Lollipop Chainsaw has somewhat famous names attached to it both in the writing and sound departments. While the game’s script was penned by Hollywood director, James Gunn, the game’s music is being handled by two people–Jimmy Urine (of Mindless Self Indulgence) and Grasshopper Manufacture CCO, Akira Yamaoka.
You may know Yamaoka from his previous work on Silent Hill, and in a behind-the-scenes video embedded above, he and Jimmy Urine discuss how they approached composing the music in the game. Additionally, the game’s publishers also acquired a whole bunch of licensed music to include:
Lollipop – The Chordettes
Pac Man Fever – Buckner & Garcia
Rock ‘N’ Roll (Will Take You To The Mountain) – Skrillex
The Way of the Fist – Five Finger Death Punch
Stop Reading, Start Doing Pushups – Destroy Rebuild Until God Comes
Riot Rhythm – Sleigh Bells
Turtle Crazy – Toy Dolls
1,000 Cigarettes – MSTRKRFT
Heroes Of Our Time – Dragonforce
Nemesis – Arch Enemy
Needled 24/7 – Children of Bodom
Mickey – Toni Basil
You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) – Dead or Alive
Empire State Human – The Human League
Cherry Bomb – Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
Speed – Atari Teenage Riot
Hmm… I suppose “You Spin Me Round” would make for a pretty interesting battle theme. Lollipop Chainsaw will be released on June 12th in North America and June 15th in Europe.
