    "From Can to Can't" might be the darkest blues jam ever cut to tape—key words "cut to tape".

    Bringing together Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor, Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen, Dave Grohl, and bassist Scott Reeder [Kyuss], the track emanates smoky noir gloom. Taylor pristinely croons, "I'm burning my cathedrals because I don't pray alone" over a hulking trademark Grohl beat. Everything builds into a climax of heavy riffing and even heavier shredding that's nothing short of brutally elegant.

    This irresistible dirge from Sound City - Real to Reel—the collection of original jams recorded for Grohl's Sound City documentary—is going to take up residence inside your head and stay there for quite some time. Would you expect anything less from this dream team?
