'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

The new video game Injustice: Gods Among Us has compiled quite a diverse soundtrack, featuring tunes from Depeche Mode, MSTRKRFT, Rise Agains, Portugal. The Man and budding electro-rockers AWOLNATION. The latter contribute "ThisKidsNotAlright," a brash, brazen stomper with a gritty blues twinge that'll certainly keep you amped while you're beating up the bad guys when the game comes out April 16th. The soundtrack, Injustice: Gods Among Us – The Album, will be out digitally the same day, with a CD release to follow on April 23rd through WaterTower Music.

Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
