The “Jennifer’s Body” Soundtrack Might Be The Most Idolator-Ish Release Of The Year

Jul 21st, 2009 // 5 Comments

Much as I hate to admit it, the people putting together the soundtrack for Diablo Cody’s emo-leaning, Megan Fox-enhanced entrant into the vampire genre Jennifer’s Body might very well have compiled an album that will prove to be the 2009 equivalent of, say, the Batman Forever soundtrack (or at least the album accompanying Batman & Robin) as far as summing up a very particular pop aesthetic at a very particular point in time. Well, at least I’m supporting Amanda Seyfried’s acting efforts, I guess. Track list after the jump.

1. Kiss With a Fist – Florence and The Machine
2. New Perspective – Panic! At The Disco
3. Teenagers – Hayley Williams
4. New In Town – Little Boots
5. Finishing School – Dashboard Confessional
6. Through The Trees – Low Shoulder
7. Time – Cute Is What We Aim For
8. I Can See Clearly – Screeching Weasel
9. Chew Me Up – Cobra Starship
10. toxic valentine – All Time Low
11. I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend – Black Kids
12. Death – White Lies
13. Celestial Crown – The Sword
14. Little Lover’s So Polite – Silversun Pickups
15. Ready For The Floor – Lissy Trullie
Bonus track: Violet – Hole

The Mercury Prize fave alongside the once-again-banging Panic! At The Disco? Vintage Hole? Screeching Weasel? That freaking Black Kids song? I mean, come on, this is catnip that’s been pretty much designed to make me dislike Diablo Cody a little bit less. I can only hope that Hayley Williams’ contribution to the proceedings is a My Chemical Romance cover. A trailer for the flick is below.

  1. Not a single artist (and that’s if you can call Hayley Williams an “artist”, which is debatable) on this disc that I could possibly care less about.

  2. There is still something horribly wrong with how the trailer lists all the acts on the soundtrack before anyone who actually worked on the movie.

    But hey, a Diablo Cody flick that’s trying too hard? What are the odds?

    Also, I hope Hayley Williams’s contribution isn’t an MCR cover–that song makes no sense sung by someone who’s barely out of her teens herself. (Also, I can’t imagine her voice working with it, at all.)

  3. @kicking222: Pretty much agreed. I think that Dashboard Confessional was created in a special area of hell just to torment me. He’s just the worst thing ever.

  4. @kicking222: I am going to have to third this sentiment. I may be a Jonas Brothers fanatic, but this here soundtrack makes me feel old and crotchety. But I must confess that the only Cobra Starship song I know is that one with the Gossip Girl in it and I think that song is the real worst kind of adolescent-pandering commercial garbage, personally. OK, stay on the lawn, I’ll just get off the porch.
