All The Songs In ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ Including Devo, Cypress Hill, Foo Fighters & More

All The Songs In 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Including Devo, Cypress Hill, Foo Fighters & More

“The main thing about Marty’s use of music is he’s fearless, creatively fearless,” music supervisor Randall Poster recently told THR about working on “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and he’s certainly not kidding. While the official soundtrack release for the film features 16 songs, that’s a mere drop in the water of the nearly 60 tunes licensed for the movie. As you might expect, the nearly three hour epic is packed with music with nary a frame going by without a song to go with it. And below we have a taste of just how wide-reaching the music goes and some of the key cuts that are missing from the store bought soundtrack.

Perhaps most notably, Foo Fighters‘ “Everlong” backs a key sequence in the film while hip hop cuts by Cypress Hill, Sir Mix A Lot and Naughty By Nature are also pretty prominent. And while Ahmad Jamal gets one cut on the official soundtrack, there are actually a handful of tunes by the jazz legend, while the same goes for blues icon Bo Diddley. And from disco to ska to dance tunes to indie rock, “The Wolf Of Wall Street” brings it all (smothered in cocaine).

Check out the full list of songs below with samples on the following pages.

The music was great throughout.. however, the use of Foo Fighters really really seemed misplaced. I cringe when that part approaches.

Who sang "The Cold Song" it's the scene just before Jordin meets Naom while out in the Hamptons. The guys are playing pool and DiCaprio is explaining the effects of Ludes when the song comes on. Classic ! Whoever produced the sound tracks and tied them into the scenes did an amazing job. The movie is an instant classic and Scorsese is a masterful genius especially with Dicaprio. They make a great team. Glad these guys pushed to make the movie.

Although a lot of people we're affected by fraud it gives us insight to what goes on inside corp America and don't think the big Investment Co's don't do this type of shit, they just have big lawyers, lobbyists and politicians in their pockets … Little Stratton on LI didn't have the pull and became a target. I haven't seen any big bankers orWalll Steet guys do any time after 2008. But this is life my friends. Let's live and learn.. Oh and enjoy the movies too. Why not and WTF, right?


Hi.what is the name of the song at 56 min when naomi siad "we're not gonna be friends and at 60 min when they are in the car?
