Additional soundtrack info
The trailer contains three Swedish rock songs: "Cherokee" and "The Final Countdown" by Europe and The Hives' "See Through Head." Also featured in the trailers are "The Art of Losing" by American Hi-Fi and "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC.

Trivia
There are 8 songs by the '80s band Europe in the film: "Danger on the Track," "On the Loose," "Rock the Night," "Love Chaser," "Ninja," "Cherokee," "Heart of Stone" and "Time Has Come." In addition to this, "The Final Countdown" is featured in the trailer. Hot Rod actor Will Arnett was on a short-lived (but critically acclaimed show) show "Arrested Development," in which his character (who was a magician) would always perform magic to the song "The Final Countdown" by Europe.

The band that performs before the $50,000 stunt is Queens of the Stone Age in alternate, 1980s-looking costumes.
