"It's been a long and explorative journey for Hadouken! but tonight's Hottest Record sounds like they have found their natural home. Their position in bass culture is unique, bringing both the live element and credibility in the electronic music field together to create something unique." - Zane Lowe/BBC Radio 1
Today, Hadouken! premieres their latest single, “Bad Signal” on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World! Hadouken! sat down with Zane to discuss the album; joining a pantheon of musicians recently interviewed, such as Muse, Eminem, Mark Hoppus, The Prodigy and more.

Last month, Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 teamed up with Spin.com for a weekly column "Hopp on Pop: Mark Hoppus' Pick of the Week." One of the first bands he chose was none other than fun., and this week he went with another Nettwerk band:The Weepies!
When asked why The Weepies rock, Hoppus explained, ""'Rock' might not be the right word, but they definitely rule... the Weepies are folksy, indie-rocky, singery/songwritery little three-minute pieces of awesome. Quiet, acoustic, luscious and beautiful. Great late-night music."
Watch for more news from The Weepies and their upcoming new album!
Nate, Jack and Andrew of fun., who just wrapped up another successful round of tour dates, launched a brand new website this week at www.ournameisfun.com.

In his new series for Spin.com, "Hopp On Pop," Blink 182's Mark Hoppus chose fun. as his Pick of the Week today! Each week Hoppus is sharing his favorite up-and-coming bands with Spin.com readers. On why fun. rocks, Hoppus says, "These are great, great pop songs and they just take it into outer space. Hopefully we can work on something in the future because I'm so inspired listening to Nate [Ruess]. I'm really impressed -- and a little jealous of how his spectrum is so broad."
