Daily Roundup: Bane Channels Elton John

(VIA COUNTRY) Tom Hardy, best known for his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, will play Elton John in an upcoming biopic. I hope he looks good in a Daffy Duck costume. Who am I kidding, that muffin of stud looks good in anything! [Variety]

(VIA METAL) Linkin Park is streaming their entire RECHARGED album. Ugh. Well, at least Idol isn’t here to sing along to it. [MTV]

(VIA INDIE) YouTube is reportedly starting their own subscription music service. Don’t worry, access to MyMusic will remain free of charge … at least until my next vacation to the International Fixed-Gear Expo and Vegan Chili Cookoff Spectacular. [Billboard]

Paul McCartney insists he’s not going to write anymore new songs. Totally fine with us, Paul. Totally fine. [NME]

(VIA TECHNO & DUBSTEP) Daft Punk will be releasing a Random Access Memories deluxe box set which will cost $275. I guess Dubstep and I will be working overtime the next couple of weeks.
