The list of performers at the 2016 Grammy Awards just got a little hotter and a little more rock-n-roll.

Johnny Depp will take the stage with Alice Cooper and their heavy metal supergroup, The Hollywood Vampires—which also includes Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan—in what will mark their very first television performance after their 2015 debut.

Their hard rock performance will definitely add some edge to the awards show as they pay tribute to late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister and premiere their new song, "As Bad as I Am."

After the news was announced Thursday, Cooper told Rolling Stone, "We started this band as a means to toast our 'dead drunk friends' at the Rainbow, all the ghosts in the bar, and now I guess Lemmy is involved in that, too.

He added, "Lemmy was one of those salt-of-the-earth guys. Find me somebody who didn't love Lemmy. He's just one of those guys that's impossible not to like."

Though nothing is set in stone yet for the show, Cooper says he hopes to play Motörhead's "Ace of Spades." He's also excited for the opportunity to share "As Bad as I Am" with the world.

"I like that it's a pure rocker," he told RS. "It moves. It's what I think rock & roll needs right now."
