Marvel continues to use super-rock to soundtrack superhero movies.
Track: Soundgarden – Live To Rise
File Under: ‘Super-Rock’
Released on April 17 and downloaded over 350,000 times during its first week on iTunes after the band made it available free, Soundgarden’s Live To Rise now has a superheroic video to go with its anthemic chorus.
Avengers Assemble is the latest in a long line of rock tracks used by Marvel in their movies – Thor featured the Foo Fighters’ Walk, Spider-Man featured Aerosmith, Stone Sour, The Hives and more, Iron Man used the Sabbath song of the same name, and the Iron Man 2 soundtrack was essentially AC/DC’s greatest hits – proof is any were needed that rock music is still the most exciting music on the planet.
