"Go Go Power Rangers" is a single by Ron Wasserman who recorded the song as "Aaron Waters - The Mighty RAW". It was released by Saban Records (now Saban Music Group) on CD and cassette formats in the US on December 2, 1994, and in the UK December 14, 1994. The song serves as the opening theme for the first three seasons of the original Power Rangers series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The song, with a slight altered lyrics, was also used for the mini-series Alien Rangers. The titular refrain "Go Go Power Rangers" has become a popular catchphrase associated with the show, and has been used in several other themes for the series.
The song was composed and produced within a few hours after Wasserman viewed early footage of the original series.
A cover of the song, performed by Noam Kaniel, has been used as the show's intro theme since 2011, starting with the 18th season of the franchise, Power Rangers Samurai. A rearrangement of Kaniel's version was used for 2013's Power Rangers Megaforce, changing some lyrics to reflect that season. Another rearrangement is currently being used for Power Rangers Dino Charge.
