Chapter 10:  “COUNTRY NIGHT” : Trennis Baer Segment – Easily hailed as one of the best songs on Thunderstruck 13, and yes, it’s a country song, “Country Night” is a perfect fit for cowboy Trennis and his ways both on and off the snowmobile.  Rockin’ country music is always funa dn always fits right in and the lyrics and music of this song blow people away.  Dance, sing, watch, whatever, it’s awesome!  Or better yet, come to a snow show and watch Matt Down and Jim Phelan drum along with rolled up posters!!

Chapter 15:  “BLOW ME AWAY” : Julio Eiguren Segment – It seems I always slow it down for Julio because his riding style just lends itself to slower songs.  It’s easy to throw Julio into slow motion just as easy as it is to keep him in true motion!  And the lyrics just work too!!

Chapter 1: “VICIOUS CYCLES” :  Intro Section, song 2 – Without a doubt the biggest band we have ever featured in a Thunderstruck movie, RLC is a constant stand-alone atop the rock music charts.  Vicious Cycles simply had what it took to sear the intro of Thunderstruck 11 into the world’s minds.  It truly is a great rock song and there’s not much I can say here, just listen to it!

Chapter 9: “DEJA VU” :  Mark Mesenbrink Section – Crunching guitars and a melodic chorus make this song one you’ll never forget.  Showcasing the talents of Mark Mesenbrink, it rocks from beginning to end with shouts of “yeah!” throughout!  Great song!

Chapter 10:  “VICIOUS CYCLES – ACOUSTIC VERSION” :  Randy Swenson Section – What a great song!  I just had to throw this amazing acoustic set of our intro song into the mix.  It fits so perfectly with Randy’s awesome footage!  I could listen to this song all day!

Chapter 13:  “FIRE RISING” :  Trennis and Cole Section – Another killer song from RLC!  Mellow and relaxing with a great rock vibe, the chorus grabs you by the throat and squeezes!  “The Sun will rise Again!”  Showcasing the great riding of Trennis and Cole and a few others, this song puts a smile on anyone’s face!

Chapter 14:  “FIRE RISING – ACOUSTIC VERSION” :  Credits – Red Line Chemistry did it again!  They took an already amazing song and threw down an incredible acoustic version!  Makes reading through the credits totally worthwhile!!

From Edmonton, AlbertaFive Years Further

Chapter 3: “MOVE” :  Julio Eiguren Section, song 1 – This song caught my ear last January and I fought tooth and nail to get the rights for this great song!  One of my favorites on TS11 and on ANY Thunderstruck movie, it melts rock with metal-rap with a catchy chorus and just an overall awesome beat and sound!  Lyrics rock, music rocks, and of course it just rushes Julio’s amazing footage right into your veins!

Chapter 7: “NOW OR NEVER” :  Tina Thomas Section – A rocking intro to this song gets all blood pumping  as Tina’s section starts.  Great song writing and singing highlight this tune which is so easy to listen to just a few times and know by heart!  Great song with nice editing licks and even a full stop or 2, it just simply delivers adrenaline!

Chapter 8: “HOME” :  Linden Ladouceur Section, song 1 – No doubt this song is VERY slow for a sledding soundtrack.  Adding ballads into a fast-paced sport is risky but with Linden’s amazing slow-motion shots it just works!  And the message of the song is so cool I just had to do it!

THROW THE FIGHT :: Thunderstruck 11 :: 2012

Chapter 3:  “LIGHTS OUT FOR SUMMER” : Julio Eiguren Section, song 2 – A perfect sledder’s anthem, throwthefight webas summer is usually our least favorite time, this rocking song just rips!  It’s as if we want our lights put out for summer, wake us up when the snow flies!!  Excellent song from Throw the Fight!!

Chapter 12: “NOT SO HOLLYWOOD” : Cam Hicks Section – One of my favorite songs on the soundtrack and the music video just rocks!  Cam has been nicknamed “Hollywood” for years and some of the lyrics just shout out CAM HOLLYWOOD HICKS: “Give him the spotlight… ‘Cuz that’s so Hollywood” and “We’re never gonna be like you, we’re not so Hollywood”.  Cam really is one of the best riders in the world and this song and his section are just fun!

Chapter 13: “BLOODSHOT EYES” :  Matt, Devin, Tom Section, song 3 – As always, Throw the Fight just writes great tunes!  The crunching guitar as Tom Schulke’s snowmobile slams into the back of his head after a rollover just makes you grit your teeth!  Awesome song, awesome band!

