The concept of Fight Club, the movie, is extremely controversial. While some fans consider it a masterpiece and the best in the series, many other critics are against it. Critics include Robin Wood, Kevin Smith, Rob Schneider, Oliver Stone, Quentin Tarantino, the original director and also Tyler Durden himself. The main reason why the movie has received such a negative response from many people is because they believe it to be an advertisement for the Serato Traktor DJ software.
When the movie was released in theatres, it was one of the first movies to be released with the Traktor-compatible technology. The Serato system features advanced music synthesis algorithms that allows you to build beats in real time while you play them on the drum machine. So, while the DVD version of the movie features its own artist contributed instrumental song by the G-Unit singer Method Man, it does not mean that you can not use it in your own recordings.
The problem with the movie is that the Serato technology is so advanced that it's easy to believe that it would somehow promote the use of this software when it doesn't. In actual fact, it's only the use of the song that makes the movie so popular. As well as the studio, The Matrix is considered to be the best movie of all time. It depicts a world that is ruled by machines rule the humans. However, according to an article published by NPR, The Matrix is a fictional movie, whereas The Fight Club is a real-life event.
In a review by John Paul Sousa, we read that he believes that Fight Club is an example of the "self-defeating nature of the Matrix". As stated by Mr. Sousa, he believes that the movie is a product of the technology of the Internet, a belief that I entirely agree with. However, despite the fact that it's a fictional story, the movie can still be used to make a real song.
The decision to make a song out of Fight Club was made by David Fincher. Mr. Fincher has produced other films like Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac.
The beat of the song was originally created by DeadMau5 and posted in YouTube, which can be found below. Although I personally do not agree with the choice to post this beat, I can understand Mr. Fincher's interest in using it.
In an interview with Guillermo Del Toro, he also revealed that he also had some things to do with the movie. According to him, he was just playing with his new synthesizer. Since there are only two songs that use it, I can see why he chose it, I guess the use of the song in the movie was a coincidence.
So, if you like watching great movies with great performances, then you can enjoy watching Fight Club. If you like great artwork, I recommend listening to the song that is based on the movie, and if you like great drum machines, then I suggest you try it for yourself!
