John Waters' Cry-Baby goes hand in hand with Hairspray, and is a musical film that will probably appeal more to Waters' fans than fans of musical cinema. The music on the soundtrack is energetic and exciting; its bizarre nature is probably due to the scenes from the film rather than its own oddities. Waters describes it as "music that proved kids knew how to be bad before sex, drugs, and rock & roll." Songs like "Doin' Time for Bein' Young" and "High School Hellcats" are good rock & roll songs. James Intveld provides most of the vocals.
