031309 sexbobomb Trends: Becks Fake Band Blows Up

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has started its journey on the international circuit, with European openings littering the next few weeks. In the meantime the soundtrack has be skyrocketing through charts, with acts like Frank Black and Plumtree snatching up Hype Chart positions week after week.

Beck stood in for one of the fictional bands in the film, Sex Bob-Omb, and Trends took a look at how they’ve been doing since the record dropped.

The four songs that pepper the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World soundtrack are an eclectic bunch. Beck’s usual genre-shuffling works well, making them an upbeat collection that work not just onscreen but on your speakers as well.

So far 8,806 listeners have tried them out, which compared to other soundtrack plays is a huge amount. It adds up to 86,649 plays, very impressive for an underground act just weeks into their life.

Who knows, a full album could see them fighting for space alongside other bands on the record like Metric, Broken Social Scene or even Beck himself…

Make sure your plays count by heading to now. Whether you’re listening to hot new bands like Sex Bob-Omb or want to give Odelay a spin you can can build a listening history all of your own and get personalized recommendations to suit your tastes.

    I fully agree! Scott Pilgrim totally worked that bass as if through the collective will of Dee Dee Ramone. Old school punk rock style but with that grunge/Alternative edge. The bass off was killer! With that Evil Ex bustin’ out Flea riffs all wild and crazy like. Good times… Yeah! That end song where the band plays without Scott Pilgrim was the sickest! Cool to know that I can hear it any time I want. Rock on KROQ!!! :P
