Cameron Crowe’s ‘We Bought a Zoo’ features songs from Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Temple of the Dog and more

Cameron Crowe has been on grunge rockers’ minds as of late, as the film director is the brains behind “Pearl Jam Twenty,” the recently released Pearl Jam documentary celebrating the past 20 years of the Seattle innovators.

Crowe’s latest film endeavor is, “We Bought a Zoo,” which is in theaters now. For the film’s soundtrack, Crowe recruited several big names, among them, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready! McCready contributes three songs to the soundtrack: “Last Medicine Dance,” “Ashley Collective” and “Throwing Arrows.” Other contributors include Chicago-based alternative country-rock band Wilco, who lends their song “Airline to Heaven” to the collection, and nostalgic Seattle grunge supergroup Temple of the Dog, whose famed “Hunger Strike” ballad appears on the set. Find the full track listing, below.

Note: While the official CD release of the movie soundtrack only includes music by Jón Þór “Jónsi,” Birgisson and Sigur Rós, the full soundtrack of the film includes the below artists.
