    Wolverine rocks.

    Born to be wild, he's easily the most "rock n' roll" of the X-Men. Let's break it down: he rides motorcycles, has some gnarly facial hair, is made of metal and smokes cigars like there's no tomorrow. Could he be more of a rock star? Probably not.

    That said, it's no surprise that the cast of X-Men Origins: Wolverine spent a lot of time cranking tunes on the set. In order for the actors to get into their respective characters, iPods were constantly blaring. Musical tastes varied between Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Lynn Collins and Taylor Kitsch, but everyone was bumping something.

    "I actually heard a lot of Faith Hill coming out of Hugh's trailer," jested Ryan. To which Hugh responded, "Well, there's a sensitivity to Wolverine, and it's not easy to access [Laughs]."

    Other than Faith Hill, Wolverine stars Jackman, Collins, Reynolds, Kitsch and Will.i.Am shared their playlist selections with ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive feature.

    Check out what they were spinning on set and beyond!

    Playlist: Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine)

    1. Godsmack

    "When I train, I listen to really hard stuff. While I'm working out, I listen to a lot of Godsmack as loudly as I can. That's the closest to Wolverine that I can get [Laughs]!"

    Playlist: Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson/Dead Pool)

    1. The National

    "For me, it was a band called The National. I'm obsessed with them; I love their albums!"

    Playlist: Lynn Collins (Kayla Silverfox)

    1. OneRepublic

    "I had one song from OneRepublic that I listened to constantly on set. I don't know what it's called, and now I can't listen to it anymore [Laughs]. It ruined the song for me."

    Playlist: Taylor Kitsch (Remy LeBau/Gambit)

    1. John Lee Hooker

    "Obviously my character's from New Orleans, so I was listening to John Lee Hooker all the time. That was me!"

    Playlist: Will.i.am

    1. Black Eyed Peas

    "I'm always making music, so I had to stop and focus on set because this was my first big thing. I took my studio there initially. Then I got a whisperer saying, 'Hey Will, you've got to take your studio out of the trailer.' I was making beats on the off time. I made about a thousand beats in between takes [Laughs]."
