Weezer – “Beginning Of The End (Wyld Stallyns Edit)”
The long-awaited Bill & Ted sequel Bill & Ted Face The Music is being released on 8/28 via video-on-demand and, logically, the movie is getting an accompanying soundtrack, which will be out on the same day. It features new songs from Mastodon, FIDLAR, Lamb Of God, and more. (Not included is Glass Beach’s “Running,” a song that the band said was originally written for the movie’s soundtrack.)
Today, Weezer are releasing their contribution to the soundtrack, “Beginning Of The End,” a song that’s also expected to appear on their forthcoming (but delayed) new album Van Weezer. The version that is included on the Bill & Ted soundtrack is an edit by Wyld Stallyns, the fictional band fronted by the characters portrayed by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter.
Billy Joel has a writing credit on the song, though it doesn’t appear he actually had a hand in the track. On his recently launched online chatroom Riverchat, Rivers Cuomo said: “Just a clearance thing. Very common in recent years. I don’t think Billy Joel’s written a song since the 90s.”
