Set on the last day of camp in the hot summer of 1981, Wet Hot American Summer follows a group of counselors who are each trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends. The entire summer of pent-up sexual frustrations, unresolved post-traumatic stress, pending separations and of course, the talent show, all weigh heavily on the minds and groins of counselors and campers alike. Created by David Wain and Michael Showalter, Wet Hot American Summer features some of today’s biggest stars in their best comedic roles (Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, and more).
A cult classic revered by its dedicated fans, Wet Hot American Summer has a fun and adventurous score composed by Theodore Shapiro and Craig Wedren. From the iconic 80s montage anthem "Higher & Higher”, to the militaristic pomp of "Gene’s Address” and Mr. Blue & Chubb Rock’s hip hop jam “Summer in America”, not to mention appearances by some of everyone’s favorite counselors, the Wet Hot American Summer Original Score & Music album perfectly captures the heart and soul of Camp Firewood’s zany adventures.
Never before released on any format, the Wet Hot American Summer Original Score & Music, which drops in celebration of the film’s 15th anniversary, resonates as a must-have for soundtrack and first-pressing collectors alike. Remastered from the original sources for the best quality sound.
