Analyzing The ‘Suicide Squad’ Soundtrack: Which Song Represents…

One of the most celebrated aspects of this summer’s Suicide Squad came from the film’s soundtrack. From songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Ballroom Blitz featuring in the trailers to the original songs for the film by artists like Wiz Khalifa and Imagine Dragons, Suicide Squad‘s soundtrack had a little something for everyone. Despite what you think about the movie as a whole, you have to admit, the soundtrack was impressive.

Something interesting you may have noticed about the soundtrack is that each song seems to represent a different villain from the Squad. When the members of the team were first shown during the film, different songs were used to introduce their respective characters. Aside from Katana, Rick Flag, and the Enchantress, all the characters had their own “theme song” that goes along with their personality.

I’ve gone ahead and matched each character up with their theme song, and broken down why I think that the particular song works so well for its respective character. Some songs have a perfect melody for the character, some songs have the perfect lyrics, and some are a combination of both.

So sit back, relax, click “next”, and take a look at our gallery of Suicide Squad characters and which songs from the soundtrack represent them!
