Snakes On A Plane starring Samuel L. Jackson – is it a hit or miss? That is what the critics are saying but what about the soundtrack?
We can tell you that it’s not an average crappy soundtrack featuring Celine Dion and Whitney Houston (who is alleged to have a fan in Osama Bin Laden thesedays!) but it is made up of many Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen acts that you may well of heard of by now.
Cobra Starship, fronted by former Midtown member Gabe Saporta, was asked to write the title song to this inevitably smash hit movie and invited friends William Beckett (from The Academy Is…), Travis McCoy (from Gym Class Heroes) and Maja Ivarsson (from The Sounds) to help him out. The result is completely catchy, aided by a belting chorus from Saporta, divided by bridges and verses from his guest stars, who all add their individual characteristics to the tempo of the tune.
As well as featured remixes from Fall Out Boy, The Academy Is…, Panic! At The Disco, Gym Class Heroes and The Hush Sound, other tracks come from The Bronx, Armor For Sleep, the All-American Rejects, Jack’s Mannequin and Coheed and Cambria among other lesser known artists.
