The wait is over: the Strokes have officially released their new single "All the Time," but not through the Seattle station that claimed to have had the track in their hands last month. Instead, BBC Radio host Zane Lowe today premiered the track from the Strokes' forthcoming album, Comedown Machine. "All the Time" glistens and shines with fret bends and springy melodies, and Julian Casablancas' vocals casually drift through a filtered layer of fuzz.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
