V for Vendetta: Music From The Motion Picture is the soundtrack from the 2006 film V for Vendetta, released by Astralwerks Records on March 21, 2006. Most of the music was written by Dario Marianelli. Other artists include Julie London, Cat Power and Antony and the Johnsons.


The track "Remember, Remember" uses the "national anthem" part of the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, and "Knives And Bullets (And Cannons Too)" incorporates the piece in its final two minutes.

The second track in the ending credits is "BKAB" by independent producer Ethan Stoller. It features excerpts of speeches by Malcolm X and Gloria Steinem. It also samples two Bollywood songs one of which is "Chura ke dil meraaa .. goriya chali", composed by Anu Malik, a Bollywood music director.

Several songs used in the film were omitted from the soundtrack. These included the first track to be played in the background of the movie's ending credits, "Street Fighting Man" by The Rolling Stones. Beethoven's 5th Symphony, and "Long Black Train" by Richard Hawley. "Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolph and James Rich are also omitted. Also the beginning of the eggie in a basket scene the jukebox played "Astrud Gilberto & Stan Getz: The Girl From Ipanema."
