Not all Iron Man 2’s songs are from AC/DC

Date: May / 02 / 2010 + Comments: 21

IronMan 2’s soundtrack is composed only by songs of AC/DC, but in the movie we can hear another songs being played in the background for some scenes.


For example: When Tony Stark is drunk in his birthday party and decides to fight against his friend Rhodey (who is wearing the Mark II armor) Tony asks to the DJ to play a song that will suit that situation, and we can hear:

:music: Another One Bites The Dust by Queen … I did not expect this.

    Did anyone else catch onto the fact that “Picking Up The Pieces” by The Average White Band, which plays when Hammer takes the stage at the expo was used in another classic Favreau movie? That’s right, it’s also the opening theme to “Swingers”. I think Favreau put that in as a little easter egg. I just happened to watch Iron Man 2 again today, and it reminded me that I was the only one in the theatre who chuckled when I heard it. I decided to do some digging online to see if anyone else picked it up, but sadly, it looks like I’m the only person on the planet who noticed this, or cared enough to mention it. lol. Well, just so you know, at least one person got it, John!
