(Radio.com) The Dan Band, whose expletive-ridden sendups of wedding ballads found their way into movies like Old School and The Hangover, has settled down to make The Wedding Album, a covers collection for Comedy Central Records due out this December.

Already the wedding party includes some notable guests. Frontman Dan Finnerty tells Radio.com he recorded a version of Air Supply's "Making Love Out of Nothing at All" with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger in April. Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt produced the duet, which also features Rihanna's touring band.

Scherzinger will also sing on a Dan Band original, "Shake," which Finnerty vows "will be a new wedding version of the 'Macarena.'" For the music video, he'll play a restroom attendant on urinal patrol, demanding men to "shake" before they "pay to pee."

"It won't get crazy inappropriate," he said of the The Wedding Album, which will follow the progress of a wedding reception, beginning with a first-dance song, "I Hope We F**king Never Break Up." He and Rob Thomas have discussed producing The Wedding Album once Matchbox 20 wraps its summer tour, Thomas' management confirmed to Radio.com.

Also on Finnerty's registry: holding out for Questlove of the Roots to produce and play on a cover of Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You." Melissa Etheridge, also on the group's radar, sang "Ave Maria" at Finnerty's wedding to actress Kathy Najimy in 1998. Meanwhile, he has yet to connect with Bonnie Tyler about collaborating on "an epic remake" of the Dan Band's best-known cover, "Total Eclipse of the Heart." more on this story
