"I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane, and all the passengers were drunk and insane," Mick Jagger belts. "I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp, shot up a horde of zombies but I come out on top."

Zombies and exploding heads aside, "Doom and Gloom" is a track from GRRR!, the group's forthcoming three-disc greatest hits compilation due out Nov. 12. The Rolling Stones made headlines in the tech world earlier this year when a clever 404 error message on its website surfaced.
