Perusing the track listing for the soundtrack, Howard Stern
Private Parts: The Album (Feb. 25), to Howard Stern's feature film debut,
Private Parts (Mar. 7), you're excused if you feel overtaken by a
certain musical vertigo.
Mixing the old (Deep Purple) with the new
(Marilyn Manson) and the just bizarre (Stern and the Dust Brothers), the
29-track CD (16 of the tracks are comedy bits and snippets of movie dialogue),
Stern and company have put together a soundtrack that's as all-over-the-place
as Stern's radio show used to be.
Up for the short stroke are: Rob Zombie
with Stern, "The Great American Nightmare"; LL Cool J with Flea, Dave Navarro
and Chad Smith (of the Red Hot Chili Peppers), "I Make My Own Rules"; Porno for
Pyros with Flea and Dave Navarro, "Hard Charger"; Marilyn Manson,"The Suck For
Your Solution"; Ozzy Osbourne with Type O Negative, "Pictures of Matchstick
Men" (a cover of the old Status quo song); Green Day, "Tired of Waiting for
You" (a cover of the Kinks classic recorded especially for the soundtrack); The
Ramones, "Pinhead"; Deep Purple, "Smoke on the Water"; Cheap Trick, "I Want You
To Want Me"; Ted Nugent, "Cat Scratch Fever"; Van Halen, "Jamie's Cryin'";
AC/DC, "You Shook Me All Night Long" (live); Howard Stern and Dust Brothers,
Some of the between-song bits have names like: "Pig Virus,"
"The Contest," "The Howard Stern Experience," "Crackhead Bob" and "The
Anti-Christ." Knowing that Stern fans are gluttons for punishment, the CD will
be available with four different cover designs and one lucky Sternophile will
find the Golden Ticket, a coupon hidden among a single disc in the first run
that will be good for a solid gold CD, to be delivered to the winner's home in
a Brink's truck.
