The full track listing of classic bangers featured in the upcoming Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy game has been released, along with some fun music video action.

Obviously there’s a massive ’80s thing going on there, as there also is in the video of Zero to Hero, the second head-banging single from the game’s fictional Star-Lord band (the first was Space Riders with No Names).
If you dig the first vid below, go on to the second one, which features live performance footage in what is essentially a classic 12″ mix – with a whole lot of hair.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy launches for PS5, Xbox and PS4 on October 26. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
