Ok, this is pretty cool, so I have to break my vow of blogger’s silence to mention that Doc Martens, the British shoe company that has been in step (couldn’t resist) with so many pop music trends in the UK, and sometimes the States, is celebrating its fiftieth birthday by commissioning contemporary bands to record “their version of a cult classic track which represents the spirit of the people who’ve worn DM’s over the past 50 years.”

The New York Times is running a piece on this initiative here.

And the company Dr. Martens celebrates its history on this website, which includes links to the songs—videos and downloads.

Not bad.
