Members Of Tool, Hole, Anthrax Join Forces For Movie Metal

In addition to singing with Tool and A Perfect Circle, Maynard 
James Keenan has somehow found the time to record with a 
third band.

Keenan's vocals will be heard in "Ass Kickin' Fat Kid," a song 
by the equally ass-kickin' — though totally fictional — 
metalheads Titannica in the upcoming film "Run, Ronnie, 
Run," according to New Line Cinema. The movie is the 
brainchild of David Cross and Bob Odenkirk of the defunct 
HBO sketch-comedy series "Mr. Show With Bob and David."

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Samantha Maloney, the Hole 
drummer who filled in for the injured Randy Castillo during 
last summer's Mötley Crüe tour, also appear on the track, 
along with Titannica members played by actors Odenkirk and 
Brian Posehn.

Tool completists will have to see "Run, Ronnie, Run" when it 
hits theaters next spring to experience the song because it 
won't be included on the film's soundtrack album. Instead, 
the LP promises Melissa Auf Der Maur's cover of the Poison 
power ballad "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," Ween's rendition of 
the Atlanta Rhythm Section's "Champagne Jam," and the 
Vandals' version of the Foreigner classic "Dirty White Boy" 
among its tracks.

"Mr. Show" fans will be pleased to know that Wolfgang 
Amadeus Stallonies Von Funkenmeister and Pootie-T of the 
series' Color Me Badd-esque boy band Three Times One 
Minus One have added lyrics to their tune "Ew, Ew, Ew, Ew," 
transforming it into "Ronnie and Kayla's Love Theme," which 
will also appear on the soundtrack.

"Run, Ronnie, Run" traces the trials and tribulations of 
Ronnie Dobbs, an alleged criminal notorious for his multiple 
appearances on the TV show "Cops." Besides "Mr. Show" 
alums, the film also boasts appearances by Tenacious D's 
Jack Black, Dave Foley of "Kids in the Hall"/"Newsradio" 
fame, "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, 
former Conan O'Brien sidekick Andy Richter, and actors Jeff 
Goldblum, Garry Shandling and Ben Stiller, among others.
