So you’re one of the biggest bands on the planet, and a new movement in rock music has people thinking you’re starting to sound passé. What do you do?
Release an album of punk covers, and name it after that time the old drummer tried to sue the band… Sure, why not?
Just about a week and a half until the new album.
At first, this track may come across as a typical breakup song, but it still manages to have that Fresh Prince air of positivity.
After all the venting about a lost relationship, Will Smith wraps it all up by saying it’s all good. He’s moved on. Live and learn.
Of all the songs Them Crooked Vultures produced, this one always seemed to have the biggest John Paul Jones influence. Sort of a more bluesy and upbeat companion to Trampled Under Foot from Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti.
Here’s one of my favourite songs from Dinosaur Jr.’s fourth album, Green Mind.
One of the few White Stripes songs featuring Meg White on vocals.
It seems like a pretty appropriate choice for today, after I took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge fundraiser.
The ballad of a twenty-something who doesn’t quite have it all figured out.
The robotic uprising hasn’t happened, but my computer’s dead, so we’ll see how well I can keep up these updates.
Fittingly enough, this song packs a big nostalgia bomb for me. I lost track of how many nights my friends and I spent together, playing Rock Band for hours on end.
I picked this song up in a random sampling of dance tracks from an iTunes mix last year, and it took a few listens before I realized that this was in fact “the” Donna Lewis.
