Soundtrack Songs: Repo Man

Iggy Pop: Repo Man


If there was ever a Punk Rock film director, it would have to be Alex Cox, who brought his idiosyncratic style to films as Sid & Nancy and Walker.

Repo Man is a Cox romp that artfully mixes repo men, UFOs, the CIA, thieves and Punk Rock. It also has an amazing soundtrack that includes seminal Punk bands like the Circle Jerks, Black Flag, The Plugz and Fear, all at the top of their game, along with a theme song by the Godfather of Punk himself, Iggy Pop.

Take my advice and put Repo Man in your NetFlix Que. This way you can learn all about the Rodriguez brothers, John Wayne's two-way mirrors and just what the hell is in the trunk of that '64 Chevy Malibu.
