Chef Aid: The South Park Album is a 1998 soundtrack/compilation album based on the American animated comedy series South Park. Several well-known artists perform on the record, which was mainly produced by Rick Rubin. Chef Aid contains a number of songs from and inspired by the show, while other songs are largely independent from South Park. The album was released during the show's second season, shortly after the broadcast of the episode called "Chef Aid", which features many of the stars and songs that appear on the recording. Soul singer Isaac Hayes appears in character as Chef throughout the album, which mimicks a live concert.

Chef Aid: The South Park Album was made available with two collectible covers and in three different versions — "Clean", "Explicit", and "Extreme". The Explicit version contains profanities (including "fuck") and carries a Parental Advisory sticker, but it is still censored, even for lesser profanities, such as "goose shit". The Extreme version was completely uncensored.


Songs and concept

There is a variety of different kinds of songs that appear on Chef Aid: The South Park. These include songs featured in the series, and sung by South Park characters or various artists. Other songs have been inspired by the series, with some written by the song's performer artist. The remainder of the songs are largely unrelated to South Park, although some of them have appeared on the corresponding "Chef Aid" episode.

Many of the South Park-related tracks on the album were written by show co-creator Trey Parker, and are extended versions of original songs from the series. A large portion of these, such as "Chocolate Salty Balls", are sung by soul singer Isaac Hayes, in character as Chef, the school cafeteria worker who often breaks into soul songs on the show. Other characters that appear on the record include the main boys—Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny—, as well as Ned Gerblansky. As on the show, the characters are voiced by the two creators; Stan, Cartman and Ned are voiced by Trey Parker, whereas Kyle and Kenny are voiced by Matt Stone.

The album is presented as a live concert. Chef performs most of the show's original songs, and also sings some lines on most of the other tracks, as well as acting as announcer between songs.
