[Watch] Cage The Elephant - "Aberdeen" Feat. Dave Grohl Live in LA

We saw some grainy footage last year from Cage The Elephant featuring Dave Grohl on drums, but today courtesy of the band themselves we get a live video with HQ sound. It features some footage from on stage and in the crowd at a recent LA date. For the track "Aberdeen", Cage have Dave doing his impeccable thing behind the kit. I always feel like Dave's about to do one of his crazy drum fills like in Them Crooked Vulture's "Nobody Loves Me and Neither Do I". (Un)Fortunately for Cage The Elephant he puts in a to be expected great beat for them and now we can enjoy it too. 

Rumour has it that at the show they also performed a nice sounding rendition of Talking Heads' classic "Psycho Killer". That's yet to surface though. Sad face.

[Listen] Cage The Elephant - "Dr. Dr. Dr."

Since their debut in 2008, Kentucky rockers Cage The Elephant have been playing a song, which has now been titled "Dr. Dr. Dr." or "Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Help Me, Help Me, Help Me," during their live sets, despite it not being on any of their albums or EPs. Now, that song has been given a proper name and proper studio time, and a cut of the studio recording made its way onto YouTube, so check out the 2-minutes of CTE splendour below.

[News] Bob Dylan Tribute Album: 'Chimes of Freedom' Tracklist Feat. QOTSA, My Morning Jacket, Pete Townshend & More

In celebration of Amnesty International's 50th Anniversary, a collection of Bob Dylan covers has been put together and is set for release in January on the 24th to be precise. The full tracklist has appeared and it's frikkin' crazy! Like good crazy and absurd crazy, you know?! It'll be a 72 track monster compiling 4 discs and a host of talent from the world of music. It also throws a few weird number sin but hey, you gotta take the good with the bad. 

Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International will include covers from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age who take on "Outlaw Blues" from 1965's Bringing It All Back Home. My Morning Jacket tackle "You’re A Big Girl Now", Mariachi El Bronx add their fine acoustic goodness to "Love Sick". The Who’s Pete Townshend tackles the crooner number "Corrina, Corrina" and Cage the Elephant do "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll". Now, thrown into the mix we have Miley Cyrus covering Blood on the Tracks' "You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go". The one I really don't want to see covered in glitter and crap is "Don't Think Twice it's Alright" but that's been taken up by none other than Ke$ha. KE$SHA!? But still, this compilation will definitely be worth a listen. The full track listing of pure awesome can be found after the jump via CoS.
