This week’s edition of “Live In the Living Room” is a killer version of “Tenderloin,” one of my favorite Rancid songs; you can find the original on the band’s 1994 sophomore album Let’s Go! The video is the same as last week’s with a full contrast, monochromatic look at the band performing live.

Check it out above, and be sure to head to rancidrancid.com for all your Rancid needs.

The fifth installment of #MonsterMondays from Swizz Beatz finds the producer/rapper working with Busta Rhymes again. And again it’s another track that falls flat.

After five weeks of #MonsterMondays there has yet to be a track that stood out from the rest, or even one that was particularly good. I’m not sure exactly why Swizz is working with rappers that aren’t relevant (DMX, Busta Rhymes, Rakim), but it would be nice if he’d make a good song for this series rather than posting lame songs one after another.

If you’re so inclined, you can give “Bad One” a listen after the jump.

Above is the Gorillaz cover of the xx “Chrystalised” from their Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1. Damon Albarn and friends, including pop singer Daley, also performed the band’s latest single “Doncomatic” and “Melancholy Hill” from the band’s Plastic Beach album.

Hit the jump to watch a great version of “Doncomatic” and “Melancholy Hill,” which was not aired on the original broadcast.

Arcade Fire had announced they were working with Spike Jonze over the summer, and now we can see the result of that collaboration. The video for the title track to Arcade Fire’s third album, The Suburbs, has a video that shows a group of teenagers running around the suburbs and the imagery showcases that it isn’t as glamorous a place as so many people think.

View the clip after the jump.

The Decemberists were accompanied by singer-songwriter Gillian Welch when the band performed last night on Conan. The show has been on for two full weeks and has been quite funny with some great guests, both on the couch and performing. The Decemberists definitely add to the already great list.

You can see their performance of “Down By the Water” after the jump.

My Chemical Romance recently debuted their new video Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys song “Sing” on MTV.com.

The clip features plenty more NES gun battles following the band breaking into Better Living Industries to save a kidnapped young boy. I won’t tell you whether the heroic move works out for the band and the young victim, but I will say that a few of the band members don’t make it to the end of the video.

Hit the jump to watch “Sing.”

Rancid is the latest band to jump on the weekly offering bandwagon with their “Live In the Living Room” series.

So, what is this “Live In the Living Room” series all about, you ask? The band’s website explains it like this:

Rancid has started doing weekly sessions we’re calling “Rancid Live From The Living Room”. Every Monday a new song drops. These songs are recorded live and filmed to share with you. We are keeping it raw, no overdubs, no studio tricks. Acoustic, and electric renditions of Rancid songs varying from our entire catalog, as well as an occasional cover song.

The first “Living Room” session was an acoustic performance of “Wrongful Suspicion,” from the band’s fourth album, Life Won’t Wait, and it’s a pretty cool version of the song from a band known more for being loud than for their acoustic prowess.

Hit the jump to check out the high-contrast, monochromatic first installment of “Live In the Living Room.”

Perhaps you’ve heard the lead single, “Shake Me Down,” from Cage the Elephant’s forthcoming sophomore release, Thank You, Happy Birthday. Now you can hear, and download, another song, “2024,” from the album.

The band played this song when they performed at the Depot this summer. I remember liking it then, and the studio version is even better. Give it a listen below.

Klaxons recently released their sophomore album, Surfing the Void, and now they have a very NSFW for “Twin Flames.”

The clip starts off with some strange body morphing and turns into an overly lubed make-out orgy full of nudity. Hit the jump to watch, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Arcade Fire was the musical guest this past weekend on Saturday Night Live and the band gave the world two great performances from their recent release, Suburbs. The band also appeared in the Digital Short for the episode.

Above is the performance of “We Used To Wait,” where lead man Win Butler takes a rare (for SNL) step off stage, and after the jump is “Sprawl II” and the hilarious digital short where human history is boiled down to one not-so-simple question: “What Was That?”
