Some movies are so cherished by fans that anything else related to them is easily overlooked. Such is the case with the Friday soundtrack, a solid collection of rugged party jams that's been pushed to the back of people's memories thanks to the movie itself being so damn hilarious.

The next time you throw a house party, throw this collection on and see how well it's stood the test of time. Dr. Dre's "Keep Their Heads Ringin'," Tha Alkaholiks' "Coast II Coast," and Ice Cube's "Friday" should keep those party guests in good, uptempo spirits—if not, you can always pop in the Friday DVD. It works every time.
