Make It Sweet was an album by the alternative rock band MilkCan, released on June 19, 1999. It acted as the soundtrack to Um Jammer Lammy. Instead of featuring music taken directly from the game, the album features music performed by MilkCan with vocals by Michele Burks as Katy Kat. On a few tracks, most notably "Power Off! Power On!", "Baby Baby!!", and "Taste of Teriyaki!!", Katy shares the vocals with the masters in the game.

In November 1999; Um Jammer Lammy (Original Soundtrack), with the original music from the game was released.

In the USA, the album was not released due to the commercial failure yet critical success of Um Jammer Lammy. Because of that, the album was put for download on the Internet for free.

Critical response to the album was mixed. Some fans praise the album for having an individuality, while some panned the album due to its "shrillness" or the fact that Katy now takes over the vocals.

In 2000, on MilkCan's now-defunct band site (MilkCan.com; can be mentioned on "Radio Signal Jam"), the fictional band members gave their own reasons on why to buy the album via video. Ma-San's reason is unknown, as she didn't have any subtitles. Lammy's and Katy's reasons were that the album was good in their opinions.

The WTF Records reissue includes released bonus tracks over the decades from 2002 to 2006, was released on 2016.
