Anyone who has been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog during the past 20 years is likely to have heard of the band Crush 40. The Japanese-American hard rock duo have composed songs for many Sonic the Hedgehog games, including Sonic Adventure, Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, and many more. As the sequel to 2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie inches closer to release, Crush 40's involvement has now been teased.
Johnny Gioeli, the lead singer for Crush 40, recently took to Twitter to say “Is it rumor or is it fact that Crush 40 will be part of the new Sonic movie?? Stay tuned…”
2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie served as a love letter to the franchise’s fans, referencing Sonic’s entire history in many different ways. It seems the sequel is looking to double down on this element, and bringing Crush 40 into the fray will only further excite fans of Sonic’s 3D outings.

Crush 40 have composed songs for almost a dozen Sonic games, namely Sonic Adventure; Sonic Adventure 2; Sonic Heroes; Shadow the Hedgehog; Sonic the Hedgehog (2006); Sonic and the Black Knight; Sonic Free Riders; Sonic Generations and Team Sonic Racing, meaning that regardless of which Sonic games you have played, you are likely to have heard at least a few of their iconic songs.
It will be interesting to see what role Crush 40 play in the movie, whether it will be a small cameo, or if they will compose all of its music – hopefully it’s the latter.