Chapter 4: “BROKEN PIECES MAKE THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS” :  Riley Jensen Section – An amazing song that starts out just perfectly, highlighting Riley Jensen’s amazing slow-motion powder days from the TS11 season.  Then, about halfway through, this song rips you into two “pieces” and rocks through the remainder of Ri-Ri’s crazy-good footage.  Great song and one of my favorite sections in Thunderstruck 11!

Chapter 5: “CAN’T ESCAPE” :  Mark Dixson Section – A killer bass line leads into this awesome Gordon Avenue song.  In all our test listens in anticipation of Thunderstruck 11, this song consistently rated in the top 3 of all the songs in TS11!  A catchy chorus and a fun, laid-back vibe (until the end) make this song pure anthem material and make Mark Dixson’s already awesome section that much better!

Chapter 13: “MOMENT I MEET MY WISH” :  Joe and Klim Section, song 2 – A bit of a sappy ballad had to go into the mix somewhere and this one from Gordon Avenue is fast-paced enough to flow smoothly with the great powder footage.  Great breaks and fun lyrics tempt you to make this an easy sing-along song on the TS11 soundtrack!

From Minneapolis, MN :: Smiling Politely on Facebook :: Smiling Politely on MySpace

Smiling Politely


Chapter 2: “DEATH IN SLOW MOTION” : Intro/Teaser – Although the teaser to TS10 starts out with orchestral notes, it segues quickly into this amazing rock and roll anthem which truly was one of the craziest songs to edit to ever!  I had so much fun with the slamming rhythms, pounding drums and ethereal slow sections, it just REALLY added a lot to the amazing footage showcased here.  You can check this teaser and DEATH IN SLOW MOTION out here:  TS10 TEASER – 2011

Chapter 7, Song 2: “DOWN” : Julio Eiguren Section, Song 2 – Smiling Politely wrote a perennial favorite here, a song which gets compliments everywhere we go!  From slow to medium paced, the catchy chorus and excellent edit-ablilty make Julio’s riding and antics look like a dreamy winter dessert!  A great song, well written and well performed!

Chapter 15:  “SO FAR GONE” : Brett Coupal/Julie Marquart Section – A mellow, anthem-like ballad with catchy melodies, this song drives its lyrics right into the rider’s sections, and for sure, as Brett’s sled rolls down the hill, we all think he is “So Far Gone”!  A fun ballad nonetheless, it is a perfect backdrop for Julie’s great powder riding also!

Chapter 16:  “VILLIAN” : Doug Anderson/Doc Shawn Nesbo Section – a slow start slices into some rocking guitar as Doug rips on his Nytro turbo.  And no doubt a “Villian”, Doc Nesbo takes his stocker Cat into the deepest snow of the year and has a few stuck issues!  A great, driving song that showcases the great rhythms and melodies that Smiling Politely has to offer.


TROY LAKUSTA SEGMENT: “ALONE” Another band with great production values, Alone exudes adrenaline and lyrically it just rocks!

DOUG ANDERSON/JOE BUSHILLA SEGMENT: “BURN” Anthem like in its delivery, this laid-back journey-of-a-song just takes you on the perfect ride. Awesome!

CAMERON HICKS SEGMENT: “FLY” Also one ofmy favorite songs on TS9, this songs just makes sense for Cam! Flying is one of the things he does best! A rocking ballad that surely inserts you deep into the heart of a snowy winter day!

RANDY SWENSON SEGMENT 2: “TONIGHT” This music almost makes a person cry! Awesome lyrics and music with a catchy rhythm, this is another song from Smiling Politely that ranks right up there with the best on TS9!

JULIO EIGUREN SEGMENT 2: “WAITING FOR THAT DAY” Julio was so happy this year when he got to hear he did not have any slow songs in his section! This rocker takes Julio’s footage into oblivion, with its catchy chorus punching you right into the snow!



From Edmonton, Alberta ::  Greg Wood Website ::  Greg Wood on Reverb

Greg Wood                                                     


GREG WOOD, a splash of bluesy-roots rock music mixed with authentic lyrics about love and lies, shaken with some smokin’ guitar, goes down smooth!

Whether in rockin’ anthems that will have you singing along, pumping your fist in the air, or heartfelt songs that make you believe he knows about the love you just lost, Greg’s guitar takes over singing where his distinctive, richly toned voice leaves off.

It was Greg’s electric guitar solos that first brought him to the stage. Loving the spotlight, he has been performing ever since. He has captivated audiences in venues both intimate as cafes, and as large as theatres/ festivals, performing at a multitude of events including BOONSTOCK 2011.

