The Beavis and Butt-Head Experience is a compilation album, released in 1993 by Geffen Records. The name is a reference to Jimi Hendrix's original band, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. It is one of the best selling comedy albums and has sold 1,610,000 units as of May 2014. It was certified double platinum by the RIAA in the United States.[2][3]


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 which featured Beavis and Butt-Head meeting a live-action Cher via computer-generated imagery. Beavis and Butt-Head also performed the slow jam "Come to Butt-Head".

The album contains a hidden track. After a period of silence following "I've Got You Babe", a reprise of "Come to Butt-Head" starts at 5:08, in which Beavis and Butt-Head are joined by rapper Positive K.

The album's liner notes featured drawings of Beavis and Butt-Head adapted as a variety of other characters, including hippies, old women, Hasidic Jews and Captain Picard and Commander Riker of the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In 2016, the album was reissued on vinyl, in picture disc form.
