Every generation has its signature couples: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Carly Simon and James Taylor, Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. Gen X was gifted Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson, whose leaked videotape sealed them together forever. But their mid-1990s love affair was also a time of serious bangers, as hair metal and synth-pop gave way to grunge and EDM. Listening to all the songs on Pam & Tommy’s soundtrack is a big slice of throwback heaven, full of the best bops of the era.

Music is a natural center for the Pam & Tommy series; after all, one half of the couple is one of the most famous drummers of the hair metal age. But their courtship also took place in a mainly pre-internet time, when clubbing was the central hub of celebrity life in California. So although there are multiple moments when Sebastian Stan’s Tommy Lee works it out on the drum kit, the vast majority of the songs that float around in the background are club jams for the dance floor or sunny bops of the Hollywood that once was.
