Metallica releases a new track on their MySpace page (off the upcoming Death Magnetic), and it’s some kind of monster, the most metal thing they’ve done in almost twenty years.

2. The Streets, “Everything Is Borrowed”
Mike Skinner releases the title track off his upcoming record, a wistful one that could be about the music industry: “I came to this world with nothing, and I leave with nothing but love. Everything is borrowed.” [Punkreas]

3. Chromeo, “Family Man” (Hall & Oates cover)
Chromeo up the yacht-rock ante on this reworking of the H&O classic, adding some nice vocoder. [Hero Hill]

4. Ying Yang Twins, “Look Back at It”
This is the Ying Yang Twins, so you probably don’t need to guess what the “it” is in the title. [Winnie Cooper]

5. Shad, “The Old Prince Still Lives at Home”
Shad rather successfully imitates a younger Will Smith, but instead of living in Bel-Air, broke-ass Shad hilariously runs out of money for the beat halfway through the song. [Pinglewood]
