While reading Steven Hyden's earnest tribute to Counting Crows and Nirvana, I came upon an interesting tidbit. The Judgment Night soundtrack was released that same fateful month of 1993. The insanely weird soundtrack to a forgettable movie which I never saw, the Judgment Night soundtrack sought to capitalize on the rap-rock phenomenon before it really existed. Featuring team-ups like Sonic Youth with Cypress Hill or Biohazard and Onyx, Judgment Night is an strange '90s relic that serves well as the butt of many, many jokes.
And it totally rules! Some of it, that is. Check out this combo of Seattle powerhouses Mudhoney and Sir Mix-a-Lot.
The first line of this Slayer/Ice T jam is, "Our government is fucked," which seems prescient.
Teenage Fanclub and De La Soul make for a lighthearted, feel-good combo.
