Lollipop Chainsaw soundtrack features Skrillex

What is the exact soundtrack to a zombie massacre? In scoring the upcoming game Lollipop Chainsaw, artist Jimmy Urine (of Mindless Self Indulgence) and Grasshopper Manufacture Sound Director Akira Yamaoka had to address these types of questions. When Juliet rips through a decaying zombie torso with her trusty chainsaw, would Sleigh Bells fit better than Sinatra? Or should it be an original composition? In this behind the scenes video, Jimmy and Akira discuss the various influences that go into scoring a game with such a strong visual and creative style and the aesthetic basis from which the soundtrack was compiled.
 
On top of the original music composed by Jimmy and Akira, there is a plethora of music licensed for the game as well. The full tracklist:
 
 
Lollipop – The Chordettes
 
Pac Man Fever – Buckner & Garcia
 
Rock ‘N’ Roll (Will Take You To The Mountain) – Skrillex
 
The Way of the Fist – Five Finger Death Punch
 
Stop Reading, Start Doing Pushups - Destroy Rebuild Until God Comes
 
Riot Rhythm – Sleigh Bells
 
Turtle Crazy – Toy Dolls
 
1,000 Cigarettes – MSTRKRFT
 
Heroes Of Our Time – Dragonforce
 
Nemesis – Arch Enemy
 
Needled 24/7 – Children of Bodom
 
Mickey – Toni Basil
 
You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) – Dead or Alive
 
Empire State Human – The Human League
 
Cherry Bomb - Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
 
Speed - Atari Teenage Riot
 
Available on June 12th, Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie-hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak. With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw-wielding cheerleader. The game will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
