While there are plenty of bands that need to stop touring and give up altogether, there are even more with interesting origin stories. Some of our favorite bands have fascinating origins, and we’re here to give credit where credit is due. Although some of these bands have since lost their leading men to depression, drugs and the curse of the 27 Club, we still have a few of them left running around with great bits of rock history in their leather britches and long hair.
When it comes to the best trends, we’re kind of like the all-knowing Yoda. Whether it’s hot girls we wish we’d lost our virginity to or the songs of sex we definitely lost our virginity to, we’ve got it covered. That, and obsolete trends and bands we wish would’ve stayed dead. That’s why we’re spearheading a movement to bring back the ’70s bush and important girl trends of that nature.
Do you ever flip through the channels and run into those shows you forgot you gave half your life for? Of course not, since having cable is stupid and pointless. Luckily, we’re here to fill in the holes of all the lost shows of your fading memory. From Celebrity Deathmatch to Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, along with a number of nostalgic morning shows you used to glue yourself to the TV for, we’re serving up a lot more than nostalgia: We’ve got a bit of brotherly love for you, too.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
