BlabberMouth.net is reporting that Atlanta band, MASTODON, have written and recorded a song that will be included in Bill and Ted Face the Music.
On the topic of MASTODON‘s contribution to “Bill & Ted Face The Music”, Bill said: “Working with Hollywood is — same with record companies — they think that when you’re an artist, a musician, it’s like going to McDonald’s — they can just order what they want and you get it your way, and there it is. It’s, like, no, it doesn’t [work that way], at least with our band. There might be some session guys or whatever that can work like that, like, ‘Hey, I want a bluesy jingle that goes something like that,’ and they can pull that out of their ass in a minute. But we’re not like that.
“With the movie industry, they were, like, ‘We want a song for the movie, and this is the description of the part.’ So we wrote something, and we turned it in, and we don’t hear back for weeks, for months. And then they’re, like, ‘Yeah, well, the director doesn’t really like this part’ — I guess like a 20-second clip — and he’s, like, ‘Yeah, he doesn’t like this. Can you change this?’ And I’m, like, ‘No. I can’t. I’m not changing it. I’m sorry. Don’t use the song then.’ I was pissed. They were, like, ‘They wanted more like an AC/DC style,’ and I’m, like, ‘Then fucking call AC/DC.’
