Dave Grohl has posted another song from his forthcoming "Sound City" movie soundtrack, this time featuring Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor. You can hear it in the player below.

Meanwhile, Grohl has revealed that the song he wrote with Sir Paul McCartney was written and recorded in just 3 hours, adding that McCartney was "just the sweetest, nicest, most awesome person".

A reformed Nirvana lineup went on to perform the song with The Beatles legend at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert.

"We walked in; we jammed the song. It just came out of nowhere. The best songs happen that way," Grohl told KROQ. "We recorded it live and put a vocal over it and that was it. It was three hours and it was perfect."

"One of the great things about playing with Paul McCartney or playing with Neil Young is that that generation of musicians, they cherish and respect and value the practice of just going into a room and coming up with something and jamming and making it a song," Grohl added. "There's not like seven songwriters and seven producers and digital technology or whatever. It's like people getting in a room."

    Great ! I'm not fan of Corey or Slipknot but i'm surprised with your performance...
    I'm confused, was this article about Corey Taylor or Paul McCartney?
    This was pretty awesome, looking forward to the finished product of this movie.
    If you don't think Dave Grohl is a great drummer, listen to The Colour and the Shape over again and DARE to come back. The verse drum part in Everlong still blows my mind. Every song on that album Dave Grohl doing what he does best, including drums.
    I was more excited about Scott Reeder's appearance but then was disappoint.

    I couldn't picture the combination of those two working out, but this song proved me wrong. It's freakin good. When the distortion kicks in it reminds me of Blackbird by Alter Bridge.
    The darkness and feeling combined in this song are amazing... Dave never stops comming up with stuff like this. I mean lets face it, he is not a GREAT drummer, he is good, neither a guitarrist, or a singer, he is good at all that but not THAT good... But everything he does in music is simply gold, I don't know how he does that, but he does it.
    "Dave Grohl is not a great drummer" You on drugs or something?
    There is a step before great, he is really good, but not great.
    there's this song by nirvana tho, "smells like teen spirit". it has this little fill at the beginning that everyone and their grandmother air drums along with as the song kicks in. that's because it's perfect, and it's perfect because dave grohl is an amazing drummer.
    except Grohl didn't play drums on Nevermind. He was added after the album was recorded. Nice try though. I'm not even a Nirvana fan and I know that one.
    "Except Grohl didn't play drums on Nevermind" anyone else facepalm when they read that?
    Thats why Grohl has songwriting credits on the song right? because he was added after it was written and recorded.
    I mean seriously. You're already on the Internet, you couldn't take the extra 10 seconds to look it up on Wikipedia before making an idiot out of yourself?
    Grohl was added after BLEACH, not Nevermind. Get your facts straight before you go on a website crawling with rockers trying to say that Dave Grohl isn't a great drummer. You're right though, he isn't great. He is abso****inglutely amazing.
    all of you that replied to bobbyk1978 just lost. please don't feed the trolls
    I dk, I think Grohl is an incredible drummer. Sure maybe he doesn't rip like matt greiner or neil peart but his drum lines are always appropriate and tasty and have his big signature sound that makes my heart pop. Im always excited when i hear grohl is gunna be drumming on a track cuz i know i have a good beat to look forward to.
    Be careful not to confuse skill with style. Grohl has tonnes of both but his style lends itself to a more simple type of music. If you put him in a band and told him to go nuts he would be up there with the greats (although I hope he keeps doing what he's doing).
    How do you know this? I bet there are atleast 100,000 "unknown" drummers around the world that would smoke him
    I thick Corey's got a pretty good voice but I just personally find some of his lyrics kinda cheesy, especially in Stone Sour and more recent Slipknot. Can't deny he has a versatile voice though. I was quite skeptical on how he'd sound on a song with Dave Grohl and Scott Reeder but I'm actually digging it
    Wow, i was really dubious when i first heard that Corey Taylor was going to be on the record, i thought it'd be like some pansy Slipknot song, but this actually pretty ok. Not as great as Cut Me Some Slack, but it's a tight song. Great filler piece at the least! Can't wait to hear more from Sound City.
    Sounds like Kiss - I Still Love You. Check it out it's a pretty good song, even if you most of you think Kiss is shite.
    Bitchin', though I thought the lead was a bit buried in the mix. I'm really looking forward to seeing the film!
    I have A LOT of RESPECT for this Dave Grohl stand about fighting the digital edition and copy/paste attitude that reigns in music these days. In my point of view there is nothing wrong with a bit of accidental feedback or a lyrics that is shouted when it should have been sung mellow.
