Download: The Black Keys – I got Mine(live) [MP3]


  • My favorite Black Keys song is “Till I Get My Way” because it makes my face melt.

  • I would say Act Nice and Gentle, but since it is a Kinks cover, I’ll go with “Stack Shot Billy” because Stack, the one guy, shot Billy, the other guy – there’s no such thing as a Stack Shot Billy. The song leaves it pretty ambiguous about why Stack shot Billy, was it his evil brain?, did Billy steal Stack’s cocaine?, did Stack kill Billy for some sweet cocaine that Billy had?, but we do know that Stack did it in a pretty classless way (the back of the head, c’mon Stack, you’re better than that – it must’ve been his evil brain that made him do something that nasty). I would have preferred to know more about Stack’s motivation – he’s a pretty one sided antagonist (protagonist – antihero?) – but he still fits in with his other 1 sided blues brothers.

  • “I got Mine” hands down. Never heard the song until I saw them live at ACL this year and its been stuck with me ever since.
    A bad ass song to compliment the bad ass sense of being you get when you listen to this song full blast in your car.
    A definite sing along to those that wish to be arrogent at heart.

  • My favorite has got to be “Things Ain’t What They Used to Be” off the Attack & Release album. The lyrics and vocals during the hook will tug at your heart strings. It also marks the first time i heard Dan Auerbach’s protégé Jessica Lea Mayfield (background vocals), who is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

  • I know it’s a cover, but Junior Kimbrough’s “Meet Me in the City” off of Chulahoma, always does it for me. There’s a solid but mellow, sloppy but intricate groove with that classic North Mississippi style and bass note thump that Kimbrough played. Which is I guess, why I love it. This is the sound that the Keys managed to bring roaring into the new millennium. Keep rocking.
