Motörhead cover Bowie


Shortly before Lemmy Kilmister's passing, Motörhead recorded a cover of David Bowie's iconic song "Heroes." The song was recorded as an effort to round out a compilation of covers Motörhead had performed and recorded over the years. Under Cover will be available September 1, and will also feature renditions of songs by The Sex Pistols, Ramones, and Metallica among others. (Rolling Stone)

Just before her appearance at Lollapalooza, Lorde dropped a new video for the song "Perfect Places," the second single from Melodrama. In it, you can see Lorde singing the song in various stereotypical "perfect" places intercut with her singing into a light bulb, which is fairly evocative of David Lynch's Blue Velvet. WTF are perfect places anyway? (Consequence of Sound)
