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

Universal

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.

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

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

Nsync Claims They Were Better Than The Backstreet Boys And We Are Not Okay With It

When I was growing up, there was one band that was my one desire. That's right, Backstreet Boys were my everything. I knew every word, I knew a lot of the dance moves, and I could still tell you all of their full names. However, the 90s were a troubling time. Everywhere you looked, people were trying to make something controversial. They didn't want to just enjoy that glorious pop music, they wanted to pit the bands against each other. When *NSYNC entered the pop music game, everyone had to pick a side. Were you loyal to BSB, or were

The Spice Girls Are Apparently Making A Cartoon Superhero Movie And We're Ready For It

When the Spice Girls met up a several weeks ago, we all lost our collective minds. There was no patience involved, because we all knew that if they were all hanging out, something big must have been happening and we were 100% here for it. Well, we've had our hearts broken by Posh Spice herself when she told us that we weren't going to see a Spice Girls reunion tour, insisting that we had all gotten way too far ahead of ourselves. But she did seem to know that there would be something coming. “There’s something so strong in
