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

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
