Jason Statham’s Chevzilla Is Back: Watch The Epic Battle Video! | Score By Mike Patton

To celebrate the release of Godzilla this weekend, Lakeshore Records has set loose this clip from Crank 2: High Voltage (rent it on iTunes) featuring Jason Statham as the biggest, baddest monster that ever lived: Chev Chelios.  The Crank 2: High Voltage soundtrack is scored by Mike Patton, the lead singer of Faith No More and the founder and lead singer of experimental bands Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, and Fantômas. Patton’s unique score captures the non-stop insanity of the film perfectly with its bursts of brutal sonic mayhem and odd glitchy sounds of broken toy instruments.

‘Fame’ Anniversary, Plus Watch Our Music Videos

Fame, the original 1980 film musical starring Debbie Allen, Gene Anthony Ray and Lee Curreri, portrayed the individual trials and tribulations of highly-gifted students who attended a performing arts high school in New York City.  The film also spawned a long-running TV show (1982) and a stage musical.  Lakeshore Records released a series of Fame soundtracks to the 2009 film remake (watch it on iTunes), which features a score album by Academy Award-nominated Composer Mark Isham (A River Runs Through It, Warrior), songs performed by Naturi Naughton (Lifetime’s The Client List) and a whole new generation of exceptionally talented performers.

Debbie Allen is the only cast member to appear in the original, TV and 2009 productions of Fame.  The internal struggle to “make it” and fight through self doubt is as relevant now as it was back in 1980, and you’ll hear it in the music on Lakeshore RecordsFame albums.
