[[folder: Thunder Force IV ]]

The short version is the entire soundtrack qualifies, but highlights are:
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkPa1V-yKDM Lightning Strikes Again]]'', the intro. A kickass way to start the game.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FvKczaUwI4 Tan Tan Ta Ta Ta Tan]]'', the config screen music. This is actually something of a trademark theme for the series, first appearing in ''Thunder Force II'' (as the config music and in a slower variant for the loading screen in the X68k version. As opposed to the brief few seconds you hear it in the Genesis/MD version.) Then later being in TFV and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaAnnBw20bM VI]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7rSbXMProc Don't Go Off]]'', the stage select theme.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJE-iAE1Mt8 Fighting Back]]'', Stage 1A
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OusZtFBSAm8 ''Best of Thunder Force'' Version]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlmbkKtjfSc Evil Destroyer]]'', Stage 1 boss.
** Arranged on the OST album as ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZJ_vPq61zE Remained Revolution]]'', which combines it with ''Lightning Strikes Again'' for maximum rocking.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKvKOx4uIPg Space Walk]]'', Stage 2A.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1JGsULXDSk Attack Sharply]]'', Stage 2 boss.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEnYrJynuSc The Sky Line]]'', Stage 3A.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHX2M6xHXnI Simmer Down]]'', Stage 3 boss.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOzgUtumOo0 Sand Hell]]'', Stage 4A.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFmQWWuy5i0 Strike Out]]'', Stage 4 boss.
* The [[BattleshipRaid appropriately]] named ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toilpOQUPu0 Battle Ship]]'' for Stage 5.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsS_cJDsacI ''Best of Thunder Force'' Version]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FVoqcl4tgk Stranger]]'', Stage 5 boss
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkM0mtag1lQ Neo Weapon]]'', the MidSeasonUpgrade theme.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2iBz635tXQ Great Sea Power]]'', Stage 6.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf6vqGXQfOg Sea of Flames]]'', Stage 7.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTQIiIKummw Metal Squad]]'', Stage 8. A huge fan favorite and arguably the most popular track in the series. If someone names their favorite song in the game, it's probably going to be this one.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F88cL6cFBI ''Best of Thunder Force'' Version]]
** Later rearranged and updated with live guitars in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMDywk0BUwI Broken Thunder Album]]. It rocks of course.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzJrKcTxwvE Down Right Attack]]'', Stage 9.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vw2d3_aEC8 War Like Requiem]]'', the final boss theme. Which takes the epic final battle theme motif established in TFIII, and multiplies it by a factor of kickass.
* The ending themes: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGrCMoKZJS0 Shooting Stars]]'' for Easy, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2JdTuFR_gw Silvery Light of the Moon]]'' for Normal, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgWxlkiatoY Light of Silence]]'' for Hard, and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UidsHAbwE_U Love Dream]]'' for Maniac.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_YUa-tclPM ''Best of Thunder Force'' Version]] of ''Silvery Light of the Moon''.
** ''Love Dream'' as a full-length Japanese song, found [[http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/275287-Translation-of-lyrics-for-Love-Dream-(Thunder-Force-4) here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o_8aL9ATmQ here]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObJVuRTIIS4 Stand Up Against Myself]]'', the staff roll theme. Yet another fan favorite.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BncEF6Levo Fuller arrangement]] from the OST.

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL3Aq5hmqjE Beginning of War]]'', the opening.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jST0U-9Awko Attack Point]]'', the stage select theme.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXdYgpCtJUM Legendary Wings]]'', Stage 1. Another popular track that features a clever callback to ''Back to the Fire'' from TFIII.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOzm8k-mhwc Beast Jungle]]'',Stage 2
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zbzINCcgfk Rising Blue Lightning]]'', Stage 3.

** The Broken Thunder Album introduces ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfTCd8Qb_zs Steel of Destiny -Take Off-]]'', the ultimate version of the song that incorporates live guitars. The result is amazing.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qIAkbHCXOQ Duel of Top]]'', the Stage 5 boss theme. Basically, an even more awesome remix of ''Lightning Strikes Again'' from TFIV. Very fitting considering what the boss is.

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09N8By5iy6Q Record of Flight]]'', one of the high score themes that remixes ''Hunger Made Them Desperate'' from TFIII.


[[folder: Thunder Force VI ]]

The music is a bit of a departure from the usual Thunder Force fare, but still has some good tunes and rocking tracks:
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPWPpOZS8T0 Course Select Music]]'', which seems to call back to ''Don't Go Off'' from TFIV.
* ''Ruined Green'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYbztuII3iY 1-A]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJRsO1-0WWs 1-B]] for Stage 1.

* ''Orn Emperor'', the last boss theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzgOztcq2lg Part 1]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRrG57eIGD8 Part 2]]


[[folder: Broken Thunder ]]

The end product of this turned out unfortunate, but it features some music that was originally meant to be used in TFVI before it's DevelopmentHell period. It is awesome:

* ''[[http://youtu.be/TttjlWXoq5k Fire-Leo 05P 'SYRINX']]''
* ''[[http://youtu.be/K39T30KqJ7I Arc Angel]]''
* ''[[http://youtu.be/02RCwMoTn7k Full Metal Goddess]]''
* ''[[http://youtu.be/a4s9xzChhQY Moon of Mind]]''
* ''[[http://youtu.be/6euWGRu6g5Y Moon of Black Rain 'BG-00P']]''
* ''[[http://youtu.be/ubI9m5_U8ls Broken Thunder 'CODE-RVR-03G' -Sword Breaker-]]'' the main theme.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHZvuR8arZA The Justice Ray Part 3]]'' Fun fact: after TFVI was initially canceled, it was used in the Simulation/RPG game Segagaga as the boss theme for the Thunder Force inspired side scrolling segment at the end of the game.
