Californication Soundtrack Features Covers Of Metallica, Bowie, Iron Maiden
The popular Showtime series Californication returns for its sixth season Sunday January 13 at 10:30pm, and two days later, the show’s soundtrack will be released, featuring covers of some iconic classic rock and metal artists.
Former Sex Pistol Steve Jones leads off the album with a cover of David Bowie‘s “Suffragette City,” and country-rocker Ryan Adams does a much different take on Iron Maiden’s metal classic “Wasted Years” (watch Adams perform it here). Up-and-coming Americana singer Lissie offers a not-too-different version of Metallica‘s ballad “Nothing Else Matters.” (watch below). Elsewhere, L.A. folk rock band Hi Ho Silver Oh covers Tom Petty‘s solo song “Time To Move On” (hear it here).
The soundtrack also includes rocker Marilyn Manson covering Depeche Mode‘s “Personal Jesus,” the late New York Dolls member Johnny Thunders’ solo song “You Can’t Put Your Arms ‘Round A Memory,” Warren Zevon’s “For My Next Trick, I’ll Need A Volunteer” from his chillingly titled 2000 album Life’ll Kill Ya, and Joe Walsh’s “Funk 50″ from his latest album, Analog Man.
