WATCH: Tattoo artist attempts Bird Box Challenge

The video was posted to the YouTube channel ‘ViralHog’ and will leave your skin crawling.

The #BirdBoxChallenge has become a viral sensation after the hit Netflix movie ‘Bird Box’ was released. In the movie, characters have to navigate through life blindfolded and now suddenly everyone thinks they should give it a shot. 

Spoiler alert: it’s not going well. Several people have injured themselves and a report out of Utah details a teen crashing because she tried to do it while driving. SHE WAS DRIVING BLINDFOLDED. I can’t.

Well the ante was just up’d by a tattoo artist in Brazil who attempted the #BirdBoxChallenge while putting a tattoo on someones chest.


As you can imagine, it didn’t go well.

Judah & The Lion release new single ‘Over My Head’ 

Judah & The Lion are very close to our hearts here at 97x. They’ve performed at NBT and BBQ, been a part of many Green Rooms, and even played dodge ball with us once! 

Today we are VERY excited to announce that we have a brand new single from them called ‘Over My Head’. The catchy and emotional track was released along with this statement from Judah: 

“I've felt like for most of the past 5 years I've been drowning in my own thoughts. Hard to sleep. Hard to process, consumed myself with distractions. Hard to do anything. Writing this song helped me process.”

Let us know what you think!!!

Walk The Moon release new single ‘Timebomb’

It’s been an exciting week for Walk The Moon! In addition to the announcement that they would be a part of the Bonnaroo lineup this year and a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they also just released the powerful new single ‘Timebomb’. 

With the exception of changing their profile picture and cover photo on Facebook, the band kept the debut of the single pretty quiet.

In our opinion, that’s because this killer song speaks for itself!

What do you think??

The Twitter reactions have been amazing. 

Walk The Moon WILL be returning to Tampa Bay on February 12th with a headlining show at Jannus Live! Stay with 97x for ticket hookups!


Watch all the performances here!
