A dramatic, cinematic, and emotive rock track. Lonely, spacious guitar is joined by big drums, a wandering bassline, and flourishes of piano until the noisy guitar climax. Haunting, wordless vocals add texture. Perfect for moody introspection, falling in love, relationship drama, and breakups. Male Vocals, Indie Rock Music, Post-Rock
An anthemic rock theme. Pounding drums and jangly guitars support a melody that will get stuck in your head. Straight out of a 90s teen drama, also a great reality/documentary theme. Anything needing a sense of youth, optimism, forward motion, or honest rock & roll will work well with this track. Instrumental, Rock Music, 1990s Rock
A brash and speedy punk tune with lots of stops and starts. Classic punk beats, loud electric guitars, and rattling picked bass guitar make for an exciting and noisy track. Perfect for scenes of youthful rebellion, 90s high school antics, car chases, and extreme sports. Instrumental, Indie Rock Music, Punk
A solo classical piano piece. The theme travels through modulations before returning to the original key for a moving, emotional, and slightly sinister finale. Perfect for wistful memories tinged with sadness, ghosts dancing in an ornate ballroom, and eerie Korean horror films. Instrumental, Classical Music, Classical Piano
Classic Chicago style electric blues with lead guitar. The band lays back for the first cycle, building to a big climax on the repeat.

Lots of stops and starts that could work for comedic effect. This track has a timeless city feel. Instrumental, RnB Music, Detroit (Motown) Soul
A late 90s / early millenium style hip hop instrumental. Sparse drums, finger snaps, and a swaggering bass line lay the foundation for the tiptoeing pizzicato string melody. Fun, sneaky, and cocky all at the same time. Perfect for reality TV, a character sneaking around the house, or even comedy. Instrumental, Hip Hop Music, Hip Hop
A pummeling metal track. Relentless kick drum propels the song under monster guitar riffs and exploded-speaker bass. The interlude allows a brief respite with distant guitar and a drum solo, before launching back in with a blistering guitar lead. Extreme sports, car chases, wrestling, and bad guys. Instrumental, Rock Music, Heavy Metal
Catchy, edgy minor key rock theme with acoustic and electric guitars, in the style of the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" theme. Bouncy and danceable yet tense, makes a great show intro or theme song. Instrumental, Action Music, Action Adventure Rock
A vaguely suspenseful funk / hip hop track that plays around with the possibilities of a one-note bass line. This 60 second spot would work perfectly as segment underscore for a documentary or reality show, video game level music, or montages of activity. A quirky, weird, modal, and repetitive track, Instrumental, Theme Music, Game Show Music
A long, ambient, droning piece... very creepy and tense. At over 9:00, this track is useful for adding tension to an extended scene, or editing into pieces for lots of smaller spooky cues.

Ends with a cinematic bang. Perfect for edgy car commercials, action trailers, and underground goth clubs. Instrumental, Electronic Music, Dark Electo
Steel drums!! Need some steel drums? You've come to the right place. If you need sunny island or Caribbean vibes, this will do it.

What would the music sound like if you walked into an exclusive nightclub for robots? Probably like this.

A classic silent film era track. Fun and lighthearted, the song steps gingerly along with tuba, acoustic guitar, banjo, and piano intercut with brushed snare drum solos. An insouciant trombone warbles a chromatic melody on top. Great in advertising, cartoons, speakeasies, & 1920s/30s documentaries. Instrumental, Comedy Music, Comedy Jazz
A cold, austere, and slightly creepy track in the style of NIN. Drum machines and synths are joined by a chiming chromatic melody. The crushing chorus arrives as a surprise.
