Stereo Review (3/94, p.96) - Performance: Cool When It Doesn't Suck / Recording: Sucks When It Isn't Cool - "...The steady rocking petulance of Nirvana and the staccato, metaloid psychological confusion of Megadeath are a perfect match for the desperate identity crises of the two young protagonists..."

Tied together by a non-linear ideology dreamt up by two dim-witted cartoon characters, THE BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD EXPERIENCE is a study in extremist pop music tastes, so you either like it or you don't. Beavis and Butt-head like their music hard ("Yeah! Yeah!"), and they like their music loud ("Yes! Yes!"); and unlike the average fan they don't discriminate. So punk (Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers covering the Stooges) comfortably rubs shoulders with arena metal (Aerosmith, Jackyl) and hip-hop (Run DMC, and the too funky Sir Mix-A-Lot), while the hosts engage in between-song patter and dirty jokes. Most tracks can be found only on this compilation, and some of them wouldn't make sense anywhere else. Can you imagine that somebody actually got Cher to sing "cause you got me and Butt-head I've got you?" It's all priceless...if you're into this sort of thing.
