What Songs Appear on the "The Matrix Reloaded: The Album" Soundtrack?

Featuring Linkin Park, Rob Zombie, and Rage Against the Machine

Matrix Reloaded Soundtrack
Maverick Records

The soundtrack to the second film of The Matrix franchise, The Matrix Reloaded was released by Warner Bros. / Maverick Records on April 29, 2003, about three weeks before the highly-anticipated sequel was released. It features tracks from contemporary rock artists including P.O.D., Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and Deftones. P.O.D. wrote their song "Sleeping Awake" specifically for The Matrix Reloaded, which was the only single released from the soundtrack.

After the huge box office success of The Matrix in 1999, many artists submitted music to be included on the two-disc soundtrack of the sure-to-be-hit sequel film. Other contributors to The Matrix Reloaded: The Album soundtrack include Fluke, Juno Reactor, Paul Oakenfold and Team Sleep (the side band of Deftones leader Chino Moreno). Linkin Park's instrumental "Session" also appears on the album. Music by Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Rage Against the Machine, and Rob Dougan also appeared on the soundtrack of the original film.

The second disc of The Matrix Reloaded: The Album soundtrack features excerpts from the film's score, which was mostly composed by Don Davis. Davis previously worked with the Wachowskis on Bound and The Matrix, and is also known for composing the music for other films like Jurassic Park III and Behind Enemy Lines.

The Matrix Reloaded: The Album reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Movie Soundtracks Chart.

It was also certified Gold by the RIAA for selling 500,000 copies. The "Sleeping Awake" singleĀ  by P.O.D. peaked at #14 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks Chart, #20 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart, and #42 on the UK Singles Chart.
