‘Rock of Ages’ Soundtrack Revealed; What Does Tom Cruise Sing?
Let’s be honest: ‘Rock of Ages‘ doesn’t look so hot. At least not based on the film’s trailer. But if you’ve ever had a jones to hear Tom Cruise sing Def Leppard or Russell Brand sing REO Speedwagon, then you’re in luck. The details for the ‘Rock of Ages’ soundtrack have been released that show us exxactly what we’ll be listening to and who’ll be singing it, when the film hits theaters.
It doesn’t seem very “rock ‘n roll” to have Catherine Zeta-Jones singing Pat Benatar but, then again, ‘Rock of Ages’ is based on a Broadway musical, which isn’t exactly rock ‘n roll to begin with. And besides, they’re singing Poison and Foreigner here, not “Exile on Main Street” or “Born to Run” or something. This movie could be very bad, but it won’t be because it’s not “rock” enough. It’s exactly the right amount of rock for a summer movie based on a Broadway show based on a mixed-bag of 80s MTV hits.
But we digress…it doesn’t seem that Cruise’s rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” (glimpsed in the trailer) has made the soundtrack, nor does anything from Mary J. Blige who’s, y’know, an actual singer. But here’s what you’ll get if you buy the soundtrack when it hits iTunes on June 5th.
And hey, I’m surprised Cruise himself didn’t show up to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to fill in for Axl Rose.
