Pavement – “Cut Your Hair”
Stephen Malkmus played a show in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday night where he covered Silver Jews’ “Trains Across the Sea” and “The Wild Kindness” in honour of the band’s late frontman, David Berman.

The Stone Roses – “I Wanna Be Adored”
After years of rumours, John Squire has confirmed that The Stone Roses have split up once again.

When asked if it truly was the end of the band, Squire responded with a simple “Yeah.”
