Listen: Trent Reznor & Karen O. Cover Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" For "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is the man you want to score your Hollywood blockbuster, and he's got the Golden Globe to prove it. That win hasn't slowed him down in the least, though - he and partner Atticus Ross have continued to spend this year churning through the score for the upcoming David Fincher film adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

While I admittedly know nothing about the book, the movie itself looks pretty badass, and one standout track from the score itself is Reznor's teamup with Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O. on a cover of Led Zeppelin's classic "Immigrant Song." Providing further evidence for our "Karen O. Turns Everything She Guests On To Gold" theory, the cover features her rocking an excellent Robert Plant wail over Reznor's thundering NIN instrumentals.

Check it out after the jump, and if you're looking to hear more of the soundtrack, you can hit up the Nine Inch Nails website where you can get a 6-song sampler in exchange for your email.
