Coldplay covered "Fight for Your Right to Party" at the Hollywood Bowl last week in honor of Adam Yauch's death. A nice sentiment, but what do we think of the aggressively Coldplay-stylized version, or the fact that the Beastie Boys publicly disowned the song and have long since stopped performing it live?

Last Friday night at Coachella, the Black Keys brought John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival onstage to play "The Weight" in memory of the recent death of The Band drummer Levon Helm. Everyone who wasn't at Coachella suddenly became 100 percent more regretful that they couldn't make it.

This epic meet-up went down in 1980, during Queen's tour promoting their new album The Game. I'm sure it made the part where Freddie croons "Mamaaaaaa..." during Bohemian Rhapsody that much more poignant.

Oh wait, the prequels weren't out yet. It was a simpler time.
