Before its theatrical release the stars of This Is The End had critics wondering how meta can the film possibly get? Well, it looks like the play on their personalities extends past the film and into the soundtrack.
In This Is The End we’re given an exaggerated version into the lives of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson as they barricade themselves in Franco’s house for the end of the world. The film is filled with jokes about the actors failures in the industry, and peppered with jokes that attacks the public perception of each Hollywood star featured.
Now we have a look into the soundtrack that makes up the outrageous film, and there’s more meta to enjoy. Besides Seth Rogen letting his love of old school hip hop show, James Franco’s jazz band Daddy is also featured on the soundtrack, which is a bit of a play on his own meta-persona. In addition hip hop highlights include KRS-One, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and J-Kwon.
Of course for those who haven’t seen the film, the soundtrack listing may spoil you a bit, particularly the usage of two huge songs in the film, that get the most laughs in the outrageous comedy.
This Is The End’s soundtrack listing is as follows:
- 1. Take Yo Panties Off – Snoop Dogg & Craig Robinson
- 2. Step Into A World (Rapture’s Delight) – KRS-One
- 3. Tipsy (Club Mix) – J-Kwon
- 4. A Joyful Process – Funkadelic
