I don't care what you think of Coldplay, this cover is fantastic and a great tribute.

October 4, 2017 on Watch Coldplay & Peter Buck Cover Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin”
So hard to pick just one with a catalog like this. I will say I'm surprised not one person mentioned "King's Highway" which is so damn good. Also, only one mention of "Time to Move On" which is one of his all-time best. God damn I miss Tom Petty.

I hardly think he's selling this because he's broke. Jimmy sold a bunch of old gear a couple months ago and he's sharing Instagram videos driving around in his Ferrari. Yamaha actually announced yesterday that they're doing a Corgan signature acoustic guitar, so between that and his signature electric with Reverend he has no need for all this Fender and Gibson gear just taking up space.

Sounds good but he's obviously singing it in a different key from the original that doesn't strain his vocals. Why wouldn't he have just done that in the past to perform the song live?

Morrissey and The Meat Puppets on the same bill? 2016 is insane!

Last time I checked, January 20th was a lot less than a "couple of months" away. :)

Whatever moniker Sean Combs is going by right now will surely end in 2015.

The real victim here is The Byrds. What did they do to piss off Mark?

I don't know why someone down-voted this comment. Anyone that has any sense of digital music could've told Neil Young that Pono was going to be a huge waste of time and money.

It's hard to say it backfired when you look at how many people are purchasing their back catalogue on iTunes. They knew that there would be a lot of people that don't want the album. I still think it was an interesting experiment.

Who says digital music needs saving? What needs to be changed is the mentality that the album is the focal point and everything done needs to ladder back to driving sales. Maybe back in the day when it cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce a record, recouping this money on sales important, but new artists are still making great music and using the internet, streaming services and direct fan relationships to have a successful music career. The biggest change that the music industry can do is realize that the days of having huge monster rock stars making millions upon millions of dollars are over and that the control over what people have access to has opened up so much more opportunity for the 99.999% of artists that never would've had a snowball's chance in hell in finding an audience with major labels controlling the airwaves and MTV.

I absolutely love Morrissey but let's call a spade a spade here - Harvest didn't botch this launch, the record just isn't that good. They promoted the hell out of that thing and any Morrissey fan that still cares knew the record was coming. What more does he want them to do? They didn't write the half-baked songs that lack hooks.

August 21, 2014 on Morrissey Details Label’s “Botched” Album Launch In Latest Screed
Has Rick Ross been in a coma for 2 years? Most of us forgot this song existed and the chances of LMFAO having anything even 1/100,000 as successful as this song is as likely of people giving a shit about Rick Ross in 5 years (assuming they still do now...do they?)

How is the drummer from Tool on this list but not Jimmy Chamberlin (Smashing Pumpkins). I hope he didn't shoot all his $ up his arms.

You need to add the new Promise Ring record, as well as the Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie Deluxe Edition.
