    Praise God, Drake Gets Emoji Tattoo, High Fives All Around

    Per an Instagram post by Los Angeles tattoo artist Doctor Woo, it seems Drake has an emoji inked on his bicep now. And no, it's not of any Lil B Basedmoji or that guy Flan Emoji from Odd Future. It's that high five/prayer hands emoji. You know the one. (If not, just see below.) Doctor Woo posted the image on his Instagram Wednesday, as Buzzfeed reports, tagging Drake so we know it's him: @champagnepapi good times, thanks for the visit #jimjoe6 #wordsofwisdom #shamrocksocialclub   The Toronto rapper also tatted the number "6" — presumably to celebrate his new album to be called Views From the 6 — as well as the sentence, "Everything happens for a reason sweet thing." We'd say he'll probably regret this but after that Forbes list came out earlier this week, it's pretty obvious he's too rich to regret anything. 

  • The Who Be Lucky Song Hits 50 Years

    The Who Shout Out Daft Punk on Their New Song, 'Be Lucky'

    The Who turn 50 this year and to mark the occasion, co-founders Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are releasing a two-disc retrospective collection called Who Hits 50! celebrating their half-century together. Also included: a brand new track called "Be Lucky" — their first in eight years — which shouts out "Get Lucky" guys Daft Punk, weirdly (kind cutely).Otherwise, the song is everything one would expect from the band at this point — Daltry is 70, Townshend is 69 — which is to say, classic rock powered by the band's signature tones and gruff belting, plus enough balls to keep you from writing off these "talkin' 'bout my generation" senior citizens. In fact, the track's an ode to making your own success, with Daltry singing you should "get it from a bottle or squeeze it from a stone."He also throws in a number of somewhat bizarre band references from over their half-century.

  • Ty Segal Covers David Bowie Day Chicago

    Watch Ty Segall Celebrate 'David Bowie Day' With Cover Songs

    David Bowie is already a lot of things, but he recently became something new: a day in Chicago. Yes, Tuesday, September 23, was "David Bowie Day," as declared by Mayor Rahm Emanuel because: he's one of rock's greatest minds; Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art opened its David Bowie Is exhibition that same day; everything he's done for the rights of long-haired men; and why not?Luckily for everyone involved, Ty Segall just so happened to be riding through town on that holiday and took the opportunity to bust out some rip-roaring Bowie covers, as Pitchfork reports, including bits of "Ziggy Stardust", "Suffragette City", and "Queen Bitch."Watch fan-filmed videos above and below:

    Hear Marcus Mumford Sing a 'Lost' Bob Dylan Song

    After getting the first taste of the T Bone Burnett-produced The New Basement Tapes — wherein notables like Jim James, Elvis Costello, and Marcus Mumford pay tribute to Bob Dylan by giving life to a collection of lost lyrics dating back to his legendary "Basement Tapes sessions" — it was obvious fans were in store for a treat.Here to validate that assumption is an all-star team that includes Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith and Carolina Chocolate Drops' Rhiannon Giddens.

    Morrissey's New Shirt: 'Be Kind to Animals Or I'll Kill You'

    Morrissey, friend of the animals, has made it clear by now that he doesn't care so much for humanoids. And now you can join Morrissey in his four-legged friend appreciation with new merchandise offered in the singer's new online shop. The most potentially offensive of the bunch is a T-shirt that states bluntly, "BE KIND TO ANIMALS OR I'LL KILL YOU." It's conveniently available in both navy blue and also cardinal red (see below).In other corners of the "Mporium," as the store is called, you can find a shirt with an illustrated Morrissey flashing his knuckles and the words "MEAT FREE" tattooed on his hands, as Pitchfork reports.

  • Cibo Matto Deja Vu Video

    Cibo Matto Digitize the Streets of New York in Their 'Deja Vu' Video

    Though Cibo Matto can claim Japan or N.Y.C. (or both) as home, the duo is obviously of another dimension. Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda recently returned after 15 years, first with the swaggering single "MFN" and then the awesomely trippy album Hotel Valentine, and now they deliver a stylish bubblegum pop-meets-digital-disaster (intentional) of a video for "Deja Vu." In the Jean Claude Billmaier-directed clip, the duo lounge about a bizarrely changing hotel room, cruise around city streets, and otherwise make us wonder, "Is it real, or is it a dream?" Watch above and decide for yourself.Cibo Matto are on tour now, and Nels Cline is in their band.

  • Beastie Boys Monster Energy Universal Lawsuit Video

    Monster Energy Is Getting Sued by Universal Now Too for Stealing Beastie Boys Songs

    When surviving Beastie Boys Michael "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz successfully sued Monster Energy drink for $1.7 million in June for copyright infringement and false endorsement, the side effects were multifaceted.While that green caffeinated sludge has been linked with physical reactions like stomach aches, jitters, or even death, the company's unauthorized use of "Sabotage," "Pass the Mic," "Make Some Noise," "So What'cha Want," and "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun" for a four-minute snowboard clip generated some interesting headlines.

  • Pink Floyd The Endless River Song Preview Album Art Track List

    Pink Floyd Preview 'The Endless River,' an Album 20 Years in the Making

    More than two decades after the release of Pink Floyd's last album, The Division Bell, the band suddenly finds itself amidst a rollout for a new release called The Endless River. Below, you'll find a 30-second clip teasing what's in store. The album art (above) and track listing (below) for the new effort are out too, and drummer Nick Mason says the LP also functions as a "tribute" to keyboardist Rick Wright, who died in 2008.The four-sided album is entirely instrumental save one song called "Louder Than Words," which has lyrics by guitarist David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson, according to an announcement earlier this week. It was produced by Gilmour, Roxy Music guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera, Killing Joke founding member and bassist Martin Glover (a.k.a.

    Kendrick Lamar Follows 'i' With a Six-Minute Freestyle

    When Kendrick Lamar dropped his new single "i" Tuesday, he stopped by Los Angeles rap station Power 106 that same day to help spread the word via Big Boy's Neighborhood and wound up delivering some extra freestyle verses for the radio audience.Seen above, the roughly eight-minute rap ranges from deep introspection to bombastic boasting delivered, as Consequence of Sound reports, over a mix of beats including Jay Z's "Who You Wit" and James Brown's "The Boss." K-Dot smiled through the entire thing.But the session didn't end there, as Big Boy got on the mic to deliver his own version of Lamar's origin story, hilariously taking credit for the Compton hero's rise. In the accompanying interview, the two got into some key details of the former SPIN cover star's rise to stardom.Lamar says he was shocked when Dr. Dre name dropped his name as the next rapper to inherit the throne.
