THE JEZABELS-PRISONER: Lead track off the lead album off Australia and rock's new leading act.
R.E.M.-ME, MARLON BRANDO, MARLON BRANDO AND I: The legendary band may have collapsed into now and split, but like this great actor they live on and on...
R.E.M.-EVERYBODY HURTS: ...and it's shows of solidarity to tortured youth like this that show just how long this groups legacy will last.
COLDPLAY-LOST Feat JAY-Z: The Rihanna collabo of their forthcoming album is big but nothing tops this crossover, epic effort from the British rockers.
THE DOORS-WAITING FOR THE SUN: More on the legendary group coming soon, until then enjoy this classic stay in 'Morrison Hotel' which became the title of another great album.
