First things first: Yes, you'll be able to dose your next karaoke party with those famous lines about spinning webs of any size when you pop this disc into your sound system. Aerosmith's update on the classic Spidey theme chugs along with gusto, although it doesn't approach the thrills 'n' spills approach of the original song, which also appears here. Admittedly, it's tough to discern exactly how most of the tunes here relate to snaring baddies. Songs such as the Strokes' sensuous "When It Started" and Macy Gray's typically oddball "My Nutmeg Phantasy" (remixed here by Tom Morello) would probably work wonders when Peter Parker (played in this big-screen version by Tobey Maguire) sets his sights on snaring gal pal Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) instead. Indeed, while there's a good bit of standard action pic thrashing -- Alien Ant Farm doing "Bug Bites" and Sum 41 turning in an alternate version of "What We're All About" -- this soundtrack provides more than just a pedal-to-the-metal thrill ride. Former Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell waxes nicely moody on " She Was My Girl," while Slipknot's Corey Taylor gives a glimpse at the real guy behind the mask on a dark but moving "Brother." Far more three-dimensional than most of its ilk, the soundtrack to Spider-Man should appeal to even diehard arachnophobes -- and maybe even a Woody Allen fan or two.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The soundtrack to Spider-Man is pitched directly at the nu-metal
ap-rock/post-grunge crowd. Many of the bands do try to tie into the theme of Spider-Man -- Alien Ant Farm has "Bug Bytes," Chad Kroeger of Nickelback offers the dour anthem of "Hero" -- and some songs distinguish themselves along the way: the Hives display why they're rightly touted as an antidote to generic modern rock with "Hate to Say I Told You So," the Strokes toss in their B-side worthy "When It Started," and Pete Yorn gives listeners his gentle "Undercover."

Just kidding, the movie rocked, as does the equally entertaining soundtrack. This is honestly one of the best C.D's ever made. The only downers were really Macy Gray and Alien Ant Farm, they are a few i just dont listen to . I love all the other songs though. Theory Of A Dead Man is for sure gonna be huge and im sure the arent gonna be a poser band like Staind to Fred Durst(cause you know Chad Kroeger is responsible for discovering and producing them on his record label...what you didnt...)Any Nickelback is good Nickelback as far as im concerned. I have a Nickelback cover band and we are gonna be adding a few songs from this album to our song lists because that is how good it really is.I always know where you are, you never know where i am , you got me sneakin around, like the invisible man!!!Oh yeah Default rocks too.

I really like the movie! My fave song was Hero, cuz it is mine and my boyfriends song. We danced to it! It is like the best song!

When I saw the movie I really love Tobey cause he is so cute and hot. The music, to the point is all so awsome, I really love it. I think its my fav soundtrack from any movie. I Luv Sum41's Itz Wha Wre All Bout. That song is now in my brain, and Im humming it. Spiderman is like the coolest superhero he has awsome powers and I wanna be a spidergurl too!! I love this soundtrack!!

I've downloaded a few songs from this soundtrack. They're pretty good. I like Hero. But what really gets to me is the song Bother by Corey Taylor. It really ticks me off at the fact that no one ever gives him credit for anything just because he's in slipknot. slipknot rocks. and so will corey's new song!

I can't believe they didn't use the Ramones cover of the classic spiderman theme. The Ramones where from New York - home of Spiderman.Joey Ramone died last year ,It would have been a nice tribute. Aerosmith are a great band but it should have been The Ramones !

This cd is one of the best cds I have ever heard. I recommend that everyone buy this album. I think the best songs are ''Hero'' and the one by Bleu. The cd is almost as good as the movie itself...and that is saying a lot!!!!

The soundstrack is awesome and the movies is gonna be even better. Hero is gonna be a big hit. It already plays in my hometowns radio station.

An amazing movie also comes with an amazing soundtrack. It has so many different great bands and songs in in. For example my favorite is ''Hero'' by the lead singer od Nickelback, Chad Kroeger. Its great~ and everyone should get it and watch the movie! I've seen it twice!!! Bye!
Guest More than 1 year ago
if anyone knows who sings on the track ''hero'' with chad kroeger, email me at winky2121@aol.com he sings the second verse. this CD should be really good. default and nickelback are studs and theory of a dead man is a rising band.

One big thing could be not to forget the Ramones, dear friends, one of first bands who wrote a song for Spiderman, and, men, it is a powerfull song! Charly Nielsen

This soundtrack is so awesome. I got it after hearing Hero, but I really like Corey Taylor's song. It has awesome variety and the songs are cool! The CD kicks butt!

There is not a solitary track on this album I do not like. I have been listening to it constantly since I bought it two weeks ago and I am not remotely bored of it. All the tracks are involving and it is truly a great album for turning up in the car when bombing along the motorway. Many of the tracks also have a great sing along feel (for when you have it turned up in the car :-)). My favourite tracks in order of preference are: Bother - Corey Taylor ... absolutely incredible track, great lyrics and fantastic singer; Hero - Chad Kroeger ... great rock ballad; Somebody Else - Bleu ... superb lyrics and great singer.

Spider Man Soundtrack is pretty good. I've heard better, but also heard worse. The movie was good,and so was the CD. It has a couple good hits in my mind. I really liked Hero by Chad Kroeger, and Bother by Corey Taylor. Everyone was going on about how Theory of a Dead Man's song (Invisible Man), was so good. Well I really didn't like it as much as everyone said I would. Don't get me wrong or anything. They will be a good group, but I just didn't like the song. Some more good songs on this soundtrack are as follow: Learn to Crawl- Black Lab, Somebody Else- Bleu, Blind- Default, Undercover- Pete Yorn, and She was my Girl- Jerry Cantrell.

Chad Kroeger's vocals, along with those of Josey Scott, are perfect with the melody and words of this song. I was pleasantly surprised to find several other tracks I really liked (such as Invisible Man by a yet to be released band called Theory of a Dead Man). And the music by the Hives is great too.

I was shocked to hear Corey Taylor's voclas on ''Bother''. This is the same Corey from SLIPKNOT??? WOW!!! ''Hero'' will ride the vocals of Chad Kroeger (and a verse by Saliva's Josey Scott) to the top of the charts. Theory of a Dead Man was a bit disapointing with the vocals sounding too much like Scott Stapp for my personal taste, but it was good song otherwise. Pete Yorn's ''Undercover'' is a good song, as is Injected's ''I-IV-V'', Greenwheel's ''Shelter'', and Sum 41's ''What We're All About''. My personal joy (other than ''Bother'') was the return of Jerry Cantrell, with ''She Was My Girl''. It has some now haunting Alice In Chains elements like the backing vocals, which bring to mind AIC's Layne Staley (RIP Layne... may you achieve in death what you could not in life). Overall, it's a good CD, and I recommend it.

Theory of a deadman are good friends of mine. I wish them the best of luck. I hope that all the success follows them on their journeys. I have know Dave Brenner (guitarist for theory of a deadman) for a number of years and yes he is a cool cat.Their music is excellent so you should go and buy it right now!
