Oasis' Noel Gallagher Rocks in a Shower for (Red)Wire

April 29, 2009 1:58 PM ET

If you want Oasis' Noel Gallagher to rock in a bathroom, evidently all you have to do is ask nicely. The singer-guitarist performed a version of the band's "Waiting for the Rapture" (see partial clip, above) in the loo at New York's Madison Square Garden for (Red)Wire, the download service aligned with Bono's (Product)Red campaign, which raises money for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. (Red)Wire, which went live in December 2008, delivers subscribers one weekly download for $5 per month. This week's issue includes the Oasis tune plus Metric's "Gimme Sympathy" from their new album Fantasies.

“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.”
