Hey kids! Believe it or not, multiple people have asked me if I’d drop a suggested playlist for my issues of Marvel Comics’ GENERATION HOPE as apparently Kieron Gillen had done before me.
And it just so happens that I was (am?) a music-mix maniac for so many people in my life, that I was really tickled to do so. That said, things have been rushed, so I hope you’ll forgive the rough and simple nature of this one. And yes, I can’t NOT think of this as a mix tape (two sides) even though I made a digital playlist.
I hope you dig the suggestions, and I hope you’ll check out Generation Hope #14 in stores tomorrow (and PREVIEWED at the end of the post)!
GENERATION HOPE MIX TAPE, Vol. 2 #1: LOVERS & FIGHTERS
SIDE A – Fighters
- “Dance Yrself Clean” – LCD Soundsystem – FYI, this is a slow starter. Don’t bail on it early!

- “I’m In Love With Destruction” – Let’s Wrestle
- “Capsize” – Karen O & the Kids
- “We Were Sick” – The Thermals

- “Trust” – Generationals
- “Gigantic” – The Pixies
- “Teenagers” – Department of Eagles
- “You Are a Tourist” – Death Cab For Cutie
DISCLAIMERS: I am not saying that Generation Hope #14 (OUT 12/21!! Pick it up near you!) synchs up with this by any means. These are mix of tracks that I listen to as I write the book for purposes of mood, youth-power, or because they remind me of something intrinsic to one or more of the Gen Hope kids. There’s also no guarantee that if you like the book, you’ll like this music or vice-versa. But hopefully, you will!
AND MERRY X-MAS!!
