Overview[edit]

The album features a variety of musical genres, mostly hard rock and heavy metal bands. Many of the songs are intercut with commentary by Beavis and Butt-head. They are joined by Cher on a cover of "I Got You Babe", the music video for which featured Beavis and Butt-head meeting a live-action Cher in virtual reality.
