off; I hesitated listening to this band because I'm not a big fan of female musicians. I have nothing against them, it's just I've never found one I liked. But then I heard Vicky's vocals, and fell in love. This woman is super talented, and can sing.
Now this album is a perfect combo of growling and normal singing. As I was listening to it, I imagined that the swapping between growling and normal singing, was like an exchange between two sides of the same person. Like the growling represented the side that might be angry with a certain issue, and the normal singing expressed the happiness, sorrow, etc. That's just how I saw it. But it, to me, made the album more interesting.
Every song on the album was better than the last. Like I would listen to one and be like, this is my favorite song. Then the next one would play and I would be like, nope it's definitely this one. It was just really good. Big shout out to Vicky and the rest of the guys for a job well done.

So if you are looking for something new, then I would recommend checking out The Agonist. I would definitely start with "Five", because it's such an amazing album. I rate it a 8/10.

Hope you enjoyed this review and recommendation. I'm going to check out more music from The Agonist and will have more posts on them soon. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this album. You can check out The Agonist on Twitter @TheAgonist. You can also check out Vicky @VickyPsarakis.

                                                 Megadeth Recommendations

            I know that Megadeth is a very well known metal band, but I've noticed that there are some people who are just discovering Megadeth for the first time. As a Megadeth fan, I would be more than happy to not only welcome the new droogies (what Dave Mustaine calls his fans), but to also give recommendations on where to start. So for those of you who are new, this is for you.

So first off, I would recommend checking out their latest album "Dystopia". It was released last year and is now 1 year old, but is still an instant classic. It's a thrashy album that represents what Megadeth is all about. "Dystopia" is about a post american world, so what America might possibly be in the future. Hence the name "Dystopia". But the name isn't the thing that makes this album great. It's the collaboration and chemistry that this line up has. The line up for this album consisted of Megadeth founders Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson, along with new member Kiko Loureiro, and Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler. Honestly, this line up reminded me a lot of Megadeth's line up from the 90's. This album also reminds me of a mix between "Rust in Peace" and "Countdown to Extinction", which were their first two 90's albums.

My next recommendation is "Rust in Peace." This album started the 90's period, which in my opinion, is Megadeth's best period. This is the first album with the line up consisting of Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Marty Friedman, and Nick Menza. This line up is my favorite because the music they created was just thrashy and amazing.

Third recommendation would be "Youthanasia". This is my all time favorite Megadeth album. Not a lot of people like it because it's not as thrashy as "Rust in Peace" or any of the other Megadeth albums, but I think it's really good. It has a lot of catchy tunes like "Blood of Heroes", and a favorite among Megadeth fans, "A Tout le Monde".

Here is a list of Megadeth's albums in order. Consider it a checklist for you:

"Killing is my business...and business is good"
"Peace sells, but who's buying?"
"So far, so what!"
"Rust in Peace"
"Countdown to Extinction"
"Cryptic Writings"
"The World Needs a Hero"
"The System has Failed"
"United Abominations"
"Super Collider"

I hope this helps those of you who are new to Megadeth. I also hope you enjoy their music. Also, welcome to the party fellow droogie.
You can follow Megadeth on Twitter @Megadeth. Also here are the account names of the members: @DaveMustaine, @ellefsondavid, @KikoLoureiro, @Verbeurendirk.

Faith No More

                                             Band recommendation: Faith No More

 So with some help from Robby J, I was able to listen to some bands I've never heard of. The first band I decided to check out was Faith No More.
Faith No More is a rock band that formed in 1979. Now originally, I didn't know that  they have been around for that long. I assumed that they were new, but to be honest I think that about every band I discover. Anyway, their music is pretty good. I was very impressed.
The first album I checked out is called "The Real Thing". This album is so good, that I can't stop listening to it. So if you're going to check out this band, I would recommend listening to this album first. Then I would check out the album "Angel Dust".

Here's a little description of those two albums.

The Real Thing: This album is Faith No More's third album, and was released on June 20, 1989. It was also the first major album they released without their vocalist Chuck Mosley.

Angel Dust: This album is Faith No More's fourth album, and was released on June 8, 1992. It was released on that day in Europe and America.

So there you guys go. I hope you enjoy this recommendation. I will say that they are worth a shot. You never no that you'll like something until you try. Like, I honestly wasn't sure I would like them, but then I gave them a shot. Now I'm glad I did.
Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

             Hey guys. So not doing a post today. I'm not feeling good, so I apologize. But, I still wanted to give you something to read for today. So I thought I would give you an update on what I'm working on, and will be posted in the future.

So here's a list:
Robby J Q&A- I talked about this in my last post yesterday. I want to give fans of Stuck Mojo that don't have a Twitter account something cool to read. I figure some of them might want to know about Robby J, which is why I did that interview. But I want to do this, and I need help from you fans. So if you have a Twitter account and a question for Robby, then send your question to me @MJWesney. I will ask him through DM, and I will also tell him your account name so you get credit.

