What songs are in Yellowjackets season 2 episode 1? Being half set in the ’90s, you know Yellowjackets has some great tunes on the soundtrack. Warning, spoilers ahead.

What song is Shauna’s husband Jeff listening to?
Shauna’s husband Jeff listens to ‘Last Resort’ by Papa Roach. Given he was in college when the album Infest came out, he was the perfect age for Papa Roach and nu metal to form an indelible part of his musical identity.
He uses ‘Last Resort’ as a song to get himself pumped up. It’s a funny scene that plays in an overarching theme looking at the ways we never quite outgrow our teenage and early adult years.
What song plays over the Yellowjacket season 2 episode 1 credits?
‘Cornflake Girl’ by Tori Amos brings us into the Yellowjackets season 2 episode 1 credits. The tune accompanies the last we see of Shauna who’s been keeping one of Jackie’s ears around. Right at the end, she takes a bite while the song is playing, a creepy foreshadowing of what might be to come.
