The Edge Likes Cage the Elephant, Doesn't Get Appeal of Neutral Milk Hotel


Image Courtesy of Shahar AzranIt's a beautiful day for any band when The Edge sings your praises. This time, the lucky group is Cage the Elephant.The U2 guitarist attended Coachella earlier this year, and he counts the Kentucky quartet's performance there as one of his favorite sets from the festival."The band that I liked at Coachella was Cage the Elephant. Their commitment to the performance really blew so much of the other stuff away," he tells Rolling Stone. "They really did own it in a way that few other artists did."The Edge also lists Pixies, Broken Bells, rap duo Outkast and dubstep master Skrillex as acts he enjoyed at the festival. One band that he didn't really get, though, was cult indie band Neutral Milk Hotel."Neutral Milk Hotel, you know them? If you were sort of one of the faithful, you could sort of get excited about it. It didn't really have a universal appeal at all. And that might be its appeal," he says.For his part, Bono added that he likes the band Future Islands."That song, 'Seasons'? A miracle, that is," he says.Follow --ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Corey Taylor Reveals Title of Stone Sour Covers Album


Image Courtesy of Roadrunner RecordsEarlier this month, Stone Sour shared photos on the band's Facebook page showing them recording a covers album. Now, that album has a title: Meanwhile in Burbank."[Drummer] Roy [Mayorga]'s been slowly but surely kind of building his house studio," Corey Taylor told Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta on his podcast, The Jasta Show. "And that's why it's called Meanwhile in Burbank, because, without giving too much away, that's where Roy lives -- he lives in the [San Fernando] Valley -- so that's why we call it that. Because it's, like, that's what we're doing right now."Taylor also explained that recording a covers album is something he and Stone Sour always wanted to do."We've been talking about doing [a covers album] forever," he said. "I mean, this is something that we've been talking about since the first album came out, with Stone Sour. We've always wanted to do this. Even as people have come, people have gone, this is still something we've always come back to, and we just never had the opportunity to do it. And we just kind of said, 'Well, screw it.'"Meanwhile, Taylor's other band, Slipknot, just released their latest album, .5: The Grey Chapter, last week. The record, the band's fifth, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, making it Slipknot's second straight number one album.Follow --ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Fall Out Boy Performs "Centuries" with Suzanne Vega on "Ellen"


Image Courtesy of Crush ManagementDoes the "do do do" at the beginning of the Fall Out Boy song "Centuries" sound really familiar to you? That's because it's sampled from singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega's song, "Tom's Diner." In recognition of her contribution to the song, FOB performed "Centuries" alongside Vega during their appearance on The Ellen DeGeneris Show Wednesday.In addition to providing the song's intro, Vega harmonized with Patrick Stump during the choruses. You can watch the performance on Ellen's YouTube page.Before FOB took the stage on Ellen, host Ellen DeGeneres referred to the band as "some of the nicest people in music." DeGeneres and the band seem to have a strong connection, as she was the first person to break the news about Stump's new baby, Declan, earlier this month."Centuries" is the first single from FOB's next album, of which very few details have been released. Their other new, bombastically titled song, "Immortals" appears on the soundtrack for the Disney animated film Big Hero 6.Follow --ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Writes Music for "CSI"


Image Courtesy of Rhino RecordsTony Iommi is of course, the legendary guitarist for Black Sabbath, which still keeps him busy. That doesn't mean he doesn't have time for side projects. In a post on his Facebook page, Iommi says he's returning to the studio, and has recorded a piece for the TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. "People have been asking what exactly I’m doing at the moment, well I’m getting back in the studio having tried to make myself rest after the tours," the statement reads. "I’m writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs. I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used." "One specific piece though is for the CSI TV series that will be aired in the US on November 9th," Iommi continues. "I was asked if I’d be interested so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It’s not very long but it was different working with images rather than just music, I’d certainly be up for doing more."This isn't the first time Black Sabbath has joined forces with CSI. The band performed their song "End of the Beginning" on the show's season 13 finale, which aired May 15, 2013. Iommi and Black Sabbath plan to record their 20th and final album next year, as well as embark on a final tour.Follow --ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
