The 1990’s were truly a great time for music. One of the best things about that time were the soundtracks that came out. Even if the movie wasn’t that good, most of the time the soundtrack was great. As is the case with the terrible sequel to the masterpiece that is The Crow. The soundtrack far surpassed the film. The inclusion of songs from Hole, White Zombie, Bush, Deftones and Filter all made this worth while. The Hole song was a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman.” This could actually be the best song that Hole ever put out. White Zombie’s version of KC and the Sunshine Band’s “I’m Your Boogie Man,” was a fun song that had a great video to accompany it. Bush’s contribution was a really solemn cover of Joy Division’s “In A Lonely Place.” They really did a great arrangement with that song. Deftones song “Teething” is classic Deftones. They also appear in the film. Filter’s song “Jurrasitol” is another classic Filter song, that has become a fan favorite and a must play at live shows. Other bands and artists that appear on the soundtrack are Korn, PJ Harvey, Iggy Pop, Toadies and a few others. Sadly the movie doesn’t hold a candle to what the first movie was, but the soundtrack makes up for that. Even though the soundtrack to the first film is way better than this one!
