Rammstein appear in the movie as themselves performing the track that opens the rock CD, "Feuer Frei," in the opening scene of the film.

The first hip hop single comes from Universal's captivating sometimes, controversial and always charasmatic rising southern rap street minister Pastor Troy, entitle "Are We Cuttin" featuring newcomer Ms. Jade and produced by renowed hip hop producer Timbaland. Other hip hop heavyweights include Nelly, The Cash Money Millionaire's clique Lil' Wayne and the Big Tymers, Mr. Cheeks and R&B soul diva Joi.

The 10-track hip hop cd features Universal Records hip-hop heavyweights Big Tymers "Still Fly," Mr. Cheeks' "Lights, Camera Action," Nelly's "Stick Out Ya Wrist," Lil Wayne's "Look At Me," and Connected for Life" by Mack 10. The cd also introduces new Universal acts Posta Boy and Rashad (featured together on "I'm Okay") and vocalist Dani Stevenson --- already known for her performance on Nelly's "Hot In Herre" on "Yo Yo Yo." Innovative soulstress Joi rounds out the set with the saucy, erotic "Lick," a track also found on her Universal Records debut, Star Kitty's Revenge.
