In Flames vs. Trent Reznor + Karen O – Cage Match
In Flames took care of Dead Letter Circus in yesterday’s Cage Match. Will their track ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’ gain another victory against an updated version of a classic song in today’s match-up?
Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and his soundtrack-writing partner Atticus Ross teamed up with Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O to cover the Led Zeppelin classic ‘Immigrant Song’ for the latest film adaptation of the novel ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,’ which takes place in Sweden and is based on the novel by Swedish author Stieg Larsson.
With In Flames hailing from Sweden, we’ve come up with a film title of our own for this battle — ‘Cage Match: The Swedish Connection.’
Will Reznor and Karen O take down In Flames or will the Swedish rockers show the American duo ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’ in this Cage Match? Listen to the songs below and vote for your favorite:

Rules of Cage Match:
There are no rules … except this one: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
