MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

Monster Moves: Rock On!
When Mike and Sulley find themselves in the midst of a fraternity party, filmmakers wanted to showcase their monster moves -- but first they needed the music. Enter Axwell & Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia with a party song called "Roar" -- of course -- featuring an upbeat electronic dance sound that even monsters could appreciate. "We wanted to keep it funny, funky and at the same time a bit cool with a hint of monsters in it," says Axwell.

Scanlon approves. "It's really a fun song. I remember watching the animator work on this scene. As he played back the song, the artist at the next desk -- who wasn't even working on the movie -- couldn't help moving his feet. Obviously, that guy had been hearing that song for days, but yet the second he heard it, he just had to move his feet."

Faced with the question of what a sweet monster might listen to during a free moment, filmmakers decided to push the envelope. "There is a great moment in 'Monsters University' when we thought it would be funny if the tunes were some of the most intense heavy metal imaginable. Mastodon was the obvious choice. They show off an unexpected monstrous side for one of our great new characters."

They chose an existing song from the group called "Island."

The "Monsters University" soundtrack, set for release from Walt Disney Records on June 18, 2013, is available for pre-order at http://smarturl.it/musAmazona1. On June 4, the label will release the "Roar" digital single, plus remixes by Style of Eye and Yogi.
