With The White Stripes officially calling it quits, The Kills are one of the few popular modern rock acts left to keep the blues sound alive. Their latest record "DNA" is the kind of song you expect to hear in a smoke-filled pool hall or dimly-lit bar where everyone drinks whiskey.

Nothing against the electro-inspired pop-rock groups, but rock and roll needs badasses, and The Kills are filling that void right now. Listen to "DNA" below and download it in exchange for an email address at their website.

Blood Pressures drops April 5.
