Them Crooked Vultures

I believe all world leaders would agree that the solutions to our problems can be found in rock.  Wars, famine and economic woes can easily be blown away with the shredding of an electric guitar.  Pop rock can’t save us.  It’s fun to pass the time, but in the end it just causes more pain.  We need real rock. Much thanks to Them Crooked Vultures for stepping up to save mankind.

Note the crooked nature of said vulture.

The trio of Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones and Josh Homme make up the new super group known as Them Crooked Vultures.  Prior to this magical union they all served in some major heavy hitting groups.  Their musical resume lists Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Eagles of Death Metal and the Foo Fighters.  That list is rock.  The name Them Crooked Vultures is rock.  Their wickedly awesome album art is rock.  The only thing that isn’t rock is my repetition of the word rock.  But seriously, they rock the rock out of rock.  Rock.

Their self-titled album was just released world wide in mid November.  Is it a coincidence that the global economy is on a sudden upswing?  I think not. The pulse pounding tracks “No One Loves Me & Neither Do I”, “Elephants” and “Scumbag Blues” are the songs that got me out of bed this past week.  ”New Fang” (featured below) is the first single and it is gaining rock radio attention.

Now repeat after me.  Turn on Them Crooked Vultures.  Raise your right hand.  Extend your index and pinky fingers to the sky.  Place your thumb over your middle two fingers.  Thrash your head about.  Congratulations. You are on your way to saving the world.
