The Daily Grind Video

Battleship is one of the most highly anticipated films of the season and although most are excited to see Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker on the big screen, the audience will be extra entertained with an epic rock-heavy soundtrack throughout.

Executive music producer Rick Rubin, known for his days at Def Jam, is still a music force to be reckoned with – over 20 years since he started the legendary music label with Russell Simmons. Rubin has worked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Justin Timberlake, Metallica and was most recently praised by Adele during her thank you speech at this year’s Grammy’s. Not too shabby.

On the 24-track soundtrack, Rubin teamed up with some big names. Starting with Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine, Rubin collaborated with him on the track “Super Battle”, while composer Steve Jablonsky had the chance to feature Morello on the track “Thug Fight.” Adding to the big names on the soundtrack, Rubin also got AC/DC for the track “Thunderstruck” and Creedence Clearwater Revivial for “Fortunate Son”.

Whether you’re a film buff or a music addict, Battleship is undoubtedly the movie for you. With Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker as your visuals and classic rockstars entertaining your ears, there’s so much to look forward to with Battleship.
