Around ten years ago, on Nov. 21, 2008, Twilight debuted in theaters. The film introduced us to one of the biggest cultural phenomena the world had ever seen, and went on to indubitably reshape entertainment.
The (eventually) multi-billion dollar franchise launched the careers of many of our favorite actors -- and bands, as the vampire love story also played a crucial role when it came to the importance of music in film.
The Twilight: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featured a variety of talents that perfectly captured the essence and mood of the plot. With its authentic selection of tracks, including a handful of originals from bands like Paramore, the film more or less treated the music as a character. Indeed, the soundtrack debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, positioning future Twilight films as a place where an artist could foster a smash hit.
