Cool Videos: Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy music video

Dec. 7, 2010by: Mike Sampson

Two of the year's most anticipated albums - Daft Punk's TRON: LEGACY soundtrack and Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" - wound up hitting the internet on the same week and the reaction was largely split right down the middle. Everyone loved Kanye and everyone was disappointed by Daft Punk. Strangely (or not so strangely), I felt the exact opposite.

If you were expecting a Daft Punk album, I can see where you were disappointed by the soundtrack. It's less an album of new music and more an album of music from the film. That isn't to say it's not fantastic, which it is, but it probably just threw people for a loop. There are, of course, a few typical Daft Punk songs on the disc including "Derezzed," a song you likely heard in the myriad commercials and trailers.

The Daft Punk boys created a music video for the song, which is very much inspired by TRON. And not TRON: LEGACY, I mean (though there is obviously some of that) but very much the original TRON, which is refreshing to see. There's also a cameo at the end, you might want to stick around for. Check out the vid below.

WTF... Who was dissapointed in Daft Punks OST? It's awesome. Even as a Daft Punk album it's good. WTF people, are you all a bunch of overprivilaged tards or something?

As A Soundtrack...

Tron Legacy is thrilling. But as seen only as a Daft Punk album? That was never even the intention, was it? Anyways, hip video. Seeing the old effects updated (but still VERY different from the look of Legacy) was a total blast!

"Tron Legacy"'s OST is fantastic! In my opinion, the best score of the year! Daft Punk really outdid themselves!

Daft Punk is awesome and that music was great. I remember I heard DP first back in the days of Toonami on Cartoon Network. They played parts of Interstella 5555 all the time and I thought it was so cool. That's also where I first heard Gorillaz. Man, I'm so excited for this movie.

BTW, the cameo is kind of ruined because before you click play, it shows you a picture of the person.

Oh, well I wouldn't know seeing as I can't check against the one here. I suppose the one on the Tron Legacy youtube channel might be the right one.

Woohoo, a 3 minute ad for MTV because they're fucks and don't seem to understand that internets don't work on a by-country basis.

AWESOME!


I particularly liked the part where it said, "Sorry, we're unable to offer this video to users in your region."

Fuck MTV

Fuck the xenophobics of the MTV. It's impossible to see the video outside the USA. What's the problem with this guys? Are they stupids or something like that?

Very cool video!.... but as for the song, I was expecting something better from Daft Punk. The song doesn't sound like it belongs in a movie. It sounds more like it was made for a commercial.... for a pepsi or coca-cola commercial. I just don't see how it would fit in the new Tron movie. What scene would go good with this song? It isn't suspenseful enough to compliment a light cycle battle.

Sweet track for the movie. Don't know if I'd ever turn it up in my car, though.
