The soundtrack to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has some really great 80s tunes
Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have provided a list featuring some of the songs that will be included in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
The soundtrack reads like a list of some of the biggest hits from the 80s and includes tracks from Soft Cell, Europe, Blondie, Blue Oyster Cult, Kiss, Flock of Seagulls, and Twisted Sister among others.
Tracks include the played-to-death – and song I personally loathe – Starship’s We Built this City, A-ha classic Take On Me, Loverboy’s absolutely rockin’ Turn Me Loose, Billy Idol favorite White Wedding, and the Motley Crue song that caused me to get a speeding ticket, Kickstart My Heart.
Included in the soundtrack are two songs from the Star-Lord Band, Zero to Hero, and Space Riders with No Names, which make up part of the 30-track soundtrack. You can listen to Zero to Hero in the video above.
Below is a list of just some of the licensed songs included in the game.
Blondie – Call Me
Blue Oyster Cult – Don’t Fear The Reaper
Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy
Hot Chocolate – Every 1’s A Winner
Wang Chung – Everybody Have Fun Tonight
Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World
You’ll get to listen to these tracks as you progress through the game, as well as on the jukebox that’s on the Milano. Some of them will also play a key role during the Huddle, which is a key gameplay mechanic in combat. You will have the opportunity to choose between two on Star-Lord’s cassette player to try and motivate the Guardians and overwhelm your enemies.
All songs on the playlist will be featured in the game itself, with an optional toggle should you wish to mute and replace them with stream-safe alternatives as needed.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases October 26 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The Cloud Version for Nintendo Switch will arrive on the same day.
