Amazon.com is offering “Scumbag Blues” from Them Crooked Vultures for free today. The site is also offering the whole album for $2.99.
On paper, Them Crooked Vultures is a genius super group, mixing a bit of Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, and Queens of the Stone Age. Sounds like a touch of metal heaven.
But that’s on paper.
Still, the track is free and a because it’s free it’s worth checking out. If it’s your cup of tea, get the whole album. If you don’t like it, there’s nothing lost except about 5 MB of hard drive space.
