The new teen comedy American Pie 2, simply put, has one of the best movie soundtracks I've ever heard.

It includes lots of great punk and pop-punk songs, some of them old favorites, and some new unreleased songs. This soundtrack also has introduced me to the punk bands Left Front Tire, and Jettingham. Out of the fifteen tracks, eight of them are punk, which makes this soundtrack worth reviewing, I think. And here are those nine songs, one by one:

1. "Everytime I Look For You"--blink-182: One of the best and catchiest songs from the band's "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket." CD.

2. "Scumbag"--Green Day: This is a song that was originally included on their "Warning Pt. 1" single. It's quick and catchy, and the guitars and vocals sound great.

3. "Bring You Down"--Left Front Tire: Definitely one of my favorite songs on this CD, and it's also included on LFT's CD, "Social Icon" (2000). This was the first LFT song I'd ever heard, and it's fantastic. All the instruments sound great, as do the vocals. I really like the lead singer's voice.

4. "Good (For A Woman")--Alien Ant Farm: This is a brand new song from the punk/metal band. It's not as good as their popular singles, "Movies," and "Smooth Criminal," but it's still a well-done song.

5. "Cheating"--Jettingham: I don't much like the lead singer's voice, but the song is a very catchy pop-punk tune.

6. "Smokescreen"--Flying Blind: An extremely catchy and poppy song that starts and slows down a few times during the song, which I found kind of creative.

7. "Phoebe Cates"--Fenix*TX: One of the best songs from "Lechuza," and it fits this soundtrack better then any other songs from that CD. I really like the lyrics, and the chorus is great.

8. "Fat Lip"--Sum 41: A big hit that is currently one of my favorite songs. No pop-punk fan could hate this song.

So there you have it. Eight great songs that help make this one of my favorite movie soundtracks ever. And by the way, it also includes great music from alternative rock bands American Hi-Fi, 3 Doors Down, Oleander, The Exit, and others.

So, if your a fan of pop-punk, or at least modern rock, you definitely should check out this soundtrack as soon as possible. It definitely won't be leaving my CD player for a while.

My band had the unfortunate job of opening for Jettingham last month.

They were absolutely, hands down, the worst band I've seen or heard in a very, very long time.

Their singer is a fucking jackass, too.

This doesn't sound like a very good soundtrack - so I'm not supporting it or "pop-punk" or "punk wannabe" acts or anything - but - I'm tired of all of you who bitch at bands because too many people like them, I mean what the hell? "Hey these guys kick ass! oh wait .. you've heard of them too? Oh no they're on MTV now! I hate these guys! They suck, what a bunch of posers!" I mean come on, I bet you all hate osker because they're on the crazy/beautiful soundtrack too. bastards.

What were you thinking when you reviewed this cd. It's a soundtrack for starters, and it's not even a punk soundtrack at that! Just because it has about 2 punk bands, and 6 other "punk" bands, doesnt mean its punk. There are a lot more songs on the cd, and im sure they arn't punk.

alien ant farm is probably the worst excuse for a musical act Ive seen in a while. Their trying to be funny but it comes off as being very very retarded. And I heard that crap about them getting kicked off the warped tour too, H2o could kick their ass easy.

Anonymous (August 18, 2001)

none of those bands are fucking pop-punk. listen to a screeching weasel or a connie dungs record.

derrherrrherrr sum 41 is a must like....blahhhh , i like pop punk and i can't stand them or alot of the bands you listed, except for fenix tx who i still like, this soundtrack has like a few decent songs but i wouldn't buy it, especially not for alien ant farm, derrherrherrr their punk rock at the best.....nahh thats cool, i'll stick to cd's that are good and stay away from dumb soundtracks and these reviews

FAKESMILE (August 17, 2001)

My mum fuckin likes this!!! Well, she also likes some of my NOFX records...And 3 Ramones songs and 1 Misfits song...Still This CD Sucks...Probably...It's for a no-content hollywood cash cow...nothin to do with punk... My Grandma likes it...She's kinda dead and she was already deaf before she died

sickboi (August 17, 2001)

I read Kevin kicked Alien Ant Farm off Warped because they were bitching that H2O was on the main stage and they weren't. Fuckin one hit wonders. Of course the news was from Buddyhead so I don't know how much stock I'd put in it...

coldjuly (August 16, 2001)

Ithivk angus was pretty fuckin funny too....but not the best soundtrack...good but there are better out there. AP2 is sure as hell not one of them.

Anonymous (August 16, 2001)

yeah angus was the best soundtrack ever- muffs, pansy division, and one of the better green day songs

coldjuly (August 15, 2001)

Yeah godmoney and the chase have kick ass soundtracks.

sickboi (August 15, 2001)

Anyone ever seen the soundtrack for Godmoney? Thats a kick ass soundtrack....AFI, The Descendents, Guttermouth, oh and the soundtrack for The Chase, I've never seen it 'cause its out of print but it has NOFX, Rancid, Bad Religion and others.

Ugg mainstream bad underground good

Im guessing that this is gonna be an ok soundtrack not great

Anonymous (August 15, 2001)

Is the reviewer serious? Look at all those bands. It's all mainstream. What the hell. How can this be one of the best movie soundtracks?

JoKe2K (August 15, 2001)

This soundtrack can lick my balls. There is no movie out there right now that has more of a trendy following to it... sure it's funny, but with a soundtrack like this, expect a few more girls and guys with LFO currently in disc 4 in their stereo at your next Warped tour.

coldjuly (August 15, 2001)

Nah, the soundtrack for glory daze fuckin ruled...bad religion, NOFX, the vandals, the movie is about 5 years old and is still great..but the soundtrack is the best by far. But the AP2 soundtrack..ahhh its ok

Anonymous (August 15, 2001)

JETTINGHAM STINKS! That's weird someone who commented is from FORT WAYNE just like me.... And as for the Angus soundtrack, it is great....weezer, green day and of course, the best track on there...the smoking popes who STILL rock my world long after their demise...Oh yeah, Abraham, errrr Jettingham suck a fat dick...god i hate that band.....they WANT to suck....

funny movie, shitty soundtrack except for green day

PorkPie (August 14, 2001)

booooooooo!

sickboi (August 14, 2001)

thumbs down....Angus had a pretty decent soundtrack, it was that J.A.R. song by Green Day that was supposed to be on Insomniac and a cool Weezer song (You gave your love to me softly, i think)

coldjuly (August 14, 2001)

I didnt even scroll down because I know all of the comments are bad. As far as major movie soundtracks go, This is ok. a little below average....but what can I say....just your typical teenage movie soundtrack.

punky (August 14, 2001)

Hey I like pop punk, but i don't link fat lip by sum 41...or is it maybe that i don't like pop punk enough...

Anonymous (August 14, 2001)

Jettingham is trash. They are from my city and they are together for like a year and sign this big fucking contract because they have the in sound. They also write shitty songs.

Anonymous (August 14, 2001)

This album sound like it gets the fog-horn...."whe-whoo"...my stars are for green day...

Anarchy_Adam (August 14, 2001)

Wrong rating. I'm drunk.

Anarchy_Adam (August 14, 2001)

This is the stupidest stream of comments I've ever seen. Are you people four? The soundtrack blows too. It's totally cashing in on the flavour of the week that is mediocore.

Soundtracks are pretty lame, with the exception of a few like Saturday Night Fever.....I think I'll listen to that now.
