The punk group Hunters get wild with stream-of-consciousness glee on "Narcissist," an early taste from their self-titled debut album on Mom + Pop. Packed with battling vocals, heavy guitars and raucous speed, the track offers a taste of the Brooklyn band's rowdy live shows.

"The songs lyrics are a stream-of-consciousness thing that Izzy [Almeida] and I wrote together with no real set theme," singer/guitarist Derek Watson tells Rolling Stone. "It wasn't until afterwards that it came to mean something much more to us."

Hunters are building on strong momentum: their first EP was produced by ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, and the band has shared bills with Kurt Vile and the Kills. Hunters is set for release on October 1st.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
