The full track listing for the upcoming "Axis Of Justice Concert Series, Vol. 1" CD/DVD package has been unveiled.

The CD features collaborative performances from Audioslave vocalist Chris Cornell, drummer Brad Wilk and guitarist Tom Morello, Tool singer Maynard James Keenan, System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian, singer/songwriter Pete Yorn, and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, as well as rappers Jurassic 5.

Morello also plays solo as his alter ego, the Nightwatchman. The DVD includes many of the same performances, along with skits, spoken word segments and interviews with filmmaker Michael Moore and actor and radio host Janeane Garofalo.

Axis Of Justice is a political activism organization founded by Tankian and Morello, who says he doesn't understand why many feel musicians shouldn't get involved in social and political issues.

"People ask the most asinine question, like, well, why -- 'I don't want to hear from you -- shut up and rock,' you know. But when you pick up a guitar, you don't put down your First Amendment rights. What I would say is 'You should be speaking out as well.' Like, why should we just leave it to a bunch of billionaires and crooks to run our country?"

Among the songs performed on the CD are U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name," Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding," Bob Dylan's "Chimes Of Freedom" and Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up."

"Axis Of Justice Concert Series, Vol. 1" is due out on November 16th through Serjical Strike/Columbia Records. Serjical Strike is Serj Tankian's custom label.

To random chick: If you want a site with all the latest concerts, I would recommend pollstar.com. You can look up concerts by artists, city or venue.

Can't f***in wait for a new Tool and SOAD cd. Nowadays there's just too many d.ick riders in the music business, so too much of that fake music is floating out there. I will definitely check this Axis of Justice cd out.

Tom Morello is the most overrated guitarist of the 90s. Well, other than anyone related to nu metal.
