Bill and Ted go to Hell accompanied by a stomping, pounding soundtrack that ranges from Steve Vai to Kiss to Primus. As always, some material stands out and other material can be ignored -- Kiss' plodding "God Gave Rock & Roll to You II" makes them sound as though they should be covering Frank Sinatra songs. Steve Vai's contribution (repeated with sampled dialog from the movie) is a definite standout, along with Faith No More's "The Perfect Crime," Megadeth's gloomy "Go to Hell," Primus' "Tommy the Cat" (featuring Tom Waits) and Love on Ice's "Showdown." Oddly enough, along with full credits and pictures the album also gives you complete lyrics.
