Van Halen are digging deep into their back catalog on their current tour. They even broke out "The Full Bug" last night at New York's Madison Square Garden, marking the first time the Diver Down track has been performed live since 1983. You can see fan-filmed footage of the performance below.

A video has been making the rounds today featuring Kurt Cobain's isolated vocal track from "Smells Like Teen Spirit," taken from Nirvana's seminal 1991 album, Nevermind. While it's not exactly new (it's been up since 2010,) it's still a cool find, and you can listen in the video below.
Led Zeppelin's December 10, 2007, reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena -- a show that saw three aging rock legends revisiting their storied past -- will have a significant impact on future musicians. Proceeds from the event, which was staged as a tribute to the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, make up most of the $45 million being donated by Ertegun’s widow, Mica Ertegun, to Engand's Oxford University. The donation, the largest in the University’s 916-year history, will be used to kick off the Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities.
