Overview

Devo founder and RugRats musical director Mark Mothersbaugh has gainfully employed both the TV series and film's character voices and a slew of old new wave buddies on this soundtrack, which consists largely of specially written material very much in the mood of the edgy children's show. Elvis Costello and his wife, Cait O'Riordan, contribute "I Throw My Toys Around," which is performed by No Doubt with Costello chiming in here and there; he probably earned more money for this track on a platinum-selling soundtrack than he did for his Burt Bacharach album. There are also appropriately written tracks by Lisa Loeb and Blackstreet, but the bulk of the songs are Mothersbaugh's. One highlight is "The World Is Something New to Me," in which a "We Are the World" chorus including Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Gordan Gano (Violent Femmes), the B-52's' Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, and Cindy Wilson, Lenny Kravitz, Beck, Jakob Dylan, and Iggy Pop reflect on infancy. Others include Cheryl Chase, the voice of RugRats villainess Angelica, performing Mothersbaugh's "A Baby Is a Gift from a Bob" and Blondie's "One Way or Another" with some new lyrics, and Busta Rhymes' "On Your Marks, Get Set, Ready Go!," a rap about our favorite RugRats character, the Godzilla-like Reptar. Of course, Devo turns up playing the old hit "Witch Doctor." The result is a romp in keeping with the tone of the show and the film.
