This week Maxim magazine got caught in a lie: It delivered a kinda-negative review of the Black Crowes‘ new album, Warpaint, which the magazine hadn’t actually heard. The band’s management has been angrily demanding all manner of apologies—proving that rock critics are still useful for publicity, if no longer in a telling-people-about-new-records kinda way.

Aaron Leitko and Jason Cherkis are unfazed by Maxim‘s embarrassment. In the video below, they discuss Warpaint, Snoop Dogg‘s Ego Trippin‘, the B-52sFunplex, and a few more upcoming releases they haven’t heard a second of. Caveat emptor!
