“It’s a badge of honor, to be honest,” Tyler Bates told Billboard’s Frank DiGiacomo. The film composer, known for his work on the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and JOHN WICK franchises, DAWN OF THE DEAD, 300 and SUCKER PUNCH – and also a producer, guitarist and writer on the last two Marilyn Manson records – is referring to the distinction of having created the first ever all-music film score to carry a parental warning sticker, for DEADPOOL 2.
Bates told Billboard that the lyrics came about “very spontaneously – they weren’t planned even an hour before they [were recorded]” – when the film’s director David Leitch visited the studio during the recording session.
Initially, the choir had been given “faux Latinesque language so that they hit all of the percussive marks,” Bates explains. But when Leitch walked in on the session, Bates says, “I told him, if you’re inspired, we can always substitute what they’re currently singing with some subtext from the movie.” While the choir took a break, Leitch wrote lyrics, and an R-rated classical music piece was born.
