Click to listen to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's 'Shadow on the Run'

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have contributed a dark, atmospheric track for the upcoming soundtrack to the hotly anticipated video game, Batman: Arkham City. While BRMC have had tracks featured on soundtracks before, bassist Robert Been tells Rolling Stone, "The developers of the game contacted us to see if we were interested in the project. We’ve never worked with video game developers before and figured it would be a different kind of challenge." The result is the suspenseful "Shadow on the Run."

"We did it pretty fast," Been explains. "We built it in pieces, brick by brick, like three little pigs trying to avoid being sweet-talked by the big bad wolf." The Batman: Arkham City soundtrack will be in stores on October 4th, but you can stream Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s "Shadow on the Run" for free here.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
