Dave Grohl may be the hardest working man in the world of rock. Along with his highly decorated careers with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Probot, Them Crooked Vultures and many others, Grohl recently premiered his ‘Sound City’ documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, with the film now available to see in select theaters. Taking on yet another project, Grohl collaborated with Washington, D.C., group RDGLDGRN to record the song ‘I Love Lamp.’

RDGLDGRN (short for Red Gold Green) are a D.C.-based rock, hip-hop and punk hybrid who take influence from acts such as Bad Brains, Vampire Weekend, the Neptunes and many more. The trio entered Sound City Studios to record their music, and managed to catch the ear of Dave Grohl, who would end up playing drums for RDGLDGRN’s upcoming self-titled EP.

The track’s title, ‘I Love Lamp,’ is a reference to a line from the Will Ferrell modern comedy classic ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,’ spoken by Steve Carell’s character Brick Tamland. Although there are no direct lyrical connections to the film, the song’s title will surely catch attention, as Carell’s line is among the most repeated and beloved comedic references of the last decade.

As for the song itself, ‘I Love Lamp’ is a smooth and up-beat anthem which is both well-written and radio-friendly. If you’re looking for a sunny-day track to warm you up during bleak winter weather, you might find some solace from the elements within the track.
