With this year’s MTV Video Music Awards set for Sunday, Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids are ready with a new set that mocks the always-watched and often-befuddling event.
The 2017 Garbage Pail Kids Empty V Awards set consists of 12 stickers — two versions of six images — and they’re only available for a limited time.
This is one of those black days for music fans.
Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell — one of the iconic voices of grunge music in the 1990s and a successful performer in all the years since — has died at 52.
Known for his intense guttural sound but also dramatic range, Cornell was part of six studio albums with Soundgarden and three with Audiosoave as part of a career that spanned more than 30 years and included two Grammy awards.
“For me to make a connection with music it has to either have a visceral nature, whether it’s anger or aggression or that kind of passion which shows up in rock music, or there has to be some sort of melancholy and introspection, something about it that makes you feel your own pain,” he once told Rolling Stone.
But, when it comes to cardboard, there’s not a lot to go around to note his lengthy career.
The music world lost another of its memorable stars on Sunday as George Michael died at age 53.
He sold more than 100 million albums during his career as a solo artist and as half of the band Wham!, which arrived with the first of its three Platinum albums in 1983. His debut solo album, Faith, has sold more than 25 million copies since 1987.
But when it comes to cardboard? Well, collectors really only have two places to look.
