Creator/TakuIwasaki pulled out all the stops, going UpToEleven for this soundtrack.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT6LFOIofRE "Libera Me From Hell"]] is only played during [[Awesome/GurrenLagann awesome moments]]. How did they manage to make a ''[[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly fusion of rap and opera]]'' awesome? By kicking reason to the curb and going UpToEleven, naturally.
-->'''YouTube Comment''': Listened to this while cooking. [[BeyondTheImpossible Made a gourmet five-course meal. All I had was a bag of flour]].
** Hell, any song with those lyrics (the rapping, not the OminousLatinChanting). From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLdaGXBILWk The Dai-Gurren Dan Theme]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l__jSgTAmQ Kamina's Theme]].
** Then what about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_eNMGYkJCc "Libera Me" cut together with "Rap Is A Man's Soul"]]?
** A little exotism: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zc1bdu_UUY "Libera Me" mixed together with various rap songs including Eminem and Xzibit]]. It's good they didn't attack the Anti-Spiral to this song because the sucker would've instantly exploded from the sheer awesomeness. And it's just ''crowned'' by Simon yelling in his catchphrase at 3:00.
** It may already be in the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' [[AwesomeMusic/{{Homestuck}} section for Awesome Music]], but it needs to be here as well: [[http://tindeck.com/listen/qzwj A mashup of "Libera Me from Hell" and "Upward Movement (Dave Owns)".]] Raw fighting spirit, tempered with cool guy determination, compressed into one awesome song.
** On a related note, from Toby Fox of ''Homestuck'''s music team comes another mashup, [[http://fwugradiation.tumblr.com/post/10331688996/libera-me-from-sburb-full-this-is-a-bit-rushed "Libera Me From Sburb"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krXTZvkRCD4 "Libera Me From Slam"]]. The fad inspired by ''BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden'' of mixing the ''Film/SpaceJam'' theme with everything has produced some awesome music, but this one works a lot better than you'd expect a song that already had lyrics would when given a slamjam mix.
** Another mashup, this time with ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgfWEjpEhsU "I'll Libera Myself From Hell!"]] If this doesn't get you fired up and ready to fight whatever stands in your way, nothing will.
** Adding to the mashups, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=949t3anhQmg TENGEN OPPA GANGNAM LAGANN!!!]]
* In addition to "Libera Me" From Hell, all of the different versions of "Rap Is A Man's Soul" are awesome:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqUsHmtZygg "Rap wa Kan no Tamashii da! Muri wo Toushite Douri wo Kettobasu! Ore Tachi dai Gurren Dan no Theme wo Mimi no Ana Kappo Jitte yo~ Kukiki Yagare!!"]][[labelnote:Or, if you prefer]]Rap is a Man's Soul! We Kick Reason to the Curb to Make the Impossible Possible! Open up Your Ears and Listen to Our Team Dai-Gurren Theme!![[/labelnote]], which is probably the version that comes to mind when one thinks of "ROW! ROW! FIGHT THE POWER!" It plays during many awesome moments.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm0YmRHdyz4 "No Helping It!!"]], an instrumental version that's ridiculously epic, even out of context. Aside from the opening theme, this the very first piece of music we hear in the series, and it accompanies the ActionPrologue. It's also the fanfare they use for the brief recaps that start most of the episodes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GeQK0fOAew "Rap Was a Man's Soul... Right?"]], a surprisingly somber version of a normally triumphant song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mDJbF0HOIA The music that plays]] when Simon and Kamina first break through to the surface.
** The longer version, [[http://youtu.be/V_Z5RFBAX2M Ten wo Tsuke,]] is just plain HEROIC.
** It was even more epic during the Giga Drill scene in Episode 8. Hotblooded speak, epic attacks, AND awesome music.
** And it was [[UpToEleven EVEN MORE EPIC]] during Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann's formation in the movie.
** It was even used as the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann's theme in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ The Third Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-hen]]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dCF6TT0-aU "Break Through The Dream"]], Kamina and Simon's song captures the Super Robot Spirit very well.
* The first ending, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyFlycSVonU UNDERGROUND]]", may qualify. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zavmb2w4QGg The full version]] ''definitely'' qualifies.
* The second ending [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zAbpPTp1FI "Minna no Peace"]].
