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 fastest selling comedy albums and has officially sold 1,610,000 units and was certified 2x 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 for which featured Beavis and Butt-head meeting a live-action Cher in virtual reality. Beavis and Butt-head also performed the ballad "Come to Butt-head".

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

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.

The song features guitar strings, different from the original.
