In The Angry Birds Movie, we're finally going to find out what made those oh-so-launchable birds so mad. And to accompany film, there's going to be a not-so-angry soundtrack, which got its full tracklist on Friday (April 8).

The album, which was led by the release of Blake Shelton's "Friends" earlier this week, also features an assortment of other cast members. Charli XCX penned a new song "Explode" for the soundtrack, and even actor Peter Dinklage is getting in on the action with "The Mighty Eagle Song."

Beyond the new songs, The Angry Birds Movie soundtrack also features some classic hits. Demi Lovato's contribution to the OST is a new take on the classic disco hit "I Will Survive," and other old favorites also make appearances in their original form. The Scorpions' "Rock You Like a Hurricane," Limp Bizkit's "Behind Blue Eyes" and, yes, even Rick Astley's classic troll anthem "Never Gonna Give You Up" also made the tracklisting.
