Music from the Movie Step Brothers


I’ve updated the original post from July with the complete list of songs from Step Brothers in the order they appeared in the movie. Here’s the original commentary and the new, complete list of songs.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly strike again with another hilarious movie – one of those that I will have to see a couple times to remember all of the ridiculous lines that will most certainly become part of the popular lexicon.

Step Brothers is a riot and the soundtrack actually is really good too. Where else are you going to find LCD Soundsystem and Q-Tip, Billy Joel and Dilated Peoples, Set the Control and The Kinks, or Hall & Oates and Vanilla Ice (that one sounds like a Ben & Jerry’s flavor)? Not to mention a nice throwback to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Montell Jordan and Brenda Lee.

There are 28 songs featured in the movie. They did not release a soundtrack album for Step Brothers but you can find the videos and downloads for all 28 songs at ReelSoundtrack. Seems like they should have because I have received dozens of questions about the songs in particular scenes of the movie.

Here is a quick rundown of the most popular questions. Update: Here’s the complete list of songs from Step Brothers in the order they appeared in the movie, with references to individual scenes where I could track them down:

The videos and downloads for these and the other 22 songs from the movie are all at ReelSoundtrack.
