The Umbrella Academy's Season 3 Soundtrack Is Full Of Throwback Jams

It's banger after period-accurate banger.

Before The Umbrella Academy became Netflix’s biggest superhero series to date, the comic’s creator (and series executive producer) Gerard Way was best known as co-founder and singer of My Chemical Romance. The series has certainly taken inspiration from Way’s musical background, with extraordinary soundtracks full of deep-cut indie hits every season, and the latest installment is no exception. The Umbrella Academy’s Season 3 soundtrack is basically the mixtape of bangers everyone wishes Luther would make for them.

Like with Season 1, Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy returns to the present day after spending all of Season 2 in the 1960s. The refocus on the current timeline also means a return to present-day music. But unlike Season 1, an indie deep-cut lover’s dream, Season 3 isn’t afraid to put some significant hits front and center as well as some timeless classics. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t rustle up some obscure covers, including one from a superhero-from-another-franchise, Jeremy Renner.

The series revolves around time, its changes, the sudden lack of it, and making the most of what’s left. That means the series gives characters significant milestones in a way that audiences haven’t seen yet, from pregnancies and babies to weddings and engagements and even a funeral or two. The result is a soundtrack that includes everything from karaoke favorites to love songs and a few tearjerkers.
