Empire Records 2.0: The Soundtrack That Could Have Been

As the 1995 cult classic, Empire Records, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, we took the liberty to imagine what a sequel (or a rather modernized remake) of the soundtrack would entail. If we’re being honest, we’ve thought about this for quite some time, and we’d like to think you have too. We put together a hypothetical playlist of 10 tracks that we think would best fit an Empire Records 2.0 soundtrack; just enough post-90’s nostalgia to invoke a sense of what chaos would have ensued had there been a remake or sequel. A new “glue of the world,” perhaps? Basically, Mark would love this shit. Also, does anyone else think Adam Driver would make an excellent Berko?

Enjoy and stay tuned for more on Empire Records this fall!
