November 3, 2009 5:55 PM ET

As Them Crooked Vultures inch closer to the November 17th release of their debut, the supergroup is getting more generous with its recorded music. Today, TCV dropped a new track, "Mind Eraser, No Chaser," on iTunes as a free download. It's another heavy gem from Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones, kicking off with two counter-riffing guitar parts before a thumping bassline and Grohl's heavy hitting jump into the mix.

Check out rock's most famous supergroups, from Cream to Audioslave.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, the Vultures released their first official single "New Fang" last week after a testing out their material at a handful of high-voltage gigs in the U.S. and Europe this summer. The band will embark on their first tour of the West Coast starting in Los Angeles on November 17th.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
