As a man who can just call up Paul McCartney and ask him to come over for a jam session—which culminated in the inarguable highlight of 12-12-12—Dave Grohl clearly has a lot of famous, talented and iconic friends.
So it makes sense that the soundtrack to his upcoming directorial debut—a documentary called Sound City about a legendary recording studio—features just about everyone from every band ever. The soundtrack includes "Cut Me Some Slack" (that Paul McCartney/Krist Novoselic/Pat Smear/Grohl track) as well as collaborations with Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Trent Reznor, Stevie Nicks and the icing on the cake: "Jessie's Girl" scribe Rick Springfield.
Suspiciously, neither Damon Albarn or Jack White are on this soundtrack. Which is weird, because they join a different band every year.
For your convenience, we've listed the various bands represented on the Sound City soundtrack by one or more members below. And no, Rage Against the Machine isn't accounted for here by Tom Morello or Zack de la Rocha, but rather the other two RATM dudes. But still, an album that puts Slipknot and Cheap Trick members on the same song is pretty genius.
Nine Inch Nails
Queens of the Stone Age
Rage Against the Machine
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
