This past week, you couldn’t scroll through your timeline without seeing the title Suicide Squad littered everywhere. As critics have been giving the movie less than favourable reviews (we were kinda on the fence), fans are still rooting for this star-studded movie. The wait is finally over as Suicide Squad hits theatres today.
As an added bonus, we’ve been blessed with music videos, controversial songs and questionable covers from the movie’s soundtrack, which is already No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Albums Chart.
Skrillex, Rick Ross and The Joker gave us new squad goals in “Purple Lamborghini.” Though critics have described Jared Leto’s appearance in the movie as a “glorified walk-on,” Leto is the central character in this video.
Directed by Colin Tilley, it opens with the Joker and Skrillex hanging out on a boat (sadly, there’s no Lonely Island appearance). The duo walk into the only club in the world where all the patrons stand in one corner and stare at the entrance. Rick Ross, in all-white attire, raps among the frozen party people while the crazy Joker creeps everyone out.
Also on the soundtrack, Panic! at The Disco’s cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” was met with mixed reviews when it was released yesterday. Though they’ve been playing the cover in concert for years, the band hadn’t done a studio version of the classic Queen song until now. Lead singer Brandon Urie explained to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe how previewing the movie helped them take the song to the next level.
“All the scenes I saw were incredible and it just made me more inspired, and that was even before I record the studio version,” he said. “So that fuelled exactly how the studio version went. Man, it’s just so epic!”
A few days ago, Grimes released her contribution to the soundtrack “Medieval Warfare,” which met a lot of controversy since it was being interpreted as violent towards men. In a since-deleted letter, the singer clarified the meaning of a song, saying it was “not meant to be pointedly hateful.” While some media outlets reported it was about sex, Grimes said the meaning is in the title: “The song is about medieval warfare which involved mostly dudes,” she wrote.
Written from the perspective of Harley Quinn, Grimes explained that the press changed her lyrics, which led to the miscommunication about the meaning: “P much every quoted lyric from the song has been changed to make it about sex with men and to distance the song from being about violence against men.”
