The Bad Teacher Soundtrack Features Some Good Songs – 23 of Them

They didn’t release a Bad Teacher soundtrack album, but you can find all 23 songs from Bad Teacher, plus the downloads for them, here. The soundtrack is pretty much what you’d think, including a good collection of metal and hair band songs, from Judas Priest, Ronnie James Dio, Whitesnake and Joan Jett.

But there’s also an odd streak in there too, kind of like the movie itself. The soundtrack is rounded out with music from Coolio, Rooney, JT and Hall & Oates.

And what movie is complete without a little Schlittenfahrt, which as far as I can tell is an actual German Christmas song. Please, correct me if I’m wrong. The album cover looks pretty legit. A little Google Translator and, what do you know, it means sleigh ride. Well, that’s fun. The movie itself was fun at times, but dragged a bit too. I found it funny, then not funny, funny, then not funny. Not bad for a popcorn movie but I don’t think it will be jumping to the top of my queue anytime soon.

There are also some great songs in the trailers/commercials for Bad Teacher, including:

  • Beggin – Madcon (this song was popularized in the Step Up 3D soundtrack)
  • Stroke Me – Mickey Avalon (this song samples the 80s song Strokin by Billy Squire. Mickey Avalon had his big movie break when his song “What Do You Say?” was featured in the pool scene of the first Hangover.)

Here’s White Snake in all their hair band glory:

Watch out for Joan Jett, she’s a Real Wild Child:

I don’t quite get the subtitles in this concert footage, but it’s Hall & Oates, so you can’t go wrong:

And last but not least, it’s Rooney singing I Can’t Get Enough:
