“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.

No Doubt Celebrates 25th Anniversary Of Their Self-Titled Debut Album With Special Vinyl Reissue!

No Doubt Celebrates 25th Anniversary Of Their Self-Titled Debut Album With Special Vinyl Reissue!

No Doubt‘s eponymous 1992 debut album introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind band that would soon dominate the music world with their dynamic sound. With such early hits as “Trapped In A Box” exemplifying the group’s original ska-pop sound, No Doubt kicked off the band’s career with a bang, laying the groundwork for the   multi-platinum success that they’d achieve over the next twenty-plus years.

On November 10, UMe celebrates the 25th anniversary of No Doubt’s original release with a sparkling new vinyl edition of the album that originally put No Doubt on the map. In addition to marking the debut disc’s first-ever vinyl release, the new LP will be pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl. Additionally, exclusive limited-edition colored-vinyl versions will be available through No Doubt’s official website, as well as the online retail sites uDiscover and The Sound of Vinyl. In addition to the album’s original front cover art, the back cover of the new vinyl edition features a never-before-seen band photo from the original photo session by photographer Chris Cuffaro.

No DoubtGwen Stefani on vocals, her brother Eric Stefani on keyboards, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal and drummer Adrian Young—originally became a local sensation on their Southern California home turf, before bursting onto the national and international scenes with an effervescent, new-wave infused sound that offered an upbeat alternative to the angst-driven grunge-rock that dominated the charts at the time. No Doubt’s early ska leanings are balanced on the album by a state-of-the-art pop sensibility that manifests itself on such tunes as “Let’s Get Back,” “Move On” and “Get On The Ball.” Although the debut album was not a major hit at the time of its original release, it emerged as a fan favorite as No Doubt subsequently became one of their era’s most popular bands.

After releasing No Doubt, the band would score a series of smash singles and massively popular  albums like Tragic Kingdom, Return of Saturn, Rock Steady and Push and Shove, helping to secure  Gwen, Tony, Tom and Adrian their place in the American rock music pantheon. The band’s massive success can be traced back to No Doubt, whose definitive new vinyl edition cements its pivotal place in pop history.
