The Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon has revealed its first soundtrack compilation and the film’s director doesn’t like it. While the first two episodes are set to premiere on September 26 on Disney X D, the soundtrack itself won’t come out until October 16 according to Marvel. This hasn’t stopped Marvel from revealing the full compilation–and since all the songs are from the 70s it doesn’t make one bit of sense to delay the soundtrack but whatevs.
Asked for his opinion on the soundtrack, the brilliant James Gunn who gave us the first movie tweeted his disappointment.
Not a big fan of this mix, no. https://t.co/afWX1iescU

Way back in episode 25 of the Gabbing Geek podcast, we each predicted two songs that would appear on the soundtrack for the second Guardians film. The good news? None of our songs are on this list that James Gunn doesn’t like. The bad news, for Jenny? “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey still won’t be on that soundtrack.
