The Warriors

Before the release of The Warriors in 2005, it was announced that Homme's band Queens of the Stone Age would contribute an exclusive track to the in-game soundtrack, "In the City", a cover of a Joe Walsh song. Upon the games release fans noticed that the song was not in the game at all. This would lead to rumors that the song would only be available on the CD soundtrack for the game. The track was absent from this release as well and the song has not been heard from by anyone. Some wonder if it was ever even recorded.
