Watch Foo Fighters rock "The Line" on "Ellen"

Daytime TV got a boost of rock on Friday when Foo Fighters stopped by Ellen to perform their Concrete and Gold song, "The Line." Introducing Dave Grohl and company, Ellen DeGeneres said the Foos "might just be the coolest rock band in the world." She would probably know for sure if KISS Guy or Little Fonzie showed up. Foo Fighters recently wrapped up a U.S. tour, and they're heading to Europe in June. The band will return stateside in July, and that outing will last into October. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

As far as breakthroughs go, Bad Wolves' story is a bit on the unusual side. The rising metal band was due to collaborate with Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan on a cover of her band's hit, "Zombie," but she unexpectedly passed away the day she was scheduled to record her vocals.  Now, the "Zombie" cover -- which was released in support of Dolores' children -- appears on Bad Wolves' debut album Disobey, which arrives today. While Bad Wolves made waves with their metal take on "Zombie," frontman Tommy Vext tells ABC Radio that, sonically, the cover is on the "lighter" side…

Finally, Arctic Monkeys' new album "Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino" arrives today

After five years and zero advance singles, the new Arctic Monkeys album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is finally here. The British rockers' sixth studio effort, the follow-up to 2013's AM, arrives today.
