Various Artists – Soundtrack: The Last Action Hero (1993)

The music to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest blockbuster packs as much punch as its brawny star. With bands such as AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Megadeth, Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Queensryche contributing, this star-studded collection is a hard-rock summit.

AC/DC’s catchy “Big Gun” and Def Leppard’s acoustic “Two Steps Behind” are highlights on a high-concept album of high quality. Too bad the same couldn’t be said for the associated film.
