ThereÆs a new battle in town thatÆs got the hottest teen stars of today rehearsing in their garage to compete in the biggest battle of the bands this season! BANDSLAM is set to premiere on August 26 in movie screens that comes with a soundtrack that truly embodies what battle of the bands should really stand for! The movie includes a fusion of music performed by both legends and new teen icons. Some of these legendary names include David Bowie, The Velvet Underground and many others. Accompanying them on the soundtrack are the hottest teen stars of today with the likes of Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical 3, Alyson Michalka of Phil of the Future and the newest boy group that recently signed to Hollywood Records, Honor Society who performed the movieÆs theme song, ôWhere Are You Nowö.

Vanessa Hudgens plays Sa5m (the 5 is silent), a loner who introduces Bandslam to the lead actor in the movie, Will, who initially committed to working with CharlotteÆs (Aly Michalka) band that was named I CanÆt Go On, IÆll Go On. Due to the untimely death of CharlotteÆs father, the band is left without a lead singer. Luckily, Will discovers Sa5mÆs talent through a childhood video tape that Sa5mÆs mother (Lisa Kudrow) shows him and Will finds their new lead singer in Vanessa Hudgens.

Besides the movieÆs theme song, Where Are You Now, much attention should also be brought to Vanessa HudgenÆs rendition of the Bread original, ôEverything I Ownö that becomes the competition piece of I CanÆt Go On, IÆll Go On in Bandslam. The song is given an upbeat reggae / ska feel that brings remakes to the next level. Another remake found in the soundtrack includes I Want You to Want Me which was originally done by Letters to Cleo. The song was also first featured in the teen flick movie, 10 Things I Hate About You.

Like any other romantic comedy flick, the soundtrack also includes a powerful ballad entitled Pretend that was sung by Ben (Scott Porter), the hot ex-boyfriend of Charlotte in the movie who is the lead singer of their rival band, Glory Dogs.

The original motion picture soundtrack of Bandslam is exclusively distributed by MCA Music Inc.
