Sept 1, 2004 - Epic Records had good news to announce about the release of the soundtrack to "Garden State." Three weeks after hitting stores, the soundtrack doubled its sales and reached #25 on Billboard's Top 200 and #2 on the Top Soundtracks chart.

Writer/director/actors Zach Braff ("Scrubs") chose each of the songs on the soundtrack to fit the style and tone of his film. Braff believed the movie's soundtrack was an absolutely integral part of his film. "Essentially, I just made a mix CD of the music that I felt was scoring my late twenties," Braff said in a press release issued by Epic Records. "I never imagined that so many people of so many different ages would respond to the same bands that inspire me. I guess the coolest thing about the soundtrack's success is that it shows the labels that there's a bona fide desire for this kind of music. That, and the fact that my grandmother's driving around Boca Raton cranking Coldplay."

1. "Don't Panic" - Coldplay
