After the playlist I had created for The Bone Clocks (which you can listen here) I've been wanting to make a new one. Battle Royale offered me another chance to share with you all the song mentioned in the novel. Shuya, one of the main characters, is into rock music which is a forbidden genre for the fictional country he lives. All the song are mostly classics, well-known and beloved. It's a smaller playlist than the previous one, but nonetheless enjoyable.
As in The Bone Clocks, some artists were just mentioned by their name and not a particular song. In those cases, I simply chose one that I like. In this particular playlist are the songs by The Blues Brothers and Lou Reed.
Born to Run is an extremely important song for this book, so I would advise taking a good listen to it especially if you are interested in reading it!
