Young Adult Soundtrack is Alt-heavy!

“She’s so swishy in her satin and tat/ In her frock coat/ and bipperty-bopperty hat/ Oh God, I could do better than that.”

That’s Bowie hailing the “Queen Bitch” in Young Adult trailer. In this part of the world, we will get to see the Jason Reitman- Diablo Cody kiss-and-make-up baby Young Adult probably next year after its wide bid for the Oscar race. However, the details for the soundtrack of the movie has been listened and can be purchased online beginning December 6th. However, the tracklist for the album has been released and seems to be fitted for the nostalgic statement the film promises to slosh on our babies of the ’90s faces.

The story of the movie has its heroine Mavis Gray (Charlize Theron) stuck in the past, reminiscing her prom-queen confetti days in high school. She returns to Mercury (a fictional somewhere in Minnesota) years after everyone in her yearbook has gotten married and her ex-boyfriend, the balding, not-the-jock-but-more-like-a-coach-now type Buddy Slade is with kids while she recently just got divorced. And she schemes to get him back.

The Young Adult list includes Lemonheads, Veruca Salt, The Replacements, Teenage Fanclub, 4 Non Blondes and Dinosaur Jr. Aside from the originals, Juno composer Mateo Messina worked on some of Alternative Nation greats turned instrumentals like Pearl Jam’s “Even Flow,” Beck’s “Where It’s A?,” Foo Fighters’ “Big Me” and Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”
