Zombies Soundtrack #9: Jacob

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , , , on 09/27/2012 by Taylor Holt

By far the most “Western” of all the soundtracks thus far, this one brings more images to mind of the aftermath rather than the chaos as most soundtracks would. When the dust settles, I imagine sitting on the porch of a house like the one in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, just rocking back and forth as society is slowly being rebuilt somewhere else, while the country remains the same. With a bunch of rotting corpses strewn everywhere too of course. I had to leave a link to Murder by Death’s song, as it happens to be my favorite from them and their new album Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon came out just a couple days ago. Look’er up! How do more of you not include Social D on your soundtracks? Shame on you!

Murderin’ it up.

1. The Avett Brothers– Jenny And The Summer Day. Self Explanatory.

2. Kris Kristofferson– Sunday Morning Coming Down. Can you imagine the scene this song creates only with zombies added to it? Man, if you think your hangover sucks you’re really in for a bad day.

3. Deer Tick– Straight Into A Storm. The perfect song for deciding to face the situation head on.

4. Mumford & Sons– Dust Bowl Dance. I think this song is cool to start the killing segment with because it is about someone gradually being pushed to that limit.

5. John Mark McMillan– The Reckoning Day

6. Murder By Death– Ash. Another cool apocalyptic song.

7. Social Distortion– Down On The World. I knew I wanted Social D for this one but it was hard to choose one song.

8. Squad Five-O– Don’t Look Back. North to the future on the stereo! Gotta love the shout out to fellow GA band Joe Christmas but this song was chosen because it fits the theme perfectly. If you can get past the cheesy fake 80’s rock sound, for some reason I love it.

9. John Mark McMillan- The Reckoning Day. This song is really the perfect song. It sounds almost as if it was written about life post zombie apocalypse. In a way it was – it’s a worship song about Jesus’ return. “Come untied from the weight of the age.”

Bonus Track

10. The Zombies– How We Were Before. Picture zombies slow dancing to this one – pretty funny huh?

Here we have a list I’ve been expecting since I’ve been posting zombie soundtracks. Neon Trees was a new one for me, although 5 million views tells me I’m not hip with it. I’ve never been a big fan of Atreyu but the chosen song seems to fit zombie killing pretty well. Before listening to Nonpoint’s second, just by the title alone, it seems like a good song to go out on. As far as Lacuna Coil goes, I’ve left a link to the video. I’ve got to give credit to a band that has a lead singer that looks as good as she does and still focus on the other front man who looks like he’d be Pedro’s dad from Napoleon Dynamite.

1. Neon Trees- Everybody Talks

2. Twisted Method- Inside Out

3. Thousand Foot Krutch- Fire It Up

4. Rise Against- But Tonight We Dance

5. Atreyu- Slow Burn

6. Nonpoint- Bullet With A Name

7. The Used- Poetic Tragedy

8. Lacuna Coil- Trip The Darkness

9. Nonpoint- What A Day

Zombie Soundtrack #7: Jake

Kickin’ it old school with this one. No, not the terrible Jamie Kennedy movie from a few years ago, but just about all the songs on this Post-Apocalyptic soundtrack aren’t just from the 80’s- some are near representations of the 80’s. Long Tall Sally may be a little older, but c’mon, we love that song because of Predator (1987).

Couldn’t have said it better with Meat Loaf’s Bat out of Hell. That was a terrible pun, but I still hope someone got it. Kenny Loggins can thank Goose and Maverick ( or is it the other way around?) for the popularity of Danger Zone, and it just keeps going. Our man Jake sees himself as a zombie-destroying Rocky, while every zombie is an Ivan Drago, if you listen to tracks seven and eight. And in a battle against the rest of the undead world, there’s nothing wrong with that. ‘Cause if they can change…then you can change…

1) Little Richard- Long Tall Sally

2) Kenny Loggins- Danger Zone

3) Robert Cuccioli- This is the Moment (Jekyll and Hyde the Broadway musical)

