Biography

Class of ‘99 was a shortlived band consisting solely of members from notable rock bands: Layne Staley of Alice in Chains as the vocalist, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine (and later Audioslave) on guitar, Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction as the drummer, bassist Martyn LeNoble of Porno For Pyros and with the help of Matt Serletic on keyboards.

These four musicians collaborated to cover Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” parts 1 and 2 for the soundtrack to Robert Rodriguez’s 1998 horror/sci-fi film, The Faculty. In 1999, the single of this song was released on the Sony International record label. It also contained versions of “Another Brick in the Wall” part 1 and “Another Brick in the Wall” part 2 by Class of ‘99, plus Stabbing Westward’s “Haunting Me”.

The “Another Brick in the Wall” part 2 video was directed by Jim Shea. While the other members of the band were filmed specifically for the video, Staley’s appearance consisted of footage pulled from Mad Season’s 1995 Live at the Moore video. The video aired for the first time in January 1999.
