‘Alice in Wonderland’ To Have The Angstiest Soundtrack Since ‘New Moon’

We know Avril’s in; so are Pete and Mark. Now the remainder of the artists have been announced for the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack (named Almost Alice) and turns out, it’s surprisingly a lot more mainstream than the indie-based New Moon soundtrack (but just as likely to be sold in every single Hot Topic in America). Full tracklisting after the jump.

1. “Alice (Underground)” performed by Avril Lavigne 2. “The Poison” performed by The All-American Rejects 3. “The Technicolor Phase” performed by Owl City 4. “Her Name Is Alice” performed by Shinedown 5. “Painting Flowers” performed by All Time Low 6. “Where’s My Angel” performed by Metro Station 7. “Strange” performed by Tokio Hotel and Kerli 8. “Follow Me Down” performed by 3OH!3 featuring Neon Hitch 9. “Very Good Advice” performed by Robert Smith 10. “In Transit” performed by Mark Hoppus with Pete Wentz 11. “Welcome to Mystery” performed by Plain White T’s 12. “Tea Party” performed by Kerli 13. “The Lobster Quadrille” performed by Franz Ferdinand 14. “Running Out of Time” performed by Motion City Soundtrack 15. “Fell Down a Hole” performed by Wolfmother 16. “White Rabbit” performed by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

According to the MySpace Music blog, most of these tracks are “re-imagining songs from the Disney classic.” Futhermore, Almost Alice isn’t so much a soundtrack of songs actually in the movie, but an inspired-by compilation album, which reminds us of 2006’s Snakes on a Plane soundtrack (filled to the brim with Pete Wentz and his Decaydance pals), as well as The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ 2008 cover album Nightmare Revisited (which, again, featured Wentz…. dude’s sure got a lockdown on the inspired-by soundtrack franchise, or what?).

Almost Alice hits stores March 2, and the video for the first single, Avril’s “Alice (Underground),” will be released in early February. We kind of wish DJ Pogo’s Alice remix was featured on the soundtrack, since a little bit of Wonderland-esque trippyness is missing from this mostly rock-lite group of artists.
