Here's a few of my favorites for Halloween:
Universal Music will release "The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria" DVD and Blu-ray containing footage of the June 22, 2010 Sonisphere cinecast from the Sofia, Bulgaria leg of the touring rock festival featuring the "Big Four" of 1980s thrash metal: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. The DVD hits the streets on November 2 in North America and the full shows from all four bands will be included in the two-disc set along with behind the scenes and interview footage.
On the DVD Metallica was joined onstage by members of Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax for a performance of the Diamond Head song "Am I Evil?" James Hetfield, Megadeth singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine and Anthrax vocalist Joey Belladonna took turns singing the song, and it was the first time that Dave Mustaine had performed onstage with Metallica since April 9, 1983. An original member of the band, he was fired just weeks before Metallica recorded its debut album, "Kill 'Em All".
Here's some footage of The Big Four performing "Am I Evil?", although not officially from the DVD, still cool shit:
Here's some official video of Metallica performing "Sad But True" from the DVD:

At yesterday's "Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear" with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in Washington D.C., the two of them were looking to catch a train. Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) got the "Peace Train" going, but then Colbert introed Ozzy bringing on the "Crazy Train" and the battle insued. It was all resolved when both Stewart and Colbert agreed they could compromise and get on the "Love Train", bringing out The O'Jay's. Funny Stuff:
