Guns n' Roses, Limp Bizkit and Korn considered for "End of Days"

August 6, 1999 12:00 AM ET

Every holiday season there's at least one film soundtrack that dwarfs all the others. Right now, the soundtrack to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film End of Days is the frontrunner for that role.| Limp Bizkit, Korn, Orgy, Rob Zombie, Creed, Everlast and, yes, Guns n' Roses, are being wooed by Interscope Records brass to provide original material to the soundtrack, according to a source.

It would surely seem the end of days if G n' R, once a candidate to appear on the soundtrack to Heavy Metal 2, were to provide new material before the group becomes eligible for the Rock & Roll of Fame. Korn, now in the studio with producer Brendan O'Brien, should be able to provide at least one new song to the album; and recent rumblings have Limp Bizkit returning to the studio again this year to begin work on a new album.

In addition to the known acts being considered, new Interscope signing, Professional Murder Music, likely will contribute a song called "Slow" to the soundtrack.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
