Here's an interesting fact we learned today: Lowe was once married to Johnny Cash's step-daughter, and now Lanegan is covering the Lowe song that Cash himself covered. If the song sounds familiar, it's probably because you remember it from the closing credits of the first episode of The Sopranos.
"The Beast in Me" isn't the only gem on the Hangover 2 soundtrack though: There's a pair of Billy Joel tracks ("The Downeaster 'Alexa' " and Ed Helms' "Allentown" parody), Jenny Lewis' Acid Tongue track "Bad Man's World," Kanye West, Wolfmother, and... Mike Tyson covering Murray Head's "One Night In Bangkok." Maybe take that $12 you were going to spend on a ticket to see this movie Memorial Day weekend and re-invest it in the soundtrack.
