Movie Soundtracks That Changed Alternative Music

I wanted to create an alternative movies soundtrack playlist for many a reason. Nostalgia being one of them. I often like to go back to my youth through films and music. I think most of you will agree that the 90s was pretty damn awesome for both.

The ultimate alternative movie soundtracks playlist you are going to want to put on right now and start dancing around to at home! Stream free on our Spotify music station. Our music mixtapes come out every 2 weeks.

 

When thinking about some of the films that for me threw out some major tunes, I found myself thinking about Tank Girl, Pulp Fiction, Empire Records, Pump Up The Volume, Wayne’s World, The Breakfast Club and well to be honest, loads. 
 
So here is a mini example of what I think are some epic songs from movie soundtracks throughout the years. Can you name all the films? Enjoy.
