The "Suicide Squad" soundtrack debuted at number one and we're currently rocking out
While the world is pretty divided over whether or not Suicide Squad is a legitimately good movie, it’s safe to say that the film had an undeniably kickass soundtrack. Seriously, it was like a cornucopia of the world’s greatest hits, and if you walked away remembering one thing, it was probably the jams. So it’s really no surprise that the official soundtrack just debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
If you remember, it featured old favorites like Eminem’s “Without Me” and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortune Son,” along with tracks from rap, electro, and rock heavyweights like Skrillex, Lil Wayne, Grimes, Panic! at the Disco, and more.
They were the perfect beats to accompany the menacingly dark themes and sometimes hilarious nature of the movie.
According to Billboard, the last movie soundtrack to top the list was Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015, and Suicide Squad now boasts the biggest debut sales week for a soundtrack since Fifty Shades of Grey (which is pretty impressive, especially because that one featured Queen Bey!).
Needless to say, we are currently jamming out.
Huge congratulations to whoever was responsible for such an epic compilation! Now what are you waiting for? Head over to iTunes and order!
