While reading some stuff online it looks like Tom Morello is a busy man. Not only is he playing still playing with what is argueably one of the best bands to come out of the 90′s, Rage Against The Machine, and his other side projects like Street Sweeper Social Club with Boots Riley as well as continuing his solo acoustic protest music as The Nightwatchman, Morello let it drop over the weekend that he is also scoring some songs for Iron Man 2 via his twitter.

Apparantly he had a cameo in the movie as one of the terrorists (which I also found out through his tweet), so I guess it isn’t surprising he would be contributing to the soundtrack as well. Even though it wasn’t in the soundtrack that was released, Audioslave’s Cochise was used in one of the trailers. Morello wasn’t the only musician to have a cameo in Iron Man. Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah also had a brief cameo (which was cut from the film but is present in the extras) when Tony Starks was introduced to…..Tony Starks a.k.a. Ghostface Killah. All of the Wu-Tang members have multiple aliases and a few of them use some of their favorite comic characters names. I wonder if Ghostface will contribute any work to the soundtrack as well…
