    What an unbelievably lame album title, sounds like something the School of Rock kids would've wrote

    Here's the story behind the title:
    "He also revealed that inspiration for the album title didn't come from a celebratory place. During the Nashville sessions, Auerbach said they came across a newspaper story about Tennessee's first execution in more than a decade. Guards apparently asked the convicted murderer for any last words, and he replied, "Let's rock." The Black Keys' new album features an electric chair on the cover."

    Pretty crazy backstory nonetheless.

    Backstory on the album title makes me a lot more excited since at least there's some story there. The promo photo plus this title looks like absolute dogshit, like they're in a movie about the downfall of the band and they KNOW this is the album where they mailed it in and it all went to hell.
