METALLICA, MOTORHEAD on Soundtrack for Movie “Hesher”
I’m sure you’re wondering, “Okay, what the hell does a movie have to do with metal music and why is it here on Braingell!” Simmer down my little dumplings. This movie, Hesher, has a few metal tracks which makes it worthy of being given some space here. I was able to get a look at the trailer for this movie about a month ago which you can see below. I’m probably showing my age when I say this but the first thing that struck me about this movie was the lead character, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’s all grown up! Remember that kid on the show “Rosanne” named George from back in the early ’90’s? Well, this is one in the same.
The Music of Hesher:
-The Shortest Straw: Metallica
-Fight Fire with Fire: Metallica
-Rock Out: Motorhead
-A Teenager in Love: Dion & the Belmonts
-The End of Time: The Hit Crew
-Deeply: Buddy Stuart
Here’s the press release just to give you idea of what it’s about…
“Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things, and all to the soundtrack of Metallica and Motorhead. And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devon Brochu) and his father Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in the garage uninvited. Grief stricken by the loss of TJ’s mother in a car accident, Paul can’t muster the strength to evict the strange squatter and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher’s anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.”
