ROCK REPORT 12-1-14!

Monday, Dec, 1 2014

Creed vocalist Scott Stapp is having problems. He posted a 15-minute video on Facebook and says he's broke, homeless, and a victim of a "clerical error" by the IRS that helped clean out his wallet.

He also mentioned "a lot of money was stolen from him" and "royalties not paid" and insists that he's completely sober and can prove it.

He was also placed on a psych hold after cops say he had drug-fueled paranoid delusions that he's a marked man, and his wife says he hears voices and worries his kid will get attacked.

Apparently, deputies found Scott on the side of a road a couple of weeks ago and he was rambling that someone was trying to poison him.

Jaclyn Stapp -- who filed for divorce last month – says Scott is off the hinges, threatening to kill himself.
She says he hears phantom voices and has visions of people on fire.

Music That Makes You Dumb

Tuesday, Nov, 25 2014

The following study reveals if you like Country or Rap music...you're not very smart.

A Cal Tech’s student has come up with a very interesting chart dealing with music smart people listen to. He began the study with the ten most frequent "favorite music" at every college thru the school’s Network Stats page on Facebook.

Then he downloaded the average SAT/ACT score (from CollegeBoard) for students attending every college.

The study plots the average SAT of each "favorite music.”

The students with the higher SAT and ACT scores favored music by Beethoven. Beethoven was way ahead of every other musical artist.

It’s interesting that those who love rap music – had the lowest average ACT/SAT scores.
You’ll be happy to hear that country music fans fared worse than hard rock lovers…but not by much. By translation of this study, if you like Carrie Underwood or Kenny Chesney’s music…..you’re not very smart.

If you like Led Zeppelin – good – your test scores – on average – are about 100 points higher than someone who enjoys Kanye West.

Pearl Jam, Green Day, Rage Against the Machine,  Incubus, Linkin Park, and Nirvana fans have a test score of about 100 points higher than those who favor Nickelback.

Fans of Disturbed, Tool, Metallica, and System of a Down didn’t do much better than those who love country music.

Beyonce and Lil Wayne showed the lowest level scores on this study for SATs – Beyonce average score of 932, Lil Wayne 889, compared to Beethoven music lovers avg. score of 1371.

Weezer, Led Zeppelin, and Chili Peppers fans had the highest avg. test scores in the rock category.

Commercial featuring Santa Pooping.....

Monday, Nov, 24 2014

"Poo-Pourri" is a product you spray in the toilet, and it prevents you from stinking up the bathroom.  A new ad for it just went viral . . . because it features Santa having an emergency bathroom issue while he's leaving presents under someone's tree.   Three kids walk in on him in their bathroom, and tell him he's stinking up their whole house. 

And it's actually kind of weird, because it's three little girls standing there watching him.  Then at the end, their mom is sitting on his lap singing . . . while he's still in the middle of taking a crap.

The commercial is called “Even Santa Poops.”
