If you're gonna do it, then do it right. That seems to be the driving force behind the decisions on the soundtrack for the upcoming surfing drama "Chasing Mavericks." Telling the true story of surfer Jay Moriarity who rode the waves and climbed to fame during the '90s, the tunes for the film are appropriately pulled from college radio, providing a pretty fierce flashback of sorts for anyone who came of age in the era of grunge and flannel.

Chasing Mavericks Soundtrack

If you're gonna do it, then do it right. That seems to be the driving force behind the decisions on the soundtrack for the upcoming surfing drama "Chasing Mavericks." Telling the true story of surfer Jay Moriarity who rode the waves and climbed to fame during the '90s, the tunes for the film are appropriately pulled from college radio, providing a pretty fierce flashback of sorts for anyone who came of age in the era of grunge and flannel.

For those of you who like it a bit loud, the film will feature songs by Dinosaur Jr., Matthew Sweet, Sponge (we totally forgot about those guys) and eternal oddballs Butthole Surfers. For something a bit sweet, Cornershop's earworm "Brimful Of Asha" slides onto the playlist along with The Lemonheads' "Into Your Arms," while Mazzy Star seduces you with two tracks all her own. And the set is rounded out with a tune by Greg Holden and some score material by Chad Fischer. All in all? Not too shabby.

The songs will be available digitally starting on October 23rd with the movie landing on October 26th. If you prefer a hard format, you can buy the CD on November 19th. Tracklisting and samples below. [Film Music Reporter]
