Queen, Walkmen, Ice-T, Santigold and The Cult on June podcast

Ice-T shares the couch with one of the Walkmen's kids and seems to be admiring the portrait of Roger Taylor on the piano.

BOOM-BOOM-CLAP! The MMMPod will, The MMMPod will ROCK YOU!

Seriously, the dude who was instrumental in making that beat happen, Roger Taylor of Queen, talks about its origins, as well as the Queen Extravaganza, which is the tribute act that he recruited and produced to offset all the cruddy Queen cover bands in the world.

On the June edition of the Metro Monthly Music Podcast, we also talk to Santigold about getting psyched up, and the Walkmen about getting chilled out.

Ian Astbury of The Cult gets out of SongSleuth™ jail somehow, although he totally pleads guilty to ripping off AC/DC.

Ice-T talks about his new movie, “Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap.” He also talks about the late MCA of the Beastie Boys and even performs a “cover song” of sorts of one of his favorite rappers.

We also hear a “Ruined by Rick Rubin” remix and a new tune from King Tuff.
