    Lou Reed and Metallica's collaborative LP has a name. And it's Lulu. It is set to release on Nov. 1.

    The collaboration was born when Reed and 'Tellica performed live in 2009 at the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Recording began in early May at HQ Studios in Northern California and the rest, as they say, is LouReedMetallicaHistory. Reed composed the 10 tracks for the album, while Metallica made "significant arrangement contributions."

    This a true mash up and they are calling themselves "Loutallica," albeit jokingly.

    Go here for more details on the back story of Reed's inspiration for the project.

    Some Lulu track titles: "Junior Dad," "Mistress Dread" and "Pumping Blood."

    Which song title is your favorite?
