Music from the Movie Role Models Reigns Supreme in KISS-anthia

Role Models is a damn funny movie. And with a bunch of songs from KISS, plus Cool Kids and a cover of Rock You Like a Hurricane, how could you go wrong? Not to mention Paul Rudd is one of the most consistently underrated funny guys in movies. Throw in Bobb’e J. Thompson (of That’s So Raven fame) who actually made me do a couple spit takes with his Miss Daisy and Ben Affleck comments and you’ve got a hilarious movie.

There are 18 songs in the movie plus a couple that are played twice. It doesn’t look like they are going to release a soundtrack album for Role Models, but the videos and downloads for the songs are at Reelsoundtrack.

Here’s the complete list of songs in the order they appeared in the movie, with notes about the scene they appeared in. For those that are available, DRM-free Amazon MP3 downloads are in bold.

  1. There is a version of La Grange at the start of the movie…Who Does it?

  2. La Grange is not credited officially in the movie. I am guessing that Craig Wedren, who wrote the score for the movie, must have just taken the lick from ZZ Top and integrated it directly into the score.
