Los Angeles pop-punkers Roll the Tanks wrote their latest single, "Goodnight Jimmy Lee," on the day garage-rock hero Jay Reatard died last year. "The song pays tribute to his greatness but also speaks of my own shortcomings seen through his eyes," says frontman Danny Carney. "We had written and recorded it before he even reached the morgue. He would have appreciated that, hopefully." The single is in stores now, but you can download the track for free here.
