Ron Jeremy

Ron Jeremy, more commonly known as the Hedgehog because of his bristly rotundity, has given hope and inspiration to many an awkward adolescent nervous about their newfound sexuality. Because, whether you’re male, female, straight, gay, or bi-curious, your first experience with pornography probably involved the Hedgehog. And the first thing you thought when you saw Jeremy shtupping some sexy, smutty babe was “Damn, if that guy can get laid, I’m golden.” He’s no Adonis, but that’s what’s so lovable about him: Jeremy never stops being the quintessential Regular Joe. He’ll be pimping his memoir, Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Show Business, at the amazingly ill-named Virgin Megastore. (Duncan Scott Davidson)

Is Jucifer the name of a Melvins song? Like its riff-wielding forebears, this Athens, Ga., duo – composed of Amber Valentine and Ed Livengood – whips up a head-banging concoction of syrupy noise metal and roaring feedback that gives new meaning to the word doom. On their new album, If Thine Enemy Hunger (Relapse), the pair mingle brutal-sounding guitars with hyper drum urgency and grunge-afflicted hooks with dreamy vocals. Hell, King Buzzo must be shitting splintered drumsticks by now. (Chris Sabbath)
