Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Album is a soundtrack album featuring music from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. The album was released October 19, 1999.
The album features many of the songs heard in the background or on stage at the Bronze during the first three seasons of Buffy. Particularly noteable is a track by Four Star Mary, who performs the music for Oz's band Dingoes Ate My Baby on the show. An orchestral score by series composer Christophe Beck is also included. The songs "Teenage FBI" and "Temptation Waits" do not actually appear in the show.
A few tracks (such as Hepburn's "I Quit") somehow never made it onto the show, and the album has a few puzzling omissions, such as Cibo Matto's memorable "Spoon" and "Sugar Water" from the episode "When She Was Bad" and Sarah McLachlan's "Full of Grace" from the episode "Becoming, Part Two."
The album is made up mostly of tracks by little-known artists, though some better known ones, such as Garbage and Alison Krauss, are also featured.
The insert contains a slight error: Duke Erikson of Garbage is credited as "D. Folkson" instead of "D. Erikson".
