I-Tunes finally had a cool free new song this week and you need to pick it up now!! Song called “Shockwave” from a band named Black Tide. Check out the song on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rw4aqN0XlRc. The band is all younger than 21 and supposedly the singer is 15. They played at Ozzfest last year. Sounds good!! \m/ \m/
