David Letterman's Best Hip-Hop Moments: Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, J. Cole and More

Buzz 14:54PM EDT

David Letterman has long been known as a lover of rock 'n' roll...all it takes to get the late night host on your side was to behave erratically or energetically onstage, which would almost certainly merit an "oh boy!" It took a little bit more to get the longtime host of the 'The Late Show' fired up for hip-hop however. To honor Letterman as he prepares to host the last night of his 33-year run on CBS (and to avoid conflicting with everyone else's list of the best performances ever on the show), Music Times has gathered up five great hip-hop performances that took place late night over the years, with almost all coming from emcees in Letterman's adopted hometown of New York City, including Run-D.M.C. and The Beastie Boys.READ MORE

Jack White Makes 'Six-Figure' Donation to National Blues Museum for Interactive Exhibit

Buzz 09:17AM EDT

Jack White caught flack when hacked e-mails revealed his distaste for the Black Keys allegedly ripping him off...so at least he's generous in acknowledging the musical acts from which he pieced to gather his signature style. The guitarist made a healthy contribution to the National Blues Museum, which is scheduled to open in St. Louis later this year. The organization told media that the dollar figure was in the "six figure" range.READ MORE

Grammys 2015 Best Rock Album, Who Should & Will Win: Can Ryan Adams Beat Out U2, Beck and The Black Keys?

Exclusives 16:55PM EDT

The Best Rock Album category isn't normally a big deal at the Grammys, which is really a celebration of everything pop. This year is a different story, though. U2 is up for the award thanks to their September release, Songs of Innocence, or better known as That One They Gave Away for Free. The Irish band caught a fair amount of criticism from iTunes users and fellow musicians when the album magically appeared in their digital libraries. That will be the big storyline going into Sunday for the Rock Album category rather than the fact that Ryan Adams, Beck, The Black Keys and Tom Petty all had spectacular titles to their credit in 2014.READ MORE

On Monday, Feb. 2, we lamented the lack of experimentation in the 2015 Song of the Year category, and there is not much to be excited about in the Best Rock Song category, either. Album of the Year rivulet "Blue Moon" -- from Beck's "Morning Phase" -- is one of the favorites, along with Paramore's "Ain't It Fun" and Jack White's "Lazaretto." Who should win and who will win at the Grammys?READ MORE
