All 20 Songs from the Iron Man 2 Soundtrack – More than Just AC/DC

There are 20 songs in Iron Man 2, but only two of the songs from the movie are on the soundtrack album. However, you can find the downloads for all the songs here. While the soundtrack album that they released for the movie has 15 songs from AC/DC on it, only two of these songs – Shoot to Thrill and Highway to Hell – are actually in the movie. The soundtrack album completely skips the 18 other songs that are in the movie.

Not that I have anything again AC/DC, but staying true to the music from the movie would have made for a much better soundtrack album. After all, the other songs are none too shabby. Since when did Beastie Boys, Queen, 2Pac, Daft Punk, The Clash or Rob Base deserve second billing?

Skipping these songs would be akin to killing off Sam Rockwell in the first 15 minutes of the movie because you wanted to add a couple extra scenes for Mickey Rourke – you could do it, but you’d make the movie completely one-dimensional and you miss most of the fun. Thankfully, Favreau did not choose that direction for the movie, but the guys who put the soundtrack album together did, choosing one note of badassitude instead of letting you enjoy the full flavor of the movie.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we can right their wrong.

Here’s the complete list of songs from Iron Man 2, in the order they appeared in the movie and with links to the downloads for them.

Original music for Iron Man 2 – John Debney

So I tore down the soundtrack album to Iron Man 2 a bit, but if you want a tour of the AC/DC pantheon, it actually does a pretty good job of it. Since AC/DC does not release their songs for MP3 downloads, buying the soundtrack album is one of the easiest ways to get access to a good cross-section of AC/DC tunes.

The Iron Man 2 soundtrack spans a range of albums from the band, including three tunes from Back in Black and two each from Let There Be Rock, Highway to Hell and The Razor’s Edge. There’s also a song each from Powerage, Flick of the Switch, High Voltage, Backtracks, Black Ice and For Those About to Rock. Here are the tracks from the soundtrack album.

  • Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC
  • Rock ‘N’ Roll Damnation – AC/DC
  • Guns for Hire – AC/DC
  • Cold Hearted Man – AC/DC
  • Back in Black – AC/DC
  • Thunderstruck – AC/DC
  • If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It) – AC/DC
  • Evil Walks – AC/DC
  • T.N.T. – AC/DC
  • Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be – AC/DC
  • Have a Drink on Me – AC/DC
  • The Razor’s Edge – AC/DC
  • Let There Be Rock – AC/DC
  • War Machine – AC/DC
  • Highway to Hell – AC/DC

    • Hey – I know what song it is you’re looking for. It’s called Dirty Robot and it’s performed by Arling and Cameron. If you go on and search for “Dirty Robot”, you can hear a sound clip. Also, IMDb has a pretty good database of soundtracks, so you can always search that way for a song you’re looking for. Happy hunting! 🙂

  21. Anyone know what the name of the song is in Monaco when Tony Stark and Pepper arrive at the beginning of that scene? It’s not AC/DC but it’s not the Flute/Harp song referenced above.

    It’s got a great beat — would love to have it.


    • it’s called Monaco and I wrote it for the scene. It’s not available for download. It’s only about 33 seconds long. I also composed a few pieces for Ironman one. Also composed the “Pimpin’ Guns” cue. It plays under Sam Rockwell trying to sell Don Cheadle weapons.

    • Wow didn’t realize everyone is looking for this. I’ll post it on youtube and post a link here. I’m in the middle of scoring a TV show called Detroit 1-8-7 so it might take me a bit. Happy to see people dig it.

  34. does anyone know where you can download this soundtrack and not the AC/DC one? thanks!

    Please send me the answer to my email

  36. What is the song playing during the black widow fight’s scene??

    You can here it in the min 1:41 of the next video “Iron Man 2 – Black Widow Full Fight Scene [DVD HD 1080 P]” on youtube

  37. What is the song playing during the black widow fight’s scene??

    You can here it in the min 1:41 of the next video “Iron Man 2 – Black Widow Full Fight Scene [DVD HD 1080 P]” on youtube. i dont know if i can post the link but i put the name of the video

  38. does anyone know where I can download “Monaco” from The Declanator? thanks

  39. the 3 tunes in the ‘Fight in the Iron Man suits’ section (Another One Bites the Dust – Queen, Robot Rock – Daft Punk & It Takes Two – Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock) are not the original versions. would be nice to know which versions they are

  40. Okay people! Here is a torrent for downloading pretty much all the music in Iron Man 2- the AC/DC soundtrack, the Film Score, and as many of the additional 20 songs as I could find- including a remake of DJ A.M’s “Phat Beats” (the fight song between Iron Man and War Machine at the B-day party.) A re-make is a close as you can get to the real thing because DJ A.M. died before recording a version other than the one used in the film, which will not be made available for purchase. But the one I found is pretty accurate- mixed by a DJ who worked with A.M. There were a few I couldn’t find, too. But for the most part you can download them all in one place
    You’re welcome 😉

  41. I will try post “Pimpin’ Guns” and “Monaco” on Youtube, they will never be available any other way. I’m in the middle of scoring a TV show so my time is a bit limited.

  42. Pimpin’ Guns – Cue from Ironman 2

  43. posted both above

  44. why do you guys take down my links?

  45. bonjours je cherche la musique de iron man 2 quand il est dans son garage et qu’il se met en mode battiment merci

  46. The song when Ivan is building the arc reactor at the beginning is “Ivan’s Transformation” by John Debney. If you’re after the epic part during the actual building it is towards the end.


  47. Hi. Can anybody PLEASE tell me the name of the song that plays about 1.55 into the official trailer? Sounds like ACDC but cant find it anywhere. Thanks

  48. […] All 20 Songs from the Iron Man 2 Soundtrack – More than Just AC/DC « […]

  49. This is the track that is played when he is working on the particle accelerator 😉 Enjoy guys

  50. Does anyone know the song right before Tony gets into his race car and says “whats the point of owning a race car”? It’s also featured as a sample on the Iron Man 2 website, Track 4.

  51. Wow! The “Shoot to Thrill” video (my grandparents are from Northern Ireland) makes me want to go back in time and stand across a large green field along side my great great great great great grandfather and a few thousand of my Irish brothers, lined up against the King and a few thousand English fellows, all of us with swords and battle axes, and charge like crazy at each other while screaming our heads off. Ha ha : )

    All the best,


  52. Needed to compose you this very little observation to finally give many thanks the moment again for all the pretty methods you have shared at this time. This has been strangely generous of you to allow easily what a few individuals could have marketed as an e-book to end up making some cash for themselves, mostly since you might have done it in the event you desired. These solutions likewise worked to provide a fantastic way to understand that someone else have the same dreams the same as mine to see great deal more regarding this issue. I know there are several more pleasurable occasions ahead for those who view your website.

  53. whats the song when rhodes stole the armor and arrive in the us base please?

  54. Could you tell me what’s the military song playing when Rhodey steals the suit and lands on the US Base?
