(8/28/01, 10 a.m. ET) - Modern rockers Everclear and Verve Pipe join old guard rockers such as Bon Jovi and Kiss on the soundtrack to the upcoming film Rock Star, in stores today (August 28). The album also features hits from Ted Nugent, INXS, and Motley Crue, as well as several tracks from the movie's fictitious group, Steel Dragon, featuring Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde, Dokken bassist Jeff Pilson, guitar hero Yngwie Malmstein, and drummer Jason Bonham, plus others.
Rock Star features Mark Wahlberg in the role of a young man who is chosen to replace the lead singer of his all-time favorite band. The album's first single is Everclear's "Rock Star," which originally appeared on the group's most recent album, Songs From An American Movie, Vol. 2: Good Time For A Bad Attitude.
Zakk Wylde, who is a member of Steel Dragon in the movie, told LAUNCH about the soundtrack, which was done in part by one of the members of Marilyn Manson: "Twiggy Ramirez wrote a song and a bunch of other guys had written some material for it. Trevor Rabin from Yes, he did the score--the music when the acting is going on and the scenes and stuff like that. I had a great time...All the guitar playing is me on the soundtrack."
The complete track listing is: "Rock Star," Everclear; "Livin' The Life," Steel Dragon; "Wild Side," Motley Crue; "We All Die Young," Steel Dragon; "Blood Pollution," Steel Dragon; "Livin' On A Prayer," Bon Jovi; "Stand Up," Steel Dragon; "Stranglehold," Ted Nugent; "Wasted Generation," Steel Dragon; "Lick It Up," Kiss; "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll," Steel Dragon; "Devil Inside," INXS; "Colorful," Verve Pipe; and "Gotta Have It," Trevor Rabin.
Rock Star, the movie, opens Friday, September 7.