* Viral's {{Leitmotif}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZz74yFLkvg "Nikopol"]]. That NuMetal feel of the song [[LinkinPark is quite familiar...]] and downright awesome in itself.
* [[http://soundcloud.com/lilyraineve/happily-ever-after-shoko "Happily Ever After"]], the ThemeMusicPowerUp for one of the greatest HesBack ever. It also plays when Team Dai-Gurren storms the Dekabutsu.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKRUKalbx3s "Sorairo Days"]], the Awesome Theme Song.
** Add a bit of sound tweaking, and someone found a way to make it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7kEWyj_xQ8 even more epic.]]
** The only way to make that song more HotBlooded? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNhRljqvXL0 Let Masaaki Endoh sing it]]. Really now, is there anything JAM Project ''can't'' make more awesome?
** And then there's this awesome English Fandub. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4f7np2sGMY For best results, synch it with the actual openings, then mute the original. It's a whole different experience when you can understand the lyrics.]] Then [[http://youtubedoubler.com/?video1=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DT4f7np2sGMY&start1=0&video2=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPKRUKalbx3s&start2=&authorName=billyzray click this link.]] Immediately mute the video on the right. Watch the ensuing awesomeness.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNBVzfFApIU THIS]] version. There are NO WORDS that describe its awesomeness.
** Shoko Nakagawa and T.M.Revolution perform a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZunX3KhDSfE duet]]. Awesomeness ensues.
** Want to hear another awesome duet? Listen to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9gv9n4_BHU duet]] between Shoko Nakagawa and Kalafina! It's epic beyond all belief!
** "Sorairo Days"...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz7r0KGtuPw sung by the cast of the show]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJo_3B5-1uk To Hell With Gattai]] is that one song that [[ScrewDestiny sends one giant middle finger to fate, destiny, and other preordained shit]] while yelling: '''"WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?"'''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvt3NW97Rko "Get Fired Up, All Of You!"]] is made of epic and so very manly it was used for [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJWQybYBE80 Lord Genome's origin story.]]]] It also holds a special meaning to many ''VideoGame/{{Fraxy}}'' players.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COmMCEMppi8 "Is It Okay To Just Get Fired Up?"]], the villain's victory song usually, music played when the enemy's really starting to get a solid advantage and you wonder the outcome. Not like you should, but... y'know.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_ndaumP7zE "Spinning, Spinning, Spinning, Spiii!?"]] was good, but normal background music until Lagann-hen, at which point it becomes the theme for creating Chouginga Gurren Lagann, Simon AND his mech obliterating everything and crying manly tears of blood, and the Dai-Gurren-dan going on an utter rampage in the name of vengeance and lost brothers.
* [[http://www.jpopsuki.tv/video/Shoko-Nakagawa---Tsuzuku-Sekai/365b86f2a9adfa5bb3ecc5199c4f7f64 "Tsuzuku Sekai"]], the ending theme of the first movie.
* From the second movie, we have [[https://soundcloud.com/christian-kourbelis/sorairo-days-tengen-toppa "Sorairo Days -Tengen Toppa EDITION-"]], played during the final battle, and the ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL740l_S5Ng "Namida no Tane, Egao no Hana"]]. There are two versions of "Sorairo Days" appended with Tengen Toppa EDITION. If it also has Lagann EDIT then it's from the movie, the other one splices the tune of "Tsuzuku Sekai", "Happily Ever After" and a third song into it for an interesting but not quite as dramatic form of awesome. Can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNBVzfFApIU here]].
* Also from the second movie: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1IVX9P9kVk "My XXX is the Best in the Universe".]] In the same vein as the famous "Row Row Fight the Power", but with brand new lyrics and a beat that will pierce the heavens.
* For those into the futuristic style, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE2Qz09leqQ "The Blue Monday E"R"ectrical Parade"]], played during some Mugann battles.
* It's different from most examples here, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i28nvKVEVMk Nia's Theme]] is pretty much SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments in music form... and a TearJerker if you know what happens to her. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRF4Rz8vhJk "Love Conservative"]] is even more beautiful. And sad.
* The second arc of the show has some new battle themes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KowGpYX5WKI How's it! My trumpet is awesome right!]] is the assault/victory theme of the Anti-Spiral forces, and the distorted noises really show that humanity is dealing with a whole new kind of horror.
