Various Artists — Soundtrack: Wayne’s World (1992)

waynes worldBy Scott Goldfine

In keeping with the “Wayne’s World” characters’ “party on!” philosophy, this soundtrack to the sleeper comedy hit of the year consists of new and 1970s hard rock. Several established acts as well as a couple of new ones are represented. Tracks by the Bulletboys, Alice Cooper, Red Hot Chili Peppers and AC/DC-like Rhino Bucket fare the best.

In sum, a rowdy collection well suited for car stereos that breathed new life into the rock-opera chestnut “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Queen).
