    WATCH: Jimmy Eat World's Cryptic New Video

    Jimmy Eat World have earned a reputation as earnest emo-rockers, but in their new video for "My Best Theory" (from their new album Invented, out Sept. 28) the Arizona quartet prove they've got a dark, awesomely deranged side as well. Check it out below! In the clip, two masked females (whose costumes recall Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut) are enslaved by three laser gun-toting, duck-billed robots -- but they soon make their escape! The girls are chased through the woods and some hot Sapphic action may or may not take place -- you'll need to use your imagination -- before they're discovered (and exterminated) by the 'bots. Jimmy Eat World are currently on the road in support of their new album. Read SPIN's report from their opening date in Atlanta here. WATCH: Jimmy Eat World, "My Best Theory"

    Jay-Z Hypes 'Decoded,' His First-Ever Book

    For years, fans have debated the meaning of Jay-Z's lyrics, but now they'll get the complete backstories on some of his most iconic songs in his first book, Decoded, which hits stores on November 16. In the book, Jay-Z narrates his life story by breaking down 36 of his songs, which will be accompanied by illustrations. Jay's motives for publishing the book may be personal, but he hopes Decoded will prove that hip-hop is a fine-art form like poetry. "When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things," Jay-Z explained in a statement. "The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics — not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC — are poetry if you look at them closely enough.

    WATCH: Soundgarden's Animated Sci-Fi Clip

    On the upcoming greatest hits collection Telephantasm, Soundgarden will include a previously unreleased circa-1992 cut "Black Rain," and the band has prepped a wild new sci-fi video to go with the song. The video was directed by Metalocalypse co-creator Brendon Small with creative input from Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil. "He had key words -- monsters; big, huge, wide shots; death clock; getting them in there somewhere, and Soundgarden," Small told Spinner.
