The soundtrack for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is revealed with songs written by Beck

If you know anything about SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, you know that his band with Kim Pine and Stephen Stills, SEX BOB-OMB plays a big part of the series.

When Scott's younger "girlfriend", Knives Chau hears the band for the first time, she instantly falls in love. Perhaps another reason to fall in love? The fact that Edgar Wright recruited Beck to write all the songs for the band.

The soundtrack will feature 4 songs from SEX BOB-OMB with Beck providing the instrumentation. Michael Cera, Alison Pill, and Mark Webber will provide vocals on the tracks. Also look for music from T. Rex, The Rolling Stones, and Frank Black. Broken Social Scene and Metric will also be providing tracks, as well as their sound for the fictional bands in the film. Broken Social Scene will be heard when Crash and the Boys play. Crash and the Boys is taken from the NES game, Crash n' the Boys. Metric will rock for The Clash at Demonhead, name also taken from an NES game.

Nigel Godrich is responsible for the film's score. Godrich is sometimes referred to as the "sixth member" of the band, Radiohead and has worked with numerous other artists like U2, R.E.M., Pavement, Paul McCartney, and Beck as well.
