Grohl got Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Trent Reznor and Josh Homme for the soundtrack to his film about the L.A. studio where Nirvana made Nevermind. So it's odd the second single is a drably explosive alt-rock moaner, with Slipknot's Corey Taylor on vocals. Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen shreds and the rhythm section of Grohl and Kyuss' Scott Reeder is mighty, but they can't save a tune unworthy of Grohl's rock-buddy Rolodex.

"I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
