The Bogus Journey soundtrack can be summed up in two words . . . it rocks!  We're talking some of the biggest names in the rock and heavy metal business . . . Megadeth, Winger, Slaughter . . . KISS!  Can't do much better than that!  Oddly enough the songs don't seem as tied into the movie as the Excellent Adventure songs were (with the exception of God Gave Rock and Roll to You II, which will forever be the Bill & Ted anthem thanks to their raucous Battle of the Bands finale and the inclusion of Steve Vai's rocking guitar introduction in the film).  There's little doubt the songs are heavier and darker than the songs from the previous film, but considering the darker content of the movie itself this only makes sense.  The odd man out on this album would likely be Tommy the Cat by Primus, as Primus fans aren't necessarily heavy metal fans, but it's a very cool song which also features the amazing voice of Tom Waites!  Showdown is an interesting piece by a little known 80's band called Love on Ice.  And then of course there is The Reaper Rap . . . Steve Vai's amazing music with excerpts taken from the film's dialogue . . . classic!
