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

06.21.2010

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.

Here's the track listing:

01 SEX BOB-OMB (Beck): "We Are SEX BOB-OMB"

02 Plumtree: "Scott Pilgrim"

03 Frank Black: "I Heard Ramona Sing"

04 Beachwood Sparks: "By Your Side"

05 Black Lips: "O Katrina!"

06 Crash and the Boys (Broken Social Scene): "I'm So Sad, So Very, Very Sad"

07 Crash and the Boys (Broken Social Scene): "We Hate You Please Die"

08 SEX BOB-OMB (Beck): "Garbage Truck"

09 T. Rex: "Teenage Dream"

10 The Bluetones: "Sleazy Bed Track"

11 Blood Red Shoes: "It's Getting Boring by the Sea"

Extra Tidbit: Good call on The Rolling Stones track. Too bad they didn't fit a Smashing Pumpkins track in there.

Almost anticipating the music more than the movie at this point. Broken Social Scene is incredible and it'll be nice to hear new stuff from Beck.

Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl

Never get tired from hearing that wonderful song. I wonder how they will use it context-wise in the movie. Last time I heard it was in Snow Cakes and it was in a kinda hokey moment,,,

Niki...

I'm pretty sure i've read and heard that the movie's supposed to be a adaptation of all the volumes of Scott Pilgrim fitted into one film.
it's what I recall.

You're right. My mind tends to meander. I just figure that since the third book is titled, "Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness" that there might be at least one Pumpkins track. Off to change what I said. haha :)

Hmm, this doesn't bode well if the only bands I recognize are Rolling Stones and Beck.
