The 1990 film Pump Up The Volume has a plot that goes a little
something like this: Mark (Christian Slater) is an intelligent but shy
teenager who has just moved to Arizona from the East Coast. His
parents give him a short-wave radio so he can talk to his pals, but
instead he sets up shop as pirate deejay Hard Harry, who becomes a
hero to his peers while inspiring the wrath of the local high school
principal. When one of Harry's listeners commits suicide and
Harry-inspired chaos breaks out at the school, the authorities are
called in to put a stop to Harry's broadcasts.
Soundgarden once again shares the soundtrack honors with completely unrelated artists, such as Ivan Neville. The track list is as follows:
"Heretic" is a non-album track that appeared earlier in Soundgarden's career, actually as early as 1985, on the Deep Six compilation. For that recording, however, Scott Sundquist was the drummer, so it was rerecorded in December 1988 at London Bridge in Seattle with the revised lineup (which at that time included Hiro Yamamoto on bass). It was also given a new mix by Steve Fisk. Presumably, this is the version that appears on the Pump Up The Volume soundtrack.
