Ryan Adams 1989

REQUIRED LISTENING: Ryan Adams – “Bad Blood” (Taylor Swift Cover)

Earlier this fall, Ryan Adams raised more than a few eyebrows when he announced that he would be covering Taylor Swift‘s latest album, 1989, in full.

Theory Of A Deadman Go Acoustic, Butcher Tove Lo’s “Habits”

Modern rock greats Theory Of A Deadman have built their career on brutally honest lyricism and catchy, damn near impossible to ignore rock melodies.
