Spawn has been quite a lucky franchise when it comes to music since it did get its own concept album by Iced Earth but also got a pretty damn good soundtrack for the 1997 film with Spawn: The Album. What makes this movie soundtrack different from others is that it’s mostly original tracks instead of a compilation album but that’s not where they stopped since it’s also a unique set of collaborations between well known Rock / Metal artists and electronic producers from the 90s which gives sets it apart from normal tracks.
The soundtrack begins with the single Can’t You Trip Like I do from The Crystal Method and Filter which I already talked about in a previous music match so I won’t go too much into details other than it’s a great track and wish there were more Spawn references in the music video besides random clips of the movie.
We then get a collaboration between Marilyn Manson and Sneaker Pimps with Long Hard Road Out of Hell which Todd McFarlane himself said Manson epitomized what Spawn was all about. There was some bad blood between Marilyn Manson and Sneaker Pimps over the writing of the song but nonetheless this is prime Manson. I was never a huge fan of this song but it does fit Spawn rather well thematically unlike the Filter song. The music video doesn’t really have much to do with anything since it’s just Manson being Manson in a church setting and modeling to make sure it’s out there.
