Rolling Stones Sings About Zombies [VIDEO]

Mashable

The Rolling Stones, who played their first gig 50 years ago, have returned after a seven-year hiatus. The English rockers debuted a new single, "Doom and Gloom," Thursday on BBC Radio 2.

A mopey lyric video accompanies the release and draws even more attention to the band's zombie reference:

"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.
