The Return of Twinkies, Dennis Miller, and Song Fights

  • Print

July 15th, 2013 will go down as a very historical day here in our country. Why?  Because Twinkies will officially be back on the shelves! The snack cakes will contain the same ingredients and the same price point as before, just packaged in a slightly different box. The new box will display the line “The Sweetest comeback in the history of ever.” So what about Ho Hoes, Zingers, CupCakes, Donettes, Sno Balls, fruit pies and mini muffins? Yep, they will slowly be introduced back into the market over the next few months as well. Hostess filed bankruptcy last November before being purchased by Apollo Group and Metropoulos & Co for $410 million. To both of those companies: America Thanks You. 

Dennis Miller has done stand-up, talk shows, movies, politics, radio, Monday Night Football and SNL. Well, now he can officially add The Morning After to his resume as he joined us on the show this morning. Check out that full interview on the front page of xrock.com.

Stone Sour’s “Tired” snatched up a Cage Match victory this morning after a nice little run by our friends, Blue October. If you get a chance, check out the making of Blue October’s new album and even get involved in the process by clicking right here. Ok, so here's your current Cage Match Champion:

RoCk WaRs!

Nic - II    Big J - I

Monday - Happy Birthday Peter Loeffler! Hard to pick a favorite Chevelle song which is probably why there was a tie between Anj's choice of The Clincer and Big J's choice of Send the Pain Below. Tie it is.  

Tuesday -  Songs that could use subtitles that make sense?  The tie goes to Nic with his choice of Pearl Jam Yellow Leadbetter although Big J's choice of Static X Cannibal was just as inaudiable.

Wednesday -  Happy Birthday Spike Jones!  Thank You for the awesome videos you gave us. Today's rock war ends in yet ANOTHER TIE.  Nic's choice of Tenacious D Wonderboy beats Big J's choice of Beastie Boys Sabotage.  Hard to chose for sure but somebody has to come out victorious. 

Thursday -  Reality shows are everywhere!  What band would you tune in to watch week after week?  Big J wins with All that Remains Stand up beating Nic's Puddle of Mudd Give me Shelter choice. 

Friday - In honor of Mark Zuckerberg delivering a speech in Chinese we will war with bilingual songs. Big J's Romstein America beats out  Nic's Beck Loser.
