Tom Morello has recruited some very famous friends for a very famous cover song on his new solo album. On Wednesday, the Rage Against The Machine guitarist released a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell” – featuring Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder. Morello summed it up nicely: “one of the greatest rock’n’roll songs of all time sung by two of the greatest rock’n’roll singers of all time. And then I drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”
The track appears on Morello’s upcoming solo album The Atlas Underground Fire, due out October 15th.
