Suicide-Squad-soundtrackBesides the Captain America: Civil War film, my other favorite superhero movie of the year was David Ayers take on the Suicide Squad. It’s the comic book film that is unlike any other because it features the Super-villains of DC Comics as the lead characters in a Dirty Dozen style film. To read the review of the film that I did for my 365 Movies In 365 Days Challenge blog, you can do so by going here. So one of the coolest features of the film is the soundtrack that comes attached to it that features artists like the Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, Rick Ross, Panic! At The Disco, Grace, Skylar Grey, War, and many more. The soundtrack was released on August 5 is a nice mix of what is relevant in Pop music, but there are versions of tracks on the soundtrack that were not featured in the actual film.

1. Purple Lamborghini by Rick Ross & Skrillex- a Dubstep/Hip Hop track that where you don’t actually mind the Transformers sound from Skrillex because it’s subtle. 4/5

IMG_31792. Sucker For Pain by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons(w/ Logic, Ty Dolla $ign & X Ambassadors)- This is by far my favorite song on the whole soundtrack. It was hard for me to imagine so many different talent on the same song that I even had to watch the music video to see where Logic was on the song. One of Lil Wayne’s best raps. 5/5

3. Heathens by Twenty One Pilots- My second favorite song on the whole soundtrack from the Alternative Hip Hop group with it’s very melancholic sound. 5/5

4. Standing In The Rain by Action Bronson, Mark Ronson & Dan Auerbach- My third favorite song on the album that I would best describe as like a western meets hip hop sound with blues/rock Dan Auerbach on the track. 5/5

5.  Gangsta by Kehlani- A cool R&B track from Kehlani where she talks about not wanting any regular dude, but a Gangsta. 4/5

6. Know Better by Kevin Gates- One of my least favorite tracks on the album from Hip Hop artist Kevin Gates 3/5

7. You Don’t Own Me by Grace Featuring G-Eazy- A very cool track on the album that has Grace singing the choruses to the classic Lesley Gore track while G-Eazy raps over it. 5/5

8. Without Me by Eminem- The classic Eminem track from The Eminem Show album about how the world needs Slim Shady which is true. 5/5

9. Wreak Havoc by Skylar Grey- Kind of a cool track with guns as parts of the beat while Skylar Grey lays it down. 4/5

10. Medieval Warfare by Grimes- The track starts off pretty cool with a cool guitar track before it goes techno pop on you. 4/5

11. Bohemian Rhapsody by Panic! At The Disco- Just to clarify to people, the version you hear in the film is Queen, but the cover is what was included on the soundtrack. Nobody has the range or ability that Freddie Mercury had, but I give them an A for effort. 4/5

12. Slippin’ Into Darkness by War- The classic soul/funk War track from their All Day Music album which was a different touch for the film. 4/5

13. Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival- The classic CCR anti-war track that is ironically put into a film about the government hiring criminals to fight. 5/5

14. I Started A Joke by ConfidentialMX- This another of my least favorite tracks on the album because the song’s pace is slowed down to a snails pace where it just overly dramatic.  2.5/5

My Final Thoughts– For the most part as I said this soundtrack is a perfect mix of pop, Hip Hop, Rock, and classic rock as well. They could have made a whole separate soundtrack on all the other songs that were in the film, but this is good enough. You should definitely check out the film and the soundtrack. I am going to give the album 4.2 stars out five for a final grade.
