The soundtrack to our graphic novel Boys Don’t Cry is now complete – click on the link if you have spotify, but for those that don’t, here’s the list (one track per scene, as long as your definition of a scene matches mine):

  1. The Damned – The Portrait
  2. Ministry – Jesus Built My Hotrod
  3. The Mission – Wasteland
  4. NIN – Hurt (live version from Further Down The Spiral)
  5. Green Day – American Idiot
  6. The Smiths – How Soon Is Now?
  7. Patti Smith – Elegie
  8. Machines of Loving Grace – Butterfly Wings
  9. The Cure – Pictures of You
  10. Jefferson Airplane – Aerie (Gang of Eagles)
  11. Danzig – Cantspeak
  12. The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry

Of course, if this was a film I’d fade out of some of the longer ones, and Pictures of You and Aerie are for the two scenes that sort of cut back and forth so some kind of blending may be necessary, but you’ll have to imagine that. I hope it adds to your enjoyment of the book (or brightens your day, or makes you go listen to a forgotten album – it made me dig out Patti Smith’s Horses).
