So, it's summer, and what better season is there for lighting one up, throwing on some chill tunes and whiling away a lazy weekend? While we officially don't condone those sorts of activities, unofficially we might, but either way, if you need to re-up your stash you might track down a couple of laid back bros like Ben and Chon in Oliver Stone's "Savages." Though hopefully, you won't get caught in the crossfire. Squaring off against a Mexican cartel looking to take over their turf, their shared girlfriend O is kidnapped, raising the stakes, and needless to say the results are explosive. And, the tunes on the soundtrack are equally fiery.

So, it's summer, and what better season is there for lighting one up, throwing on some chill tunes and whiling away a lazy weekend? While we officially don't condone those sorts of activities, unofficially we might, but either way, if you need to re-up your stash you might track down a couple of laid back bros like Ben and Chon in Oliver Stone's "Savages." Though hopefully, you won't get caught in the crossfire. Squaring off against a Mexican cartel looking to take over their turf, their shared girlfriend O is kidnapped, raising the stakes, and needless to say the results are explosive. And, the tunes on the soundtrack are equally fiery.

M. Ward, Bob Dylan, Peter Tosh (guess which song?), Massive Attack, Cut Copy and more promise to keep things moving in this pretty solid collection of tunes, while Bruce Lash offers up a super chilled over of Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" and Yuna tackles The Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun" with an appropriately Eastern tinged vibe. Meanwhile, some of the cuts that didn't make the official soundtrack include electro tunes "Go Hawaii" by Casino Versus Japan, "Bubblin' In The Cut" by Boreta and "Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!!" by Trentemoller.

The soundtrack hits stores on July 3rd with movie landing on Friday, July 6th. Check out the full tracklisting below along with the additoinal songs in the movie. Want to find out what tune you liked? Check out the samples on page 2.
