One of the most popular aspects of the Guardians of the Galaxy films have been the soundtracks and many of the songs used in Vol. 2 were just as important to developing the film’s themes as the story and characters. Now, Marvel Music, UMC, and Hollywood Records have announced release dates for the vinyl and cassette versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 soundtrack.
The cassette version of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 will be available on June 23rd and can be pre-ordered here.
The vinyl version of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 will be available as a special deluxe edition that will also include the film’s score by Tyler Bates and can be pre-ordered here.

10 Tracks We Would Like To See On The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Mixtape
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the sequel to the MCU’s surprise hit, is already certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Given how popular the first film has been, and how excited everyone is for these characters to return, it’s no surprise that a third movie is already in development and will kick off the next phase for the MCU (even though it technically might not be “Phase 4”).
One of the best and freshest things about the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is the soundtrack each movie has. The first “Awesome Mix” gave the film a unique sound that helped set the tone for the film. Such classic songs like “Hooked On A Feeling,” “Cherry Bomb,” “I Want You Back,” and “Come and Get Your Love” helped make the soundtrack number one on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was platinum-selling. It’s a no-brainer that the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be just as diverse and full of hits as the first soundtrack.
With a third movie commissioned, what songs should show up for the next film? For one, Peter Quill no longer has any more Awesome Mixtapes left to him by his mother. It’s assumed that either in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 or in Avengers: Infinity War, the Guardians will make their way to Earth. So, Quill will have to get himself some new tunes. Considering tapes are no longer the player of choice in our digital age, Star-Lord will probably have to get himself a digital music player. But what songs could show up on the next soundtrack? He is a child of the 80s, and his mother loves 70s classics, so don’t expect him to listen to any Lada Gaga or Trap music. Here are a few songs that could end up on the Awesome Mix Vol. 3.
