Music Monday: Juno Reactor - Mona Lisa Overdrive

If today's Music Monday selection sounds familiar and you can't quite place it, you're likely remembering it from the epic highway chase in The Matrix: Reloaded.

Juno Reactor has been around since 1990, and if you've seen a blockbuster action movie in the last 20 years you've likely heard their music (even if you didn't realize it). Their music has appeared in tons of movie soundtracks, including Mortal Kombat, Brave, and the aforementioned Matrix trilogy. A powerhouse of the techno-industrial genre, Ben Watkins' brainchild hits hard with intense, pulse-pounding beats that feel straight out of a cyberpunk thrill ride. Listen to this track if you dare...it weighs in at just over 10 minutes. Be careful listening to it in the car; there's a good reason they tagged this onto the freeway chase scene.
