Nirvana reunion song to be part of soundtrack to Dave Grohl's directorial debut film.Nirvana reunion song to be part of soundtrack to Dave Grohl's directorial debut film.

The song you heard last night at the 12/12/12 concert (if you stayed up late enough) was titled 'Cut Me Some Slack'.  This song is the result of the Nirvana reunion / Paul McCartney mashup and it will serve as part of the soundtrack to Sound City. Sound City ity is a film that Dave Grohl directed. It's a documentary chronicling the history of the Sound City recording studio over in Van Nuys, California. It has a notable history with some of the most legendary artists in music history laying down tracks there.

Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.

Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the television shows you may have used to watch. The combination of DuckTales and Rescue Rangers still holds a special place in my heart (although not mentioned on said list). Hey, remember The Jets?

Full setlist for Guitar Hero 5 surfaces online. Meh.Full setlist for Guitar Hero 5 surfaces online. Meh.

For some reason I find none of these songs seem to be compelling enough to make me want to buy another Guitar Hero game. Although it is nice to see a Gov't Mule tune making the list.
