‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Soundtrack to Be Released on Cassette Tape in November

Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome mix
Marvel/Hollywood Records

As successful as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was at the box-office (and, as the highest-grossing film of the year, it certainly was that), the film's iconic soundtrack was equally as successful. "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and is currently the 10th largest selling album of 2014. You've been able to buy the digital album, the CD, vinyl and even a "Deluxe Edition," but so far, no actual cassette like the mix tape in the film. But, that's all about to change.

Mondo’s Vinyl Releases Continue With ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix’

GOTG00

It looks like the good folks over at Mondo have been on quite a tear lately when it comes to cornering the market on comic book themed vinyl records. Just a few months ago at San Diego's Comic-Con International, they put out a limited edition Batman: The Animated Series soundtrack, and now, they've announced that they're following that up with a collectible edition of the soundtrack to Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Piano Guys’ Batman Music Medley Will Make Your Jaw Drop [Video]

batman-evolution-song

Batman's movie and TV adaptations have had varying degrees of success over the years, but one aspect of the DC Comics franchise that has been almost universally good for the past five decades or so has been the music.

As if to prove it, the Piano Guys -- a duo consisting of a pianist and a cellist (shouldn't they be the Piano and Electric Cello Guys?) -- have taken three iconic Batman themes, arranged them for their own instruments, and mashed them up in a really creative and compelling way. Not only that, they put it all in an absolutely beautifully shot video.

An Awesome Girl Group Recorded The Mary Janes’ Song From ‘Edge of Spider-Verse’ #2

Edge_of_Spider-Verse_2_Preview_1

In case you haven't read it yet (and missed our review), Edge of Spider-Verse #2 by Jason LaTour and Robbi Rodriguez is a fantastic comic. It introduces an alternate-universe Gwen Stacy who become Spider-Woman and is on the run from the cops after being blamed for the death of poor old Peter Parker. It also involves an awesome element: A band called The Mary Janes, in which Gwen is the drummer, Mary Jane Watson is the lead singer/bassist, Glory Grant is the keyboardist, and Betty Brant plays lead guitar.

That'd be cool enough on its own, but a band called Married With Sea Monsters took it a step further. They've actually recorded a version of the song from the comic, "Face It Tiger," and posted it to YouTube.

There Is An Optic Blast That Will Never Go Out: Adam Villacin Mashes Up The Smiths And The X-Men

Smiths00

I'll admit that I've never really been into the Smiths, but I have no trouble believing that the X-Men, Marvel's mopiest mutants, would beall about that stuff. I mean, their entire deal is that they combine eye-lasers with angst and occasionally use that mixture to power trips to space, right? It's a perfect match.

Or at least, that's the conclusion that artist Adam Villacin came to with "These Charming X-Men," a series of portraits on display at Secret Headquarters in Los Angeles that mashed up the Children of the Atom with Morrissey's most famous lyrics, resulting in absolute hilarity. Seriously, Cyclops trying to cover his eyes set to "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" might be the best thing I've seen all day, and that's just where it starts.

Vanilla Ice Thinks The New Ninja Turtles Rap Lacks ‘The Magic’

Vanilla Ice (center) with the Ninja Turtles

Despite all efforts to stop it, there's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie produced by Michael Bay set to be released this week, and to its credit, it is attempting to recreate the single most successful and memorable moment from the Turtles' film history. We speak, of course, of Vanilla Ice's classic "Ninja Rap," an unquestioned high point from TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze.

This time around, the tune they're going with is "Shell Shocked" by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla Sign, a song that has found a critic in Vanilla Ice himself. When asked by GQ what he thought of the new song, Ice was dismissive of the song, claiming that it lacked "the Magic" to musically represent what it means to be a "True Ninja."

star-lord-cover

Nerdcore rapper Adam WarRock, a.k.a. Eugene Ahn, is back doing his thing with a rap tribute to the legendary outlaw Star-Lord -- the soon-to-be-famous leading man of Guardians Of The Galaxy, as played by the internet's boyfriend Chris Pratt. WarRock told ComicsAlliance, "It's weird to me that by the end of the week, everyone will know who Star-Lord is, and actually love him. I mean, it's Star-Lord. But anyway, I'm excited, and hopefully this song gets you even more pumped for the film."

The track is free to download at AdamWarRock.com, and you can find the man himself online on Twitter and Facebook. This isn't WarRock's first Guardians of the Galaxy track; a few months back he recorded "Murdered You," a loving tribute to Rocket Raccoon, which you can also check out right here.
