Editors’ Notes If you've ever pondered the origin of the expletive "Dammit Janet," this original soundtrack to the 1975 cult classic musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show takes the credit. Back in the mid-‘70s punk rock had just started to fuel the music underground, so a film (and accompanying soundtrack) this subversive was unarguably too far ahead of its time for the mainstream to take notice. But from the opening tongue-in-cheek number "Science Fiction / Double Feature," it's evident that the entire concept may have been tailored exclusively for the counterculture, though many fans hold New York City's Waverly Theatre responsible for catapulting the film into its cult status by showing weekend midnight screenings and encouraging audience participation. Two years before Meat Loaf hit with Bat Out Of Hell, he sang the ‘50s inspired "Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul" here. It's equally interesting to hear a young and then unknown Susan Sarandon sing the coquettish "Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me" and if listening to a young Tim Curry sing "Sweet Transvestite" doesn't induce laughter, you may want to have a doctor check your funny bone. The boogie friendly "Time Warp" yielded a minor hit on now defunct freeform radio formats, as it's easily the catchiest song here.
