    Watch Foo Fighters' Global Citizen Festival Set Plus Neil Young Superjam

    Good things can come out of being in New York City's Central Park after dark. A star-studded lineup of mostly rock-leaning acts took to the Great Lawn on Saturday as part of the Global Citizen Festival, dedicated to fighting global poverty, and footage from the event has surfaced online (via the Audio Perv). Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K'naan performed in front of a crowd of more than 60,000, according to the New York Times. John Legend also made an unannounced appearance to perform John Lennon's "Imagine."Watch Foo Fighters' full, muscular set below, complete with some of the arena-ready post-grunge band's biggest hits, including "Everlong," "My Hero," and "Learn to Fly." As frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl mentioned, the set was the last Foo Fighters have scheduled for a while, which is typical of bands between albums.

  • Death Grips No Love Deep Web

    Download Death Grips' Frenzied 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' LP

    Death Grips have been fairly quiet, at least by the Sacramento noise-rap group's chaotic standards, since unveiling an addictive interactive video for their 2012 major-label debut The Money Store's Salt-n-Pepa-flavored salvo "I've Seen Footage." But now the album that they scrapped their summer dates to finish, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, has arrived.Death Grips claim their label, Sony subsidiary Epic, hadn't heard the album yet.

  • Soundgarden's Chris Cornell

    Chris Cornell Confirms New Soundgarden Scorcher Isn't an Eminem Song

    The arrival of Soundgarden's thunderous new single "Been Away Too Long" on the Internet this week brought about many reactions. Grown men wept. Children hid under their beds. Skeptical music bloggers rejoiced that what they were hearing sounded quite a bit more toothsome than the the grunge-rock survivors' first new song since reuniting, Avengers blockbuster "Live to Rise." Nobody, probably, thought about Eminem.Nobody, that is, except Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who actually engaged in a fairly astute bit of pop criticism in a radio interview yesterday as he contrasted his lyrical approach with that of the real Slim Shady.

    Christina Aguilera's 'Your Body' Video Puts Violence In Its Sex

    After a slow trickle of seconds-long teasers, Christina Aguilera has at last unleashed the music video for her comeback banger "Your Body." And without giving away too much, it's fair to say the video gives new meaning to the term "femme fatale." An opening warning tells us that "no men were harmed in the making of this video," but for some reason Xtina has an online psychic who correctly assures her she has a "killer week." Blue splatter and pink glitter ensue, and in the end Aguilera is watching Lucille Ball on an old TV, as if to assure us, "Hey, this is comedy!" It might take us a few more viewings to get the joke, but at least there's enough amazing absurdity going on to make that prospect sound entertaining."Your Body" is the first single off Aguilera's seventh studio album, Lotus, due November 13 on RCA.

  • Animal Collective

    Animal Collective's Deakin Explains Sticky Kickstarter Situation (Sort Of)

    You know what they say: There's no such thing as a free trip to Mali. The recent back-and-forth between Amanda Palmer and Steve Albini over crowd-sourcing ended with Palmer announcing she would pay her musicians. But it also shifted focus toward other artists crowd-funding musical projects, including a Kickstarter campaign by Animal Collective's Deakin (government name: Josh Dibb) that raised almost $26,000 three years ago.As Pitchfork reports, the money was supposed to fund a trip to perform at a festival in Mali, along with the making of a book and CD, plus a charitable donation to a Mali nonprofit group that fights slavery. That was back in 2009, but donors have criticized Dibb for failing to deliver the promised Kickstarter rewards or to give much reason for the delay. Dibb told Pitchfork there's been, well, a bit of a misunderstanding.

  • Glenn Beck and Muse's Matthew Bellamy

    Muse Say Their Music Keeps Getting 'Hijacked' By Conservatives

    Glenn Beck must be giddy. The right-wing talker's long-beloved band Muse will appear as the musical guests on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, and their sixth album The 2nd Law is streaming now. Less happy about Muse's embrace by Beck and other conservatives, however, are the bandmembers themselves.Muse's drummer Dom Howard has previously slammed Beck as "a crazy right-winger," and frontman Matt Bellamy is an interview to be published in the Observer on Sunday, based on an excerpt posted by the Guardian. "In the U.S. the conspiracy theory subculture has been hijacked by the right to try to take down people like Obama and put forward right-wing libertarianism," Bellamy is quoted as saying.

  • Metallica Cliff Burton

    Metallica Honor Late Bassist With Free 1984 Show Download

    Cliff Burton joined Metallica on bass in time for their landmark 1983 debut album Kill Em All, and he died in a tragic European tour bus accident three years later (see our Metallica: Three Decades of Metal Mayhem photo gallery). To commemorate the anniversary of Burton's death on September 27, 1986, the surviving band members have posted a free download of a nearly hour-long concert the group played in France in November 1984.As Blabbermouth points out, last night Metallica posted a photo of Burton on the band's official website with the caption "We miss you." A separate post adds, "While you're remembering Cliff on the 26th anniversary of his passing, give a listen to this free download from the 'Ride The Lightning' tour." Have at it, people: Download here.Metallica's November 22, 1984 - Toulouse, France @ Le Riff track list:1.

    Azealia Banks Unveils Chic 'Luxury' Video Amid Producer Twitter Beef

    It was probably inevitable that Azealia Banks' dependence on borrowed backing tracks would get her into trouble once the volatile element of money got involved. Veteran producer and Sepalcure member Travis Stewart, under the name Machinedrum, has been one of the current SPIN cover star's more dependable beat-makers, contributing two instrumentals to her 1991 EP and making multiple appearances on her Fantasea mixtape.

  • The Beatles, again

    The Beatles Finally Reissue Remastered LPs on Vinyl

    In 1996 Sean Connery thriller The Rock, Nicolas Cage's character spends $600 on a Beatles LP. When asked by a co-worker why he didn't just spend $13 on the then-popular medium known as compact disc, Cage responds presciently. "Well, first of all, it's because I'm a Beatlemaniac," he offers, deadpan as always. "And second, these sound better."Cage's character should be pleased on November 13, when, according to the New York Times, the Beatles' remastered stereo albums will be reissued on vinyl. EMI previously released remastered versions on CD and as downloads in 2009. The 180-gram vinyl editions of all 12 of the Beatles' British albums and their two-disc Past Masters set of singles and non-album tracks will be available separately or as a box set.
