The film's soundtrack accurately reflects the melodic ideas prevalent in the
alternative rock scene at the time. Most of the bands perform songs that closely
resonate with the themes of the film while keeping a fast yet upbeat tone, a
sharp departure from the age of grunge, which had just reached its twilight. (It
should be noted that Angus' penchant for flannel and denim, as well as his
defeatist persona, are concepts more closely associated with grunge.) However,
several key songs are absent in the CD that was released, most notably ''Fade
into You'' by Mazzy Star, the song that was played as Angus and Melissa danced,
and ''Rubella'' by the Smoking Popes.
Weezer's initial offering, a song entitled ''Wanda (You're My Only Love)'' (or
sometimes just ''Wanda''), was written specifically for the movie but rejected
for being ''too much of a strict interpretation of the movie'' and for not
sounding enough like what was expected of Weezer at the time. The previously
written, more uptempo ''You Gave Your Love to Me Softly'' was used instead, and
the rejection of the former song was known to have hurt Weezer's singer and
songwriter Rivers Cuomo at the time. Though Weezer never properly recorded
''Wanda'', Cuomo released his 1994 demo of the song (along with the story of the
song's submission and rejection) in 2007 on the albumAlone: The Home Recordings
of Rivers Cuomo.
The unique version of ''Am I Wrong'' by Love Spit Love, mixing marching band
horns into the original version of the song which interplay well with Richard
Butler's raw vocals.
Green Day contributed ''J.A.R. (Jason Andrew Relva)'', a song written by bassist
Mike Dirnt about his friend who died in a car accident when he was 19. This song
peaked at number one on the Modern Rock Billboard charts of 1995. This song was
later released on their 2001 greatest hits album, International Superhits.
Meanwhile, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong co-produced ''Back to You'' by
the Riverdales with producer Mass Giorgini, which was featured during the dance
sequence at the high prom in the film.
The music supervisors for Angus were Elliot Cahn and Jeff Saltzman, who, at the
time, also managed two of the soundtrack's artists: Green Day and The Muffs.
