• SPIN spoke to Garbage about how they rediscovered the hunger on their 2012 LP, asked Johnny Marr how he inspired Best Coast, and found out Blink-182/Angels and Airwaves singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge is still into potty humor.
• For your benefit, we counted down the five most memorable lyrics on the Loutallica album Lulu, Coldplay’s five most self-deprecating comments on The Colbert Report, and found amusing footage of Axl Rose falling down.
• Also: We gave Grouplove a rash.
