I'd be interested in hearing your opinion on the soundtrack choice for Iron Man 2: apparently it's AC/DC all the way.

I find it baffling and stupid - not only do I personally dislike the band strongly - (I instantly change the channel it they're on the radio) and all my excitement to see the movie dropped when I heard about this.

But on a more general note, I would assume that the band isn't very high on the list of the film's demographic. But tell me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, I'd say that's wrong. AC/DC has a lot of fans in the core 'demographic' or whatever. I think the band has been a pretty integral part of what seems like a very successful promotional effort. It's worked very well to my eyes. At this point, these movies have a strong link to classic hard rock stuff.

Sorry you don't like them, but overall, I think it's a big crowd-pleaser.

There is one, but they decided to go with a more traditional orchestral soundtrack from what I understand, as opposed to the guitar heavy mixed orchestral from the first.

The guitar heavy orchestral went a long way to standing out among all the other superhero themes.

BryceWong

Because there are a lot of AC/DC fans and they wanted to sell records and cross promote. AC/DC doesn't have a greatest hits album, this soundtrack is about the closes thing that there has ever been to one so a lot of AC/DC fans are buying this album and getting hooked into IronMan 2 at the same time because they probably think that AC/DC is all up in that bitch.

To quote Johan Hegg, lead singer of Amon Amarth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eABVwEgzIss), "We play death metal. We write about vikings so, therefore, some refer us to viking metal, but I have no idea what that is. I can't imagine the viking’s veer into metal at all except on the swords and stuff. And musically, I guess they only played these strange lip instruments and some bongos or whatever."

I think it's fitting to have them on Iron Man 2's soundtrack. AC/DC's Back in Black was the first song heard in the first movie and they just fucking rock. But really Welt, who would you rather have on there? I really think that something like Panic at the Disco or Modest Mouse would not fit the feel of Iron Man.

And there's not really too many more impactful bands out there. AC/DC is on the level of the Who or Black Sabbath. They are legends.

Of all those bands you mention, the only one that really has a large mainstream appeal is Black Sabbath.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Tool, Killing Joke, and QOTSA, but they don't have the instant cultural connectivity as an AC/DC song.

Sorry if my use of the word impact got misunderstood. I didn't mean to disregard AC/DC's position in the rock'n'roll history - I meant rock music with more impact, a stronger effect. (Sorry, this language isn't my native tongue.)

As opinions of taste go, I like every one of the bands you listed. As business decisions go, for a film studio marketing a blockbuster with maximum commercial appeal that is consistent with the tone of the film, the choice is AC/DC.

The commercial success and multi-generational longevity of AC/DC makes them a fit for the "Iron Man 2" house band.

Plus... as has been mentioned... they fucking rock hard.

I thought it was a great idea. The soundtrack is like an introduction to AC/DC for the casual fan who isn't familiar with thier work and a great piece for existing fans who already own chunks of thier catalogue and are completists. From what we've heard they don't have songs all throughout the movie. So you can skip the soundtrack and buy the score and he happy.

On topic, I thought they chose AC/DC because of the song, "Back in Black," with Rodney becoming Warmachine. All of the other "metal" and "electricity" metaphors fell into place after that.

Of course, Black Sabbath really set the plate with "I am Iron Man" in the first flick and the 70s/80s Rock-n-Roll really seemed to mesh well with the movie.

I won't try to deny that the song in question is blessed with some genius. But I'm sad to say it may have been one of the few times in the 35-year history of the band.

I don't like Rolling Stones either, but at least they have made a bunch of hit songs throughout their long career, and the radios have gotten new tunes to play from them. With AC/DC it's just 2 or 3 songs.

I guess, through trials and adversity it might help him, but he has to be in the right mindset to take the lesson that way, otherwise it will all be for naught. Make sure you tell him you love him when doing it.

AC/DC isn't a bad choice. Really. You could have (no lie at all) ended up with 80's-era Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot...

Out of the ones you listed, there's irony value in using Motorhead's Iron Fist, but using AC/DC is instant, recognizable branding. Much less obnoxious and annoying than the use of the Beastie Boys in Star Trek (who I like, but it was very out of place and head scratching)

Maynard would say you're being "Toolier than thou"

Really, he would.

Just for your information, I don't condone it, and won't be raping Todd. Unless he asks for it. Then it's consensual and shit.

I'm sorry, but the soundtrack to Thor is being done by MC Hammer, who is changing his name to MC Mjolnir for the project.

Hey, it's been very interesting to hear your opinions - and to find myself in the minority here with my taste or opinion.

I see AC/DC as music for the 35/40 year olds (that are mainly interested in cars and beer), but perhaps the younger generation has found/or will find the band with the movie and hears it with fresh ears, so to say.

AC/DC still has quite a lot of appeal for the <35 crowd, from what I know. In addition, I think that "mainly interested in cars and beer" is a fair stereotype for guys in their teens and up, so maybe that's just a cultural difference in American youth. :lol:

As for your initial question, Why AC/DC? Because it's fucking AC/DC, that's why. :rock:

They're heavy, blues based 3-chord rock, and were heavy, blues-based 3-chord rock at a time where an hour of Rick Wakeman playing a Hammond organ was considered a good time and 30 minute drum solos were in vogue. They have this sneering, swaggering attitude. They're a very sex, beer, and fighting based band. Their singers are 2 of the most distinctive voices in rock history. They write absolutely massive, killer hooks. Angus Young is one of the best blues-rock soloists of all time. Malcom Young is a killer rhythm player. They've always been very economical with their drumming (you don't need to play a crash or a fill on every downbeat to be good). They really know how to groove,. And lastly, Angus is such a hyperactive, AD/HD addled monkey on stage that you can't help but be transfixed by him.

As for bands I like, well, I like a pretty wide variety of stuff. Sawyer Brown, Lonestar, Black Flag, DRI, Corrosion of Conformity, Slayer, Metallica, King Crimson, Dragonforce, Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, the Sex Pistols, Blackhawk, The Roots, Deftones, My Bloody Valentine, Jesu, SunnO))), Down, Pantera, Matchbox 20, Minus the Bear, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mayhem, Wolves in the Throne Room, Celtic Frost, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Anal Cunt, Ghengis Tron, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Label Society, NIN, Throbbing Gristle, Skinny Puppy, Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, Hatebreed, Pink Floyd, RATM, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, the list could go on and on.

I applaud you for actually doing that much work when I was just kidding.:)

I do in fact hate AC/DC but I don't actually care if anyone likes them.

But in the interest of sharing, the only bands I sorta like that you like are Floyd, Skynryd, the Stones, NIN, and the Eagles.

And Matchbox 20 being right after Pantera is fantastic.
