Marilyn Manson, Everclear, the Donnas, and Drain STH will be among the artists revisiting the big rock of the '70s on the soundtrack to the upcoming film "Detroit Rock City."Set in 1978, the movie follows a group of teens desperately trying to get into a sold-out Kiss concert. In keeping with that period, Manson will cover AC/DC's "Highway To Hell," Drain STH will tackle the T-Rex classic "20th Century Boy," and the Donnas will take a stab at the Kiss nugget "Strutter." Everclear will also dig into the pre-1978 rock catalog for the soundtrack; the band is heading to frontman Art Alexakis' basement to record Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town." Of course, Kiss will be featured as well, with the band kicking in three old tracks and one new song written for the band by Dianne Warren, the woman behind Aerosmith's Oscar-nominated "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" (see "Kiss Teams With Oscar-Nominated Songwriter, Grammy-Winning Producer For Soundtrack").
"Detroit Rock City" opens on August 13, and the soundtrack should arrive at the end of July.
