A smart collection of rock tunes as played by the band 'The Barbusters' during the film. The title track was penned by Bruce 'The Boss' Springsteen but the cd is out of print.

Special note, the track 'Got No Place to Go' is actually performed and sung by Michael J. Fox - not just a good actor with impeccable comic timing.Update Us

Soundtrack is AMAZING! Johm Milius first told Basil Poledouris to create the score first, and by using that template, Milius directed the film.

What else is there to say, the score for Conan the Barbarian is among the best ever created! From the melodic tones to the rousing themes, it gives the movie credibility, and in a movie where dialoge is few, the score helps progress the movie from light hearted moments to gruesome battles. EPIC! Truly, EPIC!Update Us
