Dave Grohl's documentary about Sound City recording studios is accompanied by this soundtrack, wherein the Foo Fighters' leader teams up with several of the star musicians featured in his film to create new music. There are some familiar faces for Grohl -- his Foo mates Taylor Hawkins and Pat Smear, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age -- but also such new collaborators as Trent Reznor, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving, Stevie Nicks, and Paul McCartney, the latter of whom appears with the surviving members of Nirvana on the rocker "Cut Me Some Slack."
