As Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 nears the end it’s run in theaters, the franchise has released one of the coolest pieces of Guardians merchandise available. Guardians director James Gunn has confirmed that Awesome Mix Vol. 2 is now available on cassette tape.
The cassette comes with all 14 songs that were in the flick, ranging from ‘Mr. Blue Sky,’ the song Baby Groot kicked the movie off by dancing to all the way to ‘The Chain,’ the Fleetwood Mac song that played in the background as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) fought his jerk of a dad.
If you recall from the original Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord’s mother gave him a present as she laid on her deathbed — a present that ended up being a cassette labeled as Awesome Mix Vol. 2.
In a brilliant marketing move by Marvel Studios, the group decided to release the soundtrack of Vol. 2 not only digitally and on CD, but also on vinyl and cassette. You know, because all the cool kids listen to vinyl records and cassette tapes.
