What is The Misfits?

The Misfits is a British TV Show that has just finished it's Second Season. The soundtrack and music from the show contains a really great collection of songs.

The show itself is an original and fresh take on the super power genre. Personally I think it is brilliant, but whenever I try to tell people about it they say, "Oh, so it's like Heroes then?". No. It's nothing like Heroes. Comparing it to Heroes is like comparing an american college grad with a UK football hooligan. The Misfits is Heroes on crack without the polished to perfection characters and the big budget. But trust me, all of this is in its favour.

I cannot highly recommend the show enough if you enjoy shows from the UK. But let us get to the real reason for this Hub. The Music...

The Soundtrack...

Having watched both Seasons of the show, I could not help but notice how great the music and the selection of songs was, and that is what inspired this Hub.

So if you were watching The Misfits like me and thinking, "Oh, this song is great!", then never fear, for I have compiled all of the songs for you into one neat Hub.

The tracks are listed below in episode order & in order of when they are played in the episode. The Song/Band is shown as: “Name of the Song” – Band Name.

Thank you so much for this list!!!

Definitely the music is excellent!

I couldn't agree more with you on the Heroes vs Misfits subject.. I don't even try to explain to people anymore..

We can make them watch the show if we tell them about the music though... ;)

@kittygalaxy - Haha that is true :) Maybe we should just recommend the music and say they should watch the show as a side-note, then wait a few weeks and they will come to us saying how awesome the show is!

Thanks for your comment kittygalaxy, hopefully you found the song you were looking for!

Start a new list for Season 3?

There's this song in the scene where Alisha is telling Simon that she's 'not that person anymore' after a run-in with Rudy at the pub. I'm trying to find out what the name of the song is...

Atli 5 years ago

Does anyone know the song being played at 32:30 into the first episode of the third season when they are talking about Alisha being a cock monster? Ive searched high and low and I still haven't found it. Tried shazam as well as googling it. Alas no luck.
