Just_Another_VictimYou have to think back to the time of the release of today’s Soundtrack Saturday film and wonder how influential was this soundtrack in the future events to come. The Judgment Night soundtrack was released on September 14, 1993 and it featured some of the biggest names in rock and metal doing tracks with some of the biggest rap artists of the time as well. You had Slayer doing a cover track with Ice-T, Faith No More doing a song with Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E., and even Living Colour doing a track with Run DMC. In 1993, bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against The Machine hadn’t even released their first albums or had any popularity at the time, but critics everywhere ranted and raved about this soundtrack that maybe it did influence labels to start signing bands like this to create the eventual Nu-Metal genre. Nevertheless, is is a question worth thinking about if you want to get to the nitty gritty of how things got started. The track that I am using from the Judgement Night soundtrack is the track that features the band Helmet doing the song Just Another Victim with House Of Pain which featured future Limp Bizkit turntablist DJ Lethal. The track had the right kind of grooves that would be the template for the Nu-Metal genre as Page Hamilton sings most of the verses with Everlast and co. on the choruses. That is until later on in the song when Everlast takes over the mic and spits the rhymes like only Everlast can. Kerrang! Magazine placed the track at number 4 on their 666 Songs You Must Own (Crossover) list. Check out the song below and check out the soundtrack while you’re at it.
