  1. Rock's Silent Majority Rules Again: Bastille Will Play SNL and Ev...

    Steven Hyden

    A few years ago, I started using the term "silent-majority rock" to describe bands that garner virtually no coverage in the music press and appear to be devoid of (for lack of a better term) "buzz" — and yet also happen to have hit songs and su...

  4. Are You Pissed Off for Greatness?

    Andrew Sharp

    Some of the Internet's greatest gifts are the absurd hype videos that get posted on YouTube before any big sporting event. They are stupid and formulaic, full of cheesy music and highlights, and I will love them until the end of time. With that i...

    Ian Cohen

    Musician Benjamin Curtis passed away this Sunday at the age of 35, and while his death is certainly a tragedy, it wasn't a total shock — the founding member of Secret Machines and School of Seven Bells had been battling cancer for nearly a year...

    Now more than ever, pop culture is about the small stuff — an obscure TV show, a few notes in a pop song, a tweet. To celebrate a year of micro moments, every day a new Grantland writer will highlight one specific thing — a Big Little Thi...

    Zach Dionne

    If it comes as a surprise that Beyonce finds herself at no. 1 again, you're an easy-to-surprise person who's going to have a great Christmas where every gift seems miraculous. But yes, Beyonce is Beyonce's fifth time debuting atop the Billboard 200, ...

    Ian Cohen

    Mark Trombino is in the business of legitimizing guilty pleasures - the cultured aesthete may scoff "too cloying," "kid stuff," "not recommended more than twice a week," and they could not be more wrong. But enough about the records he produced...

    Grantland Staff

  14. My Top 10 Best (Favorite) Albums of 2013

    Steven Hyden
