Additional soundtrack info
Braff won a Grammy in February of 2005 for "Best Compilation Soundtrack For A Motion Picture" for Garden State, on which he served as the compilation producer.

Director Zach Braff says when he was trying to get companies to buy the script and make the movie, he gave a copy of a CD containing the songs from the movie with it.

Director/writer/star Zach Braff is a big fan of the band The Shins. The group was not particularly well known until the release of this feature. "New Slang" (by the aforementioned band, track 4 on this CD) is also on the soundtrack to a show Braff acts on, "Scrubs."

Q: What is the song playing on the DVD menu? I can only hear a part of it and there are no lyrics. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it's not on the CD. Anyone know what it is and where can I get it? (from BH in Washington, DC)
A: I found this answer from the Zach Braff website forum. It doesn't really help any because the song was never released. In case the link doesn't work it says: "We are getting email daily asking about the song playing during the menu area on the DVD. So here is the answer. The unreleased DVD menu song is "Motorcycle Ride with Sam" by Chad Fisher. This is not the official name, cause it doesn't really have one. It's been named "Motorcycle Ride with Sam" by fans. Again this is unreleased." (thanks to Roberto, new haven, ctadd more info
