300 is the soundtrack to the 2007 film 300. It was composed by Tyler Bates and was released on March 6, 2007, three days before the film opened for public viewing.

The lyrics sung are in Greek and Latin. The opening lines of the track "Come and Get Them" are "Ferto! – Parte to!" (φέρτο! – πάρτε το!) translating as "bring it! – take it!". It is said that Leonidas exclaimed Molōn Labe! (Μολὼν Λαβέ!) when asked by Xerxes to surrender their weapons, which is translated in English as "Come and Get Them".

There exists a normal edition and a deluxe edition containing photos and artwork from the film. The soundtrack debut at #74 on the Billboard Top 200 and rose to #52 in its second week. It has sold 37,638 copies to date.

The song used in the trailers of the movie, Nine Inch Nails's "Just Like You Imagined", is absent from the soundtrack. The song "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse is used in one of the movie's DVD advertisements.[citation needed]

The track, "Come And Get Them" was used for the trailer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.[citation needed]

The track "Message for the Queen" is partially based an old folk song from the Balkans, commonly known as Zajdi, zajdi, jasno sonce.

300 was orchestrated and conducted by Nick Glennie-Smith.
