This soundtrack is a little different from soundtracks from my other books, because the hero in Savage Redemption, Ben, loves punk music. Because I used to listen to a little bit of punk (shout out to my high school BFF, Brian, who introduced me to it), I thought it might be fun to put together a list of punk songs that would work with Ben and Delilah’s story.
You can find the soundtrack on YouTube, except for the original version of “Past Mistakes.” There wasn’t a good recording of it, so I found an acoustic tribute which doesn’t have quite the same energy. Maybe you can hunt down the original 88 Fingers Louie recording on whatever music apps the kids are using these days. 🙂
- The Offspring, “Gone Away”
- The Bouncing Souls, “Cracked”
- Five across the eyes, “Past Mistakes” (a tribute to 88 Fingers Louie)
- Lagwagon, “Violins”
- The Vandals, “Don’t Stop Me Now” (funny video)
