The Judgment Night soundtrack, featuring a special Faith No More song, has landed itself in another Top 5 List. This time it’s in Revolvers’ Top 5 Movie Soundtracks
Faith No More appeared on the Judgment Night soundtrack back in 1993. Whilst the movie didn’t garner any real support, the soundtrack set it apart. Metal bands were paired up with Hip-Hop artists to collaborate on a new song. Faith No More were paired up with the Boo-Yaa Tribe, and created the track “Another Body Murdered”. Patton pretty much just provides the yelling and scretching that we’d later come to love in King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime songs like “Cuckoo for Caca” and then onto other projects like Fantomas.
The Judgment Night soundtrack landed third spot on the list. Beating the Singles soundtrack in fifth place and the Spawn soundtrack in fourth place which paried up metal and electronica artists. It was beaten by the Queen of the Damned soundtrack, featuring songs by Jonathan Davis of Korn, in second place, and the amazing soundtrack to The Crow in first place.
It’s interesting to see who else appears on the album that Mike Patton would later collaborate with:
- Helmet provides the first track, alongside House of Pain, which featured John Stanier, who would later join Tomahawk, and DJ Lethal who would join Patton on “Lookaway” for a collaboration with Korn.
- Teenage Fan Club and De La Soul provide the second track. Patton collaborated with Maseo from De La Soul on Lovage.
- Slayer appear on the album with Ice-T however, Dave Lombardo doesn’t appear as he’d left recently left Slayer.
- And finally, the ninth track features Dinosaur Jr and Del The Funky Homosapien. Patton has collaborated with Del in and his Deltron 3030 alter-ego.

Not so for its revolutionary soundtrack, comprising 11 of the most random — and to our great surprise, refreshing — musical crossovers of musical memory. Slayer and Ice-T? Sure. Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill? Why not! Faith No More and Boo-Yaa Tribe? Hell yeah. Teenage Fanclub and De La Soul? You fucking betcha; as with its associated film, proper enjoyment of the Judgment Night soundtrack requires one to suspend disbelief in notions of common musical sensibility. The only difference is that this time, it’s good.
