December 30th, we wished a Happy 64th Birthday to punk-rock godmother, queen of the spoken word, poet and performance artist, Patti Smith.

As the Five O'Clock Shadow, we heard her one-of-a kind re-imagining of Them's Gloria.

For the final 5 O'Clock Shadow of the year, we bid farewell to 2010 by paying tribute to an artist we lost this mid-December.. the late Captain Beefheart.

On a B-side to the Flaming Lips' Borderline single, the Black Keys released a cover of the Captain's Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles.
