Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3: 12 Songs That Must Be On Awesome Mix Vol. 3

12. The Animals – We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place (1965)

One of the most memorable moments in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes when an epic space chase ensues between Sovereign’s fleet of drones and the Guardians craft.

Silver’s jovial Wham Bang Shang-a-Lang is the matchstick to the climatic action scene, with every ‘wham’, ‘bam’ and ‘shang-a-lang’ precisely punctuating the on-screen bursts, bangs and blasts.

Assuming the Guardians will uphold their position as the undefeated underdogs of the galaxy, The Animals’ We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place could be used as a way of highlighting the long odds they face in their quest to protect the universe from all impending threats.

Rather them than us, eh?