The EP
“Set You Free” (2008) and debut album “Greg Wood” (2009) charted on several college radio stations from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Vancouver Island; both had songs in light to heavy rotation on community, specialty, and several commercial stations.

“GREG WOOD III” released August 2011, is an eclectic and exciting collection, available on iTunes and other retailers world-wide.

Got wood?


Chapter 6: “RIDE ON” : Riley Jensen Section – We are truly blessed with having Greg on the TS10 soundtrack and believe it or not, he has become a friend of the riders and fans after attending the Sept 17th, 2011 Edmonton Premiere to party with us all!  What a ball we had!!  This great bluesy ballad/rocker is a great compliment to Riley’s amazing fluidity and it really conveys a great attitude that Riley always brings to the parking lot!  A great song from a great performer, check Greg’s new Acoustic stuff out also on ReverbNation!

Chapter 8:  “BORN TO BE ALONE” : Trennis Baer Section – Trennis had a rough end to his season as he totaled his front end of his sled, motor and all, and had to pay a chopper several thousand dollars to get his sled out.  Well, never being much of a rocker, Trennis’ section and footage rides along perfectly with this catchy, bluesy, ballady, rocking song from Mr. Greg Wood.  A great chorus with an excellent tag line, the whole song just melts you right into the style and presence of Trennis and his abilities.

Chapter 9:  “LITTLE WHILE” : Tina Thomas Section – Attitude!  Both song and rider!  Not sure why I thought of Tina when I first heard this awesome song from Greg Wood, but it just goes with any attitude of any hardcore riding chick!  With little on her mind but her sled and horsepower, the song takes us to that place, that place where Tina’s attitude and abilities shine through the great song!  One of my favorites!  And VERY easy to edit to!

Chapter 10, Song 2:  “RAZORBLADES” : Randy Swenson Section, Song 2 – Not sure how Greg can write every song so dang catchy, but what an amazing song!  Well written, well sung, a great song, PERIOD!  Showcasing Randy’s crazy antics, it really steams towards that climax in its chorus!  Great, great song!!

Chapter 17:  “OLD DUSTY ROAD” : Assorted Rider Section – I just listened to Greg’s acoustic version of this song tonight and in any way, this is just a great song.  The catchy lyrics drive the chorus right into your head and will have you singing it all day.  As a sidenote, I did have to block out one “adult” word in this song so although it may sound like a glitch in the matrix, it is actually just a little editing trick to get rid of those words without changing the music or beeping the word!  GREAT SONG, as are all of Greg Wood’s songs!



From Minneapolis, Minnesota ::  Tepetricy on Reverb :: Tepetricy on Facebook

Tepetricy Amazon


Chapter 3: “THE BRONZE OUTFIT” : Intro 2/Sponsors – A fast-paced rocker that never quits, this song with progressive riffs and great starts/stops throws Tepetricy’s style out for the masses and gives Thunderstruck fans a taste of a great Rock band!

Chapter 4:  “CHALLENGER” : Mark Mesenbrink Section – Slowing things down a little bit for Mark’s section, this is a great song with great meaning behind it.  Adding to it is Mark’s crazy and sometimes funny antics, the footage and the music seem to melt together and form an amazingly cohesive unit!

Chapter 12:  “A LONESOME NIGHT IN TRIAGE” : John Outhet Section – Starting vocally with a little background guitar, it falls into a crashing anthem that begins a dirge of progressive keys and guitars very reminiscent of the great band Dream Theater!  Never letting up, just like JohnO!



From Spokane, Washington ::  Oceans Divide Website :: Oceans Divide on Reverb

Oceans Divide


Chapter 5, Song 2: “BARELY ALIVE” : Mark Dixson Section, Song 2 – No question, Ocean’s Divide is on eof the best Rock bands in the Northwestern US!  With each song they weave intricate musical and lyrical webs, and at the end you are always wanting more.  The title here, BARELY ALIVE, puts Mark Dixson’s crazy antics to the test and whether or not Mark is on the verge throughout his section, this song pumps up the footage and really makes it shine.  I thought twice about using this song as the chorus sounds like it says “buried alive” and of course as backcountry sledders that is exactly what we DO NOT want to do!  But common sense reigned, we know the lyric is BARELY ALIVE, so enjoy the song and footage and check out Ocean’s Divide!

