Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello Teams Up With Bruce Springsteen & Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder For Cover Of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell”

Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello has released a new cover of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell.” The track, which features Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, will appear on Morello’s new album, “The Atlas Underground Fire,” which is set to be released on October 15.

Morello said the following about the cover:

“Our version of ‘Highway To Hell’ pays homage to AC/DC but with Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, bringing this legendary song into the future. One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time sung by two of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll singers of all time. And then I drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”

He also added the following about the new album:

“During lockdown I had no access to an engineer so I had to record all of the guitar parts on the voice memo of my phone. This seemed like an outrageous idea but it lead to a freedom in creativity in that I could not overthink any of the guitar parts and just had to trust my instincts.

This record was a life raft in a difficult time that allowed me to find new ways of creating new global artistic connections that helped transform a time of fear and anxiety into one of musical expression and rocking jams.”
