Celebrity Deathmatch

MTV's "Celebrity Deathmatch" is pure couch potato, low-culture fantasia -- a star-crossed freak show that juxtaposes "Jerry Springer," "Wrestlemania," and "Total Request Live," and ups the absurdity factor to decidedly stoner-friendly levels. Yet it rarely offers the low-culture catharsis of this 15-cut soundtrack CD. Marilyn Manson dons his best Alice Cooper togs for the frothing bloodbath "Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes." Shuvel, Sevendust, and the appropriately cast cartoon-rockers Powerman 5000 drop the rap-rock rave-ups that remain all the rage with America's younger set nowadays. And Eminem, Canibus, Rakim, and an especially vicious Kool Keith bring quick-witted flow and appropriate battle rhymes. But the best track here is one of the more obscure: Prince Paul's remix of the Last Emperor's "Secret Wars" is a laundry list of fantasy MC battles that'll have hip-hopper's mouths watering for the real deal. Now, why don't the semioticians at MTV get to work on that show?
