As if there wasn’t enough to look forward to with the upcoming Spiderman 3Topher Grace, a more realistically complex Spiderman character — Record Collector has announced the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of indie fare. In addition to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wolfmother and the Walkmen, there’s the awesomely titled "Spiderman vs. Muhammad Ali" by the Flaming Lips. All songs are "new and exclusive" to the soundtrack according to the Record Collector site, though Chubby Checker’s 1960 hit "The Twist" is included. In keeping with the indie-fying of the soundtrack, maybe Checker’s song underwent a DFA remix, available only on 180 gram vinyl.

This isn’t the first time the indie cognoscenti have rallied around Spiderman — punk forefathers the Ramonesrecorded a version of the theme song.
