The entire movie featured music of the era, especially that music from the politically tumultuous Berlin music scene, playing the original tracks from Depeche Mode, Bowie and Queen, Kaledia, the Cure, Blondie, Ministry, Led Zepplin, Siouxsie and the Banshees.... the list goes on.
Why diss just New Order, and use a cover track for that... which is even the movie's title track?
I've Googled. No mention why New Order got snubbed. Can't say it's because they aren't playing, because they just dropped a new album this year, NOMC15. That, and al the rest of the music is vintage cuts anyway.
Great movie by the way.
Why did "Health" cover "Blue Monday" for the title track of "Atomic Blonde"?
