Marilyn Manson aren’t the only modern rockers revisiting ’80s hits for the soundtrack to “Not Another Teen Movie,” which comes out December 4. In addition to monsieur Manson’s creepy version of “Tainted Love,” which was a top 10 hit for Soft Cell in 1982, the disc will feature Goldfinger covering Nena’s “99 Red Balloons,” Saliva tackling the Pretenders’ “Message of Love,” Mest covering Modern English’s “I Melt With You,” Muse reworking the Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” Good Charlotte playing Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s “If You Leave” and Phantom Planet covering Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby.”

Both Depeche Mode and New Order receive double-exposure on the disc. Depeche Mode’s “But Not Tonight” is covered by Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland and “Never Let Me Down Again” is played by the Smashing Pumpkins. New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” is reworked by Stabbing Westward, and Orgy’s career-breaking version of “Blue Monday” is included as well.

“Not Another Teen Movie” was directed by Joel Gallen and stars Jaime Pressly, Chyler Leigh and Eric Jungmann.
