This week we’re watching HEAVY METAL


The soundtrack was released on LP in 1981, but for legal reasons, was not released on CD until 1995. The album peaked at number 12 on the Billboard 200 chart. Blue Öyster Cult wrote and recorded a song called “Vengeance (The Pact)” for the film, but the producers declined to use the song because the lyrics provided a capsulized summary of the “Taarna” vignette. “Veteran of the Psychic Wars” was used instead. Both songs can be found on Blue Öyster Cult’s album Fire of Unknown Origin. Though used in the film, the songs “Through Being Cool” by Devo and “E5150” by Black Sabbath were not included in the released soundtrack album. These songs are on New Traditionalists and Mob Rules, respectively.
