    Jonah Hex star Josh Brolin easily could've picked up a guitar and been a rock star.

    He's got an undeniable grit and gusto that's befitting of the likes of Slash and Chris Cornell, and that's what makes his performance as Jonah Hex so undisputedly badass. As Hex, Brolin kicks ass and takes names all across the Old West in the name of revenge for his murdered wife and son. At the end of the trail of dead stands John Malkovich's maniacal Quentin Turnbull, and there's no shortage of blasting away.

    Mastodon fuels the film with a pulverizingly psychedelic score, but Brolin's playlist is equally rocking.

    Josh Brolin sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for this exclusive video interview about what's on his and Jonah Hex's playlist and so much more!

    Watch the interview here and below and don't miss Jonah Hex when it rolls into theaters Friday June 18.



    Josh Brolin's Playlist:

    1. Chris Cornell

    "God man, I just heard Chris Cornell do acoustic stuff. He did "Billie Jean." I don't know if you've heard his acoustic version of "Billie Jean," but it's one of the most phenomenal things I've ever heard."

    2. Pearl Jam

    "I think Pearl Jam would be my favorite band presently. I can't get away from that because I think they're phenomenal."
