John Wick 1 and 2 are quite possibly the best action films to come out in the last 10 years. There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of the films. Keanu Reeves was made for this role as he was in Point Break, The Matrix and Bill and Ted. Besides Keanu’s awesomeness in the films, the soundtracks are stellar. There is one song in particular from John Wick Chapter 2 that should be on your radar. Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains wrote a song called “A Job To Do” and it’s badass!
Check it out!
Jerry Cantrell- A Job To Do:
I love me some Bill and Ted. I remember when Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey came out, I thought it was the coolest movie. The soundtrack was great, and Jim Martin’s cameo (from Faith No More), was awesome. William Sadler stole the movie for sure as his role of, Death. The ending song was perfect, Kiss with Steve Vai performing “God Gave Rock n Roll To You. I’m pretty stoked on Bill and Ted 3 actually happening. Keanu back as Ted… count me in!

One of my all time favorite action movies, Point Break , has a really awesome soundtrack. There are two songs on it that have always stuck out to me. They were also written exclusively for the soundtrack. The two songs are “Over The Edge” by L.A. Guns and “Nobody Rides For Free” by Ratt. If you don’t remember where the two songs are in the movie, I’ll tell you. “Over The Edge” was placed when Johnny is at Bohdi’s house for the party and he’s in the room with all the surfboards and pictures. Also the scene where Bohdi asks Utah, “are you up for a little stealth mission.” “Nobody Rides For Free” appears at the end of the film as Utah tosses his badge into the ocean. So now that you are replaying the movie in your head, take a listen to these two songs.
