Thought for the day: What song will you have at your funeral?

Do you know what song you want playing at your funeral? The piece that will play as the final curtain closes? My Way is very popular; Time To Say Goodbye ,Wind Beneath My Wings and Unforgettable are real favourites too but what about having something a little different? Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life, that always brings a smile but some people really push the boat out and I did once have to question if one family were really sure that they wanted Elvis Presley singing Burning Love as their loved one departed! "Oh yes," they replied, "he would have been so happy to think of all the smiles and horrified faces."

Concert preview: Volbeat, 5FDP set to show off heavy metal shapeshifting

At first glance, the bands Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch don't seem to have a whole lot in common, other than sharing space under the generic umbrella of "heavy metal." The former originated in Denmark and features a melodic fusion of hard rock, punk, country and rockabilly, with lead singer and guitarist Michael Poulsen being raised on a musical diet of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash before going on to front a death metal outfit in the early '90s.
