    Mastodon involved with a ZZ Top project? Nonsense, utter nonsense. On a related note, this is easily the most star studded tribute ive seen since the sabbath tributes. Not too attractive all the same, however.

    I’m sure there’s a few sweet tracks, but I’ll wait for the Kidz Bop version.

    “Just Got Paid” is a great tune. The whole album “Rio Grande Mud” is very good.

  • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

    Daughtry clearly the highlight here.

      I don’t know, Nickelback might give them a run for their money.


    I have not been this sad since the HUM tribute track list rolled out. The Mastodon track has been around, I own it. Coheed and Cambria’s should be nice. Other than that, yuck!!!
    ps. I care because I LOVE ZZTOP!!! better than peanut butter.

      Wolfmother is kinda rad too, if you’re into good old lo-fi rock’n’roll……. also, where is Emmure’s cover of ZZ’s “Pearl Necklace”? haha, get it? ……….cuz Emmure sucks cock.

    Wyclef Jean? what about Dylon? I SPIT HOT FIRE!

  • I Am Legend

    sorry for the all caps, but i can’t help it……… UMMMMMMM WHERE THE FUCK IS QUEENS of the STONE AGE ON THIS COMP? I mean, if Mastodon, C&C, and Wolfmother don’t mind being on this comp with a bunch of douchewibblers, then Queens should’ve contributed something too, I mean, c’mon, they worked with Billy Gibbs on “Burn the Witch”.
