Music from Death Race Kicks As Much Ass as Jason Statham
Not to be confused with David Carradine’s 1975 movie Death Race 2000 in which the cross country deathrace was all about running down pedestrians in what qualified as the national sport of the future now eight years passed. Nor to be confused with the numerous Death Race 2000 albums by bands as random as La Muerte and the Dayglo Abortions. This is Death Race – plain and simple – Death Race.
This time it’s Jason Statham and Tyrese taking on the penal system in a death race between convicts: the winner is set free. Joan Allen plays the bad guy – yes that’s right. She is one bad mamma jamma.
While there is not a whole lot of music in the movie, what there is is quite good: 5th Set by Spiderbait, Grown Woman by Mary J. Blige, Click Clack by Slim Thung (produced by Pharrell Williams), and Maybe Tomorrow by The Stereophics.
Here’s Maybe Tomorrow by Stereophonics:
