Default Anyone else tired of overplayed songs used in movies?

They used to GNR's Welcome To The Jungle in Jumanji 2: Welcome To The Jungle, ACDC's Back In Black in Death Wish remake, and mostly recently Nirvana's version of Lake of Fire in Tag, and Nancy Sinatra's These Boots Are Made For Walking in Ocean's 8.

Whenever I hear overplayed songs used in movies, I just get a bad feeling in the stomach. Just lazy writing IMO. Or these film makers have really generic taste...

Let's not forget All Along The Watchtower, the Official Song of the Vietnam War.
There are 2 kinds of J-Pop: Shiina Ringo, and everyone else.

Osiris12345 deserves a fucking medal

Songs that should be banned from ever appearing in another movie again:

1. "Born to be Wild" by Steppenwolf
2. "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood & The Destroyers
3. "Back in Black" by AC/DC
4. "Stayin' Alive" by The Bee Gees
5. "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff
6. "Low Rider" by War
7. "Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel
8. "Theme from 'Jaws'" by John Williams
9. "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett
10. "Fortunate Son" by Creedance Clearwater Revival
To not know is a form of knowing.

What ever happened to non-musical films having a completely original score?
