When Tony Stark jumps out of an airplane in the cool new trailer for 'Iron Man 2' he did it to the grind of AC/DC's 1980 anthem "Shoot to Thrill."

Now, Marvel Studios and Columbia Records have announced plans to release the CD compilation AC/DC: IRON MAN 2 on April 19, 2010. It'll hold 15 classic AC/DC tracks, some of which will be featured in the film. The play list includes "Shoot to Thrill", "Back in Black", "Thunderstruck", "Highway to Hell" and (appropriately enough) "War Machine".

Pre-orders begin today, January 26th at Walmart.com for the AC/DC: Iron Man 2 CD and at Amazon.com for a deluxe version of AC/DC: Iron Man 2 – CD+DVD and two LP vinyl packages.

The debut video from AC/DC:  Iron Man 2 is the AC/DC’s classic album cut "Shoot To Thrill," which was filmed live last month in Buenos Aires during the band’s highly acclaimed Black Ice World Tour, the second highest grossing world tour of 2009 according to concert industry trade publication Pollstar.  The video also incorporates exclusive footage from “IRON MAN 2” and debuts today worldwide. Check ACDC.com and marvel.com for more information.  “Shoot To Thrill” was originally recorded for the band’s 50-million selling album Back In Black, one of the best selling albums of all time.

"Jon Favreau’s vision and passion for AC/DC’s music blend seamlessly into this incredible film" said Steve Barnett, co-chairman of Columbia Records.  "The music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film."

"Music is an integral part of the Tony Stark and Iron Man experience, and we are pleased that Columbia and AC/DC are taking part in the franchise’s phenomenon. Through this relationship, the band is delivering fans supercharged Iron Man branded music through all our combined consumer touch points, from the movie to retail outlets and even virally with the debut of the new video,” said Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer, Marvel Studios.

This is a very, very good thing. It's only missing 'Live Wire'.

Favreau has absolutely nailed it.

very very cool- one of the very few soundtracks I will happily add to my own personal collection. AC DC is a great rock band

Reminds me of the compilation disc for 'Maximum Overdrive'...

I am going to preorder right now!

WHO MADE WHO should be on here since part of the story is about technology Stark takes from WHIPLASH's family and the maker's of War Machine's suit.

DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP might not fit since there is so much expensive weaponry.

FIRE YOUR GUNS and Shake Your Foundations. Got ya by the balls would work for BLACK WIDOW.

 

I saw there show on August 14 2009 at the United Center. 6 hidden cannons on one end. Dirty Deeds was extremely well done. Angus is = to Kieth Richards, Clapton and Townsend.

Its sad a piece of shit like Michael Jackson who sat on his ass much of her life gets credit for doing so little and getting people to like terrible music.

The animated video for WAR MACHINE was mindblowing. I was thinking it would be a great song for the movie and I bet they wrote it a while ago.

If Thunderstruck is in the film and the line about "We've been to Texas', yeah Texas and we had some fun" hopefully will be right for the scene.

Favreau should use the 18 wheeler with the Green Goblin head.

It's OK. I prefer classically based soundtracks. But, for a movie like Iron Man 2, I guess AC/DC works! I'm still very stoked for this flic though! Can't wait!

noahbody 1/26/2010 7:41:30 PM

Rock on!

They didn't think Big Balls was suitable for the soundtrack?
