‘Westworld’ Releases Soundtrack with Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden Covers

HBO’s latest hit show Westworld released the unique soundtrack from its first season, which finds composer Ramin Djawadi reimagining tunes from the likes of Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure and many others to complement the show’s storyline.

Djawadi used numerous Radiohead songs this season, including “Motion Picture Soundtrack,” “Fake Plastic Trees” and “Exit Music (For a Film)” during the final moments of the season. In speaking to Pitchfork, Djawadi pegged himself as a fan of the band along with the show’s creators.

“They’re just an incredible band,” Djwadi said. “I’m happy [Jonathan Nolan’s] picking these songs.” He added, “While I’m not even that big into lyrics, their lyrics tend to be very poetic as well. I think it’s a great fit.”
