Mortal Kombat: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the compilation album which accompanied the 1995 film Mortal Kombat. Three songs from Stabbing Westward were included in the movie, but were omitted from the soundtrack: "Lost", "Lies" and "Can't Happen Here", all of which appear on the album Ungod. Metal vocalist Burton C. Bell is the only artist on the album to appear twice; once with his primary band Fear Factory, and again fronting the side-project GZR.

Mortal Kombat was nominated for the Motion Picture Sound Editors, USA Golden Reel Award. It won the BMI Film & TV Awards BMI Film Music Award.[2] The soundtrack went Platinum[3] in 10 days reaching No. 10 on the Billboard 200,[4] and was included in the 2011 Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition as the "most successful video game spin-off soundtrack album". Its popularity inspired the album Mortal Kombat: More Kombat.
