Mercy Mercy Me

musicOne of my favourite tunes on the new Strokes disc is "You Only Live Once". It's the next single from First Impressions of Earth and it has a B side that's intriguing the hell out of me.

The Strokes have covered Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me" with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme. Homme will join Fabrizio Moretti on drums while Vedder and Julian Casablancas share vocals.

Mercy mercy me. I can't wait to hear this thing.

That be a quality sandwich. It's too bad Homme is just on drums, sorta like when Grohl played drums for his band.

PJ and the Strokes seem to dig jamming together. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
