HEAR A SAMPLE OF OSCAR WINNING COMPOSER TRENT REZNOR COVERING LED ZEPPELIN FOR THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

The new red band (read: NSFW) trailer for David Fincher’s cinematic adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s everyone-but-me-has-read-it international bestseller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is out in the world. And, holy shit, someone filmed it on their cell phone because they were so desperate to share it and/or watch it on a loop that they couldn’t be bothered to wait until it officially appears online later this week. This is the world which we now inhabit.

ANYWAY, the trailer is of interest to the metal community because a) as you probably already know, Oscar-winning composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are scoring the film, and b) the trailer features a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” recorded by Reznor and Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It seems safe to assume that Ross probably had more than a little something to do with the track, too, but Ross still doesn’t get any credit for all the work he does (check out the documentary about the making of the music for The Social Network on that film’s DVD if you want to get a better sense of how vital he has become to shaping Reznor’s sound), so as of yet he involvement hasn’t been officially confirmed.

Check out the trailer/song below. Hopefully a better version will turn up online soon.
