The Addams Family Values: Music from the Motion Picture album was released on Atlas Records in late 1993 to promote Addams Family Values, a sequel to the 1991 film The Addams Family.

Overview[edit]

The album features several hip-hop and R&B based cover songs of 1970s funk/soul songs by artists, including:

A remixed version of Tag Team's then-current hit "Whoomp! (There It Is)", "Addams Family (Whoomp!)", was used as the lead single.

Paramount Pictures had signed Michael Jackson to record a horror-themed song for the film and to promote it with a video. In an attempt to cope with the negative publicity from accusations of child molestation, Jackson turned to prescription drugs and had to undergo a lengthy rehabilitation. He was unable to finish the video and his song, "Is It Scary", was dropped from the film.[2] The song was included on his 1997 album Blood on the Dance Floor (HIStory in the Mix); the video project was finished, independently, as the short film Ghosts.
