The Meat Puppets' 13th album Lollipop continues the long-running psychedelic band's hot streak since returning from a hiatus brought on by bassist Cris Kirkwood's struggles with addiction. "Damn Thing," one of the new record's highlights, is a fine showcase for the trio's signature blend of crunchy guitars and laid back vocal harmonies. Lollipop is in stores on April 12th, but you can download the track now with the widget below.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
