Album: Judgment Night (Soundtrack)
Baby got…grunge? The epic multiplatinum soundtrack to the 1993 semi-thriller Judgment Night remains a cornerstone of the rock-rap foundation—all 11 tracks were original collabos between rappers and rockers: Slayer and Ice-T, Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill, and De La Soul and Teenage Fanclub with Tom Petty and Electric Light Orchestra’s Jeff Lynne, among others, got together for a whole album of memorable mashups highlighted by this least-likely-to-succeed Seattle-meets-Seattle spanker. Mudhoney never achieved the breakthrough commercial success of some of their old Pacific NW heroin homies, but this was their time to shine. While Mix announces on the track that he “just lost my street credibility,” it’s a worthy sacrifice. Bangin’.
