Rolling Stone Put a Band You’ve Never Heard Of on Its Cover

The Sheepdogs.

Well, not just you specifically, but anyone. They're called the Sheepdogs, they're "boogie rock revivalists" from Canada, and they won Rolling Stone's unsigned-band-will-get-RS-cover contest. (They also got to play Jimmy Fallon last night.) This is weird: People don't care about bands because they're on the cover of Rolling Stone; bands are on the cover of Rolling Stone because people care about them. That said — well done, the Sheepdogs! Hopefully you are spending your time re-creating the "cover of Rolling Stone magazine!" scene from Almost Famous on a continuous loop. [RS via Pop Candy/USAT]
