I just got my Clerks soundtrack ( I bought it used for like $5 at this great local store; not much expendable cash, and I don't believe in Napster). Anyway, a GREAT CD. A nice eclectic mix of alternative/indie/mainstream. It was also cool how it was in chronological order; I can replay the movie in my head while I listen to it.

I was just wondering why Soul Asylum's song got the video treatment. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a great song, but I think the Alice in Chains song "Got Me Wrong" was the real stand out of the album and deserved the video. Plus, I would think they would have been a bigger band than Soul Asylum in 1994.

Did it have to do with the willingness of the bands? Clearance issues? A preference of Kevin or some execs? Something else?

Does anyone agree/disagree with me?

Also, what did you do to get clearance for these songs in a no budget indie flick? How much does that cost and what's the procedure?

Thanks for the tunes
