New Year’s resolutions: Most people don’t live up to them, but everyone makes ‘em — even your favorite hard rockers. How do we know? Thanks to the good people at Noisecreep, who asked a long list of rock’s heaviest hitters to share their plans for 2012, including Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, Skillet vocalist John Cooper and Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack.
This month will be a big one for Van Halen fans, as the band is expected to debut the leadoff single from its long-awaited new album and start selling tickets for its 2012 world tour.

We suddenly became hungry — and wanted a bigger paycheck — after reading about wacky, overpriced foods like the $1,000 jam and the world’s most expensive chocolate pudding. But this is far from the first time someone’s had the bright idea to charge thousands of dollars for high-end victuals.
In fact, it’s a weird sort of tradition in the food world, and after looking at a few of the more notable examples, we decided this would be the perfect time for a list. Grab your utensils, guard your wallet and take a look at some of the most opulent foodstuffs in the world.
Petty and the band are planning to release a live vinyl LP to mark the occasion, offering fans a chance to hear new versions of classic tracks, cuts from ‘Mojo,’ and a concert performance of the rare B-side ‘Sweet William.’
Williams, who compared a golf match between President Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” attempted to clarify his remarks through a post on his website.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has mailed out the ballots for its 27th annual list of potential inductees, leaving it to the organization’s 500 voters to pick the winners from an eclectic group that includes first-time nominees as well as returning contenders.
