Various Artists — Soundtrack: Private Parts (1997)

private partsBy Scott Goldfine

This feisty soundtrack to the Howard Stern film offers new material from cutting-edge contemporary acts such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Porno for Pyros and Marilyn Manson, and familiar tracks from 1970s hard-rockers such as Deep Purple, Ted Nugent and Van Halen.

The self-proclaimed King of All Media breaks things up with snippets from his radio shows. The whole affair has a giddy appeal.
