FOO FIGHTERS share a video for "Run."

FATHER JOHN MISTY plays a stripped-down performance at Rockwood Music Hall.

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE stopped by The Current for a chat and mini-set.

JACK WHITE & ELTON JOHN recorded “Two Fingers of Whiskey” straight to wax.

THE WAR ON DRUGS shares "Holding On" ahead of A Deeper Understanding. 80s U2 & Bruce, with a dash of Bryan Adams?

GLENN CAMPBELL shares "Arkansas Farmboy," inspired by Campbell's rural origins and written in the late 1970s by Campbell's longtime banjo player Carl Jackson, who produced the upcoming Adiόs.

DAN WILSON (Semisonic, Trip Shakespeare) shares "Someone Like You" and "Home" from Re-Covered, a collection of songs he wrote for artists like Adele and others.

JASON ISBELL shares "White Man's World."

THE FIVE STAIRSTEPS:  “O-o-h Child." Time for a dance-off?

SHOVELS & ROPE: The Mom & Pop Rock 'n' Roll Shop.

ALT-J takes NPR on a track-by-track tour of Relaxer.

GREGG ALLMAN: The "Ramblin' Man" was laid to rest near highway 41.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Wonder Woman easily tops the chart with 100.5MM, the first, female-directed movie to debut in three digits; it's also considerably higher than the estimates just a week earlier, some of which were as low as 60MM.  The 122.5MM from foreign markets is less impressive, but overall, it looks to be worth a few hundred million dollars of profit for WB/DC before it leaves theaters, depending on how well The Mummy does. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie placed with 23.5MM, which is probably alright, considering DreamWorks outsourced this to Canada on a frugal 38MM production budget. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales tumbled 66 percent to show with 21.6MM; it continues to gross overseas, but the overall numbers now look shaky.  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took the fourth slot with another 9.7MM added to it's already yuge pile of cash.  Baywatch rounds out the Top Five with 8.5MM and may be even shakier than the Pirates.

ARIANA GRANDE visited fans hospitalized after the terror attack on her Manchester concert, then headlined the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

CHRIS CORNELL had several prescription drugs in his system but they didn’t contribute to his death in a Detroit hotel room, autopsy reports released on Friday showed.

JOHN HAMM talks about life after Mad Men and why singledom sucks...tho it does free him up to hit on Kate Beckinsale.

BILL COSBY's real and TV wives support him as he heads to trial on sexual assualt charges.

LAKE BELL has given birth to her second child.

BILL MAHER dropped an n-bomb on his TV show, apologized.

THE UNITED KINGDOM: PM Theresa May  said “it is time to say enough is enough” as she condemned a terror attack on “innocent and unarmed civilians” which left seven people dead and 48 injured in London. She also pointed to the internet and "the big companies that provide internet-based services" as "the safe space" that allows extremism to breed.

A few of these may be known generally, like Cheap Trick's "Way of the World" and Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind"... and some well-known to fans of the genre, like Dwight Twilley's "I'm On Fire," Shoes "Too Late," The Records' "Starry Eyes," the Flamin' Groovies' "Shake Some Action" and the Plimsouls'  "A Million Miles Away" (seen here in a rare live slot).  Others are well-known to longtime Pate fans, like the Three O'Clock's "Her Head's Revolving" or Let's Active's "Waters Part."

LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM & CHRISTINE McVIE advance stream their self-titled album.

ANI DiFRANCO advance streams Binary.

ALA.NI advance streams You & I.

BRAM TCHAIKOVSKY: "Girl Of My Dreams" and "Lady From the USA", live. Because it's Power Pop Friday, of course.

SGT. PEPPER: Not as good as Magical Mystery Tour?  More srsly, I haven't heard the remaster, but I have heard raves about it. BONUS: Reviews from 1967.

LYDIA LUNCH talks to SPIN baout her musical progeny.

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE talks to Paste about Nashville, Country lore, growing up, and more.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases are Wonder Woman, which is currently scoring 92 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which is scoring 86 percent.

WONDER WOMAN starts out wth an advantage the current run of Superman and Batman movies could never have -- most people have at best only the vaguest idea of the backstory of this otherwise iconic character.  So director Patty Jenkins gets the benefit of being able to tell an origin story, and in a version that transplants elements of her canon from WWII to WWI. Traveling to Man's World from the Paradise Island of the Amazons, the screenplay also makes much of the fish-out-of-water trope, both dramatically and comic relief, though never really at the expense of Princess Diana.  Rather, it tends to illuminate Diana's personality, which has more nuance than we tend to get from the more iconic Kal-El or even Bruce Wayne (because audience have very fixed expectations of who they will be).  Gal Godot turns in a star-making performance as Princess Diana, delivering on the promise of her scene-stealing in Batman vs Superman, well-matched with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, a role seemingly written to play to his strengths in action and comedy.  I've seen people appreciate that with Jenkins at the helm, it's less gritty than the prior entries in the DCEU, but I don't know that it's less gritty as much as being less urban in its settings.  The comic relief in the screenplay does make it feel a bit lighter, but without sacrificing the mythic quality DC was shooting for here.  Thoroughly enjoyable.

JOHNNY DEPP had no idea his former management team used his assets to secure 40MM worth of loans to cover up years of mishandling his money ... according to new legal docs.
