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.

The Battle of Mexico City
Rage Against The Machine
Runtime: 1 hr 35 minOutside Mexico City's Sports Pavilion, hundreds of young Rage fans rattle metal fences and throw rocks at the increasingly nervous police. Inside, a seething crowd of 5,000 lucky ticket holders cram into the cavernous pavilion chanting anti-government slogans and poking their middle fingers into the thick, sweaty air while waiting for Rage Against the Machine to storm the stage.
One of the greatest live acts in music history, Rage only affirms that fact with this show. Whatever club, theater, arena, or stadium they're in, the opening of each Rage Against the Machine show always feels like a grenade has gone off. But this night it was as if a truckful of bombs blew up as the band tore into the opening salvo of "Testify." Fans cascaded toward the stage like rippling waves stopping only to pogo up-and-down like jackhammers.
Longtime supporters of various political causes in Mexico, Rage were performing for the very first time in Mexico City. The connection between the band and the audience is electric. From the early "all hell can't stop us now" chant in "Guerilla Radio" to the blood-curling screams in the finale of "Freedom," there is an urgency at this show that is unrivaled. This is live rock & roll as it's meant to be heard: fierce, funky, uncompromising. This is Rage Against the Machine in their finest hour.
On the Rock Trail
Runtime: 54 minWhen glam-rock took over the 70s music scene, Led Zeppelin danced to their own tune. Turning out wilder, raunchier and more powerful sounds on Rock classics like "Stairway to Heaven" and "Whole Lotta Love". With the dynamic vocals of Robert Plant, the mesmerizing guitar and bass of Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, and the magnificent drumming of John Bonham, Led Zeppelin had a line-up that would rock on, or so it seemed, forever. But like so many rock legends, they found that there was a high price to pay for living life in the fast lane. When Bonham died tragically in 1980, Led Zeppelin was disbanded, as the remaining members hadn't the heart to continue without the "Big Guy" on drums. The fact that more than 30 years down the line, the music of Led Zeppelin lives on, is a testament to the power of their music. Presented by former artist manager from London's famous Tin Pan Alley, Liam Dale, "On the Rock Trail" takes you on an informative (and at times humorous) journey behind the scenes of these icons of the music industry. This documentary contains no music from Led Zeppelin and is not authorized by Led Zeppelin or any of their affiliate entities.
