There’s a new trend in trailers where you are basically required to play a hit song that is at least 20 years old. One of the reasons why I love the Star Wars trailers so much is because they don’t rely on Queen or Run DMC to make their movie appear better.
Star Wars took place a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Beastie Boys don’t even exist yet. I remember the Leonardo DiCaprio Great Gatsby remix had Jay-Z songs in it and it made absolutely no sense.
Having said that, you can put Sabotage by the Beastie Boys over any piece of footage and it becomes fire emoji instantly. I didn’t think I could get more hyped for this film and then BAM, basically a brand new trailer even though it’s the same exact footage that I’ve seen a bajillion times already.
I will be there on opening day with or without Sabotage playing. Preferably with.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you want Adrock and Mike D to score the next Star Wars film. Also, go ahead and give Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here.
