So Canadian synth-rockers Metric's music will stand in for... The Clash At Demonhead in Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" live-action, graphic novel adaptation as we've guessed all along?
Well, according to our buddies in the L.A. Times who spoke to Metric, their music — an unreleased track called “Black Sheep” — will stand in for some band in 'Scott Pilgrim' they just don't say who.
...the picture stars Michael Cera as a budding rock 'n’ roll bassist, and [the] unreleased Metric song “Black Sheep” will represent one of the bands in the film. Haines says the song would have been released on Fantasies had Wright not approached the group. “There was a debate as to whether or not it should go on the record. The guys [in the band] didn’t know what I was talking about in it, and I couldn’t really tell them. It has images of things in space -- real estate in space. It’s some of the more esoteric lyrics I’ve written, which totally worked for Edgar’s movie.”The lyrics don't reveal that much —"Hello again, friend of a friend/I knew you when/I come and go/Was waiting for the world to end/Now that the truth is just a rule that we can bend/You change the trick/Shape-shift and trick/The past again" — but the Clash at Demonhead are the only band in the 'Scott Pilgrim' graphic novels that is fronted by a female just like Metric, who also plays and sings keyboards... just like Metric (and there's basically only two bands in the Scott Pilgrim story, The Clash At Demonhead and Cera's band Sex Bob-omb, though in the script, evil boyfriends #5 and #6 Kyle & Ken Katayanagi are sort of a band).
Song removed by request of the producers.
As you'll recall, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" is the story of a Canadian slacker (Scott Pilgrim played by Michael Cera) who must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart — she is Ramona Flowers (as played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead). The film is expected to hit theaters in the summer of 2010.
