Tom Morello is on a “Highway to Hell,” and he’s not alone.

The Rage Against the Machine guitarist has debuted a cover of the AC/DC classic alongside not one, but two rock icons: Bruce Springsteen, and Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder.

“Our version of ‘Highway to Hell’ pays homage to AC/DC but with Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, brings this legendary song into the future,” Morello says. “One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time sung by two of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll singers of all time. And then I drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”

The “Highway to Hell” cover is available now for digital download, and will also appear on Morello’s just-announced sophomore solo album, The Atlas Underground Fire. Like its predecessor, 2018’s The Atlas Underground, the upcoming record will feature a variety of guests, including grandson, Bring Me the Horizon, Phantogram, Damian Marley and Chris Stapleton, among many others.
