And, along with its debut, the band has dropped two new songs from the official soundtrack.
Now, we have two new tracks “Ride With The Devil” and “Crash And Burn” for the soundtrack of the film. You can listen to those new songs below.
MGK plays drummer Tommy Lee in The Dirt and Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson also appears in the film. MGK recently revealed he spent over four months learning the band’s signature drum stick move. In a story with USA Today, MGK says that he garnered calluses on his hands just to learn how to twirl the drum sticks.
“I had that damn drumstick in my hand for four months straight, dude,” MGK says. “I have giant calluses in between my middle finger and my index finger just spinning that damn stick. So I hope you enjoy the stick twirls in that movie.”
The Dirt is based on the group memoir the band wrote in 2001 of the same name. The book was apparently MGK’s “bible” growing up, even though he realizes that might have been a bit problematic.
“When you’re 13, you don’t really understand problems too much, so you’re just looking at all the things that glitter. It wasn’t until we were on set and doing these scenes that we were like, ‘Whoa, this is dark. What are people going to think about this?’” the rapper said. “But there’s something about the truth in that book — the fact that you do fall in love with these people [who] then do this giant nose dive into this dark place.”
The Dirt is available on Netflix now. You can watch the trailer below.
