Meet the Deedles: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released in conjunction with the eponymous film from 1998.


The soundtrack notably includes the song "American Girls", the only officially-released song by Homie, Rivers Cuomo's short-lived side project. In Weezine issue #13, Karl Koch said of the soundtrack appearance:

Also out, more recently, is the soundtrack to a "Meet the Deedles," a particularly bad Disney movie which enjoyed a 1 or 2 week stay in theaters back in March. The disc includes the quite cool "American Girls" by a band called Homie. Homie is what Rivers finally decided to call his "Boston band" from last fall, and exists to showcase his old and new "goofy" non-Weezer material. The recording on the CD also features Matt on back-up vocals and as a co-producer, as well as drumming (actually a drum loop) by Pat. Rounding out the band, and supplying the boisterous guitar playing, are members of Soul Coughing; Cake. The rest of the CD is all "modern ska," which can be a problem if you don't like it and just paid 13 bucks on a CD that's 90% comprised of it. On the other hand if you do like what they call ska these days, you're in for a major treat.
