Judah & the Lion combines Foo Fighters and mandolins with cover of "Monkey Wrench"

Judah & the Lion has shared a cover of the Foo Fighters song "Monkey Wrench." The "Take It All Back" rockers recorded the cover for pop culture website A.V. Club's A.V. Undercover series. While "Monkey Wrench" is one of the hardest-rocking songs in the Foos discography -- which certainly isn't short on hard-rocking songs -- Judah takes a softer, slower approach with their version of the track, using a mandolin and banjo to replicate its main riff. Judah & the Lion is currently on tour opening for Incubus and Jimmy Eat World. They'll launch their own headlining tour in the…

"American Valhalla" explores the personalities, anxieties & music of Iggy Pop and Josh Homme

American Valhalla, the documentary about Iggy Pop and Josh Homme's collaborative album Post Pop Depression, will screen in U.S. theaters today. As director Andreas Neumann explains, the film was made in the same manner as the album: with no concrete idea how it would wind up.

"I guess we took the same approach with the film, as well." Neumann co-directed American…
