Mark Lanegan has some good friends. The former Screaming Trees frontman's 2004 solo track "One Hundred Days" has been covered by his occasional bandmates in Queens of the Stone Age, and Josh Homme and company went acoustic on the touching, aching song.

As Antiquiet notes, the recording came from a three-song acoustic set for the French radio station OuiFM. "One Hundred Days" was originally on Lanegan's 2004 album Bubblegum, which featured contributions from Homme, and it's a nice nod to Lanegan, who guested on Queens of the Stone Age's recent album . . .Like Clockwork.

“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.”
