One of Coachella's biggest draws this year is the reunion of the indie outfit Postal Service, which features the synth-led sounds of Jimmy Tamborello paired with Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard's vocals. But according to a new Funny or Die video, there were actually several recognizable rockers that tried out for the job before Gibbard was selected.
On Aug. 2, 2012, rock fans in New York City found out that time travel really is possible. Taking a trip back to the mid-1990s, Webster Hall welcomed two heavy-hitters, the Toadies and Helmet. At first, it might seem that these two bands don't really fit together; Helmet is a crushing, heavy, alt-metal band while the Toadies made a name for themselves with their signature alternative rock sound. Somehow, though, these two bands - both of which had their biggest successes around the same time in the 90s - make one hell of a rock duo.
