Sum 41 covers Helix on soundtrack

The soundtrack to the Canadian indie film “FUBAR” will feature Sum 41 and a host of Canadian acts covering early Canadian gold.

Organizers of the “FUBAR” album told JAM! Music that Sum 41 will cover Helix’s “Rock You” on the soundtrack, which is due during the third week of May.

Treble Charger is expected to contribute a rendition of April Wine’s “Roller,” while Vancouver’s New Pornographers offer up their take on “Your Daddy Don’t Know” by the band Toronto.

Chixdiggit will have a go at Loverboy’s “The Kid Is Hot Tonight,” No Means No takes on Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My,” Gob has a kick at Kick Axe’s “Heavy Metal Shuffle,” Grimskunk remakes Trooper’s party anthem “Raise A Little Hell”, and English Teeth gas up Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “Four Wheel Drive.”

“FUBAR” was shot in Calgary and has been described as a largely improvised 78-minute tribute to metal music and its devotees. Writer-producers Paul Spence and Dave Lawrence and director Michael Dowse showed the film at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

The film is scheduled for full theatrical release this spring.
