Good news for music-loving Marvel Comics fans: Unlike the ”X-Men” movie, Sony Pictures’ upcoming ”Spider-Man” will be accompanied by a song-driven soundtrack album, slated for an April 30 release.

Among the confirmed artists are Alien Ant Farm, who recorded a new track, ”Bug Bites”; Sum 41, who will contribute a Rick Rubin-produced tune, ”It’s What We’re All About”; a ”supergroup” with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Saliva’s Josey Scott, and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, who’ve recorded a song called ”Hero”; and Macy Gray, whose previously released ”My Nutmeg Phantasy” is slated for inclusion.

A Sony Pictures exec reports that Gray ”will also have a role in the film” but refused to confirm a rumor that strands of Gray’s ‘fro will be used to provide Spidey’s superstrength webbing.
