300 Soundtrack

Have you watch 300? Do you know its soundtrack?

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 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 also used in one of the movie's DVD advertisements. The opening lines of the track Come And Get Them are "Pherto - Parte to" (φέρτο - πάρτε το) translating as "give it - come and get it". It is said that Leonidas exclaimed Molōn labe! (Μολὼν λαβέ) when asked by Xerxes to surrender. The opening words of Returns A King translate as "I am trembling / I am frightened of / Our returned king".

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 [1].
