Strap in Sonic Journey 2 sickos, the primary theme from the collection’ 3D platformer goes to be within the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 live-action film. Had been you nervous we’d get some horrible needle drop throughout a climactic second? Had been you mentally bracing your self to listen to Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero” as Sonic and his pals race to avoid wasting the world? Properly, that may nonetheless occur. However sooner or later, Japanese-American rock band Crush 40’s “Reside And Study” will play through the subsequent live-action film.

Rumors began circulating after a tease for the film was posted on February 2 that featured what seemed like an orchestral association of the tremendous tacky steel music. Sonic superfans/music lovers reached out to Crush 40 vocalist Johnny Gioeli to ask if the monitor may make an look within the movie itself. Then, screenshots of Gioeli seemingly confirming that the music can be featured in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 began to sprout up on social media. Impartial gaming and tradition website Aftermath then obtained an official touch upon the matter.

“I’ve certainly signed a take care of Paramount for music placement,” Gioeli informed Aftermath. “How they may use it’s strictly as much as them…Paramount now has the authorized proper to make use of ‘Reside and Study’ in any method they really feel mandatory.”


So there you have got it, people. “Reside and Study” can be within the upcoming film in some trend. It may play throughout an motion scene, be retooled into the score similar to the Green Hill Zone music within the first movie, or Paramount may slap it on the finish within the credit. Provided that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 seems to be incorporating numerous components from Sonic Journey 2 by specializing in antihero Shadow the Hedgehog, utilizing “Reside and Study” for a closing motion sequence can be an awesome tribute to the franchise’s historical past. Bear in mind the second movie’s dance battle scene set to “Uptown Funk?” I believed that was fairly cute, however much less of that transferring ahead, please.

Anyway, I’m off to rewatch the Sonic Symphony live performance during which Crush 40 carried out “Reside and Study,” and different songs they contributed to the franchise. I cried at that shit. “Reside and Study” isn’t even my favourite Sonic Crush 40 music (“Open Your Coronary heart” and “I Am…All of Me” supremacy), however I’ll cry when this music comes on through the film. I’m such a mark.


Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is about to premiere on December 20, and can convey again a number of solid members from the primary two motion pictures. This contains Jim Carrey as antagonist Dr. Robotnik, who was initially contemplating retirement after the second movie got here out in 2022.
