POP ASSEMBLE!: An 'Avengers'-Inspired Playlist


So, fam -- did you see "The Avengers" this past weekend? For the six of you in the entire world who didn't (seriously, get on the stick), let me be the millionth person to tell you you're seriously missing out. And not just on the delicious eye candy that is Chris Evans. The movie itself is sincerely really well done -- a perfect popcorn-smacking fusion of action, plot and humor.


Watching "The Avengers" inspired my latest in semi-pointless playlists, which you can peruse as you'd like via my Spotify. The entire list is available, sans my boys in Super Junior & TVXQ! (sad face), so if you'd like those two as well, just give me a shout in the comments and I'll send them your way. Check out the tunes below and beyond the cut...

Robyn - Konichiwa B*tches
A great way to kick off an even greater record...



Labrinth - Earthquake (feat. Tinie Tempah)
Sick backbeat is sick...

Super Junior - Superman
All salute KPOP's largest leader of the Hallyu Wave till the last man stands...

Daft Punk - Harder Better Faster Stronger
Kanye "remix" not included...

Trapt - Headstrong
All it takes is a few seconds of that intro and I'm instantly transported to my sophomore year of high school...

The Knife - Silent Shout
Proof positive the Swedes aren't all sunshine and lollipops when it comes to epic pop...

Fort Minor - Remember the Name
A formula for success: 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to remember the name...

2NE1 - I Am The Best
Synth, stomp beat, brahs and CL's "Oh My God"...

Christina Aguilera - Birds of Prey
This stone-cold creeper was left off Bionic's main tracklist and all Xtina fans (myself included) mourn...

Florence + The Machine - Breath of Life
Because Flo can do no wrong. Period.

Light Asylum - Dark Allies
Slightly psycotic delivery with laser synth...

5ive - Everybody Get Up
(British!) Boy Band Attitude multiplied by Joan Jett's bad ass-ness. Hey The Wanted & One Direction, please take notes...

Switchfoot - Meant to Live
It may not be their best known hit, but it certainly fills you up...

Tohoshinki/TVXQ! - Survivor
So that the world can become brighter, smile! Smile! Live on, Survivor!

Escala - Reqiuem For A Tower / Kashmir (feat. Slash)
First discovered on Britain's Got Talent, this orchestral quartest is exactly that...


Chad Kroeger - Hero (feat. Josey Scott)
The ultimate in 'Superhero' soundtrack cuts for me, as it was used as the theme for Spider-Man ten years ago -- which coincidentally was the first film I saw in what is currently the only still standing movie theater in my hometown.

Simon Curtis - Superhero
Because, duh.