4) Meat Loaf- Bat out of Hell

5) Queen- Another One Bites the Dust

6) Michael Jackson- Thriller

7) Robert Tepper- No Way Out

8. John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band- Hearts on Fire

9) Bon Jovi- Wanted (Dead or Alive)

Zombie Soundtrack #6: Brandon

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , , on 06/16/2012 by Taylor Holt
Here’s one for the troubled youths out there going through a zombie apocalypse and they’re missin’ that special someone… Since most of these soundtracks are made up of primarily Rock, why not go all the way with some Skid Row and Judas Priest? There’s already a zombie apocalypse, so might as well go all out. Streetlight Manifesto’s an interesting choice for anything involving a post-mortem revolution while a heavier band like Chimera could definitely be seen as the introduction to the beginning of the end. I’m feeling a little bit of a Fallout 3 vibe with our last track by The Ink Spots, which just makes me want to hang out in a diner and drink a milkshake while the world outside is burning down (I just fit in a reference to Chapter 12 in The Dead and the Dying, aw yeah, promoting my story on my own site). Be cool out there, boppers, and stay away from those bath salts.

1. Streetlight Manifesto- A Better Place, A Better Time
2. Chimera- Born in Blood
3. Streetlight Manifesto- Moment of Violence
4. Skid Row- When God Can’t Wait
5. Johnny Cash- The Man Comes Around
6. Judas Priest- A Touch of Evil
7. System of a Down- Roulette
8. As I Lay Dying- Anodyne Sea
9.  The Ink Spots- Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall

Zombie Soundtrack #5: Matt

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , , , , on 06/03/2012 by Taylor Holt

Hey, now. Matt’s opening track is making me think he’s livin’ large. We’re going in and out of old school rock/folk and new age remixes, which is an interesting compilation. Pretty good summation of a zombie Apocalypse, if you ask me. Living in the information age one moment, while the next has us scrounging for anything that isn’t contaminated; supplies, food, even people. Clint Mansel’s theme for Requiem still might be the most intense music I’ve ever heard even to this day. I was listening to it while typing everything out and didn’t realize how stressed out I was getting until it was all over and I could breathe again. It’s also fitting to post this due to the Keith David post yesterday. Man, that’s a depressing movie. Way to go, Matt. Such a downer…

If you want your own soundtrack up, click here. The favored soundtrack after 12 are posted gets a lil sum’in sum’in. Is that how you spell it? I should just stop. –T

1. Pretty Lights- Empire State of Mind (Remix)

2. Johnny Cash- God’s Gonna Cut You Down

3. Simon and Garfunkel- The Boxer

4. Skrillex- Reptile

5. Led Zeppelin- When the Levee Breaks

6. Metallica- Master of Puppets

7. Clint Mansell- Requiem for a Dream

8. Nero- Syndicate

9. Faces- O0h la la

Zombie Soundtrack #4: Josh

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , , , , on 05/23/2012 by Taylor Holt

As far as the weirdest list goes, Josh is the winner by a longshot. Anybody that put KC & the Sunshine band’s Boogeyman as their “All is Well” track (the song that describes your life before the zombie outbreak) has got to have issues; mentally or otherwise. All kidding aside, I’d say it’s an interesting mix. We’re mostly dealing with industrial/electronic on this one, with a few edgier ones thrown in. Miami Showdown has a nice “building toward climax” feel, very easy to imagine killing zombies too. I’ve put a link in for the Gorillaz song because the video is just so dang good. The Royksopp video is also there just because it’s so dang weird. Can’t go wrong with A Perfect Circle either. Good list.

If you want your own soundtrack posted, read this.T


1. KC & the Sunshine Band- Boogeyman

2. A Perfect Circle- Blue

3. Nine Inch Nails- Survivalism

4. Crystal Castles- Doe Deer

5. Mudvayne- Determined

6. Miami Showdown- Digitalism

7. Royksopp- What Else is There?

8. Howl- Switchblade Eyes

9. Gorillaz- Stylo

B-Side! In a twist of Shyamalan proportions, this entry also came with a second set of songs.

