In 2009, 40 years after Buzz Aldrin's (and Neil Armstrong's) historic walk on the moon, the NASA veteran scored big on his bucket list by laying down a gangsta hip-hop track with Snoop Dogg. There really is nothing the Rocket Man can't do.
"I have only two passions: Space exploration and hip-hop," Aldrin said. It turns out that the 81-year-old's underpublicized devotion to hip-hop isn't lost on the music scene; Quincy Jones, Kweli, Soulja Boy and Snoop attested that Buzz is revered throughout the game for his spirited lyrics. Aldrin wasn't too proud, though, to let Snoop coach him up to get the beat just right. Here's the making of the hip-hop masterpiece:

Professional sports leagues love to promote stories about their players volunteering in their communities and spreading the love around. But, as the above infographic demonstrates, that giving spirit oftentimes leads athletes to spread something else--their seed. During the regular season, these guys travel nonstop, and nights on the road can get lonely. Unfortunately for some, the price of quenching that loneliness is a couple decades' worth of child support. Click the image above for the 10 pro players with the most babies by different baby mamas.
In an effort to mentally escape the stifling New York City humidity, I've been compulsively participating in fantasy football mock drafts (nearly a hundred, no exaggeration). Last Saturday, I was drinking a six-pack of Pork Slap beer, watching "The Longest Yard" with Burt Reynolds and doing fantasy drafts on my laptop (yep, I get loco on weekends). "The Longest Yard" is about a prison football game between the inmates and guards. Adam Sandler did an inferior remake of it in 2005. Sorry, I like Sandler and love him as a "special" college linebacker, but not as an NFL-caliber quarterback.
As Reynolds and the prisoners were celebrating their win, I decided to try to draft a quality fantasy roster of criminals. Around 40 NFL players have been arrested from the beginning of last season until now, so it has to be possible, right? Not only is it possible, but I had multiple options every round. The All-Arrest-Record Team has a good chance to win my leagues (as long as they stay out of the clink). Read More...
Today's installment of "Best Band Ever" is the first in a weekly Clutch series highlighting bands that have come to rest on the wrong side of public opinion. Sure, they might suck. But at the same time, they might just be the greatest thing to ever happen to music.
The facts faded long ago into a puddle of malt liquor, vomit and the settled ashes from some twice-burned pot, but the best remaining guess is that seven people were arrested in the melee that broke out on July 4, 1988, on the streets of Long Beach, California.
Allegedly, a police helicopter and almost four dozen officers were called to the scene, where 400 or so revelers greeted them with Roman candles and broken bottles for breaking up the moment. The occasion? The first-ever gig for a brand-new band out of the LBC that combined funk, ska and tremendous amounts of chemicals. And that's how Sublime introduced itself to this earth. And depending on whom you talk to, it only went downhill from there. Read More...
Lavar Johnson shouldn't be here right now. And not "here" like kicking ass in Strikeforce and preparing for his July 22 heavyweight fight with Devin Cole. No, we mean not "here" as in not alive. You see, the 6-foot-3, 250 pound monster of a man was shot three times at a family reunion during Fourth of July weekend in 2009.
Less than two months after his Strikeforce debut where he pulverized Carl Seumanutafa in 18 seconds, Johnson was in Bakersfield, California, hugging his family good-bye, when all hell broke loose. It was an innocent family night that turned chaotic when 19-year-old Bennie Elwood West decided to randomly open fire on all the partygoers in search of somebody who may not have even been there. And perhaps the only reason why Johnson ended up with bullets in his abdomen was because he heroically shielded a little girl who stood frozen in fear as the tragic events unfolded. Johnson was left in critical condition as the bullets tore through his intestine, colon and stomach. But the fight in the big man kept him alive, and he was amazingly back in the cage knocking an opponent out eight months later. Just call him the "Black Superman" of mixed martial arts--everyone else already does. Read More...
Watching "The Andy Milonakis Show" on mute is just as fun as watching it with sound. 'Round these parts, we consider Andy the Charlie Chaplin of the digital age. It's as if the absurdist comedian/writer/rapper foresaw the popularity of animated GIFs 10 years before everyone else did. His brand of funny is quick and slapstick--the kind of LOL that lends itself perfectly to an ever-looping 24KB image file. We included eight such files after the jump. Read More...
This might be news to some of you youngsters out there, but heavy metal wasn't always the angry carnival of shredded vocal cords it is today. No, there was a time when scrawny long-haired men wailed over speedy riffs and you could still hear hints of Led Zeppelin and Ozzy. Believe it or not, metal used to be fun.
Well, power metal outfit Sacred Oath is bringing back those halcyon days with the premiere of their new video, "Meet Your Maker," right here on Clutch.
"We had a ton of fun shooting this video," says singer/guitarist Rob Thorne. "We started in the '80s and we're proud to hang on to the fun side of that decade...smoke, haunted forests, aerial fire dancers, what's not to love?" Thorne forgot to mention the rest of the video's highlights, like chain-link guitar straps, drumstick spins, Flying V guitars and a blistering solo. Basically, everything awesome about old-school metal.
So for all you headbangers looking to fill the void in your hearts (and ears) left by the death of Ronnie James Dio, give the video a look and be sure to check out Sacred Oath on tour this fall.
The tag line--"First Contact. Last Stand."--is so perfectly symmetrical and dramatic that it was begging to be spoofed. So that's what we did. Six times. The following films are not yet rated and will never be produced, but they're just as outlandish as the soon-to-hit-theaters "Cowboys & Aliens." Read More...
