Some cool musical artifacts:

-The Listen2This section of the forthcoming issue of EW offers a glimpse of this clever map that overlays the seminal artists of pop history onto the tube stations of the London Underground. It’s not a perfect match, but it’s fun to see which artists are dead ends and which are nexus points for multiple genres. The busy King’s Cross/St. Pancras tube stop, for instance, becomes the Beck station, where the lines of Pop, Hip-Hop, Funk, Rock, Blues, and Jazz intersect. You can download the whole map as a PDF file here.

-Relive the grunge era with this Kurt Cobain action figure. Hours of angst-ridden fun for the whole family!

-Via Stereogum comes ”The Four Stages of the Arctic Monkeys,” an outtake from The Best Week Ever that offers the most brilliant and hilarious explanation yet of how the much-hyped British band has been received in the U.S. Works just as well for Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, or the suddenly popular indie band of your choice.
