Get Yourself Some Rocket Skates

It's been a frustrating day thus far, but one thing making it infinitely better is the fact that a new Deftones song has been released. "Rocket Skates" will appear on their forthcoming album Diamond Eyes which is out on May 18th. You are supposed to be able to download the song for free for a limited time at this website, but every time I've tried to get the song I've gotten an error message about the code (which is provided on the site in the instructions for downloading) already being in use and to try again later. From what I've seen on Facebook and message boards, I'm not the only one having this issue. And as of the time of this writing, the Deftones official website is down, so the whole thing looks to be a debacle. Kudos to Warner Bros. Records for setting up a shitty website where fans can't get redeem the song as advertised. Thankfully the song is up on the band's YouTube page, so you can hear it below. It, not surprisingly, sounds fantastic:
