Trent Reznor - Dragon Tattoo Score

Earlier this year, a trailer for David Fincher’s Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie featured a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” from Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor, who also teamed up with Atticus Ross to score the movie, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs main lady Karen O. And as the movie’s theatrical opening draws ever nearer, a full version of that cover has finally hit the internet. It’s got heavy, stomping industrialized drums and a Karen O vocal performance so feral and piercing that it really lands somewhere in Robert Plant’s orbit. Give it a listen below.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s score is out 12/9 digitally, 12/27 on triple-CD, and 2/6 in a deluxe package. It’ll be out on Reznor’s own Null Corporation in North America and Mute everywhere else. At the moment, you can get a six-track sampler of it by dropping an email address at the Null Corporation website.

  1. I usually hate covers, and I REALLY love Led Zeppelin, but this is pretty interesting! I dig it!

  2. I really like it.

  3. An interesting cover……but there seems to a lot of processing on the voice and the instrumentation….not up to LZ standards….but still worthwhile

  4. Oh Lord Have Mercy! This is the opening song to the soundtrack?

    Trent Reznor truly loves us.

  5. Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see

  6. It’s a rather simple song with rather simple elements, in that respect it’s incredibly easy to “cover” but the truth is that it’s very fucking difficult to cover well. I really dig this


  8. I usually hate Led Zeppelin covers… until now
