The first ever Star Wars movie without an episode number is finally out, and it’s all about that first Death Star. You know, before Death Stars became boring. To commemorate the new movie, have a playlist of Darth Vader’s favourite music.
This playlist, like the BB-8 playlist we’ve shared before, comes from the official Star Wars Spotify channel. Which means someone who technically works for Disney put together this playlist of heavy metal. Because obviously once Anakin grew out of his emo punk phase, he’d take up metal. It suits him better anyway.
This playlist includes metal staples like Megadeth, Metallica and Iron Maiden. It’s not exactly a John Williams score, but I like to believe Vader’s playing this inside his helmet to himself while they’re backing that giant parabola into place on the Death Star.
Welcome to our Featured Playlist series. Each week, we’ll share a new themed playlist, embedded for your convenience! You can copy the track list to your service of choice, or listen right here. Have a sweet playlist of your own? Share it with us in the comments below!
