I have Internet off and on right now... so even though I didn't do a new music post, here's a round-up for the day:

- The festival featured Coldplay covering the Beastie Boys' "Fight For Your Right." Check it out here.

- The Red Hot Chili Peppers plan on ending a two-year hiatus by getting started on new material this October. Drummer Chad Smith told Billboard, "It'll be two years in September, so now we're ready. You can't force people to play when they don't want to play or aren't ready to play or whatever – not in our band, anyway." [NME]

- Check out the cover of Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 here. [Pitchfork]

- Michael Jackson's mother Katherine Jackson received permanent custody of his children. [CNN]
