"I Use To Ease the Pain"

At this point, I think it's safe to say the Suicide Squad Soundtrack is going to be more memorable than the movie. I've read a few scathing reviews of the movie that allude to the lack of an R rating, poorly developed characters, and an utterly predictable plot as the reason for its downfall. I'm not a real comic book guy who truly understands the whole DC vs Marvel world, but I'm definitely up for a comic book movie if it gets good reviews. As it stands right now, the movie is hovering around 26%, which would definitely disqualify it for me as a must see.

Underwhelming movie aside, there have been more than a few tracks on the soundtrack that have got me excited. The Skrillex and Rick Ross collabo was pretty dope and twenty-one pilots' Heathens was an interesting listen. But my favorite of the bunch might the one below from Action Bronson, Dan Auerbach and Mark Ronson. Standing in the Rain is a grimy Hip Hop track with bare knuckle verses and a somber hook. It'd be something you'd expect from Wu Tang and The Black Keys vibe on the chorus give it a unique vibe. In my eyes, a soundtrack the can go across genres and has at least three standout tracks is a win in my eyes these days...#LowBarForSuccess
