In Brief

** Various artists, "Beavis and Butt-head Do America" soundtrack, Geffen.

November 17, 1996|Sandy Masuo

This might not be the coolest soundtrack of the year, but it doesn't totally suck either. Between Isaac Hayes' wry, "Shaft"-inspired opening theme and Engelbert Humperdinck's excruciatingly silly closer, you'll find everything from LL Cool J's suave interpretation of Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody" to a new Ozzy Osbourne track produced by techno mogul Moby. The only thing missing is a unifying theme--but then again, Beavis and Butt-head are no natural born killers.
