Allison Hunter is a truck stop waitress who must shed her apron to save her sister from a horde of evil space rabbits.

No, this isn't a pitch from a starving screenwriter - it's the plot of the new CD-ROM game, "Space Bunnies Must Die!" due this fall from Ripcord. Described as a cross between "Tomb Raider" and "Mars Attacks," "Space Bunnies Must Die" features 3-D technology, 360-degree views, kooky characters and, of course, a collection of bizarre yet fun weapons. It's sure to be a hit.

Hence, it seems appropriate - in this day and age of record sales which are dominated by hit movie soundtracks - that hit video games have their own soundtrack albums as well. Appropriate, maybe, but senseless nonetheless. This admittedly eclectic collection of agreeably hip hits are culled from the upcoming video game of the same name. But so what? They may be great tunes but they don't play particularly well together. There's really no reason to put them together on one CD except to offer as a souvenir item for fans of the video game. Oh, well, I guess that's the point.

Contained in this collection are "Point Panic" by the SURFARIS; "Southern Culture on the Skids" by DEJA VAROOM; "Mister Psycho" by SPACE; "These Boots are Made For Walkin'" by LORETTA LYNN; "In Your Wildest Dreams" by the REVEREND HORTON HEAT; "My Girlfriend is a Waitress," by IGUANAS; "Rave On" by Buddy Holly; "Who Do You Love?" by BO DIDDLEY, "I'm a King Bee" by SLIM HARPO, "Next Door to the Blues" by ETTA JAMES; "Bold Soul Sister" by IKE & TINA TURNER; and "Born to Be Wild" by STEPPENWOLF.
