The Black Keys were joined by a special guest for their performance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, as Johnny Depp traded guitar licks with frontman Dan Auerbach on 'Gold On the Ceiling' and 'Lonely Boy.'
What do you get when you put Akron's hippest indie blues rock duo together with the director of 'Trash Humpers'? The Black Keys and Harmony Korine are glad you asked, because they've just debuted the new, Korine-directed clip for the Keys' latest single, 'Gold on the Ceiling.'
In addition to their current blockbuster tour, the Black Keys are popping up all over the place. First their special appearance on Anthony Bordain’s ‘No Reservations,’ and now they’ll be making their acting debut on Comedy Central’s ‘Workaholics.’
The pop-punk / metalcore hybrid A Day to Remember and their track '2nd Sucks' just defeated veterans P.O.D. in our last Cage Match. This gives '2nd Sucks' its first Cage Match victory, with four more to go until the track can make its way into our Cage Match Hall of Fame.
The Black Keys caught some extra press when drummer Patrick Carney recently citedNickelback's success as a major factor in the decline of rock 'n' roll. In a new interview, the drummer explains himself and offers an apology almost as insulting as his initial dig.
The Black Keys delighted a nearly sold-out crowd at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena Saturday night (March 3) with hardly a single concession to the massive jump in venue size since their last headlining tour.
What can you do when you've sold more than 20 million records and the drummer for a blogger-friendly indie-rock duo tees off on you during an interview with Rolling Stone? Nickelback had to find the answer to the question recently, when Patrick Carney of the Black Keys said "Rock ‘n’ roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world" -- and to Nickelback's credit, they were able to find the humor in the situation.
Rock started losing its primacy on the charts in the '80s, and these days, the Top 40 is almost exclusively the domain of pop and hip-hop acts -- a state of affairs that has prompted a steady flow of "is rock dead?" editorials over the last couple of decades. Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney isn't willing to bury the genre just yet, but during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he singled out Nickelback as a major cause of rock's decline on the charts.
