Published: Mon Nov 07 2005

Music has always been at the core of online magazine, the sinister cabal of more than 1,100 superior bloggers who find the time – when not writing about the local skate punk band they saw in town or the latest hip hop release to blingfully rupture the earth's core – to also get around to waxing off on movies, books, politics, TV, and pop culture reviews, news, and opinions.

Every day, over a dozen music articles get filed and added to the overall vault of 37,000 pieces dating back to 2002, when John Scalzi inaugurated with his take on a band called Dorman. Today, freshly minted Music Editor Connie Phillips presides over an award-winning (Bloggie – Best Weblog About Music) and thriving kingdom of rabidly commenting music fans and music reviews, opinions, and a unique spin on breaking news that you just won't find anywhere else.
