William Beckett performs “Down And Out” acoustic

While at the Dear Jack Benefit Concert in LA, William Beckett, former front man of The Academy Is…, performed “Down And Out” acoustically. The song comes off TAI’s debut album, Almost Here, which was released in 2005. I’m sure this acoustic version of the song brought fans of The Academy Is… back to the old […]

STREAM: Sleeping With Sirens – Fuck You (Cee Lo Green Cover)

It’s time to start the party up and blast some new tunes. Sleeping With Sirens are streaming their awesome Punk Goes Pop 4 cover of Cee Lo Green’s hit single “Fuck You.” The group really stepped up to the plate here and delivered one the best versions to come off of PGP4, that I’ve heard. […]

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Rihanna – Roc Me Out

Another cut from Rihanna’s upcoming album has found its way online and UTG has the goods. Taken from the back half of Talk That Talk, we think “Roc Me Out” could very well be Rihanna’s biggest single to date (should she choose to push it to radio). Huge chorus, perfect beat, what more could you […]

Though the video is of a live performance, […]

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Master P – TMZ (Too Many Zeros)

The man who made us say “Ugh” is back with a brand new track that sure to get Harvey Levin’s attention. The title track to his new mixtape, “TMZ (Too Many Zeros)” finds Master P proving he’s still got it. The beat hits hard, lots of bass and snare, and makes a fitting addition to […]
