Listen to The Rock Father's Awesome Mix & Win a GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2 Prize Pack!

Written by

This special feature is brought to you in collaboration between Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Home Entertainment & The Rock Father™.

Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has come home on Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack (out 8/22), and to celebrate the release, we're throwing some big focus onto the music of the Guardians. Filmmaker James Gunn stresses that "music is such an important part of this movie," and that's something carried over from the first film, and even into Disney XD's animated series. Awesome Mix Vol. 1, Awesome Mix Vol. 2 and Cosmic Mix Vol. 1 are all integral pieces of the Guardians experience, with the song selection for the live-action films being hand-picked and written into each screenplay by Gunn. With music in mind, my friends at Disney asked what an "Awesome Mix" would sound like if chosen by The Rock Father™ - a potential soundtrack to my four decades of life. The results of that challenge can be heard in Guardians of the Galaxy 2: The Rock Father's Awesome Mix Tape - an 81-song collection containing over five hours of music available to stream on Spotify. Now we're giving you a chance to add to it, but also a shot at winning a fantastic Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Prize Pack!

Being as close to and consumed by music as I am, creating an Awesome Mix was no simple task. Even with its length, it's incomplete, and offers just a sampling of the music that has shaped me. From important songs of my childhood and youth into my teen years, adulthood and now, I hope that you'll find this to be an enjoyable collection of genre-spanning sounds that will aid in your own music discovery. Follow the playlist on Spotify, or stream via the Player below...
