In an effort to "beat the Master to it," comedian Tim Heidecker has released his own epic song, "Titanic," inspired by Bob Dylan. Last week, Dylan revealed that his upcoming album Tempest will feature a 14-minute title track about the sunken ship. Heidecker's take is 15 minutes, 11 seconds long and accompanied by a video.

Heidecker's version is available now through his website. Bob Dylan's Tempest is set for release on September 11th.

“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."
