Lars Ulrich proud of "overwhelming" response to Metallica's Day of Service

ABC/Randy HolmesThis past Wednesday, Metallica held their first Day of Service, a country-wide volunteering effort in coordination with the band's All Within My Hands charity foundation. In a piece written for Rolling Stone, drummer Lars Ulrich says that the response to the program has been "overwhelming."

"We're so proud of the passion and the selflessness that our fans brought to all their local chapters around the country," Ulrich writes. "All the reports that have ended up in my inbox reflect nothing but goodwill, good deeds, good vibes and good energy."

Nearly 2,000 Metallica fans volunteered at their local food bank for the Day of Service, while the metal legends themselves donated $5,000 to California's San Francisco-Marin Food Bank.

"As someone who has been a loner for most of my life, being in the Metallica family has always given me a sense of belonging and made me feel like I was not alone," Ulrich writes.

"As we all know, hard rock can sometimes, in different parts of the world, be looked down upon as a second-class member of the global music community," he continues. "So we are additionally pleased that we can show everyone that hard-rock and metal fans can be as compassionate and as selfless as any other people in the worldwide charitable family and the bad stigma that sometimes is hung upon them/us as somehow lesser citizens can be readdressed."

Here are a few disgusting things Marilyn Manson did during his tour with Korn and Danzig

Rich Fury/Getty Images for CoachellaIn a new video promoting their upcoming Twins of Evil: The Second Coming tour, Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie talked about the first time they heard each other's music. When Zombie said that he first saw Manson live when the latter was touring with Danzig and Korn in 1995, the Antichrist Superstar revealed a few of the disgusting things he did while on that tour.

"I used to p*** on [Korn's] catering," Manson said, to which Zombie replied, "Well, you gotta do what you gotta do."

"I just thought it was funny," Manson added.

Danzig was also not immune to Manson's, uh, antics.

"I would use his bus as a place for sexual liaisons," Manson said.

So in conclusion, Marilyn Manson did Marilyn Manson things. If you want to see Marilyn Manson do more Marilyn Manson things, the Twins of Evil: The Second Coming tour begins July 11 in Detroit.

The 1975 hints at possible new music in cryptic teaser

Credit: Vijat MohindraYet again, The 1975 is up to something. The ever-cryptic band has shared a mysterious new teaser, suggesting that new music is coming soon.

The 15-second clip simply features the number seven displayed on the screen while a creepy piano track plays in the background. 

It's unclear what exactly the seven means, but it could be referring to us being a week away from June 1, a date that The 1975 has long been teasing. As for what's going to happen next Friday, it will likely have to with the band's forthcoming new album, Music for Cars, the follow-up to 2016's I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.

Earlier this month, The 1975 launched a countdown clock on their website that will reach zero on on May 31 at 6:59:59 p.m. ET, or 11:59:59 p.m. -- one second before June 1 -- in the band's native England.

After Rivers Cuomo and Steve Aoki, who does AJR want to collaborate with next?

ABC/Randy HolmesLast week, AJR teamed up with superstar DJ Steve Aoki and rapper Lil Yachty to release a new song called "Pretender," a bouncy, upbeat EDM track written about the band's struggle with anxiety. As lead vocalist Jack Met tells ABC Radio, it was that juxtaposition that intrigued the brother trio.

"We wanted to focus on social anxiety and the insecurities that we have as artists and as just regular people," Jack says. "As soon as Steve said that he liked the song, we said, 'Oh that's really interesting that a DJ would be willing and excited to produce a song with those kind of lyrics.'"

"It came out really cool," he adds. "The reason we love it so much is because it's so different. You don't see many EDM or electronic songs that sound like this."

AJR is no stranger with writing about anxiety, or with experimenting with different genres, for that matter. Take their hit "Sober Up," which reached number one on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.

"['Pretender' is] kind of an unlikely group of people making an unlikely song," vocalist and much-instrumentalist Ryan Met says. "I think we tried to do a similar thing with 'Sober Up,' where there's classical cello and kind of folk guitar, and every section of the song feels like a new genre."

"We didn't know whether ['Sober Up'] was gonna be a hit or not, but we knew it surprised us," he adds.

"Pretender" and "Sober Up" also have another thing in common: collaborators. While AJR dove into the EDM and rap worlds for "Pretender," "Sober Up" features Weezer's Rivers Cuomo. So who's up next on AJR's list of potential guests?

"[Kendrick Lamar] would be amazing," says Ryan.

"Panic! at the Disco is really cool, they have an amazing sound," adds Jack.
