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! It was pretty much the perfect parody of both music movies and teen comedies, and it's as awesome now as it was back then.
Of course, what would be a movie abut a rock band be without some killer music to go along with it? Thankfully, Josie and the Pussycats had an absolutely rockin' soundtrack, full of awesome grrrrl-rock from the band itself.
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.
Despite the fact that the movie didn't find a lot of love either critically or financially, the soundtrack actually went Gold, selling over 500,000 copies! Unfortunately, nowadays the soundtrack is notoriously hard to find, being out of print and also not having been released for digital purchase.
However, if you didn't get a chance to buy it back then, don't fret, because it's being re-released in the most perfect way possible.
