Cee-Lo, Panic! At The Disco, All-American Rejects, Fall Out Boy, Michael Franti & Spearhead and Coheed & Cambria have offered up new or remixed tracks for the soundtrack to the upcoming film "Snakes on a Plane." Due Aug. 15 via New Line, the album also features a pseudo movie theme song by Cobra Starship, staffed by members of the Academy Is..., Midtown, the Sounds and Gym Class Heroes.

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, "Snakes" star Samuel L. Jackson joins Cobra Starship and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz in the video for "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)," in which the artists smuggle the snakes onto the plane via their luggage and instrument cases.

"Snakes on a Plane" opens Aug. 18 in U.S. theaters.
