'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.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
