Some Strokes, Black Keys, Johnny Depp, Ke$ha & More Pay Tribute To Tom Petty @ El Rey, Los Angeles 11/14/12

"This is a lot of Alpha energy to wrangle," Guster's Ryan Miller said in testament to Alex Levy and the Cabin Down Below Band's work last night. "This is a hard thing to organize." And that's probably true of most every tribute concert of this nature, as it has probably been true of the decade… More »

The Black Keys – “Sister” Video

Its YouTube description says that it might be a fan-created video, but the glossy new clip for the Black Keys' El Camino stomper "Sister" looks a little too big-budget for that to be a realistic possibility. The new video fetishistically follows the story of a bunch of model-looking bad girls who wake up for… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Nice job this week, video directors! There were definitely too many good videos this week. I don't know how I didn't manage to find room for the A Place To Bury Strangers video where toys melt and burn in extremely satisfying ways, or the Wild Nothing video where Michelle Williams, despite not really… More »

The Black Keys – “Little Black Submarines” Video

The Black Keys had originally intended the video for their El Camino burner "Little Black Submarines" to be some sort of narrative. But that video didn't work out, and instead they made the simplest video possible: Grainy footage of the band blazing through the song in a tiny Nashville club. It works, mostly because… More »

The Black Keys – “I Got Mine (Tobacco Remix)”

Way the hell back in 2008, Black Moth Super Rainbow member Tobacco remixed the Black Keys stomper "I Got Mine," giving it a stuttering psych-rap makeover. That remix was never released, and Tobacco eventually mined its parts and turned it into his own track "Super Gum." (That video, I should point out, i… More »

Black Keys Sue Pizza Hut, Home Depot

A little while back, we posted a Pizza Hut commercial that was soundtracked by what seemed to be a knockoff of Black Keys' "Gold On The Ceiling." To the Black Keys -- and their lawyers -- it sounded similar enough that they decided to pursue legal action; the group, as well as co-writer… More »
