1. Repo Man - Iggy Pop
2. TV Party - Black Flag
3. Istitutionalized - Suicidal Tendencies
4. Coup D'Etat - The Circle Jerks
5. El Clavo Y La Cruz - The Plugz
6. Pablo Picasso - Burning Sensations

If you could appreciate the wonderfully bizarre essence of the film "Repo Man," you'll be able to appreciate the same qualities on the movie's soundtrack. Ranging from classic 80s hardcore/punk tunes (like Suicidal Tendencies' "Institutionalized" and Black Flag's "TV Party") to hysterical acoustic versions of punk songs that were not meant to be played acoustically at all but yield fantastic results anyway (The Circle Jerks' "When The S**t Hits The Fan") to hot and dusty roadtrip-through-redneck-town car stereo music (The Plugz's "Reel Ten"), you can't go wrong with this album. It's weirdly eerie, like a science fiction TV show that was made before you were born, while other tracks are fast, loud, and utterly hilarious. Yet with the diversity of the material on this disc, there's a certain cohesiveness, like it's all meant to be together. Music that'll make you smile, rock out, and wonder what's really in the back of that Chevy Malibu. Definitely a worthy buy for fans of the movie.
