Monday Mix: Songs About Star Wars

With the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens coming up this week, I had this bizarre urge to listen to some Star Wars music besides just "The Imperial March" over and over again. This birthed the If It's Too Loud "Songs About Star Wars" mix. I tried to avoid songs that simply make one reference to Star Wars and aim for songs actually about Star Wars. Of course there is some nerdcore (MC Chris), forgotten 90s bands (2 Skinnee J's), 90s bands that are still with us (Blink-182, Presidents of the United States of America), bands you would never think of doing Star Wars covers (Queens of the Stone Age, Ash), and "Weird Al," of course. It's perfect to listen to while you're at work waiting for it to end so you can head out to the theater, on your way to the theater, to avoid figuring out name mix up games in the theater, etc.

  1. How'd you miss Chris Webby? I mean he's no mc chris, but would be a strong competitor for the number 2 spot.

  3. you should check out 2 Skinnee J's "Irrisistable Force" on youtube. It was never officially released because they couldn't clear the darth vader imperial death march loop. Lucas films quoted them $500,000 to clear it. In hindsight... perhaps a bargain?

  5. Remember that these clips do take up bandwidth so people with slow connections will have a problem with slow page loading.
