"What's also cool about the project is that each band will be given their own page in the CD booklet to contribute whatever artwork they want," Buddyhead honcho Travis Keller told Billboard.com in May. Additional artwork will be created by acclaimed artist Raymond Pettibon, best known for his hand-drawn posters of underground rock acts.
Hosted by Iggy Pop, the 22-track "Gimme Skelter" also features a handful of interludes and two bonus tracks: Shat's "What the F*** Do You Think Christina Aguilera Is Doing Right Now?" and an interview of Pop by Nardwaur the Human Serviette.
