Music From The Motion Picture, The Hulk, To Be Released On Decca/UMG Soundtracks
This is from the Hulk soundtrack press release:


The soundtrack for the highly anticipated film, The Hulk, will be released on Decca/UMG Soundtracks June 17, 2003.

Scoring the original soundtrack is famed composer, Danny Elfman, whose unmistakable music has been featured in several blockbuster movies, including Spider-Man, Batman and Men In Black II. The soundtrack also includes a new exclusive track, "Set Me Free," which was inspired by the film and recorded by an all-new super group featuring Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots; vocals), Slash (Guns N' Roses; guitar), Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses; bass), Matt Sorum (Guns N' Roses; drums) and Dave Kushner (Suicidal Tendencies; guitar). This is the first-ever commercially available track from this new hard rock mega-group and can be downloaded exclusively on Apple's iTunes Music Store from June 8, 2003 through June 17, 2003.

The currently unnamed band was invited by director Ang Lee to see an early cut of the film, which inspired them to write a powerful song that would match the movie in both theme and intensity. Slash commented, "Writing songs is really cool, but if you get inspired to do it for a really good movie, the outcome is more fulfilling. We got a certain energy from watching the film, and we wanted to do something that would be really appropriate for it. The Hulk is a very dramatic version of the same stuff that we all go through. All this bottled-up tension is what the song's about, so it's a pretty good marriage: the theme of the song and what The Hulk is all about."

Added Scott Weiland, "Ang Lee had a lot of intensity about the movie and his art form." He met with the band following their screening and provided some additional ideas and inspiration for lyrics that would closely reflect the story of Bruce Banner and his struggle with his monstrous alter-ego, The Hulk.
