International pressings

Many versions of the soundtrack outside the United States contained additional tracks by artists exclusive to their native countries.

Omissions

  • 3 Doors Down's single "Let Me Go" was originally intended for the soundtrack but was withheld.
  • The song "Where I Belong", by Sia was earmarked to appear on the soundtrack, but owing to a record label conflict, its inclusion was withdrawn. The single's cover art featured Sia dressed in a Spider-Man costume.[citation needed]

Towards the end of post-production, things were running tight and a few cues were replaced with music written by John Debney and Christopher Young. While neither of those two composers' contributions appear on the album, Elfman has opted to release the original cues he wrote for two sequences: 'Train / Appreciation'... [and] 'Aunt May Packs'.
