I'm kinda disappointed the song they chose was "Surrender", since VR already did a studio cover of that.. and Scott's singing vocals on the Camp Freddy version. It'd be nicer if it was a different song they picked to cover, something new altogether. But this is still something. Album can't be too far away! :)

According to Morrison, "We have finished three tracks, of which two will make the movie and the soundtrack album. One is CHEAP TRICK's 'Surrender', and the other is a choice between '20th Century Boy' [MARC BOLAN] and 'The Jean Genie' [DAVID BOWIE]. The tracks came out really well."

That's cool! The Camp Freddy live versions I've heard has been very similar to VR's version, but I hope they managed to give it a slightly different twist in the studio...

i allready have both tracks from the EOTM soundtrack and they rock-surrender is a little better than vr's in my opinion, the drums are the same if not a little lighter sounding but the guitars are awesome with a solo by dave chucked in for good measures.
