Davis called on his rap pals to double up as the rockers in promo TWISTED TRANSISTOR.
The rock frontman tells website Billboard.com the idea came to him while he was cruising around on a yacht in Monte Carlo.
He explains, "I flew it over to Dave Meyers, because he's the go-to guy for great hip-hop videos, and he spun it and wrote the treatment.
"Just getting four rappers in the same place is near f**king impossible, but we pulled it off... It's one of the coolest things I've ever seen."
