Additional music

Director Taika Waititi wanted the music to reflect the same aesthetic of the film with its "bombastic, loud, colorful palette". "Sweet Child o' Mine" by Guns N' Roses is featured in the film, given Guns N' Roses is one of Waititi's favorite bands, and helped "reflect the sort of crazy adventure that we're [visually] presenting";[4] the song was also used in the film's marketing.[5] Other songs featured in the film include: "Only Time" by Enya; "Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City", and "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses; "Fighting" by Michael Raphael; "Our Last Summer" by ABBA; "Family Affair" by Mary J. Blige; "Goodies" by Ciara featuring Petey Pablo; and "Rainbow in the Dark" by Dio. Also included is the "Old Spice Sea Chanty" by Ginger Johnson and an original song, "Hey Ninny-Nonny", performed by Waititi.[6]
