I Want My Crabby Patties! The Rockin’ Spongebob Squarepants Soundtrack

Joining an illustrious group of cool rock and roll kids’ cartoons (the Banana Splits, Sesame Street, Beatles Toons, Flinstones and School House Rock to name just a few), I just received the press release announcing the line-up of the new Sponge Bob Squarepants soundtrack and it looks pretty cool to say the least. If you cringe when buying those Raffi or Barney CDs for your kids, this might put you in a better frame of mind:

1. The Spongebob Squarepants Theme”-performed by Avril Lavigne
2. “SpongeBob & Patrick Confront The Psychic Wall Of Energy”-The Flaming Lips (new song written for film)
3. “Just A Kid” by Wilco (new song for film)
4. “The Goofy Goober Song” by Mike Simpson with Spongebob & Patrick
5. “Prince Paul’s Bubble Party” performed by Prince Paul with Wordsworth
6. “Bikini Bottom” by Electrocute (written for/inspired by film)
7. “It’s The Best Day Ever” by Spongebob Squarepants (brand new previously unreleased)
8. “They Will Soon Discover” by The Shins (new song written for the film)
9. “Ocean Man” by Ween
10. “Under My Rock” by Patrick Starfish (brand new/previously unreleased)
11. “Goofy Goober Rock” by Tom Rothrock featuring Jim Wise
12. “Now That We’re Men” performed by Spongebob, Patrick & The Monsters
13. “You Better Swim” by Motorhead (redone to fit Spongebob world)
14. “The Jellyfish Song by the Jellyfish Band” by Plus Tech Squeezebox (written for/inspired by film)
