About this Playlist
It had never even dawned on me to make a League of Legends playlist, let alone curate one that’s specifically devoted to a single character—Jinx. Even after catching the Netflix series ‘Arcane’, a soundtrack wasn’t particularly on my radar. I generally stay away from playlists devoted to specific TV shows, movies and games, and not just because productions/studios have their own soundtracks (which are usually fantastic) but also because everybody and their dog has made one. In fact, I can hear another one being made right now!
Last week, however, while looking for new band submissions on musicto.com, I landed on Arizona female-fronted rock band Turn Zero and their cover of the League of Legends/PVRIS track “Burn It All Down.” I hadn’t heard the original version, but I fell in love with it. And if there’s an opportunity to promote a young up-and-coming band, I’m usually all over it. Right there and then—and against my general rule (even if rules are made to be broken… like buildings!)—I made the decision to curate a playlist around this track.
Of course, the song “Burn It All Down” isn’t part of the ‘Arcane’ Netflix series or about the LoL champion Jinx. “It was originally released in collaboration with League of Legends to celebrate this year’s (2021) World Championship,” wrote Turn Zero lead singer, gamer, and avid Twitch streamer Emily Grieve.
The second I heard the song, Jinx was shooting around in my head, so it doesn’t matter that the track itself isn’t about her character. What matters is that Turn Zero are the inspiration for this playlist, which I would have never created otherwise.
I didn’t have to think too hard about the title of my playlist; Burn It All Down is kickass enough. Nevertheless, this Jinx playlist is a bit different from many circulating on Spotify and elsewhere because I haven’t included a single track from the Arcane series and the title track cover is the only one from League of Legends. It took me three days of tracking down appropriate songs with specific sounds or themes to reflect a blend of the series and game character to bring you a slightly eccentric cinematic Jinx playlist that I hope LoL gamers, Arcane fans, and Turn Zero can all enjoy. I’m more than happy with it. My only question is which champion is next?!
