Guardians of the galaxy

If you just can’t get enough of the Awesome Mixes from Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn has a special treat for you today – a new tape featuring fresh tracks that he used to keep extras hyped up between takes.

Awesome Mix Volume 0 was played during the filming of the "Boot of Jemiah" sequence. Gunn explains the whole thing below:

“On lighter days, our master soundman Simon Hayes would also play music on set between takes to keep people’s energy up. He did this while shooting the credit sequence in the Temple of Morag, and he also did it for the Boot of Jemiah, so we could keep the extras hyped and alive and feeling like they were in a bar atmosphere. Being that these were night shoots, it helped to keep people awake as well! Simon took requests for the credit scene, but for the Boot of Jemiah he asked me to put together an AWESOME playlist of high energy party tunes. So I did, featuring some of my favorite tunes. My assistant Simon Hatt (50% of British people are named Simon) just found this list and sent it to me. So I thought I’d share it with you in case you wanted to make your own Boot of Jemiah playlist – or, as known from now on, Awesome Mix Volume Zero.”

Here’s the full track list:

1. "Never Wanted to Dance" – Mindless Self Indulgence

2. "Party Hard" – Andrew W.K.
3. "The Way It Was" – Aceyalone (featuring Bionik)

4. "I Like It, I Love It" – Lyrics Born
5. "Let’s Dance to Joy Division" – The Wombats
6. "Start Wearing Purple" – Gogol Bordello

7. "Ben Vereen" – Pigeon John
8. "Teenagers" – My Chemical Romance

9. "Black Fist" – Juskwam and Lyrikill
10. "Timebomb" – The Old 97′s

That’s a pretty funky and eclectic set of songs – not that we’d expect anything less from Gunn. We highlighted a few of the tracks, but if you don’t want to take the time to hunt down the rest, our friends at /Film have put them all together for your listening pleasure. It’s guaranteed to make your day a little brighter.

And since we still can’t get enough Guardians goodness around here, check out this cool new outtake from the film – one that features Star-Lord and Ronan actually having their dance-off, which is an alternate version of the scene where just Star-Lord dances.

Ronan’s got a pretty good running man going on, but we think Star-Lord’s interpretative Michael Jackson segment puts him over the top. Judges, what say you? Who’s the intergalactic king of the dance floor in this clip? 

Guardians of the Galaxy is now available to watch via digital HD. Here's where you can currently see it.
