Supergroup news!

• Them Crooked Vultures (the Zeppelin-Foo Fighters-Queen of the Stoneage supergroup) put their full album streaming on YouTube today.

For those interested, here it be:

I haven't decided if I like it or not. As usual, this supergroup is not as good as Zeppelin or the Foo Fighters (Point one: no one is as good as Zeppelin. Point two: I don't really like Queens of the Stoneage that much).

The album is out Nov. 17.

• Monsters of Folk (the Bright Eyes-My Morning Jacket-M. Ward supergroup) is still doing it's thang.

They were on Jimmy Fallon the other night:

I'm not a huge fan of that song and I question why the hell they'd play it on national television. You'd think they'd go for something up-tempo that might get viewers interested in the song instead of this goofy, Yim Yames slow jam. But whatever... I'm not involved in these decisions.

And I can't remember if I've posted it in this space or not, but they did a kickass version of Kiss' "Detroit Rock City" on Halloween. Dressed as Kiss. No joke. Watch it.

• In other supergroup news, Chickenfoot continues to be, well, Chickenfoot.

Never heard of them? Yeah, you're not alone. It's Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony from Van Halen, Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joe Satriani.

Weird combo, right? They're alright. It basically sounds like Joe Satriani was hired as Sammy Hagar's backing guitarist. That's about it.
