The Red Hot Chili Peppers' version of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire," which closed
out the riotous Woodstock '99 festival, also will close the first disc
of the upcoming Woodstock 99 double-CD set.
The 32-song album, due Oct. 19, also will include tracks from rock-rappers
Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock, rockers Bush, Live, Everclear and the Dave
Matthews Band, singer/songwriters Jewel and Alanis Morissette, hip-hoppers
DMX and the Roots and electronica duo the Chemical Brothers, according
to an Epic Records press release.
The set is divided into a "Red Disc" of more aggressive material and
"Blue Disc" of comparatively mellow tracks.
Among the cuts on the red CD are Korn's "Blind" (RealAudio
excerpt of studio version), along with Limp Bizkit's "Show Me
What You Got," Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls on Parade" and Metallica's
The latter three bands played consecutive sets on the second night of
the July 2325 festival in Rome, N.Y. After hundreds of kids were
injured in mosh pits that night and a 24-year-old woman told police
she was raped in the pit organizers second-guessed their decision
to schedule the three hard-rock bands in a row.
"We probably were the victim of our own idea of ending it that way,"
co-promoter John Scher said.
The first disc also includes Creed's cover of the Doors' "Roadhouse Blues,"
for which the rock band was joined by former Doors guitarist Robby Krieger.
A "Woodstock 99" DVD also will be released Oct. 19.
