Favorite song in grindhouse

Planet Terror:

Don’t know what the track is, but it plays right when the cops & El Wray drive up to the hospital. Love that lil’ techno begninning.

“Two against the World” is sweet too.

Death Proof:

“Down in Mexico” BUT I actually perfer a version of this song that appears on a Coasters-Greatest hits album instead of this soundtrack. There’s just a slightly different beat.

Definitely The Last Race (and it has the most plays on my iTunes account to prove it).

It’s got this perfect mix of thrill, sex and danger all in a 2.5 minute period.
