What happened to Rolling Stone's website?

Mashable reported earlier today that RollingStone.com may have forgot to renew their domain name. A pretty mundane story really, that only gave us this light chuckle of this here screenshot I took of the missing website from this afternoon and a situation that I'm sure will be corrected ASAP.

Now, why their site had this FAIL is still a mystery but here's a couple theories I've been kicking around about it.

- Their 1 millionth story about Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix or some other rock legend triggered the 'We get it, they're great' virus.

- Angry hackers finally had enough of chest-naked guys on the cover! Bring back to hot chicks. (of age though, no wants to fantasize about a 16 year old).

- Gucci Mane called in a hit from prison after they called him a new artist in a recent issue. Come on RS, "So Icey" was a hit in 2004.

- They haven't broke a hot, new artist in a decade. The site crashed from old news.

- Creative Loafing tried to be David to their Goliath?

- Someone got high and hit the red button!

- Someone went into a liberal rage and accidentally hit the red button! (We're lefties too, don't worry)

- They let one of the interns from their old MTV show do more than what they transcribe interviews.

- Someone attempted to publish a post saying the Black Eyed Peas were the biggest supergroup of the past decade. (Will.I.Am is that dude though)

- Photos of a Miley, Taylor, dude from Twilight sextape leaked to their site before TMZ and killed the entire internet. Jonas' couldn't be reached for comment.
