It’s another Saturday which can only mean one thing and that is I have another Soundtrack Saturday pick for all of you. In the early 90’s Arnold Schwarzenegger was still a huge star and one of my favorite 90’s films with him was Last Action Hero which also starred Austin O’Brien, Charles Dance, Anthony Quinn, and so many more. One of the cool things about the soundtrack is that 80’s metal was still a big thing and it was mixed with some of the 90’s metal acts as well. The soundtrack featured the likes of Def Leppard, Alice In Chains, Tesla, Queensryche, but I decided to choose a track from one of my all time favorite Thrash Metal acts in Megadeth. Dave wrote the song in one day apparently while he was going through a rough stage. The song is called Angry Again and it was written at a time when he was on drugs again and he was mad at everyone from the band to some industry people. He describes the track, “I wrote ‘Angry Again’ right after I got out of a treatment center in Arizona. They had done one of those happy little 1990s interventions where everybody who’s not loaded gets to point the finger at everyone who is. And the day I got out of rehab, they threw me into a studio in Phoenix where I wrote ‘Angry Again’ for the movie The Last Action Hero.” The song was written around the time that Countdown To Extinction was written so it has that awesome sound that the album possessed. The song ended up earning the band a Grammy nod for best metal performance which was their fourth nod at the time. It’s definitely one of my favorite Megadeth songs, so you should check it out below and bang that head.
