Good 1990s Movie Soundtracks (Alt. Rock)?

What are some good soundtracks from 1990s movies with lots of alternative rock on them? Several come to mind, but I would like to hear some more.

Empire Records
Lost Highway

Any input is appreciated.

Here are my favorite soundtracks from the 90s:

An American Werewolf in Paris
1. Mouth - Bush (The Stingray mix)
2. Psychosis - The Refreshments
3. Normal Town - Better Than Ezra (remix)
4. Never Gonna Give You Up - Cake
5. Sick Love - Redd Kross
6. Break The Glass - The Suicide Machines
7. Human Torch - Fastball
8. Soup Kitchen - Eva Trout
9. Hardset Head - Skinny Puppy
10. Turned Blue - Caroline's Spine
11. Downtime - Fat
12. Adrenaline - Phunk Junkeez
13. If I Could (What I Would Do) - Vanessa Daou
14. Loverbeast In Paris - Smoove Diamonds
15. Theme From "An American Werewolf In Paris" - Wilbert Hirsch

I Know What You Did Last Summer (only $1.99!)
Many of these songs are 70s era songs, sung in alternative style, if that makes sense. Very good CD.
1. Hush - Kula Shaker
2. Summer Breeze - Type O Negative
3. D.U.I. - The Offspring
4. Kid - Green Apple Quickstep
5. This Ain't The Summer Of Love - L7
6. Losin' It - Soul Asylum
7. Hey Bulldog - Toad The Wet Sproket
8. My Baby's Got The Strangest Ways - Southern Culture On The Skids
9. Waterfall - The Din Pedals
10. Clumsy - Our Lady Peace
11. One Hundred Days - Flick
12. Great Life - Goatboy
13. 2Wicky - Hooverphonic
14. Don't Mean Anything - Adam Cohen
15. Proud - Korn

Reality Bites
1. My Sharona - The Knack (Dave Jerden remix)
2. Spin The Bottle - Juliana Hatfield Three
3. Bed Of Roses - The Indians
4. When You Come Back To Me - World Party
5. Going, Going, Gone - The Posies
6. Stay - Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories
7. All I Want Is You - U2
8. Locked Out - Crowded House
9. Spinning Around Over You - Lenny Kravitz
10. I'm Nuthin' - Ethan Hawke
11. Turnip Farm - Dinosaur Jr.
12. Revival! - Me Phi Me
13. Tempted - Squeeze ('94 version)
14. Baby I Love Your Way - Big Mountain

One other good one, if you like Tom Petty, is the soundtrack to She’s The One (which is entirely by Tom Petty).

When shopping for soundtracks, be sure to check out Second Spin. Not too many people go out looking for soundtracks (their loss), so you can pick up quite a few at low prices there (like the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" soundtrack for $1.99).

Hey, I absolutely love the Rushmore soundtrack -- it's probably my all-time favorite soundtrack, but it's instrumentals and (mostly) 60's British Invasion songs. I recommend it highly, but you're not going to hear anything by anybody who ever wore flannel for anything except warmth. Bottle Rocket may be the same, too, but I'm not positive about that.

If I recall correctly, So I Married An Axe Murderer had a decent soundtrack -- I think it may have been the first soundtrack to include the La's version of "There She Goes"... but not the last.

Pretty much everything here is already listed, but Boys is a good soundtrack as well.
