When you take your kids to see “Monsters University” this weekend, keep an ear peeled for a Mastodon track.
We told you back in December this was happening. Because we rule.
But yes, the new animated feature boasts the track “Island,” a tune from their 2004 release Leviathan.
The film’s director Dan Scanlon said: “There is a great moment in ‘Monsters University’ when we thought it would be funny if the tunes were some of the most intense heavy metal imaginable.
“Mastodon was the obvious choice,” Scanlon offers.
“They show off an unexpected monstrous side for one of our great new characters,” explained the director.
The song is not on the movie’s official soundtrack, however. Lame sauce.
“Monsters University” hits big screens around the world Friday.
