Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the licensed soundtrack to the 1993 New Line Cinema film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, released by SBK Records on March 9, 1993.

Album information[edit]

This collection is considered much weaker than the previous two for its lack of original songs made for the film. It contains the tracks "Tarzan Boy" and "Can't Stop Rockin" which were previously released hit songs, along with the song "Turtle Power" which was a port from the first film's soundtrack, making the album seem to be a rushed project.
