Sydney's Wolfmother will teleport you back to the pre-metal rock days of the late-'60s and early-'70s. Singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale's magazine-friendly good looks may recall a young Noel Redding (the English afro'd bass player from the Jimi Hendrix Experience), but his raucous, riff-heavy guitar playing echoes amp-blasting tones from both Leigh Stephens (Blue Cheer) and Vanilla Fudge's Vince Martell. However impressive his six-string skills are, it's Stockdale's powerful and melodic wail that drives Wolfmother. The chemistry between Stockdale, drummer Myles Heskett and bassist/keyboardist Chris Ross was apparent on Wolfmother's 2006 self-titled debut. But it didn't last; international success, a Grammy (for Best Hard Rock Performance) and even a request from Led Zeppelin to appear as guests for their U.K. Music Hall of Fame induction led to tension and eventually the departure of Heskett and Ross, who cited "irreconcilable differences." Stockdale kept the name and recruited guitarist Aidan Nemeth, bassist/keyboardist Ian Peres and drummer Dave Atkins to go on as Wolfmother. The new quartet released Cosmic Egg in late 2009.

Wolfmother Top Tracks
Rage Against The Machine
Runtime: 1 hr 24 minRage Against the Machine released this self-titled film in 1997, collecting live concert footage and music videos of some of their best material. The band starts with a passionate rendition of Bruce Springsteen's "Ghost of Tom Joad" live from the Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA. The well-filmed performance captures Rage near the top of their game. Seeing Zack de la Rocha interact with a large crowd and the band work a tight, incendiary groove is required to understand the appeal of the now-defunct political rock band. This is underscored by "People of the Sun" and four other songs live from the Rock Am Ring Festival in Germany, where Rage plays before what must be 100,000 people. The second half of the film is filled with six music videos, including "Freedom" and "Memory of the Dead (Land and Liberty)."
