My little brother was always tryin' to bust my chops with versions of 50s/60s tunes, the weirder the better of course. So this soundtrack was a treasure trove. He specifically bought it for Slayer's Inna, due to the stories I would tell about the Cambodian/Thailand/Vietnamese band versions I heard while I was "in country".....simply think of the tune at MAX volume in pidgin' English.....very touching while being slovenly hilarious.
I can remember both of us being disappointed that the Danzig/Orbison tune wasn't a little more POWER=oriented (OK, ALOT more) ; and the simple fact that Aerosmith even still existed. And what could you say about the Bangles' Hazy (which they rocked even harder in concert). But it was the LL Cool J and Public Enemy cuts that impressed us most. Like, who in the hell were these cats, and where were they coming from. Didn't take long to find out.
And, yep, haven't seen the flick yet either :+)
