Vintage Zombies Rock!
While I'm not super versed in Halo video games, Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel without a Pulse has an amazing soundtrack of doo-wop songs performed by indie bands. Clearly I grew up before video games had sound tracks but I think it's a great concept to gain exposure in a new market.
This modern Zombie soundtrack (I laugh every time I read that) features a fantastic cover of The Drifter's, There Goes my Baby, performed by The Walkmen. Additional artists, including The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, Ben Kweller and Phantom Planet, put a new spin on old classics. What a great album to add to the collection?! Perfect listening music for cocktail hour!
