The opening credits sequence of the The Hangover has one of the best songs to accompany it. Having Danzig’s “Thirteen” in this place is haunting and it absolutely sets a tone for what is to happen in the film. Interestingly, Danzig originally wrote the song for Johnny Cash. Cash’s  acoustic version appears in an edited form on his 1994 American Recordings debut, while a full length version is on the Johnny Cash box set. No matter what, “Thirteen” is a great song and it’s use was perfect.
