Rhapsody Summer Spectacular 2012

Welcome to Rhapsody
Play any song, anytime, anywhere.

Summer came a little early this year, in terms of both overall temperature (yikes!) and musical intensity. The radio is crackling with monster jams, the festival circuit is lighting up with any and all superstars you'd care to name, the alcohol is flowing, and clothing is being discarded at an alarming rate. Here at Rhapsody we'll be monitoring the season for the next several months, adding playlists, musings, video dispatches (we'll see you at Sasquatch!) and so forth, but here's our initial salvo, offering everything from metal-cover-art analysis to festival breakdowns to an in-depth look at all the inescapable jams you'll be cranking up all season. Let's do this.
