The Powerpuff Girls: Heroes & Villains: Music Inspired by The Powerpuff Girls was released on May 19, 2000, on CD and audio cassette.[4] The New York Times journalist Ann Powers praised the pop album's original songs, saying, "The precocious sound these bands cultivate has never had a more appropriate niche."[5] Additionally, the album topped Billboard's children's music chart for six weeks upon its debut.[6] Heather Phares of the All Music Guide called the album "appropriately hip and funny" and stated that it is "much more than just a 'music inspired by' marketing piece."[2]

The songs are connected by spoken interludes (recorded by the show's voice cast) to form a loose storyline in which the girls mobilize to stop Mojo Jojo from destroying Townsville.

The Powerpuff Girls: Power Pop was released on August 12, 2003, on CD and audio cassette.[12] Despite positive reviews of the formerly released albums, The album earned a negative review from AllMusic's Heather Phares regarded Power Pop as a "big disappointment", saying "it's especially frustrating that they picked cookie-cutter teen pop for this album when Dexter's Laboratory: The Hip-Hop Experiment turned out so brilliantly (and featured hip-hop stars to boot)."[11] Two songs on the soundtrack, "That's What Girls Do" by No Secrets and "Powerpunk End Theme" (originally titled "The Powerpuffs Girls (End Theme)") by Bis were both featured during the end credits of The Powerpuff Girls Movie.[13]
