Though his alter ego may prefer Black Sabbath, Tony Stark will once again be rocking to the sounds of AC/DC in Iron Man 2.

The veteran Aussie rockers, whose “Back in Black” was the leadoff song in the first Iron Man flick, will not only contribute music to the Marvel Studios sequel, but will also release the album AC/DC: Iron Man 2 on April 19. It will feature 15 AC/DC classics culled from 10 of the band’s studio albums. On a personal note, I’m very happy to report my favorite AC/DC hit, “Have a Drink on Me”, made the cut.

Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash doing battle to the heavy metal sound of AC/DC? Sounds like a perfect match to me. Hit the jump for a full track listing, details on the CD release and the first video from AC/DC: Iron Man 2, “Shoot to Thrill.”

Iron Man 2 hits theaters on May 7th.

I’m no music expert what with their fancy degrees and ability to appreciate music beyond “This sounds good.”  But I do know lists and lists generate controversy and controversy equals traffic!  And with their patented “slideshow” format which creates more hits based on an itemized story, EW.com has a real racket going!

Well, we just listed it like normal people after the jump.  Take a look, see if you agree, and scream your disbelief at how a certain album you love wasn’t included.  Also, remember that this is a list of soundtracks which are usually a collection of songs used in a movie as opposed to a score which is usually the instrumental accompaniment to the film created by a single composer (although there are obviously scores created by more than one composer).
