From here, it was released as a single and topped the Billboard charts.

Peaking at the top of the Billboard Top Albums Chart, the album has sold 3. Guitar and bass undulate with nervous energy. Hidden fields.

Stone Temple Pilots. Nine Inch Nails. Rage Against the Machine. Violent Femmes. For Love Not Lisa. The Jesus and Mary Chain. The first song was titled "Take" on the promo version of the album. It was renamed "Forward" just before the album was released. The Cure. Album only. Machines Of Loving Grace. Stone Temple Pilots. Nine Inch Nails. Rage Against The Machine. The Cure's "Burn" sets the tone, unraveling as a brooding, goth-styled manifesto, before Nine Inch Nails roll out a cover of Joy Division's "Dead Souls" that chills with haunting guitar lines and Trent Reznor's foreboding vocals.

Again nodding to the movie's graphic-novel heritage, the Rollins Band's guttural take on Suicide's electro-punk epic "Ghostrider" resonates like a demonic incantation. Listen on Apple Music. Apple Music Preview. Sign Out. Sign In. Try It Now. The Cure. Machines of Loving Grace landed into this grouping. The bending and snapping bassline is catchy, there are nice guitar builds and releases, and some of the compositional shifts throughout the track are interesting. Each verse moves forward with sandy vocals, tranquil acoustic guitars, and hushed beats.

Against this softness, each chorus is rushed-in by a wave of crashing, distorted guitar and melodic shouted voices. By contemporary standards, this formula is tired and overused. In , it still held relevancy. From here, it was released as a single and topped the Billboard charts. Joy Division was not in demand. Nine Inch Nails was. The band was quickly growing in popularity and bandleader Trent Reznor was becoming a reluctant icon for teenagers who wore black t-shirts and sour faces.

Beyond this, the track prompted listeners to go out and explore Joy Division, to discover an iconic post-punk act that was only beginning to earn their deserved recognition.

The lyrics, penned by vocalist Zach de la Rocha, hit with truths about white colonialism. Rage Against The Machine made a lot of noise in the early to mid '90s. Song title: Color Me Once Performed by: Violent Femmes Track score: 3 out of 5 Violent Femmes hit big with their self-titled debut and then struggled to maintain that momentum. The remainder of their career went under-appreciated. Here, that feeling of dread carries over to despair.

The original track was released by the band Suicide in Rollins Band took the skeleton from that original and built an entirely different body around it.

Song title: Milktoast Performed by: Helmet Track score: 3 out of 5 The first two Helmet records were critical favorites. They had a third album in the pipeline when The Crow came out. Still, it fits the overall mood. Henry Rollins is awesome here and the slow, prodding groove of the band make this a heavy hitter right in the middle of the soundtrack.

This came off their album Betty and had heavy rotation on MTV becoming their only charting single. Their off-kilter hardcore riffage and alternative take on Metal was great back then, while making some heads explode in the process. After that is Oklahoma locals!!! Funny note, members of this band also played in the Chainsaw Kittens, heh heh.

Covering Joy Division is not popular with hardcore fans unless done properly and without too much nuance. Lyrically it is dense and the topic of minority genocide and culture abuse hits home hard…. A bit more psychedelic inspired and depressing, the song is not your typical upbeat VF release.
