Things have happened this week. Important things. Danny Worsnop quit Asking Alexandria, for a start. So to lighten the mood a little, here are all of the little things that made us laugh over the last seven days.

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus delivered the ultimate burn to Fall Out Boy.


Also this week, poorly terribly drawn pop-punk bands became a thing.

First came Neck Deep...

After that? State Champs

And The Story So Far, too.


Every Time I Die's Jordan Buckley said what we've all been thinking for years.


In the animal kingdom, Rou Enter Shikari's cat had really hungry eyes...


Perfect end to a hard day's work. #TheMindsweep #VegiMayhem #AlbumReleaseDay #NoFreyaNotForYou

...while Tay We Are The In Crowd's feline friend had an eye on something bigger than pizza. Space, apparently.

Fronz from Attila was wrong. Dead wrong.


The Xcerts went some way to explaining why there's a song on their new album called 'Kevin Costner'.

"We really rate you as an actor and human being". High praise indeed.

The selfie stick was in the spotlight this week too, as the Stoke Sugarmill banned them from its premises.

One member of the rock community in particular was distraught at their decision.

Yep, that's Rody Walker from Protest The Hero, who apparently loves selfie sticks. Who knew?

Speaking of the Canadian metalcore man, we stumbled across his YouTube channel this week. Here he is putting some lights up outside his house.

That was an experience, wasn't it?

Exhausted Rody's YouTube channel already and wondering what to do this weekend? Why not grab your essential guide to everything that's going down in 2015 in the form of our new issue?

It comes with a MASSIVE, FREE Pierce The Veil / Sleeping With Sirens poster.

It's so exciting we can't stop typing in CAPITAL LETTERS.
