Earlier this year, Newsted, the new project of former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, treated metal fans to their aptly titled debut EP, Metal. On August 6th, they'll release their full-length follow-up, Heavy Metal Music, on Chophouse Records and Collective Sounds. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to the album cut "Ampossible," a chugging, charging track that features some scorching guitarwork from Jessie Farnsworth and Newsted's pummeling bass (with one particularly Lemmy-like breakdown).

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

"'Ampossible' was initially composed as a warm-up instrumental song in the Chophouse in January 2013," Newsted tells Rolling Stone. "It's a hyper-morphed take on the original TV theme song from the 1960s Mission: Impossible – a childhood favorite."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
