Italian sensations Måneskin have performed a live version of The Stooges' 1969 classic I Wanna Be Your Dog while guesting on SiriusXM's Howard 101, the show hosted by legendary presenter Howard Stern. 

The band also were also joined by Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello to perform their collaboration Gossip, taken from Måneskin's recently released third album Rush.

While in Los Angeles, Morello and Måneskin also dropped by the studios of Audacy Check In, where the RATM man was effusive in his praise for the quartet.

"They're carrying the flag and are the standard bearers for a new generation of rock'n'roll," says Morello. "I first heard about them from the big hit song Beggin', and then had the opportunity to jam with them and it's really a great band. 

"Some of them have known each other since 12 years old. They began playing on the streets of Rome at 15. It's called 'busking' – Americans might know it as playing for change on the street. It's a real band that has really paid their dues and it's just great to see. And we always have a lot of fun playing together."

Speaking of Gossip, Morello adds, "It's an unusual thing in 2023 to have a rock'n'roll band that has songs on the radio. Then to have a song on the radio that has not one, but two guitar solos in it! It really is an anomaly in this day and age."

Måneskin's upcoming European tour begins on February 23 at Pesaro's Vitifrigo Arena in Italy. Full dates below.
