The Pixies masterpiece Doolittle had its 20th anniversary in April 2009 — and in fact, the band's follow-up LP Bossanova just turned 20 this past August — so the reunited rockers are giving fans a free download of a live EP featuring four songs recorded during the band's recent tour. Head over to the Pixies site to download three tracks from the album Rolling Stone named as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All-Time — "Gouge Away," "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and "Crackity Jones" — plus the b-side "Dancing the Manta Ray."

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."
