Spotify has released a series of “official” Star Wars: The Force Awakens playlists, that give Kylo Ren, Rey and Finn their own soundtracks.

The official Star Wars: The Force Awakens score by John Williams is now available, and it’s epic.

But if you want something a little more upbeat, check out Spotify’s curated character playlists, that are basically half-official fan mixes.

If you’re feeling lucky, use Spotify’s matcher to find out which Star Wars character you are (based on your taste in music).

Otherwise, just browse the collection! Each character has their own playlist, that are pretty much exactly what you expect them to be.

Kylo Ren is channeling his Dark Side (and emo pop persuasion) with tracks like “Dead Inside” by Muse, “Thunder & Lightning” by Motorhead, and “I Am the Fire” by Halestorm:



And here’s Rey, whose music is of the fierce female variety:



We particularly enjoy the additions of Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Nicki Minaj’s “Starships.”

But of course what we all really want is the kind of music BB-8 listens to. Between “Uptown Funk,” “Don’t Worry” and “Rolling in the Deep,” BB-8 is a non-stop hit machine:



We guess he’s pretty much his own road trip anyway though, huh?

Make sure you check out the other playlists, that include Finn, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke, Leia, Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3PO, and Anakin Skywalker (this particular playlist includes such timeless hits as “What’s My Age Again?” and “Teenagers”).
