Heroes & Villains (also known as The Powerpuff Girls: Heroes & Villains: Music Inspired by The Powerpuff Girls) is a 2000 album featuring music inspired by the cartoon The Powerpuff Girls.
The album includes songs from various artists, including Devo and Shonen Knife. Most songs are not directly related to the show itself. It does contain a few songs from the show and a few of the songs were used in Cartoon Network Groovies, but others simply take inspiration from the cartoon.
