Hoobastank, Jet, Yellowcard Spin Songs For 'Spider-Man 2' Soundtrack

Jet, Hoobastank, Yellowcard and Lostprophets lead the crop of bands already on board for the album, due June 22, according to a Columbia Records spokesperson. Tracks by Train and Dashboard Confessional will serve as the LP’s two singles, set for a simultaneous release at an unspecified date. Videos for the songs are also expected to surface at the same time.

Yellowcard are especially excited to have a song on the soundtrack, since frontman Ryan Key has not only claimed to have had Spider-Man sheets and footy pajamas as a child, but now sports a swinging Spidey tattoo on his shoulder.

Midtown, the Ataris and Taking Back Sunday round out the list of confirmed artists. Additions are expected, and a full track list will be available shortly.

Like its sequel, the soundtrack to the original “Spider-Man” flick boasted two singles: Corey Taylor’s “Bother,” and “Hero” by Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and Saliva’s Josey Scott. Released in April 2002, the album sold more than 1 million copies.

“Spider-Man 2” is set to hit theaters June 30.
