The music in a film or TV show can often make or break the final product as the songs used can add just the right feeling to each scene or a certain character.

For HBO Max’s new release, Peacemaker, music certainly plays a key role, from the unexpected opening credits dance number to the head-banging rock ‘n’ roll tracks throughout.

But just which songs feature in the Peacemaker soundtrack?

Peacemaker release date and plot

Peacemaker exploded its way onto HBO Max in the US on Thursday, January 13th, 2022.

Written and mostly directed by James Gunn, the series continues the story of Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker, following his near-death experience during the events of The Suicide Squad.

With his pet eagle back at his side, Peacemaker is recruited for a new mission dubbed project butterfly which sees John Cena’s anti-hero come face to face with more metahumans and even potentially aliens.

As with almost every James Gunn-led project, music is key throughout Peacemaker as it helps to underscore the action while also giving us hints about the personality of certain characters.

It should come as little surprise, therefore, that Peacemaker’s soundtrack is full of loud and lairy rock ‘n’ roll, but just which songs are used in each episode?
