Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Travis Barker and More: Face and Head Tattoos in Music

Buzz 16:26PM EDT

Young Thug shocked the world when he revealed that he had gotten an ice cream cone tattooed on his face in tribute to Gucci Mane. "Shocked" might be a bit of a stretch, considering that the rapper has been on a tear of unpredictable behavior since the release of his Barter 6 album. First he tried to cop the name Tha Carter 6 from Lil Wayne (and in an "unrelated" incident, his road manager was just arrested for allegedly shooting at Weezy's tour bus). The he got the "tribute" tattoo. What next? Will he start wearing clocks on chains as a "tribute" to Flava Flav? Anyway, all we have right now is that Young Thug got some fresh ink, and it's on his face. Here are six other prominent musicians that have used their heads as showcases for questionable art installations.READ MORE

Dimebag Darrell: Unreleased Song 'Whiskey Road' Surfaces from Late Pantera Guitarist [LISTEN]

Buzz 14:53PM EDT

Guitar magazine "GuitarWorld" has unearthed a previously unreleased song by late Pantera/Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott titled "Whiskey Road", which you can check out below. According to "Rolling Stone," "Whiskey Road" was recorded back in 2001 as Pantera was finishing up their final U.S. tour, with Dimebag playing every instrument on the recording himself. The song has been pressed to a special vinyl flexi-disc by GuitarWorld as a part of their upcoming Dimebag tribute issue, and have even shared the song's guitar tabs. Although Dimebag's work with Pantera and Damageplan was pretty riff-heavy and brutal, "Whiskey Road" is more mellow and country-tinged, with acoustic guitar being the primary instrument, though Dimebag still makes room for some bluesy, distorted guitar solos. You can check out Dimebag Darrell's "Whiskey Road" here:READ MORE
