Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie: Original Soundtrack Album is the licensed soundtrack to the 1995 Twentieth Century Fox film Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. It was released by Fox Records and Atlantic Records on June 8, 1995 on Audio CD and Compact Cassette.

Album info[edit]

Despite several of the songs heard in the movie being well known and older, the album featured the highest profile musical talent the series had been associated with up until that point. The music of Van Halen, They Might Be Giants, Devo, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Roxette, Dan Hartman, and Buckethead was used throughout the film. The single released to promote the soundtrack was Shampoo's Trouble, although the commercials for the film used both this and Snap's hit "The Power".
