“The Rugrats Movie” Soundtrack To Make Vinyl Debut In Celebration of 20th Anniversary

“The Rugrats Movie” Soundtrack To Make Vinyl Debut In Celebration of 20th Anniversary

Twenty years ago, The Rugrats Movie brought the beloved animated show to the big screen for the first time. The star-studded spectacular, featuring Tommy Pickles and his baby gang in an adventure of blockbuster-sized proportions, was an instant sensation and grossed $141 million, making it the first non-Disney animated film to gross over $100 million in the U.S., and the highest-grossing animated film based on a TV series. Driving the action-packed movie was an inspired soundtrack comprised of new, original songs and covers by an eclectic mix ranging from the hip-hop of Blackstreet, Mya, Mase, Busta Rhymes to the rock and pop of No Doubt, Elvis Costello, Lisa Loeb and Devo. On the ambitious “This World Is Something New To Me,” the two minute song crams in a dizzying array of artists including Beck, Jakob Dylan, Iggy Pop, Phife Dawg, Lenny Kravitz, Laurie Anderson, Patti Smith, B-Real, Lou Rawls, Gordan Gano of the Violent Femmes and The B-52s who all lend their voices to their Rugrats personas.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film and soundtrack, The Rugrats Movie: Music from The Motion Picture will be made available on vinyl for the first time ever, allowing those who grew up with the series and new fans to enjoy these hugely successful and celebrated songs. A special limited-edition version on orange colored wax will be exclusively available on Urban Legends.

It’s almost entirely impossible to separate great movie moments from the music that soundtracked them. With something as generationally adored as “The Rugrats,” it is even more impossible, especially when you consider the paramount artist that were tasked with contributing to the film. Legends, fleeting hit makers, and revered songwriters alike were all involved in couching the film in colorful sonics that bolstered the movie’s impact. Even Blondie’s monster single “One Way Or Another” got a facelift for a punchy cover by Cheryl Chase, the voice of Angelica. What speaks to the movie’s overarching impact is the eclectic nature of the artists and the tracks themselves, ranging from hip-hop, to R&B, to pop, and rock as well.

The great Mark Mothersbaugh (of Devo fame) produced the soundtrack with signature touches that added connective fabric to the entire release. In fact, Mothersbaugh wrote the TV show’s opening theme as well as its catchy lead single, “Take Me There,” which went Platinum in the U.S. and charted at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally, the soundtrack also struck listeners, moving upwards to No. 15 on Tokyo’s charts and topping the New Zealand pop charts as well. Unique and wide-ranging—and much more than a simple soundtrack— there is much here for multiplegenerations to grasp onto and to enjoy, testament to why it remains such an endearing soundtrack to this day.

About THE HUNGER GAMES

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 23.5 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
