Listening Post

After grabbing pretty much everybody by the throat in the very first teaser for the upcoming David Fincher film, it's finally here in its full form -- if you can call a song that clocks in at under three minutes "full."

From the soundtrack to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, it's Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Karen O covering Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song.

That is awful.

Bonzo's puking up triple martinis in his grave as we speak.

At first I thought there was way too much delay and reverb, but now I think there isn't enough. Just a little more and it would be a mangled, unintelligible mess and thus not blow fecal matter all over one of the greatest rock songs ever.

hot raucous shit

That's right, Steven. You tell 'em Mr I-Know-Cause-I-Play-in-a-Bar-Band.

Nonsense. It's a shockingly cool version of the song. Not everything has to satisfy the purists -- in fact, it almost never should.

Works for me.

Plus, it sounds like a perfect fit for the upcoming film.

I'm not a purist, but even if this version of TIS had sucked (and in my view, it doesn't), so what? The original, "pure" version from Led Zep is still out there.

And just how does Steven know that "Bonzo's puking up triple martinis in his grave"?

I grab everyone in my vicinity by the throat every time I see the trailer in theaters!

Thanks for the track!
