While the Marvel mega merchandising and marketing machine has left no stone unturned, the soundtracks for their film have always been pretty random affairs. Last year's collection of tunes for "The Avengers" was hilariously out of touch with lots of meathead music, while the AC/DC powered tuneage for "Iron Man 2" was particularly uninspired. But it seems that for "Iron Man 3," the comic studio has hired some people who know a thing or two about what the kids want to hear and have pulled together a halfway respectable line up.
Featuring "music from and inspired by" the superhero sequel (meaning you probably won't hear most of this in the actual movie), hipsters will approve of Passion Pit, Imagine Dragons and Rogue Wave making appearances. Dudes who still wanna rawk will get a tune from Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother, tweens will scream for 3OH!3 and those looking for some chill electronica can bliss out to Mr. Little Jeans. So all told, not bad.
Entitled "Heroes Fall," the compilation will drop on April 30th with the movie arriving on May 3rd. Tracklist below.