1. Crystal Castles- Suffocation

2. The Mars Volta- The Widow

3. Cut Copy- Future

4. Klaxons- Atlantis to Interzone

5. Stone Sour- Get Inside

6. Mudvayne- On the Move

7. My Morning Jacket- Rocketman

8. Metric- Succexy

9. Boy Kill Boy- Suzie

Zombie Soundtrack #3: Jessica

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , , , , , on 05/09/2012 by Taylor Holt
I imagine this soundtrack fitting into a zombie movie where all the characters are in their early twenties and, thank God, a zombie apocalypse broke out because they weren’t doing anything with their lives. Maybe like Idle Hands (1999) but with zombies. That had a pretty good soundtrack. In fact, that was about the only decent thing about that movie, if that. One thing’s for sure, Deftones seems to have a place guaranteed on any list I post and Jessica evidently loves Jimmy Eat World. Which is cool with me. If you want your own soundtrack posted, read this. – T
1. Taking Back Sunday- You Know How I do
2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs- No No No
3. Deftones- Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)
4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs- Man
5. Jimmy Eat World- Thinking that is All
6. The Joy Formidable- The Magnifying Glass
7. Jawbreaker- Accident Prone
8. Jimmy Eat World- Firefight
9. Paramore- Franklin

Zombie Soundtrack #2: Marcus

Right off, how can you go wrong with Motorhead on your zombie soundtrack? The answer is that you can’t. It’s perfect.. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, or Channing Tatum and terrible acting; they just GO TOGETHER. I find Eels to be a funny choice especially for the particular theme of a zombie uprising, but it’s easy to imagine the slowed down, happy-go-lucky feeling as zombies tear through an overly colorful, Edward Scissorhands-style suburbia. -T

1. Dream Academy – Life in a Northern Town

2. Eels – Beloved Monster

3. Gheorghe Zamfir – Lonely Shephard

4. Motorhead – Ace of Spades

6. Iron Maiden – Wicker Man

7. ES Posthumus – Nara

8. Enigma – Silent Warrior

9. Delerium – Run for It (radio version)

Zombie Soundtrack #1: Walt

Posted in Zombie Soundtracks with tags , , on 04/07/2012 by Taylor Holt

I like this list. It wasn’t enough for him to put the songs up, but a short reasoning as well. I can dig it. Helter Skelter is a nice choice for a zombie takeover, and he’s got Deftones so I can’t not appreciate that. Give this man a hand, he also threw in some Journey. If you want to submit your own, read this. -T

Walt: I’m only using songs from my ITunes (1299 songs, not bragging or anything). So here we go.

1.  The Allman Brothers Band- Blue Sky. Going back to my roots with this one something relaxing and blissful. Good times with that special someone.

2. The Beatles- Helter Skelter. When I imagine this part, scenes from 28 week later come to mind of mindless monsters running through the streets tearing people apart. Snipers killing zombies by the bushel and not making a dent in the crisis. Its chaos, madness, terrifying.

3. Pink Floyd- Run Like Hell. I think the title speaks for itself.

4. Deftones- 7 Words. This song amps me up like no other, just what someone needs when there about to bash in zombie brains.

5. Van Halen- Panama. Because at this point you need the fun beating mindless creatures to death song.

6. Trivium- Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr. Just a good song when you’re putting boot to @$$.

7. Ugly Casanova- Maybe We’re Lost. So at this point all the killing has proven to be useless, we just can’t win. We lost loved ones, and have scene horrible things. Where do we go from here?

8. Journey- Separate Ways. Alright time to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and prepare for the final battle. Do we win, lose, get torn into a million pieces? Who cares this song in AWESOME!

9. The Offspring- Gone Away. Just a good song that I think sums up the whole story.

So that’s my list. Yes some of these are cheesy, but what can I say cheesy movies are one of my guilty pleasures.
