If you were a teen in the early 2000s, chances are you almost definitely heard a lot about 2001's Josie and the Pussycats.

Based on the Archie Comics rock band of the same name, the movie focused on the titular band's struggles not only to succeed, but also to stop a conspiracy to send subliminal messages through music!

They were performed by Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley, with the three lead actresses from the film adding in backup vocals. It even featured contributions from artists like Bif Naked, Counting Crows' Adam Dunst, and Fountains of Wayne instrumentalist Adam Schlesinger.

Seriously, get your wallets ready for this one...
