Where Mortal Kombat got their theme song from.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

So I was playing MK3 on my PC having a blast, and went into a sort of MK frenzy info mode.
I found out that Midway actually got the MK theme song from a group called 2 unlimited from a song called Twilight Zone.

Twilight Zone was released in March of '92, where the First Mortal Kombat game came out in August '92.

Here's the 2U song.


And for comparison, the MK song.


Oh, you sneaky ducks at Midway.

"The Immortals" came up with the song called "Tehcno Syndrome" in 1993 which was used in the commercial. They stole their tune from "Twillight Zone" by 2 Unlimited, which came out in 1992. This is what their original edition sounded like:


Then later on they changed it in 1995 for the movie theme:
