Ya I need to find about 8 to 10 songs that relate to this book. For anyone who hasn't read it. Heres a link to the basic plot to the story

link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Outsiders_%28novel%29)

I would be very thankful for any help. And by the way I already have I Cum Blood so don't worry about that one.

Well there's a song called The Outsider by A Perfect Circle.


I doubt it's about the book, but it's a f*cking awesome song.



edit: I Cum Blood is about the Oustiders?!

Mad World - Gary Jules

If you played that when Johnny died, it would be the single biggest cry moment in the history of the world.

Bohemian Rhapsody, just to be awesome like that.

I guess it could fit in there somehow... I just don't want to take the tie to type it.

War All The Time - Thursday. It's more about society being torn apart than about war.

theres a bury your dead song called the outsiders. it is a reference to the movie though. their whole cd's song titles are tom cruse movies.

I love that book.

Maybe "18 and Life - Skid Row". It's about life on the street.

wait, how are these songs being used

i second mad world for sure. and bohemian rhapsody, it could fit in somewhere as an uplifting part to contrast the depressing mad world song.
