'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.

The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
