The killer soundtrack from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which features the imaginary 80s rock band Star-Lord, will be released on vinyl shortly.
The original Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack and the game’s fictional 80s rock band Star-Lord will be released on vinyl soon. The sci-fi superhero adventure from Eidos-Montréal appears to capture the essence of Marvel’s interplanetary misfits, including the franchise’s penchant for killer soundtracks. The soundtrack of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is from the 1980s, allowing players to rock out while fighting hordes of enemy aliens.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, like the live-action version of Marvel’s outer space criminals, incorporates music into the experience. One of the protagonist Star-few Lord’s remnants from Earth is a mixtape of bombastic rock anthems he treasures. Players can choose which songs are playing at any given time while exploring Peter Quill’s spaceship, the Milano. In addition, the quill can give his comrades a mid-fight pep talk while blasting one of the game’s many different melodies thanks to the Huddle system, which allows him to do so while blasting one of the game’s many various tunes. Star-Lord, a fictional 80s rock band whose creative anthems and theatrical flair inspired Peter Quill’s superhero moniker, also appears in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has announced an upcoming vinyl edition through Mondo to commemorate the game’s musical flair. The original music for the cosmic epic, written by Richard Jacques, will be included on the double vinyl, adding gravitas and passion to the game’s emotional narrative. The second half of the big musical release will be made up of Star-Lord’s fictional rock band and their hard-hitting album “Space Rider.” Senior audio director Steve Szczepkowski of Eidos-Montreal created the make-believe band, and fans can now bring the intergalactic invention home on a vintage medium.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy includes a collection of well-known 80’s hits in addition to Richard Jacques’ original music and Steve Szczepkowski’s transition into the band Star-Lord. KISS, Mötley Crüe, Pat Benatar, and Billy Idol are featured on the game’s soundtrack. These musicians assist Peter Quill in building his connection to Earth and act as a tribute to his late mother. Rick Astley’s 1987 breakthrough song “Never Gonna Give You Up” is also included in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition, a new video shows streamers being “rickrolled” when they fail to sufficiently motivate the Guardians team, brilliant use of the memetic hit in the game’s promotion.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy puts a major emphasis on music throughout the interstellar adventure, staying true to Marvel‘s crew of cosmic misfits. The game continuously introduces fresh tunes to players, from Richard Jacques’ dramatic score to the Star-Lord band’s powerful riffs. Eidos-Montreal can pay homage to an older music medium while also sharing the game’s amazing tunes by publishing these compositions on vinyl. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will bring a variety of genres to vinyl with its atmospheric score and big rock choruses.
The PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC versions of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are available now.
