Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey Soundtrack and Songs

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey Motion Picture Soundtrack

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: Music from the Motion Picture is the soundtrack to the 1991 Orion Pictures film Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. It was released by Interscope Records on July 9, 1991.

Many of these songs, such as Faith No More’s “The Perfect Crime” and Megadeth’s “Go To Hell”, help paint the darker tone of the film. Many of the contributing artists have a cameo of some form in the film. “Shout it Out” was recorded while Slaughter was on the road during their Stick It Live tour. The Winger track “Battle Stations” was written by front man Kip Winger after reading the script for the film and recorded shortly after the band returned from their first European tour. Neverland’s song “Drinking Again” was not used in the film, but was a substitute for another Neverland song “For the Love (of Music)”. However the intro from “Drinking Again” was used for a television promo for the film. Both songs were released one month prior on Neverland’s self-titled debut album. The version of “God Gave Rock ‘n Roll to You II” is not the one that plays at the film’s end as it lacks the intro by Steve Vai and the sound of girls chanting the chorus as the song fades to end.