History of music and wrestling- My blog is supposed to be about music and wrestling, not just music. So for my first wrestling post, I'm going to talk about how music and wrestling have gone hand in hand over the years, and still do today.

More recommendations- I have more band recommendations for metal fans. I was talking to Robby J and he recommended some bands that are really good. I look forward to passing on the recommendations.

That's all I have for now. I will come up with more posts soon. I'm also hoping to post something tomorrow, it just depends on how I feel.
Big thanks to those who are reading my blog. Also if you are new, then welcome and I hope you enjoy.
Thanks for reading this guys. Be forever metal.

Stuck Mojo music video

     So Stuck Mojo's music video for Rape Whistle came out today, and I have to say that it's awesome. It's everything I was hoping for, and then some.
If you didn't get a chance to watch it at 11:00 today, then head over to Stuck Mojo's YouTube channel and watch it there. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Stuck Mojo

                                                     Stuck Mojo

Got another recommendation for you guys today. My recommendation is Stuck Mojo.
This band formed in 1989, but is not very well known. So I want to share this band, for those of you who are new. Now, I've only been a fan of this band since like late 2016. The reason is because they are a rap/metal band. I love metal, but I'm not a fan of rap. So I hesitated for the longest time on trying to listen to their music. But, I finally decided one day that I wanted to expand my horizons a little bit. Try something new. So I checked out their latest album "Here come the infidels", with new front man Robby J Fonts.
I've got to say that after listening to this album, I was blown away. I absolutely loved it, and I still love it. The rap doesn't bug me thanks to the groovy/heavy riffs courtesy of The Duke of Metal Rich Ward. Because with the metal part, it's not your typical rap. Rap usually has hip hop with it, which is what I don't like. But Stuck Mojo is rap/metal, emphasis on metal.
Anyway, after I checked out "Here come the infidels", I decided that I wanted to check out their other albums. But I didn't know where to start. So I asked Rich Ward on Twitter, and he gave me some suggestions. So huge shout out to Rich Ward, cause if it weren't for him, I wouldn't have discovered the other amazing albums that Stuck Mojo has to offer.
So for those of you who are interested in checking out Stuck Mojo, I'm going to give you the suggestion Rich Ward gave me. Check out "Here Come the Infidels" and "Declaration of a Headhunter". After that, I would check out "Rising", and then their other two albums "Snappin' necks" and "Pigwalk." After I listened to those, I then discovered "Southern Born Killers" and "Great Revival", and those two are good also.
That's all of their albums, for now. I know after listening to Stuck Mojo, I'm now excited for future albums.

So I hope you guys enjoyed this recommendation. I really enjoy helping people out when it comes to trying out new bands.
You can follow Stuck Mojo on Twitter @Wearestuckmojo. You can follow Rich Ward @thedukeofmetal. You can also follow their new front man Robby J @RobbyJFonts. If you enjoy their music, then send them a tweet. Show them you're love. I know they'll appreciate it.
Also, if you would like to, then you can follow me @MJWesney. I would love to hear your feedback on this post,and also on the others I've done.
Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

   So I wasn't quite sure what to talk about, so I decided that I'm going to give another band recommendation. I think I'm just going to do recommendations whenever I don't have a specific topic I want to blog about.
So my recommendation today is Sixx:A.M. This band used to be Nikki Sixx's side project, but is now his main project since Motley Crue is now done. So this band has three members; Nikki Sixx, James Michael, and DJ Ashba.
These guys are all very talented and work well together. I love their music. I say they're definitely worth checking out, especially if you are a Motley Crue fan. I'm a fan of both Motley Crue and Nikki Sixx, so when I found out he had another band, I decided to check them out. With no hesitation.
I first checked out the album "This is Gonna Hurt", which has songs that are catchy, and others that seemed a little on the sad side. So, catchy songs and ballads.
The second album I checked out is called "Prayers for the Damned". This album has most of my favorite Sixx:A.M songs like Rise and Belly of the Beast.
The third album I checked out is called "The Heroin Diaries". This album is about Nikki Sixx's struggles with heroin. It really got to me emotionally because I always feel sad hearing the stories about people becoming a victim to drugs. But, it is a good listen, so definitely check this one out.

I would check out all three of these albums if you are new to the band. I feel like this would be a good start.
You can find these albums on YouTube. I also know that some of them are on Spotify, so you can go there too. You can follow the band on Twitter @SixxAM. You can follow Nikki Sixx @Nikki Sixx. The other two are @james_a_michael and @DjASHBA.
Hope you guys enjoy this recommendation. If you want more recommendations, then check out my blog because I will try to post daily. You can also hit me up on Twitter @MJWesney, and I can give you recommendations there as well.
Thanks for reading. Be forever metal.
