5 Dream Pairings For The New “Carpool Karaoke”

In case you didn’t hear, Late Late Show host James Corden struck a deal with Apple Music to develop his popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment into a series.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the first season will contain 16 episodes of unique pairings, including Corden with Will Smith (which is Corden only appearance on the series) and Metallica with comedian Billy Eichner.

This got us thinking about other pairings from the rock world we’d love to see drive around together and came up with these five dream pairings.  Agree?  Disagree?  Let us know in the comments, as well as your dream pairing suggestions!

Lzzy Hale & Joan Jett

A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and the one of the most talented rock vocalists (male or female) out today?  Who wouldn’t want to see that?!

Courtney Love & Marilyn Manson

These two have butt heads a number of times in the past, and while they’re on pretty good terms now, it still would be cool to see what would happen when Courtney and Marilyn are confind in a small space.

Chris Jericho & M. Shadows

The WWE icon/Fozzy frontman is already good friends with the Avenged Sevenfold vocalist.  (Jericho even helped out with A7X’s recent surprise album release.)  We would like to see what would unfold in a format like “Carpool Karaoke.”

Jack Black & Rob Halford

“The Metal God” and one of the biggest metalheads together would be a funny watch, if only for Jack Black’s potential of fanning out.

Nicolas Cage & Axl Rose

Like Jericho and Shadows, Cage and Rose are also friends, which sort of makes sense since they’re both so enigmatic, but we bet neither would be very comfortable in this setting.  It’d be so odd, Apple Music would have to rename their episode “Car Crash Karaoke.”
