Coldplay gave song to 'Garden State' movie for free

Back in 2004, stadium rockers Coldplay waived their usual fee and gave a song to the soundtrack of Zach Braff's popular indie movie 'Garden State' because they liked it so much. 

In a new interview with London's Time Out magazine, actor Braff explained that the band, who won the Best British Group prize at last night's (February 21) BRITs, were so impressed with the film that they handed over a song named 'Don't Panic' free of charge:

"Chris Martin and the guys in Coldplay put their song on my soundtrack. 'Garden State' was, you know, this little movie, and they just said yes because they liked the movie and not for, at the time, any dough (money), because we couldn't offer them any."

Coldplay are still collectively doing great things with their music - even in 2012 - and earlier today released their live version of 'Charlie Brown', as performed at yesterday's BRIT Awards, through iTunes with proceeds going to The BRITs Trust.
