Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series isn't the happiest set of books filling the YA section of your local bookstore. The newly released track list for the second film in the series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire , shows that living in a post-apocolyptic dystopia is probably a tad depressing. The soundtrack showcases the perfect mix of tracks to bob your head to while watching children murder other children in brutal combat. (But It’s also a love Story!) So what tunes are the denizens of The Capitol listening to?

We’ve already heard the haunting "Atlas" by Coldplay, which will serve as the film's official theme. The soundtrack contains a bevy of eclectic musical talent including tortured R&B crooner The Weeknd, equally tourtured indie rockers The National, also tortured pop star Lorde (I'm sensing a pattern here), and Christina Aguilera. It seems like the music of the film will be honing in on themes such as teenaged angst, loneliness, and what it's like to be a genie in a bottle.
