Jenna Ortega Suggests Deftones Song for ‘Scream’ Chase Theme
Jenna Ortega, the Wednesday actress who plays the scream queen Tara Carpenter in the Scream franchise, recently suggested a Deftones song when asked what would make a good Scream chase theme. Scream VI starring Ortega arrived in theaters last week.
A music fan who admittedly makes "a lot of playlists," she also threw out tunes from Nine Inch Nails and The Beatles as music that could soundtrack a Scream movie. And her Scream VI co-stars chimed in with their Scream song ideas on MTV's Music To Blank To.

"It's kind of a basic one, but also it goes along with this movie, 'Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away),' the Deftones song," Ortega says. "I feel like they're just trying to get away. I feel like that could be an interesting one."

Asked if Tara would have her own character theme, the actress delved further into rock and metal, picking out a 1999 Nine Inch Nails cut and a 1967 Beatles ballad.

"'The Only Way Out is Through' by Nine Inch Nails would be interesting," Ortega says.
"'She's Leaving Home' by The Beatles, because they are leaving Woodsboro, would be a good one," she adds.

Rock + Metal in the Scream Franchise
While the music of Scream VI does include Linkin Park member Mike Shinoda's collaboration with the pop star Demi Lovato, "Still Alive," as well as Shinoda's own "In My Head," it's still not quite the rock or nu-metal-driven affairs of past Scream soundtracks.
The Scream 3 soundtrack album, released at the height of nu-metal in 2000, was produced by Wind-up Records and features Creed, Slipknot, Finger Eleven, System of a Down and a slew of similar-sounding acts.
And 1997's Scream 2 soundtrack focuses on alt-rock, including songs by Sugar Ray, Foo Fighters, Everclear, Dave Matthews Band and more.
Deftones have yet to appear on a Scream soundtrack.
