A surprise lockdown-recorded LP with a huge tour got 2023 off to a very fast start.

72 Seasons marked Metallica's first album since 2016's Hardwired ... to Self-Destruct and explored how childhood trauma impacts the rest of our lives. Dates in support of the project featured Pantera, Mammoth WVH and Greta Van Fleet.

Iggy Pop returned with Every Loser, which features Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith and Guns N' RosesDuff McKagan. Sessions were overseen by Andrew Watt, who recently produced and co-wrote Ozzy Osbourne's Patient Number 9 then helmed the Rolling Stones' long-awaited studio comeback.

Steve Vai's "straight-ahead rock album" titled Vai / Gash featured shelved recordings with singer Johnny "Gash" Sombretto from 1991. The Smashing PumpkinsATUM, a "rock opera in three acts," was billed as the sequel to both 1995's Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and 2000's Machina/Machines of God.

The latest installment in Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series was the five-CD or 10-LP Fragments – Time Out of Mind Sessions set, which focused on recordings from 1996-97. Highlights included two discs of outtakes and alternate takes, plus a disc of live performances.
