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

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.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
