Spoiler Alert: Michael Bay’s new Netflix movie ‘6 Underground’ does not feature Sneaker Pimps

Which one these groups are a trip hop band?

A couple months ago Netflix announced they’d be releasing a new action film from incoherent mayhem auteur Michael Bay titled 6 Underground and starring Ryan Reynolds. Since then I’ve been wondering, like the rest of the world, is this movie based on trip hop band Sneaker Pimps‘ 1996 single of the same name?

“6 Underground” the song, with its laid back beats, had already been used in another incoherent action film — the Val Kilmer-starring 1997 big screen adaptation of ’60s spy series The Saint — so maybe Bay’s film would incorporate that too? Sadly, no. This film is about a tech billionaire (Reynolds) who fakes his own death and then recruits a team of international operatives for “a bold and bloody mission to take down a brutal dictator.” But maybe it would still use the song?

The movie hit Netflix today and, spoiler alert, no it does not! Skipping straight to the end credits, there are songs by Muse (who are basically the Michael Bay Movie of rock bands), The Spice Girls, The Score, Armin Van Buuren, Maribou State, Snoh Allegra ft Vince Staples, and Bishop Briggs, but no Sneaker Pimps.  No trip hop of any kind on the soundtrack at all. It seems wrong. Maybe the sequel will rectify this. If you wanna fix this yourself, you could just turn down the bombastic music that plays over the end credits of the film and play your CD single of “6 Underground” instead. Or you can just watch the video for Sneaker Pimps’ “6 Underground,” below
