Exclusive: Wavves Reveal 'I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl' Cover Art

Image will appear on the band's new 'Life Sux' EP

August 25, 2011 1:10 PM ET


Who wants to meet Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl? Apparently, Wavves' Nathan Williams does, and we have an exclusive premiere of artwork from Williams' new EP Life Sux, which will feature the song "I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl." "That's Dave Grohl. It was drawn by Nick Gazin and it looks like Bradford Cox from Deerhunter with long hair," says Williams of the cover image. "Those are hobo symbols on the side, I think." The Grohl-loving first single from Life Sux premieres on MTV's new hipster comedy I Just Want My Pants Back following the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. The cut will also be available as a free download for a limited time on MTV.com.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
