The latest MP3s to hit the blogs.

1. The White Stripes, "Icky Thump"
The Stripes deliver 2007's first great prog-rock tribute to United States immigration policy. [Your Head's Not Right]

2. The Flaming Lips, "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How to Be in Love"
Wayne Coyne has clearly not seen the new Spider-Man movie — which won't stop him from writing this song about it. [Stereogum]

3. Bob Dylan, "Huck's Tune"
This ballad from the upcoming Lucky You soundtrack wasn't crotchety or cantankerous enough to warrant inclusion on one of Dylan's own albums, but it's still fairly excellent. [Idolator]

4. John Cale, "All My Friends" (LCD Soundsystem cover)

On Wednesday, Alex Kapranos and Co. made this Sounds of Silver track sound like a Franz Ferdinand song. Here, John Cale makes it sound like Joy Division. [MySpace]

5. The Killers, "Shadowplay" (Joy Division cover)
… And on this ill-advised cover, the Killers manage to make a Joy Division song sound like She Wants Revenge. That'll show those clowns from the Bravery! [The Music Slut] — Lane Brown
