"The Social Network"
Composers: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
Credentials: Reznor, of course, is responsible for unleashing industrial rock act Nine Inch Nails on the world, while Ross caught fire as a programmer and audio engineer on albums like "With Teeth" and "Ghosts" and others with Tim Simenon's Bomb the Bass.
Why it's awesome: Reznor and Ross won a well-deserved Oscar for their pulsating, varied work on Fincher's film. It was a major milestone for what's possible with film music composition.
Best track: "A Familiar Taste"
