Back in May, Mastodon‘s guitarist Bill Kelliher told “Rock & Roll Beer Guy” podcast about his band’s contribution to “Bill & Ted face the music”: “Working with Hollywood is – the same with record companies – they think that when you’re an artist, a musician, it’s like going to McDonald’s – they can just order what they want and you get it. your way and there it is.It’s like no it does not [work that way], at least with our band. There may be some session guys, or whatever can work like that, like ‘Hey, I want a bluesy jingle going that way’ and they can pull it out of their ass in a moment. But we are not like that.
“With the film industry, they were like ‘We want a song for the movie, and this is the description of the part.’ So we wrote something, and we turned it in, and we do not hear back for weeks, for months, and then they’re like ‘Yeah, well, the director does not like this part’ – I guess like a 20 second clip – and he is like ‘Yes, he does not like this. Can you change this?’ And I’m like “No. I can not. I’m not changing it. I’m sorry. Do not use the song then. “I was cursed. They were like: ‘They wanted more as one AC / DC style, ‘and I’m like,’ So fucking call AC / DC. ‘
“We wrote a killer fucking song, and the music director for the movie, he’s the one who chose us, he loves the song, but the director is like ‘Well, this is in conflict with that,’ he added.” I am like, “You have had it for several months. Why did not you tell us months ago? “Especially now with the pandemic, no one is in the same room together. It’s not like we all live in the same studio and we can just pull things out. of our ass all day long. “
“Bill & Ted face the music” is not the first time a Mastodon tracks have been shown in a movie image. Back in 2007, Mastodon performed the opening song of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters”.
