Fear Street 2 Soundtrack – Every Song In 1978
Fear Street Part 2: 1978’s soundtrack features songs from David Bowie, Kansas, Velvet Underground and more classic artists of the era.
Fear Street Part 2: 1978 is full of bloody ax murders and nefarious witchcraft, but at least the soundtrack rocks! Featuring 1970s classics from Blue Oyster Cult, Kansas, Velvet Underground, David Bowie and more, Fear Street Part 2 continues the story of the cursed town of Shadyside by delving further into its past.
Netflix’s trilogy of Fear street movies, based on the teen horror books by RL Stine, kicked off with Fear Street Part 1: 1994. In the first movie of the trilogy, Shadyside teen Deena and her brother Josh tried to save Deena’s girlfriend, Sam, from the vengeful curse of 17th century witch Sarah Fier. In Fear Street Part 2: 1978, Deena and Josh seek advice from C. Berman, a Shadysider who saw the witch during a massacre at Camp Nightwing 16 years ago, and lived to tell the tale.

Just as Fear Street Part 1: 1994 features a soundtrack full of classic ’90s hits, Fear Street Part 2: 1978‘s songs are mainly taken from the time period in which the movie is set. There are returning tracks like Ruby Lane’s chilling lullaby of death, “You Always Hurt the Ones You Love,” as well as the original Velvet Underground version of “Sweet Jane” (a cover by Cowboy Junkies appeared on 1994’s soundtrack).
Two of the tracks in Fear Street Part 2 repeat: “Cherry Bomb,” which plays during an early scene and again at the end of the movie, and “Carry On Wayward Song,” which plays over Camp Nightwing’s tannoy system as the Color War begins, and then again at a crucial point during the massacre.
