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.

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."
