Corey Taylor has revealed how his collaboration with Dave Grohl for the forthcoming "Sound City" documentary came about.

The film will tell the story of the legendary studio which was home to countless hit records by artists like Nirvana, Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

As part of the movie and to develop its soundtrack, Grohl grouped together a range of artists who have recorded at the studio over the decades, including Corey Taylor.

"I've known Dave since 2006, and he's always been one of the coolest, nicest dudes I've ever met," Taylor told Desert Uprising. "I had this campaign where I wanted to do a song with Dave Grohl. He finally sent an email to me about the "Sound City" documentary where [Slipknot album] "Iowa" was recorded.

"Dave wrote the song and sent me a demo of it. I was like, 'This is fantastic' and I wrote the first thing that came off the top of my head. He didn't even hear it until I went down to record it.

"We did it old-school to 2-inch tape, and that board man... it just sings."

Dave Grohl finished filming the "Sound City" documentary in July, but is yet to confirm its release date.

    This documentary needs to be released ASAP! Every time UG posts news about it, I get more and more excited.
    Wore a Probot shirt to a Foo FIghters show, can't count how many people were like "...who?"
    Gah! Unfortunate. I still can't seem to get my hands on a physical copy of the CD. It's never in stores and when I did try to buy it from eBay, it didn't arrive. Weird.
    I just spent 45 minutes going through the videos that pop up after the previous video is finished. How many shits do I give? ZERO, I love Grohl. It may be unhealthy but its ****ing Dave GROHL.
