The soundtrack album to Warner Bros.'s comic book hit Suicide Squad has been nominated for five Grammy Awards.
"Heathens," the soundtracks' original song by Twenty-One Pilots, is the standout success of the album with three nominations to itself: Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance, and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
The album itself was nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media, and "Purple Lamborghini" by Skrillex and Rick Ross will go up against "Heathens" in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category.
So, the most it can win is 4 Grammys -- but that ain't bad.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy, much of the film's promotion and a lot of its sonic identity was wrapped up in its comforting and sometimes ironic soundtrack, which blended hard rock, rap and R&B with classic rock and covers to create a fleshed-out and somewhat shizophrenic world.
Warner Bros. took note of the nomination on social media right away:
Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by David Ayer, the film starred Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Viola Davis. The cast also included Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut.0comments
