Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph says band was on Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack until Tom Cruise ‘just came in and just fired everyone’

Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph said that his band was slated to be on the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack – until the film’s leading man and producer Tom Cruise let them go from the high-profile project.

Joseph, 33, speaking with KROQ Friday, said that he and drummer Josh Dun, 33, had worked on music for the long-awaited sequel.

‘I was working with the music placement person for the new Top Gun on writing a new song for them,’ Joseph said, ‘and then I believe Tom Cruise just came in and just fired everyone.’

An insider told Billboard the Ohio-based duo had never been officially signed to perform on the film’s soundtrack. 

Joseph said that Twenty One Pilots was a ‘a part of’ the major changes made to the movie amid multiple delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, as the preview for the movie first was released in July of 2019.

Joseph said he ‘saw some scenes’ of the high-profile motion picture, which features Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer and Jon Hamm.

‘They brought me in to show me some scenes and stuff, and I actually don’t think I started writing,’ the Heathens artist said. ‘It was actually pretty soon after they brought me in to show me parts of the movie of what they were looking for and stuff then I kind of got word that there was a wholesale swap.’

Lady Gaga headlines the soundtrack to the summer blockbuster with the ballad Hold My Hand; and also collaborated with Hans Zimmer and Harold Faltermeyer on the film’s score.

Other artists and songs showcased on the compilation, according to an Amazon  listing, include the Kenny Loggins hit from the 1986 original Danger Zone; I Ain’t Worried by OneRepublic; and a rendition of the Jerry Lee Lewis movie Great Balls of Fire from Teller.

Top Gun: Maverick will open in theaters May 27.
