Last year a slew of actors flew down to Georgia with director Randall Miller to film CBGB, the upcoming movie about the New York City club that launched the careers of seminal punk acts including Patti Smith, the Ramones, Television and the Talking Heads.

Behind the Scenes of 'CBGB'

Over on the CBGB Facebook page, you can check out the cast of characters – which includes Alan Rickman as the club's owner Hilly Kristal – in the film's first poster, and now you can also take an exclusive first look at Malin Akerman as Blondie's Debbie Harry and the Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop. No release date has been set for CBGB yet, though it should open sometime this year.

Song Stories

“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."
