"Derezzed" is the 13th track on the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack, following End of Line and preceding Fall. It was the first full Tron: Legacy song released to the public, released as a single on October 26, 2010. It has two music videos- the promotional video for Tron: Legacy, showcasing the song over clips from the movie, and the official Daft Punk video, released later. The song is used in a couple of Tron: Legacy commercials, including a Coca-Cola ad appearing in movie theaters. The song has also become popular to play on sports channels and in stadiums.
Appearance in the film[edit | edit source]
The song plays at the End of Line Club, in which Daft Punk are the DJs, when Castor turns against Flynn and a fight starts. The song immediately stops when Kevin appears and shuts the power off for a moment, and then the song is changed to Fall.
Naming[edit | edit source]
The song is named after the term "Derezzed", a euphemism for death in the Tron world.
Music videos[edit | edit source]
"Derezzed" debut came with a promotional video for the movie, which featured various clips, including the first look at Daft Punk's cameo in the film.
Daft Punk enters Flynn's Arcade and begins playing a game developed by Encom named Derezzed, with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo playing as Prog 1 and Thomas Bangalter as Prog 2. Derezzed plays out as a light cycle jousting game in the grid. While an unknown program watches the light cycle joust in the distance, Prog 2 wins the match. In the arcade, de Homem-Christo is disappointed. Back in the grid, Prog 2 is revealed to be Quorra (played by Olivia Wilde).The video was directed by Warren Fu.
Reconfigured[edit | edit source]
Derezzed is remixed twice on Tron: Legacy RECONFIGURED, by The Glitch Mob and Avicii.
