Michael Bay's childhood destroying Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have dethroned Guardians of the Galaxy as the number one movie in theaters, signaling the decline of the human race, but Guardians is kicking ass in other areas as we speak. The soundtrack to the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1, is the number one album on the Billboard digital album charts right now, according to The AV Club. The soundtrack consists of the songs on Peter Quill's mix tape that was a recurring plot point in the film, which all happen to be old hits, mostly from the seventies. According to Billboard, this is the first time an album of entirely previously released material has hit number one on the charts, selling over 100,000 copies last week alone.

On his Facebook page, GOTG director and ass-obsessed professional wrestler James Gunn boasted:

Haha! The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack is the NUMBER ONE record in the country! All those days as a child I spent locked in a room listening to AM radio were not wasted!

(Somewhere in a boardroom right now a movie executive is trying to give a film that's not testing well the 'Guardians soundtrack treatment but with a new twist' - say, nineties grunge hits over a buddy action comedy. This is something you will not thank me for.)


No. No, we will not.

So suck on that, Michael Bay! Ol' Jude Terror has been rocking out to this album on my commute to work all week long. Of course, I also owned a copy of the TMNT "Coming Out of Their Shells" live tour soundtrack in 1990, so maybe I'm not the best person to judge. In any case, check out the album on iTunes if you don't have a copy yet. Maybe if we buy enough, they'll release volume 2!
