The motorcyclists' answer to The Fast and the Furious, Biker Boyz features an appropriately testosterone- and adrenaline-driven soundtrack that focuses on hip-hop and nu-metal. Not surprisingly, most of the rap and hip-hop selections are hipper than the rock songs -- while the remix of P.O.D.'s "Boom" and Metallica's "We Did It Again" certainly bring the aggression, they're outclassed by tracks like JR Ewing's "Renegade," Swizz Beatz's "Ride Out," and Redman's "Ride." Likewise, Mos Def's "Kalifornia" and Non Phixion's "Say Goodbye to Yesterday" offer a refreshing dose of underground rap; the only track that comes close to them on the rock side is Papa Roach's "Don't Look Back." Keyshia Cole's "Get Up," and Mystic's "No Competition" further blur the lines between urban and hip-hop to a sultry, yet street-smart effect, while Me'Shell NdegéOcello's "Liliquoi Moon" and David Ryan Harris' "Don't Look Down" bring an urban edge to singer/songwriter-style ballads, resulting in the soundtrack's two prettiest moments. Overall, Biker Boyz not only delivers what's usually expected from a collection of music for this kind of movie, but offers some interesting twists, too, making it a consistent as well as a diverse soundtrack.
