The original soundtrack to the Wayans Brothers' gross-out horror spoof Scary Movie: Music That Inspired the Soundtrack? is half alternative rock from artists like Oleander, Radford, and Save Ferris, and half hip-hop from Black Eyed Peas, Public Enemy, and Royce the 5'9." Fountains Of Wayne's clever, power poppy "Too Cool For School," the Unband's garagey "Everybody Wants You," and a double dose of goofiness from the Bloodhound Gang's "The Inevitable Return of the Great White Dope" and the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" are among the highlights from the album's first half. Royce's "Scary Movies (Sequel)," Rah Digga, Rampage, and Rock's "Feel Me," and Lifelong and Incident's grisly "I'm the Killer (Killer Rap)" are some of the standout raps. Though it's not as funny or inventive as the movie itself, Scary Movie is a decent, diverse collection of hip-hop and rock.
