A walk in the Park, Volume 211

WARDEN TRACKS... Josh Homme is most well-known as the frontman of alt-rockers, Queens Of The Stone Age, but he has a very large resume when it comes to underground rock.  Another one of his bands is the much less-known Eagles Of Death Metal, and that's who today's song comes from.  They have three full-length albums, the most recent of which is 2008's "Heart On."  Despite the band name, their music is nothing like "death metal."  They're just plain groovy... and funny.  Click right to check out "WANNABE IN L.A." by Eagles Of Death Metal!
