The National are now streaming their contribution to the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The track, entitled 'Lean', was originally called 'Dying Is Easy' until the band were forced to change the title after it was deemed too dark.

You can check it out here: http://soundcloud.com/universalrepublic/the-national-lean-the-hunger?in=universalrepublic/sets/the-hunger-games-catching-fire

The soundtrack comes out in its entirety on November 19th.

The series originated as a novel about kids being forced to kill other kids and the title of a song is too dark.

The "dying is easy" melody around that part sounds similar to the one at "Am I the one you think about when you're sitting in your faintin' chair drinking pink rabbits?"

I like the books but the writing was pretty mediocre, and the third book basically sucked. I enjoyed the movie though because Jennifer Lawrence.

Battle royal is the better story, but god I remember having a teacher my freshmen year who literally forced us to read the hunger games because she thought it was like the citizen Kane of new age literature.

I'm always confused when people treat the series as anything more than a half decent children's (/"young adult's") book series

I like it, but it's basically an alternate version of "Pink Rabbits." I don't want to hold that against The National, so I'm just gonna pretend it didn't happen.

@30seconds, She's average looking. That being said, she's also not that good of an actress and the Oscars don't mean shit.

actually, the Oscars are like the only award show around anymore that matters. it seems like they're the only ones that actually care about quality. 99% of the time, movies that win Oscars are better than movies that don't. did you see Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook? fucking incredible acting. how can you possibly deny that.

also the first hunger games movie wasn't bad at all. people just like to rebel i guess

the first twenty minutes of the first hunger games was pretty good. sucked after that, unfortunately.

Song's pretty good, not top-tier national, tho.
