When Mumford & Sons entered the studio to commence work on their second album, Babel, in August of 2011, they never envisioned it would be to follow-up a debut record that had connected with so many music lovers from all different corners of the globe, and all the roads in-between. Their success is even something the four members struggle to trace. "It sort of just happened," Marcus Mumford has often mused to journalists. The earliest memories of the band performing together are within the close confines of a rehearsal room in Putney, and of last minute street-side jamming sessions on the pavement outside Bosun's Locker (a now defunct basement venue on Kings Road in London) ahead of a show. It was a scene already common to the band as musicians falling in and out of bands of each and every genre. Ben Lovett and Marcus were already working on songs together from their school days, but those songs didn't realise their full potential until Winston Marshall (armed with a banjo and dobro), and Ted Dwane (double bass, but with a penchant for being a multi-instrumental marvel) had learned and lived those songs, given them new arrangements, and injected them with a real 'band' dynamic.

3.  Ramones - Acid Eaters

Tearing through a bunch of psychedelic and garage rock classics from the 1960s, the Ramones regain much of the fun and abandon of earlier records, making Acid Eaters easily their best record in a decade; the guest appearances of Pete Townshend ("Substitute") and ex-porn star Traci Lords ("Somebody to Love") help make the record a blast.

Mention the phrase Love Shack and anyone youre talking to will immediately know to what youre referencing. Few songs stick in the brain with such lasting power, fond memories, and sing-a-long potential as the B-52s blissful 1989 smash, one of the many moments that make the bands Cosmic Thing such a timeless affair. The groups melodies were never sharper, its vibes never as carefree, and attitude as joyous as on this multi-platinum affair that stayed on the charts for more than a year. Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys world-renowned mastering system at pressed at RTI, this Sliver Label LP dazzles with glorious textures, deeper low-end frequencies, more pronounced midrange information, and enhanced vocal dynamics absent from prior editions. Especially noticeable is the additional color and sense of rhythmic involvement in the already-persuasive pop-rock tunes, guaranteed to lighten any mood and ignite any celebration. Urging listeners to roam around the world on one of the two Top 5 singles here, the B-52s follow their own instructions, constructing lively fare assembled from quirky riffs, bizarre albeit smooth harmonies, strident lead vocals, jagged tempos, and infectious choruses. At heart, Cosmic Thing is a dance-your-ass-off soiree. Leader Fred Schneider delights in kitsch, his deliveries combining goofy pronouncements and half-rapped words that speak the co-ed ensembles long tradition of originality, flair, campiness, and irreverence.

Musicology 101

Let's have a little fun, so here are some rock and roll nuggets so you can win at music trivia games and become a top musicologist!

Jeff Beck, Peter Frampton, and Rory Gallagher all have something in common. They are three of the candidates who didn't get past the jamming phase in their unsuccessful bid to replace The Rolling Stone's Mick Taylor. Ronnie Wood, of course, won the gig.

Albert Hammond's 1972, Billboard #5 hit "It Never Rains In Southern California" was actually written in London, England, which receives about 29 inches of rainfall every year. According to the National Climatic Data Center, Southern California can receive as little as 1.6 inches of precipitation annually.

In 1963, The Isley Brothers hired a new kid to play lead guitar for them at a rate of $30 per night. This young man's name was Jimi Hendrix.

Brian Wilson and Mike Love got the inspiration for The Beach Boys' hit "Fun, Fun" Fun" after drummer Dennis Wilson said about his girlfriend, "We'll have fun 'til her daddy takes the T'bird away."

Originally the title of The Beatles' ninth album was supposed to be "A Doll's House", but that was scrapped when it was discovered that a British band called Family had already issued an LP called "Music in a Doll's House". After some design problems, the double disc effort was simply issued in a plain white jacket, embossed with the words "The Beatles". Fans would call it 'The White Album.'

During his Presidential campaign in 2000, George W. Bush was asked by Oprah Winfrey what his favorite song was. He replied "Wake Up Little Susie by Buddy Holly." 

Many of the sets and props used by Screen Gems for The Monkees' TV show were left over from The Three Stooges short films.

The Doors' "Light My Fire" topped the Billboard chart for three weeks in the summer of 1967, but Jim Morrison often indicated that he never liked the song and resented having to sing it. Ironically, it was the last song he ever did with the band during their final public performance at The Warehouse in New Orleans, Louisiana, on December 12, 1970.
