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.

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.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
