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.

In Crank 2: High Voltage, Chev Chelios clashes with a powerful Chinese mobster who has stolen his indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker. Chelios must give his artificial heart regular jolts of electricity in order to stay alive.

13 Songs For Alternative Superheroes

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend.  The film from Marvel Comics stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, who, as his name implies, is one of the world’s Most Finest Superheroes fighting evil and corruption.  Not all heroes are super.  Bad supers aren’t trying to save the world. They’re just trying to make their little corner of it better.  Sometimes, as we learn in the film Superbad, the greatest hero you’ll ever know is already standing right beside you; your best friend. Boop.

Lakeshore Records: Bad Supers - 13 Songs

In Super, Rainn Wilson stars as Crimson Bolt, a delusional man on mission to save his wife from an evil drug dealer. In My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Uma Thurman plays G-Girl, a heroine-scorned who strays so far from justice that she nearly becomes a super-villain. In Crank, Jason Statham plays the unstoppable Chev Chelios, a true anti-hero who wades through the criminal underworld powered by nothing but epinephrine and a desire to hear his girlfriend pick up the goddamn phone.  Here’s a playlist to celebrate those who stumble, trip, and fall into greatness – heroes who lose their way or have strange ideas about what constitutes a good deed.
