According to a Reddit thread entitled, “Damn the soundtrack is great,” a number of “Sons of Anarchy” fans thoroughly enjoyed the show’s music. A plethora of fans praised the Forest Rangers, in particular, for lending their talents to the majority of the tracks, which this user said are effectively placed in the show.
For example, this user argued that “Come Join the Murder” is the perfect song for the final scene, while “Day is Gone” is the ideal backdrop for the death of Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff). Other “Sons of Anarchy” fans appeared to be in agreement. In one comment, u/rapscallionrodent said, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show have such a strong soundtrack and use the music so well for its scenes.” Other commenters shared their own favorite musical moments in the series. For example, u/xinfinitimortum provided other favorite songs on the soundtrack, such as the White Buffalo’s “Oh Darlin’ What Have I Done” and Curtis Stigers and the Forest Rangers’ “John the Revelator.” This user also applauded Katey Sagal’s inclusion on the soundtrack as “pretty rad.”
In another comment, u/eZCoffeE noted that they particularly enjoyed Battleme’s “Hey Hey, My My,” heard during the last episode of Season 3. As for Ed Sheeran’s contribution, u/007Kryptonian hailed it as “fantastic and powerful.” Of course, not everyone is meant to enjoy everything. In another Reddit thread, u/gucci_flocka_flame asked, “Is there a reason WHY [Sons of Anarchy] has the worst soundtrack ever?” Though some commenters agreed, “Sons of Anarchy” fans largely came to the music’s defense. Responding to this comment, u/xLite414 wrote, “SoA is the only show I’ve actually bought the soundtracks because of how good the music was. Many share the same opinion that SoA has great music also.”
