Foo Fighters, Used, Yellowcard On Rock Against Bush Vol. 2

A week after the compilation Rock Against Bush Vol. 1 was released, a sequel to the politically minded compilation is taking shape.

The Foo Fighters will contribute their cover of “Gas Chamber,” a song originally recorded by L.A. punks the Angry Samoans, which appeared as a B-side to the Foos’ 1996 CD single “Big Me.” The original tune appeared on the Angry Samoans’ second album, 1982’s Back From Samoa.

The inclusion of Bad Religion’s “Let Them Eat War,” from June 8’s The Empire Strikes First, is also confirmed for Rock Against Bush Vol. 2, which is expected to drop in August. Tracks from the Used, Yellowcard and Flogging Molly will also appear, according to a spokesperson for label Fat Wreck Chords.

“Comforting Lie” from No Doubt’s third album, 2000’s Return of Saturn, is expected to be included, as is a contribution from Green Day. NOFX frontman Fat Mike, who runs Fat Wreck Chords, is spearheading the series and has extended an invitation to Good Charlotte.

Rock Against Bush Vol. 1, featuring contributions from Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, the Offspring, Ministry, the Ataris and New Found Glory, was released April 20. It sold nearly 20,000 copies in its first week and debuted on the new Billboard 200 albums chart at #54.
