Heavy metal has once again has made it's way into a family film to "corrupt society". Mastodon's song "Island", which comes from their 2004 release 'Leviathan', will appear in the new Disney's Pixar movie Monsters University. The song didn't make the official soundtrack cut, but it will be featured in a scene that the film director’s Dan Scanlon explains here:

“There is a great moment in 'Monsters University' when we thought it would be funny if the tunes were some of the most intense heavy metal imaginable. Mastodon was the obvious choice. They show off an unexpected monstrous side for one of our great new characters.”
