The Rolling Stones Are Back with “Doom and Gloom,” a New Song About Zombies
Posted by Newson 10/11/2012 at 12:44 PM
Fun fact: The Rolling Stones have been around 13 years longer than Justin Bieber’s mom has been alive! Still, though their days of pop relevance ended a few decades ago, it’s fun to see them still alive and kicking.
As a preview for their upcoming 50th-anniversary greatest-hits album, the Stones dropped “Doom and Gloom” this morning, their first new song in six years. By the weird standards we judge new releases from Boomer rock gods by (“Is it as good as their old stuff? No, of course not, that’s unfair. Does it at least sound kind of like their old stuff? Just please no dubstep or anything.”) “Doom and Gloom” is a success, with an ominous vibe that’s slightly reminiscent of “Gimme Shelter” without being too derivative. And it’s about zombies, so, you know, they’re still in touch with modern pop-cultural sensibilities. We can honestly say it’s the best thing the Stones have released this decade!
Also, we dig the animation in the lyrics video. That’s how you do the format right:

Paul put Eleanors on the map, yo.
We've got our first John Mayer diss track, and it is MEAN.
Even Mr. Movin' On is smiling.
We're getting the strong feeling Mr. Bieber does not care for paparazzi.
Why did Lil Wayne sully the honor of this great nation?
Vicky just dropped her first post-Victorious single and it's pretty good.
Just like The Pussycat Dolls, only not as good.
2NE1 plans to make up for lost time.
The final three artists take the stage and vie for votes for the last time.
As usual, B.A.P continues to work without rest.
Surprisingly, a song called "Bring the Noize" is not the laid-back jam we expected.
