Overview

Not Another Teen Movie ruthlessly parodies teen flicks from the past 20 years, but the soundtrack offers a more heartfelt -- or at least less tongue-in-cheek -- appreciation of the music that made the '80s teen flick a genre unto itself. Alt-rock superstars try their hand at new wave touchstones, from Depeche Mode -- represented by Smashing Pumpkins' ruminative, swirling guitar version of "Never Let Me Down Again" and Stone Temple Pilot Scott Weiland's lush rendition of "But Not Tonight"-- to New Order, saluted by Orgy's previously released aggro-rock reading of "Blue Monday" and Stabbing Westward's melodic, guitar-driven "Bizarre Love Triangle," sprinkled with chiming glockenspiel. Other '80s artists who get their props are Nena (Goldfinger's ska-flavored "99 Red Balloons," complete with the original German lyrics), Modern English (Mest's "I Melt with You"), and Soft Cell (Marilyn Manson's creepy industrial-rock "Tainted Love"). Fans of the Pretty in Pink soundtrack will be pleasantly surprised by Good Charlotte's pop-punk take on O.M.D. ("If You Leave") and Muse's churning homage to the Smiths ("Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want"). Tying up all this plundering of teen pop culture is Phantom Planet (featuring Rushmore's Jason Schwartzman) delivering a harmony-soaked cover of Jackson Browne's "Somebody's Baby" (originally found on the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack).
