As a live music fan, we’ve been incredibly bored the last two weeks as most of the late night shows have been on break because of the Olympics. Imagine our excitement when we heard that Muse and the remaining members of Queen (sorry Paul Rodgers, you don’t count) would be performing during the closing ceremonies. We were all ready to post this epic video of Muse’s “Survival” leading to Brian May shredding before band mate Roger Taylor and (alleged superstar) Jessie J joined him for “We Will Rock You” until NBC filed a copyright claim on YouTube. It’s alright though. Thanks to the awesome Muse message board, we were able to at least get our hands on Muse’s performance. Enjoy it below:

A Brand New Puddle Of Mudd song titled “Shook Up The World” was recorded for Team USA and the 2010 Winter Olympics. The music, which will debut on the opening day of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, will offer inspirational songs for Team USA, sports and music fans across the country. The proceeds from tracks purchased during the Olympic Games (Feb 12 to 28) will benefit Team USA!

“Being a part of this collection of great artists in support of Team USA is inspiring. But the greatest reward is knowing that our contribution will help athletes achieve their dreams of Olympic Gold now, and into the future,” said Wes Scantlin. “Here’s to all Team USA athletes who will shake up the world with their performances at the Winter Games in Vancouver!”

Shook Up The World” and Puddle of Mudd’s recently released album Volume 4: Songs In The Key of Love & Hate are both available now on iTunes!

Musician Trouble Andrew returns to his snowboarding roots with a historic concert at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, performing his signature brand of “electro sk8/crunk rock” at a 12,000-capacity outdoor venue. The two-time Olympian and Burton-sponsored pro snowboarder (aka Trevor Andrew) will play songs from his 2009 10-song debut CD Trouble Andrew, as well as new material from his forthcoming second full-length CD. Trouble Andrew’s live performances have been garnering raves, one critic noting: “Whether rapping or singing, he enthralled the audience, even writhing around the floor like he was Iggy (synth-) Pop.”

The musician cites influences such as Bad Brains, Ice Cube, Black Flag, Descendents, Minor Threat, the Beastie Boys and Three Six Mafia, noting: “Punk rock, hip hop, sk8, snowboard, and surf cultures have a lot in common. They came about naturally and from the underground. That freedom of nonconformity is what ties them together. I wanted it all represented in my music.” Trouble turned seriously to making music during a long period of recuperation from a snowboarding injury: “Making music definitely saved my life,” he says. “I could’ve gotten depressed over my injury, but instead I was so excited to make music and discover new sounds.

The as yet untitled Trouble Andrew CD will be out in Spring 2010.
