travis sitting 385 [World Premiere] Travis Barker "Saturday Night" ft. The Transplants & Slash

While I already had the chance to listen to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis Barker[/lastfm]’s upcoming album, Give The Drummer Some, most people haven’t heard anything from it besides the first two released tracks “Can A Drummer Get Some” and “Carry It,” which both feature a slew of hip hop artists.

Today, Travis decided to send over one of the few KROQ-esque tracks that made the album, called “Saturday Night,” which features [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Transplants[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Slash[/lastfm], to Stryker for an exclusive KROQ world premiere. If you’re unaware, The Transplants are one of Barker’s side projects involving Tim Armstrong of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rancid[/lastfm] and their longtime friend Skinhead Rob.

The song has a very different sound than what you may be expecting, but the Spanish-style guitar noodling of Slash in the background mixed with the vocals of Armstrong and Rob actually works very well together. Give it a listen after the jump, you’ll be glad you did.

    transplants plus slash = great music

  14. tabs says:

    awesome! i love it. now i wanna move to cali. 😀

  15. Justin says:

    I love singers who can’t hold tunes (Or don’t even try to?) and the hiring of a single talented person to try and make up for what this music obviously lacks, which is style, quality and a decent melody. Sure it has a hook, but is that what you people really want to listen to? A hook for 3 1/2 minutes, then that’s it?

  16. steven says:

    dam dope jam cann’t wait for the album to come out

  17. Sloppy Joe says:

    i hate to be a negative nancy but damn, this is terrible repetitive & terrible. …none the less, im stoked for “cool head” feat. kid cudi!

  18. Marco says:

    I like the vocals, The Transplants should make another album

  19. Briana says:

    pretty cool….but not what i expected haha

  20. michael z. says:

    that song sucks ass!!!!!!!

  21. L says:

    Sounds like a Dwarves rip Off to me 😦

  22. Sarah Luck says:

    The new albums amazing but I’m way more into the way Rob raps in the old transplants CDs. Like he’s gonna kill a $&@!
