Great non-Beatles song...

... with a random Beatles reference. The latest entry in this ongoing series comes from a band not for the faint-of-heart. Though they broke up in 2007 after a ten-year run, the Blood Brothers achieved some recognition on the indie scene by playing arty post-metal that was often wild-eyed and punishingly fierce. It was the kind of music that invited the exaggerated description, "It'll make your ears bleed." However, what made the Blood Brothers' music so compelling was the richly melodic turns it would take at times. Mixed in with the screeching and scorching sounds was a firm pop sensibility that could manifest itself quite unpredictably and lead to some haunting and graceful moments. Have a listen below.

The line: "John Lennon and the Rolling Stones crooning in plastic bags."
The song: "Spit Shine Your Black Clouds"
