Rhino is releasing the action stuffed soundtrack to the POWERPUFF GIRLS. On July 18, 2000, "Heroes and Villains" will hit shelves with music performed by top alternative artists.

Artists such as David Byrne, Devo, Frank Black, Shonen Knife, Apples In Stereo, Optiganally Yours, Kormeda, Cornelius, The Sugarplastic, Dressy Bessy and Bis will be featured. Series creator Craig McCracken set out to find bands that inspire him to participate on the compilation. "I love these bands, and listening to their work inspires my work," said McCracken. "Each song on the album focuses on a different aspect of THE POWERPUFF GIRLS, and together they tell a story. From Townsville in danger to the day finally being saved." The album will carry a suggested retail price of US$16.98.
