Die like a rocker!

Introduced in 2010 and already on its second-generation model, the Kiss Kasket, at just $3,299, featuring "iconic KISS images," represents the ultimate in KISS-inspired luxury. But don't just take the band's word for it: Pantera's Dimebag Darrell was buried in one in 2004. (He had requested a Kasket in his will.)

Props if you succeeded in taking this seriously.
  • Props if you succeeded in taking this seriously.

With 100 percent of your recommended daily Vitamin C, this energy drink from the Nellyville days seems downright wholesome by today's celebrity beverage standards. Besides, in the helpful song "Pimp Juice," Nelly explains that the drink/magical potion is equal-opportunity, as "Pimp juice is color blind/You find it work on all color, creeds, and kinds/From ages 50 right down to 9."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
