Chosen One of the Day: The Daredevil (2003) soundtrack

I know we like to think that the modern age of superhero movies began with the dawn of the MCU in 2008, but really, we've been making one version of these movies or another since the comics first hit the shelves. We like to forget about a lot of the lesser ones, though. Your Catwomans, your Batman and Robins, your … Daredevils.

That's right. In case you had forgotten -- or blocked it from your memory -- the hit Netflix series wasn't the first time Hollywood attempted to bring the blind vigilante to screens. Back in 2003, they also made an ill-fated, widely ridiculed go at the character, starring Ben Affleck.

It was … not good. Though it gets some credit for at least being better than its Elektra follow-up.

But the one part of the movie that will forever have a place in the hearts and minds of fans and non-fans alike is the movie's iconic soundtrack. That 20-track album included such bands as Hoobastank, Seether, Chevelle and Drowning Pool. It might as well have been the soundtrack to 2003 itself.

How can you hate an album that includes not one but two different Evanescence songs? Admit it, "Bring Me to Life" was your high school anthem for at least three whole months.

And what kind of movie would it be without Nickelback?

Truly, nothing can perfectly encapsulate what it was like to be a teenager in the early 2000s better than this, so it's time to grab your baggy jeans, your band tee and your Manic Panic hair dye, head to Hot Topic and blast this album while hanging with your friends at the mall arcade.

You know, for old times' sake.
