Fox News Says Radiohead Fans Are Strange, Malnourished, And Sad

Fox News' Greg Gutfield is a big music head -- he's had Stephen Malkmus, Fucked Up, and Ariel Pink on his show before -- and every year, he invites people on to discuss the new class of nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Radiohead, patron saints of skinny indie kids, are up…

Unreleased Lorde & WHY? Collaboration “Sway” Surfaces

In 2014, WHY?'s Yoni Wolf recorded a song with Lorde.

Stream Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Previously Unreleased Demo For “Black Tongue”

With all the remakes and sequels being made recently, it’s fair for the "remember when" nostalgic spiral to sometimes take over. Maybe you were there one of the first times Karen O stuck a microphone in her mouth. Perhaps you only know about Yeah Yeah Yeahs because of Lemonade. Either way, the reissue of their…

Watch Mac DeMarco On Charlie Rose

Mac DeMarco, the indie rock court jester who once stripped naked on stage and sang U2's "Beautiful Day" with a drumstick up his butt, would at first glance seem at odds with venerable PBS talk-show host Charlie Rose in terms of personal aesthetic. But DeMarco's recent This Old Dog was his most mature outing yet,…

Makeness – “Loud Patterns”

Kyle Molleson is the Scottish producer Makeness. Since his 2015 debut EP, Rogue, Makeness has signed on with Secretly Canadian and today releases his new single, "Loud Patterns."

Marilyn Manson – “SAY10? Video (Feat. Johnny Depp) (NSFW)

26 years ago, Johnny Depp starred in the late Tom Petty's classic video for "Into The Great Wide Open," playing a charismatic would-be rock star in a video that was full of famous faces.

Watch The National Cover The Ramones In Queens

Most Ramones fans tend to believe that Joey Ramone wrote the Ramones' 1981 song "The KKK Took My Baby Away" about Johnny Ramone; it's a dig at Joey's right-wing bandmate for stealing his girlfriend. But there are other theories out there, and one theory is that Joey actually wrote the song about Donald Trump, who…

Watch The Killers Cover Two Tom Petty Songs At ACL

Tee Grizzley – “Win”

But Tee has already become a symbol of the sort of bracing, intense street-rap…

Doe Paoro – “Blind” (Hercules And Love Affair Cover)

Back in 2008, Hercules & Love Affair made their name with "Blind," an absolute monster of a disco-house single with a euphoric vocal from ANOHNI. The singer-songwriter Doe Paoro has long been a fan of the song, and now she's released her own version of it, a plaintive and minimal piano-ballad reimagining that seizes on…

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Another day done, another week over. We've been bumping Bhad Bhabie's "Hi Bich" at Stereogum HQ and no offense but... it's kinda good?

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It's not on this list, but "Hi Bish" -- the new video from Bhad Bhabie, née Danielle Bregoli, née "Cash Me Ousside" girl -- fucking rules. She sits in the back of a white convertible, which is being pulled by a while horse, which is in turn being led by a leather gimp. She wears…
