Mortal Kombat: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the compilation album which accompanied the 1995 film Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat was nominated for the Motion Picture Sound Editors, USA Golden Reel Award.[citation needed] 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 its popularity inspired the album Mortal Kombat: More 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.
