Title - 'Whip It' (OST)
Artist - Various

'Whip It' suggests what might have happened if Juno had gone to a high school as poky as Napoleon Dynamite's and decided that although her mother wanted her to be a beauty queen like Little Miss Sunshine, she'd rather just strap on roller skates!

Only here the petite, droll, feisty, Ellen Page-like heroine played by Ellen Page is named Bliss. And her idea of sass while chatting up a cute rocker (Landon Pigg) in this desexualized, slow-speed grrrl-power sports fantasy is, "I'm Bliss, but I could change that."

As for the music, well, it is '70s underground fantastic! The music from an excellent movie (based on a great book!) can sometimes pale in comparison, but not here - thankfully.

Indeed, the girl-power-meets-punk-rock spirit of the music featured in 'Whip It' plays an integral role in telling the story, from setting the film's rebellious tone to celebrating the characters' wild individuality. The soundtrack's 19 songs reflect the film's outsider ethos with music from underground artists, including Belgian electro-rockers Goose ('Black Gloves'), Mercury Prize nominees The Go! Team ('Doing It Right'), L.A. beat-punks The Ettes ('Crown Of Age'), Rolling Stone Artist To Watch Apollo Sunshine ('Breeze'), Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman, and Nebraska indie-pop quintet Tilly and the Wall ('Pot Kettle Black').[CdM]
