If it was a song that kinda started out with drums and then a bass line came up, and then jack black sees the kids outside and says, "no way, that is so punk rock" it probably wasn't ac/dc, it sounded more like an old punk band. It was probably The Ramones.

I saw this movie last night (6-22-07). I'm pretty sure I know this song - and it IS NOT on either soundtrack. I just don't know where it came on in the movie. I think it was after the 'That is so punk rock!' quote, because I missed the early part of the movie.

It's the beginning of a cover of the Killing Joke song 'The Wait' by Metallica, before James Hetfield starts singing. (see the 'songs in movie credits' post - in this thread) It's found on either 'Garage, Inc' or 'Garage Days Re-Revisited EP', which are recordings (made soon after Jason Newsted joined the band) where they cover some of their favorite songs.

Even if you heard James Hetfield's voice, it sounds like it went through some kind of phaser effect, so you'd still be like 'Huh?'. The guitar still might be enough of a clue.

I've only heard snippets of the Killing Joke original...which seems somewhat metal/new wavish.

It's rather surprising that Led Zeppelin let 'The Immigrant Song' both in the movie AND the soundtrack. Who knows what Metallica was thinking with the decision NOT to have it on the soundtrack, though there could have been due to the CD time limit...

I don't know about the Clash song suggestions -- I'm familiar with those songs, but don't remember hearing them (since I missed part of the movie).

Twist of fate

Maybe it's not important enough?
