My Morning Jacket Thrill With Epic Bonnaroo Set, Capped With Motley Crue Cover

June 14, 2008 12:51 PM ET

With a steady stream of rain coming down, My Morning Jacket hit the stage at Bonnaroo around midnight Friday night, and didn't make their final exit until after 4 a.m., 35 songs later. The Jacket played cuts from their hot new disc, Evil Urges — among them, "I'm Amazed," "Sec Walkin" and "Highly Suspicous" — and dipped into their catalog with "Gideon." Metallica's Kirk Hammett joined in for a blistering solo on "One Big Holiday," and the band also dipped in some funk classics like Kool & the Gang's "Get Down On It," James Brown's "Cold Sweat" and Funkadelic's "Hit It and Quit It." The thousands who soldiered on until the end, undaunted by rain, caught a magical performance of Mötley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home," featuring comedian/dancer Zach Galifianakis dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
