The new topics continue today! Songs in film is going to be a fun one for sure. I’m a sucker for great song placement in a film. When that right song hits as the scene plays out, (you know the feeling) it all makes it that much more poignant.

The first one I present to you is Lynyrd Skynyrd’s classic “Free Bird,” which you hear playing at the end in Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects.  This is the ABSOLUTE BEST place this song has ever been heard in a film. It’s such an iconic song that the way the climax of the song hits when the bullets are flying… OH MY! Anytime I hear “Free Bird” played anywhere, I can’t help but always think of this scene.

Let me know what you think!!

  1. One horror film that I can say I actually felt bad for the psycho sadistic killers in. The scene at the end was awesome…its the fact that you see clips of them as a happy loving family and with freebird playing it made me feel for them even more. I then remembered that they were sick fucks who murdered people and got off on it and then I had more mixed emotions like I was happy to see them take off towards the road block in a blaze of glory, then I was a happy to see them get blown away. Justice for all the people killed by these sadistic fucks.

    1. I thought the same the first time I watched the film. You start to find a balance between them as human but they are in fact sick fucking people that got what they deserved. That being said, the use of the song and the who ending sequence is utterly beautiful.

      Thanks for checking out the site!

      Cheers,

      Brian
