MCU director James Gunn revealed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's new Awesome Mix Vol. 3 soundtrack.
Ever since 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, Awesome Mix playlists have been integral to both the Guardians' unique style and its storytelling.
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 serving as the franchise's final chapter, Awesome Mix Vol. 3 just may be the most important - and anticipated - playlist yet.
A month away from Vol. 3's release, the director unveiled his new 17-song playlist as not only a preview for the Awesome Mix album but also his final Guardians film.
Where To Listen to Guardians Vol. 3 Soundtrack
James Gunn publicly shared the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix: Vol. 3 cover art, which revealed the 17 songs which will be included in the upcoming film.
Since Peter Quill received a 2000s-era Zune after Vol. 2, he now has access to more songs than ever, explaining why this playlist features tunes from multiple decades.
The following is where fans can listen to all 17 of the new soundtrack's songs:
"Creep" - Acoustic - Radiohead
"Crazy on You" - Heart
"Since You Been Gone" - Rainbow
"In the Meantime" - Spacehog
"Reasons" - Earth, Wind, and Fire
"Do You Realize??" - The Flaming Lips
"We Care a Lot" - Faith No More
"Koinu no Carnival" - From “Minute Waltz”- (Instrumental) - EHAMIC
"I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" - Alice Cooper
"San Francisco" - The Mowglis
"Poor Girl" - X
"This is the Day" - The The
"No Sleep Til Brooklyn" - Beastie Boys
"Dog Days Are Over" - Florence + Machine
"Badlands" - Bruce Springsteen
"I Will Dare" - The Replacements
"Come and Get Your Love" - Redbone (Rerecorded Version)
Why the Guardians of the Galaxy's New Playlist Is Different
This Awesome Mix Vol. 3 soundtrack is a departure from its predecessors in that it features music from the 1970s through the 2000s.
Also, unlike the original Awesome Mix and Awesome Mix Vol. 2, this playlist doesn't come from Peter's mother but rather from his adoptive father, Yondu.
Still, two songs, in particular, are already familiar to Guardians fans.
Spacehog's "In the Meantime" was used in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's original trailer, and, of course, Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love" is now synonymous with this intergalactic band of misfits.
Since James Gunn's hand-curated list of tunes are reflections of each film's plot and its characters, fans now have even more material from which to speculate leading up to the film's debut.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 arrives in theaters on Friday, May 5.
