According to Mashable, Cup Noodles have released a new ‘chicken nugget and fries’ flavored ramen, an epic combination of three of our most treasured college favorites. Each cup contains actual tiny chicken nuggets, scrambled egg, and pieces of potato, it’s also flavored with green onions and black pepper.

Here’s the sad part, if you want to get your paws on this tasty cup of awesome you’ll have to fly to Japan. Currently it is not available in the U.S.

Marilyn Manson has meltdown on stage

During a show in NYC on Thursday the rocker exhibited bizarre behavior and ended his show early. According to Billboard, the rocker slurred and mumbled through some half -sung monologue, while his band played some random bluesy jams underneath. The behavior apparently went on for over an hour and ended with fans chanting ‘Refund! Refund!’.

Youtube user bill hell uploaded the clip with the following caption:

Manson was so messed up he was slurring, babbling incoherently, he got mad at the audience and didn’t do his songs, he made up some “song” on the spot , babbling about the audience, and he won’t sing his tunes unless we all said we love him so much!!! He’s done!!!

The breakdown comes after several controversial moments for the artist over the past few months firing his former bassist after allegations of sexual assault and aiming a fake rifle at his San Bernandino audience.

I think it’s time to chill Marilyn. CHILL.

Brendon Urie of P!ATD confirms new music is coming on Instagram Live

Are you following Brendon Urie of P!ATD on Instagram? If not, you need to be.

See below for reason #1.

Reason #2? He is ALWAYS going live and cluing fans into what’s going on with the band! Most recently, it happened on Friday night, He went live and fans immediately started asking questions. He confirmed at one point that a new album was almost complete but he couldn’t give us a taste of it because of the ‘powers that be’.

Of course though, Urie DID give us a taste and played one tiny clip and it sounded awesome. When another fan asked his favorite P!ATD song he said that we ‘probably haven’t heard it yet’. WHAT?!

Their last album, Death of a Bachelor, was released in January of 2016. We are DUE for new music, Hopefully soon!

New Proposal Trend: Ring inside an avocado

Just when you thought you’d seen it all when it comes to ridiculous proposals. There is actually a trend rolling around social media right now of people putting there engagement rings in avocados. Now, we all love an avocado but SERIOUSLY? What kind of over-the-top hipster nonsense is this? And wouldn’t your ring get all gooey?!

Whatever. You can check out some pics below.

#Avocado proposal. What a time to be alive. @thefatjewissh — Hillary Ungson (@hillary_jeanne) February 14, 2018

Travis Barker and Wes Borland are working on a new project together

There’s something new brewing with Limp Bizkit’s guitarist Wes Borland and Travis Barker from Blink – 182. Borland shared a video of Barker playing drums for their ‘yet to be titled new project’


Borland later posted ‘wrote 7 songs in 12 hours’

I think the new project should be Limp 182 or Blink Bizkit! What do you think?

The internet is arguing about how to take eggs out of the carton

A Twitter debate was sparked of something else ridiculously stupid this week. What’s the best way to remove eggs from the carton?

There are four main arguments on this. Remove the eggs from right to left, remove them left to right, alternate sides to keep it balances, or do something weird and random like grabbing from the middle.

Honestly, I have no idea how I remove eggs from the carton as such an argument would never be allowed to take up valuable space in my brain. But feel free to weigh in.

Hey OCD folks. Do you empty the egg carton right to left, or left to right? — Brian Faughnan (@BrianFaughnan) February 3, 2018 Left to right, then I break off left half the carton when left side is empty. — Kim Ann (@ATLSAHM) February 3, 2018 Both sides so the center is balanced. There's no other logical way. — tonycorrao (@tonycorrao) February 3, 2018 Alphabetically. — Todd Hartmann (@toddhisattva) February 3, 2018 Interesting. I open the carton as if it's a book, and use eggs from the bottom to the top. It never occurred to me to open the carton as pictured above. — Katharine Mottley (@Katharine_DC) February 5, 2018 I empty it evenly from either side so that when I take it out of the fridge, it doesn’t open up and spill eggs. — Colonel Potter (@colonel_potter) February 3, 2018

There is actually an old math video online that explains what should be the best way.

Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots, Brendon Urie of PATD, and All Time Low were hanging out together

So many favorites in one picture!! Jack Barakat of All Time Low tweeted a photo of the ‘Fueled By Fam’. Yes. That’s Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots, Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco, and All Time Low ALL HANGING OUT TOGETHER.

There is no groundbreaking story behind this pic. Other than it was obviously a Fueled By Ramen gathering. We are just dying over so many amazing people in one picture.

All Time Low head on tour this spring in support their latest album  Last Young Renegade, and hopefully 2018 will be the year of more Panic! At The Disco and Twenty One Pilots!

WATCH: Paramore drop new video for ‘Rose-Colored Boy’

Paramore have debuted an awesome new music video for another song of 2017’s After Laughter, ‘Rose-Colored Boy’.

The video has an Anchorman/80’s morning news vibe and definitely does not disappoint. What do you think?!

See the bizarre list of things banned at a Foo Fighters show

Perhaps it’s because so many bands take themselves too seriously, or maybe Foo Fighters just like having fun at their shows? Whatever the reason, we are absolutely loving the hilarious list of prohibited items fans were greeted with at a Foo Fighters show. This post was made by Radio Hauraki on Facebook before the show at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.

Of course the usual things make the list, glass containers, food, air horns, etc. But then it gets really interesting. Here’s just a few:

‘Unflattering photos of Ryan Seacrest’

‘Homemade nut milks’

‘Any pencil that isn’t #2’

‘Cream magazines that do not mention Ted Nugent’

They are so great and it honestly makes us love Foo Fighters even more.

Foo Fighters will be in Tampa with the Concrete &amp; Gold tour on April 25th at the Ampitheatre. Win tickets now on the free 97x app!

Justin Timberlake explains his Prince tribute during the halftime show

We all know that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have somewhat of a bromance going on so it was only appropriate that his show was his first post-Superbowl stop.

The halftime show as a whole has gotten very mixed reviews (well, not according to Jimmy), but it’s his Prince dedication that has come under the most scrutiny.

When asked about it on the show, this was his response:

It’s a moment for me if I’m being quite honest because he’s always been the pinnacle of musicianship for me. And when we decided that the serendipity and the synergy that would be in Minneapolis, and that he’s such a special thing here aside from what he is all over the world, I just felt like I wanted to do something for this city and something for him that would just be the ultimate homage to what I consider the G.O.A.T. of musicians.

Good answer I suppose, but you can tell he’s nervous.
