New Jersey's Gaslight Anthem paid tribute to one of their favorite bands when recording a session for iTunes. "I think Pearl Jam is the best rock band of my generation, and to have one of their songs be played by my own band is an honor for me," says frontman Brian Fallon. "We chose 'State' because it's the song we felt that could've been a Gaslight song had we had the gift of that song come to us. It's a great song about staying faithful." You can pre-order Gaslight Anthem's iTunes session, planned for a December 13th release, here.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
