Now that the Man of Steel has been in theaters for two weeks, aggravating viewers with how much damage Superman amassed, most of our attention has turned towards other blockbuster goodies like, um, White House Down, and, uh, The Lone Ranger. But before you clog your noggin’ with images of a sweaty Channing Tatum or an obnoxious Johnny Depp, revisit Man of Steel for just one more minute — specifically its soundtrack. It would be appear that acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer’s collaborative Rolodex expands past the likes of Johnny Marr.

As Antiquiet reports, Zimmer was joined by an army of famed drummers for Man of Steel, specifically: Matt Chamberlain (of Pearl Jam), Josh Freese (of Devo, NIN, A Perfect Circle), Danny Carey (of Tool), Jason Bonham (of the late John), Pharrell Williams, Sheila E., John JR Robinson, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos, Jim Keltner, Vinnie Colaiuta, Bernie Dresel, Curt Bisquera, Trevor Lawrence, Jr., and Ryeland Allison. Stewart Copeland, Dave Grohl, and Taylor Hawkins must not have received the memo, or were out getting burritos that day, who knows.

In light of the special collaboration, a few moments from the score’s recording sessions were captured on tape, and you can catch it all captured in a short film below.

The official score is out now via Warner Bros. Records. The film’s on any silver screen within five miles of your house.

Gene Hoglan. Dave Lombardo.

The headline is ironic considering it appears under a story about Andrew WK, a drummer that doesn’t appear on the soundtrack that I wouldn’t have thought of it not for the other article’s proximity to this one.

Don’t you mean Matt Cameron of Pearl Jam….
