feature cover versions of Ramones classics by such industry luminaries Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Marilyn Manson, Green Day, and Eddie Vedder.

and Billy Corgan will not appear. However, further superstars have been added to the
lineup and it can now be revealed that album will also contain recordings from Metallica,
