"This film did not gain as much attention as the predecessor when it was theatrically released in the winter of 1993-94. Like the soundtrack to the first film,there are previously released songs and new ones. The previously released songs are the Village People's YMCA,their 1978 hit,which was not listed on the album(the 13th and final track). Also there Norman Greenbaum's one-hit wonder from 1970,SPIRIT IN THE SKY,Joan Jett and the Blackhearts' 1981 hit,I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL,Bad Company's CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF YOUR LOVE and Golden Earring's RADAR LOVE. There are excellent covers of Superstar,a hit for the Carpenters,performed by Superfan,which is the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde and an unknown(at least to me) male vocalist. There also Robert Plant covering the 60's hit LOUIE LOUIE,written by the late Richard Berry. There are live versions of Aerosmith's DUDE(LOOKS LIKE A LADY) and SHUT UP AND DANCE. Aerosmith appeared in the film performing those songs,actually on tour at the time of filming,promoting their GET A GRIP album. Other excellent performances by 4 Non Blondes and the Edgar Winter Group."
Party on Wayne

"OK there are three ways you can look at such a release.
1) Does the film work. If so it will give you a feel good vibe that will make you more receptive to the soundtrack - and let's face if if you didn't like the movie you wouldn't buy the soundtrack anyway. And in this case the movie works. Wayne and Garth are rockheads who realise they are uncool yet are at the same time certain of their coolness to their chosen peer group. And this is a pretty appealing concept to most of humanity I'd wager.
2) Do the tunes work. Often in a movie a song will fit but without the visual stimuli it doesn't work. So for the soundtrack to work the tunes have to stand up for themselves. In this case most of the tunes do work to a reasonable standard.
3) Are the tracks aligned properly. This is a tricky one. The tracks have to be compiled so that there is some flow despite the myriad of bands on display. One 'feel' has to seque into the next and too many show tunes in a row will kill off the listeners interest. For this album the compiling is fine - a careful blend of genres and slow/fast numbers.
I've put the same review down on both Waynes World soundtracks because the same can be pretty much said for both. The best advice I can give you is to firstly look at the track listing - hey your not stupid, if you like the bands and songs and dug the movie then you can pretty much make up your mind based on the track listing. Apart from that try to track down the release that had both Waynes World soundtracks in a double jewel case."
