The phenomenally successful "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols", the only studio album by the English punk rock group Sex Pistols., released on 28 October 1977 by Virgin Records. At the time of its release, the band was already extremely controversial, having sworn on live TV, been fired from two record labels, and been banned from playing live in most parts of England.

Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground, alongside bands such as Vader, Decapitated, Vesania and Hate. Over the years Behemoth has moved from traditional black metal into blackened death metal and then into modern death metal with each consecutive release. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content, but soon changed to that of occult and thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences.

The album was re-released again in 2006, with the European version of the artwork.
Hans Zimmer is known almost exclusively for his larger-than-life action scores, so give him credit for stepping outside of his comfort zone and co-writing with Graham Preskett the country music-inspired romantic comedy effort Something to Talk About. That's all the credit due Zimmer here, however. The score is an absolute snoozer. Its gratingly folksy approach is both forced and awkward, and the melodies are all far too similar to captivate the listener's imagination.