Chatper 7, Song 1: “ONE STEP CLOSER” : Julio Eiguren Section, Song 1 – Another great rocking song from Ocean’s Divide, the great vocals and rocking, driving guitars sound like molten lava for the ears as Julio blows our minds on his Apex!  With a great and very catchy chorus, this song pinches, pulls and grinds us into a powdery heaven!

Chapter 10, Song 1:  “SEE WHAT I SEE” : Randy Swenson Section, Song 1 – Probably the craziest guitars on the soundtrack, this song grinds in a fast-paced manner with solid, permeating rhythm guitars.  With a catchy chorus and an overall great feel (a la Nickelback, perhaps), this song is one that gets tons of compliments and discussion.  And when it climaxes, watch out!  Great Guitar solo!

Chapter 14:  “REVOLUTION” : Linden Ladouceur/Joe Bushilla Section – The Fight of our Lives!  Revolution brings just about everything a rock song can bring, harmony, guitar, slamming drums, a great chorus, catchy lyrics….  Well, like I said, everything!  Showcasing newcomer Linden and old-hat Joe, this great song leaves us all wanting more Ocean’s Divide!



From Edmonton, Alberta  ::  Tupelo Honey Website :: Tupelo Honey on Reverb

Tupelo Honey


Chapter 5, Song 1: “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR” : Mark Dixson Section, Song 1 – One of my favorite songs on the TS10 Soundtrack, Tupelo Honey, an amazing band from central Alberta, drives the amazing footage Mark Dixson provided right into your chest, putting amazing fear and chill-factor into each second!  An awesome pair with Marl’s craziness, Tupelo Honey is a reigning Canadian Rock band that is a welcome addition to TS10!


From Chicago, Illinois ::  5 Step Drop on Facebook :: 5 Step Drop on Reverb

Chapter 13:  “SOLITUDE” : Dan Bush/Travis Hyde/Jim Phelan Section – This song caught my ear the second I heard it.  Rocking much like one of my favorite bands of all time, Warrior Soul, this Windy City-based band really shines on this amazing song!  Speaking of the insanity one encounters from being alone, it showcases the footage nicely and really starts rocking, taking sled, rider and fan over the top!

Chapter 18:  “SENSES LOST” : Credit Section – The perfect ballad, the ethereal vocals in this song just make us melt into the strato-lounger!  Catchy and fun, this song really deserves its own riding section but alas, we ran out of room on the DVD!  A great song from a great band, I cannot wait to hear their new stuff coming soon!

BRAD STORY SEGMENT 2: “ALIVE” A catchy rocking song that punches you right in the zipper! Great music, great lyrics and a catchy hook!

MARK DIXSON/WES LITTLE SEGMENT: “STORY OF THE WORLD” One of ForthAngel’s newer songs, this thing just puts some aggression into the film! Backing Mark D and Wes, it absolutely rocks and without a doubt has one of the catchiest choruses on TS9!



DIGITAL SUMMERDigital summer



Chapter 11, Song 1:  “INSIDE MY HEAD” : Cam Hicks Section, Song 1 – Driving, teasing, putting forth great rock, this is just a great song from Digital Summer!  The slower bridges drive toward the chorus and the second verse just flows out of the lead singer’s vocal chords like melted butter on lobster!  Yep, it’s that good!

Chapter 11, Song 2: “THE THRILL” : Cam Hicks Section, Song 2 – Heavy and melodic, THE THRILL takes you on a fast-paced journey up and down the mountains of southern British Columbia!  Chain saw guitars and great lyrics mixed with Cam and Tyler Hick’s amazing footage really takes each and every one of us on a “THRILL” ride!  “Maybe we’re insane, but maybe we don’t care!” are the lyrics that take off on a nice dirge in the middle, ending in a crash of sound and melody and grinding vocals.  GREAT song!


RANDY SWENSON SECTION 1: “ANYBODY OUT THERE” Some fancy editing put the excellent a capella verse right at the beginning but asyou listen you see the hooks and rythms in the song just put you on the snow! Awesome!

SHAWN HASTINGS/JULIE MARQUART SECTION: “MORPHINE” An awesome lyrical song with a great tone, easily dips the watcher and listener into the deepest powder fields in the world! With a rocking course, it is easy to take the morphine out and put the adrenaline in!

RIDERS AND SPONSORS SECTION: “SHALLOW” Another amazing song from Digital Summer, with a catchy chorus and awesome lyrics!

GUESTS SECTION: “TODAY” Laid back, tempting, really makes a powder-filled day easy to imagine. A great song from beginning to end, Today is every day for us in the mountains!
