The Black Keys will guest star on a forthcoming episode of Comedy Central's Workaholics, reports Entertainment Weekly. The rock duo will play a couple of dirtbags waiting to have a case heard in a small claims court. According to Entertainment Weekly's sources, both Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will sport "oddly long ponytails" on the show. The episode is set to air sometime this summer.

The band signed on to guest star mainly because they are big fans of the show, which follows the adventures of a trio of slackers. (The title is meant to be ironic.) The show used a bit of their recent hit "Lonely Boy" in an episode last fall.

Song Stories

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
