Song Trivia For Karate Kid fans, the most 'legendary' unreleased song from the movie was featured in the beach fight scene.

The song, called "The Ride", by band 'The Matches', has finally been officially released in mp3 format, both individually and in the form of a 5 track EP.

It is a must have for any Karate Kid fan. Thanks for this should go to band member and song writer Geoffrey Rose, who has managed to get his music released! The other unreleased song by Broken Edge called "Please answer me" is so far not released, but it is rumoured to exist in some format!
